Lincoln Updates MKC CUV With Navigator’s Nose: For Better or Worse

MKC

Lincoln’s MKC CUV has been a large success for the company since its introduction in 2014. Designed as an entry-level Lincoln with mass-appeal, the MKC has hit the target, with nearly half of all customers coming from anther brand.

Now, three years later, it is time for a ‘new’ MKC, which rides on the same platform as the old one, albeit with a front end borrowed from its Navigator and Continental big brothers. As over half of all MKC customers are women, that market segments preferences are driving development of the new MKC, leading to the front-end design we see here.

The MKC also gains the 2.3L EcoBoost engine found in the Focus RS, albeit tuned and built slightly differently. In MKC trim, this EcoBoost produces 285hp and 305lb-ft of torque. The standard 2.0L EcoBoost making 246hp is also available.

Lincoln is also extending its Black Label program–which you can read more about here–to the MKC program with three new themes called ‘Modern Heritage’, ‘Indulgence’, and ‘Center Stage’. These packages bring the expected luxuries of the Black Label marque.

The 2019 Lincoln MKC arrives at dealerships during this next years summer.
