There are new details and rumors about new vehicle from Ford Company. The upcoming 2016 Lincoln MKX had its debut at the Beijing Motor Show, earlier this year. New MKX is the first SUV that Lincoln presented outside the USA. Lincoln referred to the MKX Concept displayed in Beijing auto show design “suggestion,” but I guarantee you that most of the concepts lines such as the side panel creases, the hood strakes, and the split-wing grille will be reflected in the final version.
Design – Exterior and Interior
In comparison to today’s chubby MKX, the current Lincoln MKX 2016 has muscle and sophisticated, long fender arcs and lithe body, with a perfect tapered roofline. Lincoln’s trademark fragmented grille is awesomely performed with slim, horizontal slats that flow into similarly LED sign lights and delicate headlight units. The LED rear lighting enables an ultra-thin take on Lincoln’s full-width taillight concept. It is also equipped with a potent-looking pseudo spoiler that is unified into the lift-gate just beneath the window.
Similar with the MKC, which is based upon the Ford Escape but appears rather different, the MKX is suitably differentiated from its next-generation Ford Edge genealogical. This is a plus for the Lincoln MKX 2016. Due to the datum that this is a model, 21-inch rolls is the option for the new model, but unlike some show cars, the draft design could really get wheels this size. The present MKX offers wheels ranging between 18-22 inches in diameter.
Recently, Lincoln is not really flaunting the 2016 Lincoln MKX interior. Ford previously announced it would raise using buttons and knobs in its cars. Therefore, there is high expectation that Lincoln will follow the same path, utilizing less of the capacitive touch switchgear that controls the MKZ sedan. Majority of the people are eager to see whether the most waited MKX comes with a new variation of the My Lincoln Touch following news that the car manufacturer is cutting relation with Microsoft in favor of the current QNX-based infotainment system. QNX operates as the foundation for infotainments in other vehicle manufacturers like Chrysler and BMW in which both usually receive high points.

In Mustang, this engine can offer 280 pound feet of torque and 300 horsepower. Second engine will be 2.3-liter turbocharged Eco Boost 4-cylinder engine that provides 285 horsepower. The guaranteed thing is that the Lincoln MKX 2016 will be equipped with front-wheel-drive as standard while all-wheel-drive will be an option. These engines will be mated with 6-speed automatic transmission, but it relies with realization of the automatic transmissions of 9 and 10-speed.
