The transformation’s most apparent effect of 2015 Lincoln MKC was on the exterior, which is almost identical to the Detroit concept. The MKC features many styling cues from the MKZ sedan, including the brand-signature “split-wing grille” and an (optional) panoramic glass roof. There’s also a wraparound liftgate and taillights, which help distract from the crossover’s tallness. The MKC will come standard with Ford’s familiar 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged and direct-injected four-cylinder engine, which produces 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Buyers can upgrade to a new 2.3-liter EcoBoost with 275 hp and 300 lb-ft. Front-wheel drive will be standard; all-wheel drive will be optional. The latter includes Continuously Controlled Damping, which allows drivers to select from three suspension settings (comfort, normal, sport) to suit their moods. On the inside, Lincoln made sure not to skimp on the leather, wood, and technology. Like the exterior, the interior appears substantially different from the Escape’s, right down to the new steering wheel Lincoln says will become a fixture on future models.
