2019 Lincoln MKC
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, comfortable high-end runabout. Sales begin in summertime 2018 with the MKC continuing to roll out of Ford’s Louisville, Kentucky factory.
Lincoln hasn’t announced pricing or provided an indicator of the readily available trim levels, but we expect the MKC to continue in four trims– a base Premiere, a mid-grade Select, an upmarket Reserve, and a range-topping Black Label– with rates increasing just marginally over the 2018 model.
2019 Lincoln MKC Design
For the 2019 model year, Lincoln has actually disposed the MKC’s double-wing grille, changing it with a household face that a lot more carefully resembles the look pioneered by the Continental and refined by the Navigator. The rectangular, chrome-heavy grille looks considerably more refined than the plastic-heavy double-wing of yesteryear. The slightly reshaped headlights aren’t as remarkable a departure from the 2018 model as the grille, however Lincoln’s designers have subtly restyled the front lights to better match the brand’s new style language. Changes to the back are much subtler, amounting to little bit more than some extra chrome trim.
2019 Lincoln MKC Changes
Changes in the cabin are similarly small, although Lincoln did take the opportunity to up the quality of its products, especially in the range-topping Black Label, which continues to provide three interior design themes– 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 styles is a new Rialto Green shade for the leather with black ash wood trim.
The bigger changes in the cabin been available in the devices lineup. A wifi location, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are all standard, as are forward-collision cautions with automatic emergency situation braking. On the security front, clients can tack on numerous other active assistants, consisting of active park assist, lane departure warning, and blind-spot displays with rear cross-traffic alert.
2019 Lincoln MKC Engine
While Lincoln has issued a rather impressive exterior refit and attended to some glaring imperfections for the 2019 MKC, its changes under the hood amount 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 automated transmissions, which is rather frustrating considering the new-for-2019 8-speed automatic coming to the MKC’s huge brother, the Nautilus.
