2010 Lincoln MKX Review

(3 Stars)  Plays like Shaq, wants LeBron Money

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Based on the Ford Edge, the MKX is Lincolns answer to the luxury crossover market. It shares this overcrowded segment with the Japanese and German marquees, which make it a tough segment to run in.

The MKX only offers a power train option. Power is supplied by a 3.5 liter V-6 that makes 265 hp and 250 ft-lbs of torque. Power can be transferred through standard 18" wheels in either front or all wheel drive configuration, through a six speed transmission. With this configuration, the MKX can tow 3500 lbs. and still gets 20 combined mpg.

Features abound on the MKX. With only one trim level, most of the equipment you will need is taken care of in the standard package. This offers 18" wheels, rear parking sensors, power lift gate, dual zone climate control, heated and cooled leather seating. There are several packages offered with a variety of options as well, from the panoramic sunroof to a rear DVD entertainment system. Or from a hard drive based, THX certified audio system to 20 or 22" wheels and sport tunes suspension.
