Let's jump right in.

2019 Lincoln MKC vs 2019 Ford Escape: Performance

If you're looking for a mighty smooth ride for your daily commutes and adventures, these two models deliver.

The Lincoln MKC is standardly powered by a 2.0L I-4 engine. It generates up to 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, allowing you to conquer anything in your path.

The Ford Escape, meanwhile, falls slightly behind with its 2.5L I-4 standard engine. With only 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque, you might be left wanting a little more strength under the hood.

The Lincoln SUV also offers an available upgraded engine. Its 2.3L Twin-Scroll I-4 elevates your drives with up to 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque.

The Ford model offers two additional engines. However, the top 2.0L EcoBoost® produces 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. This isn't much of an upgrade when you consider it's the same specs as the Lincoln MKC standard engine.

Lincoln MKC vs Escape: Technology

No drive is complete without a suite of technology that helps you enjoy your time behind the wheel. There are a lot of similarities when it comes to the tech found in these SUVs. Both offer ambient lighting in a plethora of configurable colors, as well as a multimedia system powered by SYNC® technology.

The Lincoln MKC comes standard with a SYNC® 3 system. It features a stunning 8-inch touchscreen display that gives you access to smartphone integration, apps, SiriusXM® Radio, and much more.

The Ford Escape also has the SYNC® 3 system. However, it's only available on higher trims. Instead, the Escape comes standard with the SYNC® system that only specializes in Voice Recognition and comes with a much smaller display.

Another advanced feature in the 2019 Lincoln MKC is the available Enhanced THX® II Certified Audio System. This takes your music to new heights with 14 speakers and 700 watts of power.

Unfortunately, the 2019 Escape's available Sony® sound system offers just 10 speakers and isn't as progressive.

Lincoln MKC vs Ford Escape: The Choice Is Yours

Clearly, both Lincoln and Ford vehicles are great for hitting the roads of Chalfont, Doylestown, and Warminster. However, with the elevated performance and more technological improvements, we think you're going to love driving the Lincoln MKC. Don't take our word for it, though.
