2016 Lincoln MKX Luxury Crossover Reviewed: Video

If you consider yourself even mildly enthusiastic about vehicle performance, you can safely sit this review out; like the rest of the Lincoln Motor Company stable, the 2016 Lincoln MKX mid-size crossover is not chasing after the sort of luxury/performance cocktail sought by other premium marques.

Instead, the new, second-generation Lincoln MKX is the brand’s latest exhibition of its so-called “quiet luxury” tenet. In the video above, the all-new luxury CUV is reviewed by our good friend Craig Cole from AutoGuide.

According to Mr. Cole, the Lincoln MKX’s “quiet luxury” sensibility means having to put up with some amount of body roll and pitch, although these are things that can be easily overlooked by those for whom a soft ride is key. The MKX performs beautifully even over the spine-shatteringly harsh pavement of Michigan, he asserts, soaking up every bump with aplomb.

As for engines, the 2016 Lincoln MKX offers a standard 3.7-liter V6 with just over 300 horsepower, although the example reviewed here has the reportedly excellent, twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. That mill pumps out 325 horsepower and an astonishing 380 lb-ft of torque.
