Lincoln plays a significant role on the market of luxury cars. There are plenty of models of all kinds. When it is about crossovers, several models are in offer. One of those is MKX. It is a mid-size luxury crossover, which was originally launched in 2006, as 2007 year model. After many years of production, and just one bigger update, it was about time to see the second-generation model. New model was for the first time presented at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show, while production model made its debut this year in Detroit. It will come as 2016 year model. When it is about 2017 Lincoln MKX, it is still hard to make some prediction about possible improvements. Since it will be the second year of productions, it is hard to believe that we will see some bigger changes.
2017 Lincoln MKX details
It is expected that 2017 Lincoln MKX will come pretty much the same as 2016 year model, which comes as an all-new. It will feature the same outside look, which is completely adapted to the company’s new design language. You will see a recognizable front fascia with familiar blade-like lighting and split-wing grille, and also with plenty of other new details that come with new second-generation model. Second generation of this luxury crossover comes with much aggressive and modern appearance. For the 2017 MKX we can only expect some minor tweaks like new colors etc. The cabin is also expected to come with the same characteristics as 2016 year model. Only thing that we can expect is to see 2017 Lincoln MKX with longer list of standard features.
2017 Lincoln MKX engine
Changes under the hood aren’t expected neither. The base 2017 Lincoln MKX will be powered with 3.7 liter V6 Duratec engine, which is good enough for 305 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Optional engine will be a 2.7 liter EcoBoost, which delivers 330 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque. Beside more power, this engine is also characterized by much better fuel economy. Both engines will use the same 6-speed automatic transmission, with FWD configurations as standard and AWD as optional.
