2015 Lincoln MKC
What a good looking SUV this turns out to be.
Looking pretty much as good as the concept they showed us last year (Subaru should take a lesson, it can be done)
The interior looks great too, with buttons and real switches!
The seems to be no visible traces of the Escape it is based on.
I drove the new Escape a couple of time and came out very impressed. The new Lincoln version will be powered by an even more powerful 2.3 Liter Ecoboost with 275HP!
(The already great 2.0 Liter with 240HP is standard)
Let’s hope this does better than the MKZ sedan for Lincoln. While the MKZ is a nice car, it is way too close to the Fusion. For $15 000 more.
And let’s also hope they price this right this time. An Escape Titanium with the 2.0 Liter is already around $31 000. The popular Audi Q5 starts at around $39 000.
If Lincoln prices the MKC above the Q5, they will be killing it…
UPDATE: Official price starts at $34 000 for the 2.0 Liter version.
I think this is exactly where it should be. the 2.0 Liter is a great engine. Smoother and more powerful than the VW 2.0 Turbo used in the base Q5.
A good move from Lincoln!
