I just got my MKX. I love it so far. It rides smooth, good power. Sometimes it surprises me with the acceleration. I traded in my Mountaineer and I don't feel I gave up any room or space. I'm getting a lot of looks on the street! The base model has everything you need. I sprung for the vista roof. If you want the nav system or the THX sound system about $5000 more.
I like the fact that all the controls for the audio and temperature are in the steering wheel.
I had a 2006 Mountaineer Premier, and was not in the market. I on a whim drove the MKX and owned one days later. This is the coolest ride ever, fast, smooth, and this thing does everything but brush my teeth. well equipt. All I can say is take one for a ride you will be in heaven on wheels. I am 6'2" guy and have plenty of room, sound system is very nice, and the Nav.
Navigation, automatic windows with ability to open with remote.
My wife did all the research and selected this over the Mazda CX-9 and Highlander. It's her car! We got the Creme' Brulee with Camel interior and she just loves it. The sticker was just over $39,000 and we did the deal for $35,000 even. We went to dealer equipped with the Edmunds TMV analysis and it saved us quite a bit of haggling. We drove the Edge as well, but the Lincoln suspension and interior quality is a big upgrade. Doesn't feel like the same vehicle. We really like the Vista roof and heated/cooled seats. She thinks it's nearly like a convertible. Reliability has been excellent. We like the fact it burns regular gas. All in all, a very nice package.
Vista roof, heated/cooled seats, backup sensor, ride, adaptive headlights
SMART key like Toyota. Manual mode for transmission, darker carpet
Wanted this vehicle from the first time that I saw it and had it delivered in May. I commute 180 miles a day and it has been a pleasure to drive. Great mileage for a SUV and I get tons of admiring looks from other drivers and pedestrians.
The exterior styling and interior layout and the moonroof! A/C seats are a nice touch. The rear heated seats are a bonus for the passengers who get to sit in the very spacious rear seat area.
Some minor fit and finish details and the THX isn't what I thought that it would be
