2016 Lincoln MKX Spied in Production Form; Looks Ready to Break Cover

Spy Shots

Porsche Cayenne better watch its back.

These spy shots of the next-generation Lincoln MKX provide us the first good look at the new luxury crossover and confirm the carmaker will not be veering too far off the design of the concept that debuted in China earlier this year. Two trim levels are on show here. One, the higher trim level, sports full LED headlights, parking sensors front and rear, and large double-spoke alloys. The lower trim model features smaller wheels, rear parking sensors only, and xenon projector headlights.

Up front, the headlights integrate nicely into the grille, albeit not to the extent as the concept, enabling the split-wing grille to wrap across the entirety of the face. At the back, the taillights stretch across the length of the hatch. The new Lincoln MKX will ride on the CD4 platform that underpins the Ford Fusion, Edge and Lincoln MKZ, and that will soon be used by the MKS as well as the Ford S-Max and Taurus. Upon launch, the MKX will come with a choice of a 2.0-liter Ecoboost four-pot and 2.7-liter V6. It will also be the first model in Lincoln’s lineup to feature Harman’s high-end Revel sound system.
