There’s something about the 2017 Lincoln MKC’s split-wing grille that makes it look like it has its eyes squinted a bit to better focus on the prize. Of course, the SUV crossover is actually doing no such thing, but it does make for a good visualization especially when you put it in the context of the car manufacturers doing everything in their designing power to deliver one awesome lineup for 2017.
Navigating the Crossover Market
The 2017 Lincoln MKC will be entering right smack in the middle of the fray in the compact luxury market. For this, it will need more than just an eye-catching grille to really pique the interest of the consumers. Fortunately, it does deliver on this aspect with its convenient technology features, coupled with a reliably powerful engine under the hood.
In a market nearing saturation with choices, what makes this iteration of the MKC a certified standout are the steering and handling capabilities, which have so far been lauded as smooth and refined. The continuous-controlled damping suspension (also available in multiple modes) certainly contributes to this feat, but that, of course, comes second in importance to the 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque.
You can choose from the base trim level, Select Package, and Black Label options and determine which MKC version caters more to your needs and best suits your budget. While the higher trim expectedly do have a lot more impressive features in it, the base Premiere level also can hold its own.
