Who The Hell Is Going To Spend $60,000 On A Lincoln MKX? We Found The Guy

Video

Hint: "Alright, alright, alright..."

Lincoln once figured it could get away with slapping on a different (and ugly) front grille to the first generation MKX crossover, which was nothing more than the Ford Edge. That type of cheap badge engineering doesn’t work anymore and, perhaps, it never really did. Just ask "old" GM. Anyway, the second generation Lincoln MKX has arrived and, yes, it’s still based on the also new Ford Edge. Same platforms. Similar, although not exactly the same styling, but there are key differences this time around: the engines.

The new 2016 MKX is offered with either a 3.7-liter V6 or a new 2.7-liter turbo V6, neither of which can be had with the Edge. OK, so that’s a good start. But the almost fully loaded 2016 Lincoln MKX we sampled cost nearly $60,000, as we go into more detail in our latest unboxing review.

That price tag will jump even higher if one opts for the Black Label trim. But a $60,000 MKX that’s not even the most feature-packed? Who’s going to buy this over a BMW X5 or a Lexus RX-350, for example? But we figured out who that person is. Wasn’t that hard. He just so happens to be Lincoln’s official spokesman, actor Matthew McConaughey.
