Comfort and Convenience

Like the rest of the Lincoln SUVs, the Lincoln MKX has comfortable seating for four, with a roomy second row and an interior decked out in upscale materials. All models are standard with heated, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, with the available option of 22-way adjustable massaging seats, as well as heated seating for the second row.

The 2018 Lincoln MKX also comes with many convenience features, including:

  • Ambient lighting, for complementing your mood with seven distinct colors.
  • Hands-free liftgate, for effortlessly opening the rear cargo area.
  • Auto-folding power mirrors, for automatically folding the mirrors when you lock the doors.
  • Panoramic Vista Roof®, for enjoying some fresh air and abundant sunshine.


The 2018 Lincoln MKX is equipped with a 303-horsepower 3.7L V6 engine, which is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. For even more power, then choose the 335-horsepower 2.7L V6 engine. Although the 2.7L V6 delivers more power, it expertly maintains its efficiency to rewards it drivers with an EPA-estimated 18 city/25 highway MPG.1

For dynamic and smooth shifting, the Lincoln MKX utilizes transmission controls on the instrument panel. With this feature, you can switch between different driving modes for a customized ride. Choose the Sport mode for an enhanced performance feel, or use the paddle shifters for a more responsive and engaging ride.


The 2018 Lincoln MKX is outfitted with the latest SYNC 3® system, which is an advanced infotainment system. Capable of understanding voice commands, this system will respond to your directions, so you can keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. 

To make your rides even safer, the Lincoln MKX comes with a suite of safety features, such as:

  •  Blind Spot Information System. This safety aid warns you of approaching vehicles in your blind through an indicator light on the side-view mirror.
  • Cross-traffic alert. If this system detects an oncoming vehicle as you're backing out of a parking spot, it'll send an audible alert, as well as a signal in the message center.
  • Rain-sensing wipers. When it starts to rain or snow, these high-tech wipers automatically activate to one of five levels of sensitivity.


Despite its practicality, the Lincoln MKX is a high-style SUV with many eye-catching features and a sleek design. Subtle chrome touches and shapely contours enhance the profile and look of the Lincoln MKX, while the twin-wing grille and unique headlight shapes set it apart from the pack.

Inside, the Lincoln MKX mixes a logical layout with expressive lines and classic palettes. The plush leather upholstery and contrasting color themes emphasize modern luxury while keeping with the classic appeal and elegance Lincoln SUVs are known for.
