The 2017 Lincoln MKX
On the outside the Lincoln MKX is a refined crossover that conceals its generous cargo capacity pretty well. The split-wing grille flows nicely into the sharp headlights. The wheel lineup is consistently sharp and stylish. The blockish rear end of previous models has been replaced with a more fluid design. From a purely aesthetic standpoint, the 2017 MKX can stand up against any of its competitors.
Control the Drive
Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is standard. The system directs power to individual wheels to provide optimal traction at all times. The AWD is paired with a standard 303-Horsepower, 3.7L GTDI V6 Engine. While that should be enough power for almost any driving scenario, you can opt for the available 2.7L GTDI. That will not only get you increase output to 335 horsepower, it will also give you a modest increase in fuel economy. But, while the MKX is powerful, the most important thing is how that power is controlled.
On that note, Lincoln Drive Control with Continuously Controlled Damping is standard in the 2017 Lincoln MKX. Within LDC there are three selectable drive modes: Comfort, Normal, and Sport. In Comfort mode, suspension and steering are smooth and relaxed. Meanwhile, Sport mode stiffens the response and allows drivers to experience a more athletic drive. In every drive mode, an array of sensors adjusts the suspension damping within milliseconds of detecting a change in driving conditions. Finally, Electric Power-Assisted Steering
In Canada, most Lincoln vehicles come in two trim levels: Select and Reserve. The two trims offer most of the same performance specs. They share the same standard engine, AWD, transmission, brakes, et c. Additionally, there is crossover in terms of luxury and comfort. Both the Select and Reserve MKX offer SYNC 3, Auto Hold, heated, 10-way adjustable Bridge of Weir Deepsoft Leather seats; leather-wrapped steering wheels, BLIS with cross-traffic alert, and more. Needless to say, you don’t need to pick the Reserve trim to enjoy a comfortable driving experience. But, the Lincoln MKX Reserve does open the door to enhanced automotive luxury.
Key features of the reserve trim include:
- Auto High Beams & Adaptive Headlights
- Panoramic Vista Roof
- 20” Aluminum Wheels
- Heated Rear Seats & Steering Wheel
- Available Revel Ultima Audio System
- Available 22-Way Multicontour Front Seats
