What’s New for the 2015 Lincoln MKX?
Lincoln has not made any changes for the 2015 model year.
2015 Lincoln MKX Exterior
The 2015 Lincoln MKX has stood the test of time, last undergoing a redesign in 2011. The front grille grabs your attention while the subtle styling is easy on the eyes. Riding on 18 inch wheels (20 and 22 inch are available), the MKX crossover looks good in any environment.
2015 Lincoln MKX Performance
Under the 2015 Lincoln MKX’s hood is a 3.7-liter V6 that can lash out with 305 horsepower. Mated to a six speed automatic transmission, the MKX can hit 60 mph in eight seconds. Standard with front wheel drive (all-wheel drive is optional) the transmission includes sport mode, sport-shift button, and paddle shifters.
2015 Lincoln MKX Efficiency
With the 3.7-liter V6 under the hood you’d expect low mileage but the 2015 MKX will prove you wrong. A crossover, the MKX is lighter than most small sport utility vehicles, resulting in higher mileage. Overall, the 2015 Lincoln MKX squeezes every drop of gas to its limit for a competitive 18 city/26 hwy mpg.
2015 Lincoln MKX Interior
The 2015 Lincoln MKX is designed to carry five adults in complete comfort. The front seats have excellent support (seat heaters included). Although it could use some more cargo space, the console, door panels, and glove box offer easy access for anything you may need to grab quickly. Although mechanically similar to the Ford Edge, the MKX carries the quality materials you’d expect in a Lincoln, setting it above many other premium vehicles. The MyLincoln Touch centerpiece and finish gives the cockpit a sophisticated look and feel that can compete with the German brands.
2015 Lincoln MKX Safety
The IIHS listed the 2015 Lincoln MKX as a “Top Safety Pick” and it earned four stars from the NHTSA. Stability control, curtain airbags, blind spot monitors, and a rearview camera all come as standard equipment. Adaptive cruise control and collision warning are also offered in an optional package.
