Love this vehicle
Overall, I'm 6 months in and love this vehicle! The quietness of the interior, performance, people/cargo hauling capability, park-ability, fuel economy (24 hwy), and beautiful lines are all a treat. I'm biased maybe, but I really like how this vehicle looks. The lines are simple, unique, elegant. That and the size is just perfect, being easy to park, yet taking 4 people in roomy luxury pretty much anywhere. On top of that, the base model has all the creature comforts I want and a few more. With bluetooth connectivity that is pretty seamless (phone, Pandora, google-maps), nice leather heated seats, remote start, and comfortable roomy rear seats. Flip the button and the rear seats go down and you have a great cargo cavern to load up with whatever. From a winter/capability standpoint, the AWD system seems to just always get traction...where my prior RWD 4x4 would fishtail or delay pulling out of the subdivision the torque and engine weight up front w/ an assist from the back wheels seems much more stable/capable for 99% of my needs. That, and it's really hard to get stuck (especially if you shut off traction control, which was not obvious at first) when you need engine rev's to get out. I've also towed a good size trailer with it and it was rock solid. All in all, a very nice package with many creature comforts at a high value.

The 2018 Lincoln MKX has a lot to offer shoppers who are searching for a midsize luxury crossover SUV. Roomy and comfortable, the MKX is also more affordable than some other luxury crossovers.

One of the key strengths of the 2018 MKX is the sheer abundance of features that come standard. That means every MKX gets xenon headlights, keyless ignition and entry, power-adjustable heated front seats, and the Sync 3 infotainment system with a central 8-inch display screen.

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 2018 Lincoln MKX with quite a bit of technology and luxury equipment. You can add, for example, a 360-degree parking camera system, adaptive steering, an automatic parking system or even 22-way power-adjustable front seats. Part of the Lincoln's appeal is that, depending on your trim level, you can get a lot of equipment for a competitive price.

Powering the 2018 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. 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. We suggest avoiding the optional big wheels, though; they don't do the ride quality any favors.

Although there are some great choices for a midsize luxury crossover, the 2018 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 to research and find the right combination of trim and options for your MKX.
