2016 Lincoln MKX Arrives at Dealerships Priced at $38,995


DEARBORN, Michigan — The all-new 2016 Lincoln MKX midsize crossover is on sale now at Lincoln dealerships with a starting price of $38,995, including a $925 destination charge.

Base pricing reflects an $800 reduction compared to the 2015 MKX.

The top-of-the-line 2016 MKX with all-wheel drive and an optional 2.7-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine starts at $43,520, including shipping.

In comparison, the top-of-the-line 2015 MKX with a 3.7-liter V6 engine starts at $41,745, including shipping.

The second-generation MKX competes in a crowded segment that includes the Acura MDX, BMW X5 and Lexus RX 350.

Lincoln is touting the MKX as a crossover that delivers "quiet luxury."

It is equipped with a standard 3.7-liter V6 engine rated at 303 horsepower. The optional 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine delivers 335 hp. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.

This is the first Lincoln to offer pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection. The system automatically applies the brakes if it detects that a collision is imminent.

A 13-speaker Revel sound system is optional on the Lincoln MKX Select and Reserve models.

Edmunds says: There are many good reasons, from pricing to safety features, for premium crossover shoppers to check out the all-new Lincoln MKX.
