The Lincoln MKC is a unique creation from the ground up with an assortment of first-in-class features. Its all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine offers performance while its luxurious interior embraces driver and passengers alike.

MKC’s history

The Lincoln MKC – first introduced as a concept vehicle at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit – represents a critical milestone in the company’s plan to expand its lineup.

Arriving on the heels of the all-new and successful 2013 Lincoln MKZ sedan, the MKC became the second new vehicle in the brand’s plan to introduce four new luxury vehicles by 2016.

The MKC gives Lincoln a compelling offering in the small premium utility vehicle segment, the fastest-growing part of the luxury market. The segment has grown by 25 percent since 2012 and by more than 200 percent since 2009.

Sophisticated style

With a starting MSRP of $33,100, the MKC presents a sleek, sculpted body that helps it stand out among peers.

The unique design also carries through to the interior, where craftsmanship and high-tech combine to offer a warm, luxurious environment. Notably, plush leathers with French stitching, and available Bridge of Weir leather and real-wood trim accentuate the MKC’s elegance and grace.

With seating for five, the MKC offers comfortable seating with second row dimensions listed as 36.8-inches for rear legroom, 52.8-inches for rear hip room and 55.3-inches for rear shoulder room. Cargo volume is 25.2 cubic feet behind the second row.

Under the hood

The MKC comes standard with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which produces 240 horsepower and 270 foot-pounds of torque. Fuel economy ratings are 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway for FWD models and 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway for AWD models.

When equipped with the all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, the MKC offers 285 horsepower and 305 foot-pounds of torque. Fuel economy ratings for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine are 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

The Lincoln MKC is produced at Louisville Assembly Plant in Louisville, Kentucky. Since reaching showrooms during the summer of 2014, the MKC has earned the praises of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which named it Crossover Utility Vehicle of Texas and Luxury Crossover Vehicle last fall.
