2017 Lincoln MKC – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
There’s a lot of standard-issue crossover styling going on in the exterior of this new 2017 MKC. The exclusive design cues are subtle, but they certainly do pay off well, its front fascia is rather a farewell to the split wing design that Lincoln is moving away from.
The grille has that same split wing design but has been slimmed down this time around. Extensive use of chrome in this grille can be noticed right away. To avoid references to Ford Escape, the makers have done the framing for the glass carefully.
This luxury crossover is visually appealing from the rear portion to as the full-width taillights have a 2 piece design and they have been smoothly executed.
The interior cabin of this 2017 Lincoln MKC is just as fine. The centre console holds a large infotainment display with rotary controls. One interesting thing to notice is there’s no shift lever for a manual transmission as pushbuttons have been used instead.
Luxury has been taken to the next level in this cabin as premium materials like Bridge/Weir leather and genuine wood has been used. Most importantly, this cabin also offers a plenty of space for a refined driving experience.
2017 Lincoln MKC – Powertrain and Mileage
Coming from a standard engine is the 2.0-liter EcoBoost which produces 270 lb-ft of torque and 240 hp. Although there’s no V6 option, this Lincoln MKC 2017 seems to do fine with it as a 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged 4 cylinder mill makes 305 lb-ft of torque and 285 hp.
With this engine, the 2017 Lincoln MKC can take a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 7 seconds. The power delivery of this engine is just awesome as it incorporates a twin-scroll turbocharger. Refinement and quietness are enhanced by features like active noise cancellation, a balance shaft system and extra noise insulation.
As both front wheel drive and all-wheel drive is available, mileage differs accordingly. With all-wheel drive, figures of fuel economy go as 18 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on highways and 21 mpg combined. With front wheel drive, figures increase to 20/29/23 mpg respectively.
