We’ve just gotten our first proper look at the next-gen Lincoln MKX thanks to fresh spy shots, which revealed the vehicle would look very similar to the concept that made its debut at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show—and that’s a very good thing.
The shape of the lower air dam is nearly identical, as is the character line running down the side. The twin-spoke wheels, integrated exhaust outlets, and stretched taillights are all there. The front end is slightly different, with the headlights not quite integrating themselves into the grille, though the split-wing grille still attempts to use the LEDs to wrap itself across the vehicle’s face.
The spy shots also revealed two different trims: one with LED headlights with front and rear parking sensors and another with projector lights and sensors only at the rear.
The next-gen Lincoln MKX will launch this year at Mountaineer Lincoln and be the first to benefit from the company’s new deal with Revel by Harman. We can’t wait!
