Q: What's the difference between the 2016 Lincoln MKX and the Lincoln MKC?

A: Though they appear fairly similar on paper, there are a few differences between the 2016 Lincoln MKX and the 2016 Lincoln MKC. The MKC is a compact crossover, so it's going to have smaller overall dimensions than the midsize MKX crossover. Specifically, the MKX has more cargo room, more rear-seat passenger room, a longer wheelbase and a larger V6 engine for additional hp and torque.

Q: Does the 2016 Lincoln MKX get good fuel economy?

A: With multiple available engine options, the 2016 Lincoln MKX has a range of EPA estimates for fuel economy, which tend to fall around the middle of the pack for midsize crossovers. This range includes an EPA estimate for the front-wheel drive, 2.7L V6 engine at 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway to the all-wheel drive 3.7L V6 engine at 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway.1 

Q: How much can the 2016 Lincoln MKX haul?

A: Though it's not the most robust midsize crossover in the market when it comes to towing, when properly equipped, the 2016 Lincoln MKX is capable of towing up to 2,000 pounds.2 The Cargo Utility package provides a range of optional features including a below-floor molded plastic storage bin, tonneau cover, reversible cargo mat and 110-volt power outlet, in addition to the 37.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats or 68.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats.

Q: What are some popular features on the 2016 Lincoln MKX?

A: As the top-of-the-line in the Ford Motor Company's lineup, the 2016 Lincoln MKX has a wide range of standard features that you'd otherwise have to look for higher packages to find and include available remote engine start, hill start assist and torque vectoring control.3 Available features include MyLincoln mobile apps, intelligent all-wheel drive and satin roof-rack side rails.4

Q: How many people can the 2016 Lincoln MKX seat?

A: Like its smaller compact crossover SUV sibling the MKC, the MKX is capable of seating up to five people. However, it provides more rear passenger room for the back seat along with standard heated ten-way power front seats with lumbar support and memory, with available options for heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear outboard seats to keep everyone comfortable in extreme weather.

Reviews for 2016 Lincoln MKX

Overall Rating

4.8 out of 5 (10 reviews)

Smooth and strong

Nice finishes, good power in the ecoboost. Revel Ultima stereo is among the best on four wheels. Sport mode offers a nice stiffening of suspension and steering.


  • Power: Turbo works
  • Reliability: Flawless
  • Technology and Entertainment: Stereo throws down


  • Seat Comfort: Standard seat could adjust more
  • Visibility: Hard to see space when parking — camera helps
  • Styling: Front grill is wing style — not as bad as the ‘15 but the new style on nautilus is way better

- Jake Hammond, 2016 Lincoln MKX

Best vehicle I’ve ever owned

All wheel drive, great sound system, comfortable quiet ride, and lots of room.


  • Cabin Noise: Relaxing quiet ride
  • Interior Space: I can wear my fedora when I drive, lots of headroom.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Sound is great, iPhone integration hands free calling, satellite radio is the best.


  • Seat Comfort: I’m a big guy and the seat is small, I’d prefer a bench seat, but it’s not a huge issue.
  • Power: Went from a V8 to a V6 very noticeable again not I huge issue
  • Fuel Economy: Went from 28mpg to about 19.5mpg. Not much more in gas not a huge issue

- John Riley, 2016 Lincoln MKX

This is by far the nicest car I have ever owned. It is so smooth and quiet. I love the extra features it has like the massage and heated seats and brake assist.


  • Cabin Noise: It is so quiet even when driving through construction zones
  • Technology and Entertainment: It has all the best features that make for a very fun car ride
  • Ride and Handling: It is such a smooth ride and the car died it's part to prevent accidents as well


  • Cost to Maintain: It is expensive to own but worth it
  • Braking: I am still getting used to the sensitive brake systems
  • Seat Comfort:
