2015 Lincoln MKX Changes

2015 Lincoln MKX is the first SUV model of this company which was presented outside the American continent. In fact, this model was presented at the Motor Show in Beijing  2014. Although presented as a concept, it clearly shows the new aggressive design and a new direction of development. The new MKX will be on sale in the fall of 2014. Sale will start at US markets, and will expand to other world markets. It is interesting that this is one of the first Lincoln models, which will serve to win the non-American markets.

There’s never been a better time to be a car shopper. Unrelenting and abundant competition has raised the bar in all segments and the end result is an automotive landscape in which excellence is the new normal. While this is great news for consumers, it’s bad news for the 2015 Lincoln MKX. Though the MKX is a passable entry in the luxury crossover segment, it’s less accomplished than most other models in its class. In today’s automotive environment, passable simply isn’t good enough.

The Lincoln MKX is the brand’s mid-size crossover. It offers the luxury accommodations and high seating position that premium crossover buyers seek out in vehicles such as the longtime favorite Lexus RX, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Mercedes M-Class. The MKX is joined by a smaller crossover for 2015, the Ford Escape-based MKC. The MKX is itself a near mechanical twin of the Ford Edge, but with a much nicer interior, a quieter ride, and a larger engine.

An all-new version of the MKX is expected soon, for the 2016 model year. For 2015, Lincoln has made no changes to the MKX, which was last redesigned for 2011, bringing new sheetmetal, a much-improved interior, and the love-it-or-hate-it MyLincoln Touch infotainment interface. It’s still a handsome model among its crossover contemporaries, avoiding flashiness with just the right amount of flair. Some are put off by the newest Lincoln grille design, but it works here much better than it does on the larger MKT, for example. The MKX’s interior is especially well finished, with nice quality wood, leather, and trim. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard and look fine, while Lincoln offers 20s and 22s on top of those.

To understand why this Lincoln feels so middling, it’s best to start by taking a look at the areas in which it falls short. Its biggest frailty concerns performance. Both acceleration and braking are merely mediocre a notable deficiency in a segment dominated by models that can snap your head back with a tap of the pedal. Also, its automatic transmission can feel slow-witted due to sluggish downshifts. Another weakness has to do with the crossover’s MyLincoln Touch electronics interface, which can be challenging to learn and frustrating to use.

The 2015 Lincoln MKX’s cabin is well appointed, with handsome stitching, real aluminum accents and mostly satisfactory materials. Here and there you’ll find some cheap-feeling bits, but in general, the MKX’s interior is a nice place to be.

Of more significance is the MyLincoln Touch interface that comes standard in every MKX. It’s a technological tour de force, comprising two driver-configurable information screens, one elegant central touchscreen and a comprehensive voice control system. When it works, it’s awesome. However, many drivers will find the learning curve frustratingly steep, and the system can occasionally be slow to respond to your inputs. The lookalike buttons and touchscreen icons can also be difficult to operate on the road. You might end up loving MyLincoln Touch, but make sure you spend some quality time with it during your test-drive to see if it’s a good fit.

The 2015 MKX has some impressive gear under the hood: a 305-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 yes, that’s the same engine as in the Mustang and a six-speed automatic transmission. It’s quieter here, for sure, but it allows an estimated 0-to-60-mph time of 8.0 seconds, which makes it one of the quicker vehicles in this class (especially for one that weighs more than 4,000 pounds). You won’t find much feedback from the electric power steering system, but it’s hefty and relatively quick. It handles as if it were a class lighter, though; the MKX digs into its share of country roads with gusto. The all-wheel drive system here definitely saps some of that verve and you’ll pay the price in miles per gallon so we’d recommend passing on it unless you often take on snow or mud.

In Edmunds performance testing, an all wheel drive MKX went from zero to 60 mph in 7.3 seconds an unimpressive time for a vehicle in this class, particularly one without an available engine upgrade. The EPA’s fuel economy ratings are 21 mpg combined (18 city/26 highway) with front-wheel drive and 19 mpg combined (17 city/23 highway) with all-wheel drive. The mpg ratings on the AWD MKX are below average for the segment.
