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.
