The 2019 Lincoln MKC continues to represent the entry level of the brand name’s crossover range, controling the bones of the Ford Escape into a competent, comfy high-end runabout. Sales begin in summertime 2018 with the MKC continuing to present of Ford’s Louisville, Kentucky factory.
Lincoln hasn’t revealed rates or offered an indication of the offered trim levels, but we anticipate the MKC to continue in 4 trims– a base Premiere, a mid-grade Select, an upmarket Reserve, and a range-topping Black Label– with prices increasing just partially over the 2018 model.
2019 Lincoln MKC Design
For the 2019 model year, Lincoln has disposed the MKC’s double-wing grille, replacing it with a household face that much more closely resembles the look originated by the Continental and improved by the Navigator. The rectangle-shaped, chrome-heavy grille looks considerably more refined than the plastic-heavy double-wing of the past. The a little improved headlights aren’t as remarkable a departure from the 2018 model as the grille, however Lincoln’s designers have actually discreetly restyled the front lights to much better match the brand name’s new design language. Changes to the back are much subtler, amounting to little more than some extra chrome trim.
2019 Lincoln MKC Changes
Changes in the cabin are likewise minor, although Lincoln did take the opportunity to up the quality of its products, especially in the range-topping Black Label, which continues to use 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). Signing up with those themes is a new Rialto Green shade for the leather with black ash wood trim.
The larger changes in the cabin been available in the equipment lineup. A wifi location, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are all standard, as are forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency situation braking. On the safety front, customers can tack on a number of other active assistants, consisting of active park assist, lane departure warning, and blind-spot screens with rear cross-traffic alert.
2019 Lincoln MKC Engine
While Lincoln has released a rather impressive exterior refit and addressed some glaring shortcomings for the 2019 MKC, its changes under the hood amount to around 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 together with 6-speed automatic transmissions, which is somewhat frustrating thinking about the new-for-2019 8-speed automated coming to the MKC’s big brother, the Nautilus.
