As expected, Lincoln cars came up with a totally new concept of cars named as 2016 Lincoln MKX, at the Beijing Auto Show in 2014. The car has been introduced as a five door crossover vehicle with a front engine and front wheel drive. It is expected to be in the mid-size segment.
Lincoln MKX cars have been manufactured since 2006 by Lincoln Motor Company. In its ten years of business, it is going to have its first major redesign in the form of 2016 Lincoln MKX.
2016 Lincoln MKX: Redesign and Exterior
There have been some significant changes in its exteriors from its predecessors. At front, the grille with split wings is changed. More aggressive grille has been added to give it a total different look. Hood strakes, side panel linings etc. and other features on its body have been made much sharper.
Innovative lighting systems such as dynamic LED lights are also added. These lights are different from other models and are made little bit more triangular. They are also integrated very beautifully in the design of its exteriors. 21 inches alloy wheel is fitted to take it to a totally new level.
2016 Lincoln MKX: Engine and Interior
The specifications about the power train of 2016 Lincoln MKX have not been revealed yet. While its earlier models were equipped with a 3.7 litre V6 engine which produces power up to 305 HP, it is going to be updated in this model. Lincoln Motors can go for Eco Boost technology for the new engine. If it does so, it will have a 2.7 litre Eco Boost V6 engine which will be turbocharged certainly.
This engine will take this car right in competition with latest Mustang and other similar cars. For transmission of power, six speed automatic systems are almost certain and it is also on the current model. It is expected to have a front wheel drive system and an option to have an all-wheel drive also.
Just like engine specs, very little is known about interiors of 2016 Lincoln MKX, too. But there have been talks about replacement of capacitive controls with actual conventional buttons. The better features of earlier models of mkx like premium leather seats, nice audio system, power locks, keyless entry etc. should not be changed.
Ford Motors is planning to take this model global with plans to sell it in USA and China. It is also focused to achieve success in China’s highly competitive market.
