2017 MKX is a awesome ride! I highly recommend!
Peter G, 8/1/2017
I looked all the SUV's from entry level to top level from all brands. This included , Acura, VW, Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Subaru, Lexus, Toyota, Nisan, Jaguar, BMW, Audi, Honda, etc.. None of them had the the full package at this price point. The technology, ride, luxury and performance. Some were close, like the new 2018 Audi. There are some really aggressive rebates and pricing so don't pay over invoice and get the 0% financing. I really enjoy driving this SUV. The one downside has been the MPG but I knew this going in after reading all the reviews. The performance is worth it and 20 MPG blended is not bad to have a twin turbo!
Best car I've ever drove!!

I got a terrific deal on this SUV. I looked at EVERYTHING out there and found this vehicle to be exactly what I wanted. Great power, very comfortable, great ride and plenty of storage. Nice paint and interior is fantastic . The Revel stereo is far beyond what I was looking for. My driving is all types, highways and city driving. My average MPG is 24.9 with regular gas. I've driven Infiniti, BMW, Buick, Ford, Chevy, Jeep and Nissan Suv, but nothing gave all the extras I was looking for at the price. I love this car!
2017 Lincoln MKX is a winner
JohnC, 4/10/2017
I purchased a 2017 Lincoln MKX a week ago and it surely is a pleasure to drive. It has all the safety features including backup camera, warning on cars in other lanes, collision alert, and even will call 911 if the airbags deploy. Since it is push button start and push button transmission a lot of space was made available for storage between the front seats including two "pass thru" storage bins. The Sync 3 entertainment is excellent and is also voice activated as is the navigation system. I really appreciate the radar weather maps which give "in the moment" maps of the local radar--very useful. In summary, the Lincoln MKX is a joy to drive and extremely quiet in city traffic or on the road. Everything works perfectly including the liftgate which has multiple ways of opening it(including waging your foot under the bumper). The 2017 Lincoln MKX is a true winner. After a year of ownership the MIX is greet. No issues or problems. Everything works perfectly. Just took it to dealership for annual maintenance service. Everything checked out OK.
I have moderate back issues and severe neck issues
jean, 7/1/2017
I bought this car for the 22 point adjustable seat. It is great. I can ride for an hour in most cars. When the pain starts, I put on the massage seat! Gets me home pain free. So very thankful. I must tell you the safety features are awesome. I love the cruise control that slows down and speeds up based on the car in front of you. I also love the auto stop and heated steering wheel. Honey I'm in heaven. Basically, this car nearly drives itself and you sit back in the best seat every and enjoy the ride. I've gone from hating to drive due to pain, to loving to drive. Thank you!

More about the 2017 Lincoln MKX

Coming off a full redesign just last year, the 2017 Lincoln MKX has a lot to offer shoppers searching for a midsize luxury crossover SUV. Roomy and comfortable, the MKX is also priced to be more affordable than some other luxury crossovers.

One of the key strengths of the 2017 MKX is the sheer abundance of features that come standard. That means getting features such as xenon headlights, keyless ignition and entry, power-adjustable, heated front seats, and the Sync 3 infotainment system with a central 8-inch display screen on every MKX.

But should you not be satisfied by the standard Premiere trim, there are three other trim levels — Select, Reserve and Black Label — that come with even more features. And with additional option packages or other stand-alone options, you can upgrade your 2017 Lincoln MKX to the forefront of technology and luxury. New for 2017 is the adaptive steering technology found in the Driver Assistance package for the upper two trim levels, Reserve and Black Label. You can also get extras such as a 360-degree parking camera system, an automatic parking system and very comfortable 22-way power front seats.

Powering the 2017 MKX is a standard 3.7-liter V6 engine connected to a six-speed automatic transmission. However, you can also upgrade to an available turbocharged 2.7-liter V6. It delivers a strong 335 horsepower yet still gets a respectable 19 mpg combined (with all-wheel drive). Another option to consider is the adaptive suspension found on the all-wheel-drive MKX that allows for a smooth ride for normal driving but can also tighten up to provide more responsive high-speed handling. Overall, the ride is as comfortable and quiet as you'd want from a luxury vehicle made by Lincoln.

Although there are some great choices for a midsize luxury crossover, the 2017 Lincoln MKX ultimately could be what you're looking for. Because the MKX is heavy in features and options, we encourage you to use Edmunds for research and find the right combination of trim and options for your MKX.
