The 2019 Lincoln MKC continues to represent the entry level of the brand’s crossover range, controling the bones of the Ford Escape into a proficient, comfy luxury runabout. Sales start in summer season 2018 with the MKC continuing to present of Ford’s Louisville, Kentucky factory.
Lincoln hasn’t announced pricing or given a sign of the offered trim levels, however we expect the MKC to continue in 4 trims– a base Premiere, a mid-grade Select, an upmarket Reserve, and a range-topping Black Label– with costs increasing just marginally over the 2018 model.
2019 Lincoln MKC Design
For the 2019 model year, Lincoln has disposed the MKC’s double-wing grille, changing it with a family face that much more closely resembles the appearance pioneered by the Continental and fine-tuned by the Navigator. The rectangular, chrome-heavy grille looks considerably more refined than the plastic-heavy double-wing of the past. The a little reshaped headlights aren’t as remarkable a departure from the 2018 model as the grille, but Lincoln’s designers have actually subtly changed the front lights to better match the brand name’s brand-new design language. Changes to the rear are much subtler, totaling up to bit more than some additional chrome trim.
2019 Lincoln MKC Changes
Changes in the cabin are similarly minor, although Lincoln did take the opportunity to up the quality of its materials, especially in the range-topping Black Label, which continues to use 3 interior decoration styles– Modern (white leather and Argento wood), Indulgence (brown leather with Ziricote wood), and Center Stage (black leather with red piping and Alcantara seat inserts). Joining those themes is a new Rialto Green shade for the leather with black ash wood trim.
The larger changes in the cabin been available in the devices roster. A wifi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are all standard, as are forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency situation braking. On the security front, consumers can tack on several other active assistants, consisting of active park assist, lane departure warning, and blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alert.
2019 Lincoln MKC Exterior
While Lincoln has released a rather outstanding exterior refit and attended to some glaring shortcomings for the 2019 MKC, its changes under the hood total up to roughly nil. The base engine is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder with 245 horse power and 275 pound-feet of torque. A 2.3-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder ups the output to 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque. Both engines work along with 6-speed automatic transmissions, which is rather frustrating considering the new-for-2019 8-speed automated concerning the MKC’s huge bro, the Nautilus.
