For the 2016 model year, the Lincoln MKX is going to get significant style and technology improvements as well as a new, optional 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, but we think what our customers at Mountaineer Lincoln will be even happier to hear about is that despite the upgrades, the upcoming MKX will actually be cheaper than the current model.
The luxury automaker has announced that the 2016 MKX would start at $38,995 after an $895 destination charge, which is exactly $800 less than the $39,795 that the 2015 model would set you back. It’ll come with an impressive number of individual options, including full LED headlights, a full suite of safety tech, all-wheel-drive, and the aforementioned EcoBoost V6.
Though Lincoln currently lists three trim levels on its site, including the Premiere, Select, and Reserve, we also expect a Black Label version to come along later to add even more lavishness to the already luxurious MKX. All in all, it looks like the 2016 Lincoln MKX’s price drop will pay off!
The 2016 Lincoln MKX has become even more luxurious than its predecessors, if you can believe it. The exterior styling is more attractive and mature with a more distinctive look along the rear fenders and enhanced gravitas thanks to the full-width rear LED taillights.
The major improvements are on the inside, however. The automaker claims that a meticulous attention to detail has helped elevate the Lincoln MKX’s craftsmanship and we have to agree at Mountaineer Lincoln. The unique Black Label trim offers four finish options—such as the equestrian-inspired “Triple Crown” scheme—that not only look spectacular but even regale your olfactory senses.
To further set the mood, Lincoln has equipped the 2016 MKX with a new Revel premium audio system, available with either 13 speakers or 19 speakers. Regardless of the one you pick, you’ll be amazed at the clarity and response of the exquisitely accurately reproduced sound, which doesn’t betray even a hint of distortion.
The 2016 MKX is a definite step up from previous models. We can’t wait to have it here!
