Based on the very popular Ford Edge, the 2010 Lincoln MKX is a large crossover SUV that delivers a copious amount of luxury, convenience and cargo hauling capacity. In competition with more expensive crossover vehicles from BMW, Lexus RX-450h, Lexus, Cadillac and Acura, this new MKX will transport five full grown passengers, as far as they care to cruise, with surprising amounts of comfort.
Unibody construction, like that of a car, is utilized to manufacture the Lincoln MKX for 2010. This type of body design accommodates increased fuel efficiency as well as more agile handling and smoother ride quality. Lincoln has opted against offering a third row of seating in favor of allowing the passengers in the two rows that are there to stretch out in luxurious comfort. 40 inches of headroom grace the front while 39 are provided in the rear. An arm-expanding 59 inches of shoulder room are present in both the front and the rear. Additionally, the 56 inches of hip room in the rear is actually 1 inch larger than that of the front. And when it comes to legroom, front passengers experience 40.7 inches while rear passengers are gifted 39.6. This vehicle was designed specifically with full grown adults in mind and five occupants really do fit comfortably.
As far as cargo hauling ability goes, the Lincoln MKX provides 32.3 standard cubic feet and that can be stretched to 68.6 cubic feet by folding down the second row of seating. Standard heated seats, a powered moonroof, a rear DVD entertainment system and loads of other standard luxury features make this an idea of vehicle for all types of professionals that regularly find themselves with the need to haul their clientele. Its impressive inside. It's a Lincoln and that means high quality.
EPA ratings for 2010 Lincoln MKX fuel efficiency are 17/24 mpg city/highway (15/22 for all-wheel-drive models). That efficiency level is delivered from the stock 3.5L 265hp 250 lb-ft V6 engine. Its overall dimensions are 186.5 x 75.8 x 67.3 inches and it rides fluently on top of a 111.2 inch wheelbase. Stability is increased by the 5370 pound gross vehicular weight.
The 2010 Lincoln MKX will remind you of a cross between a luxury sedan and a full-sized luxury SUV like the company's own Navigator. Wherever you are seated inside, visibility is more than adequate. It also offers a segment-small 19.7 foot turning radius that increases your ability to maneuver it without effort. Entry has been made simplistic as well even though the MKX features an 8.2-inch ground clearance measurement. When you add in Sync technology with 911 Assist, the Lincoln Vehicle Health Report (VHR) system with automatic maintenance scheduling, Serious Travel Link and a high powered THK II Certified stereo system, it's hard to deny the appeal of the MKX.
