2018 Lincoln MKC



Get the kind of performance you might expect from a V6 in a 4-cylinder engine. With 240 horsepower1 and 270 lb.-ft. of torque,1 MKC delivers on command thanks to the boost of turbocharging, the precision of direct fuel injection, and the sophistication of twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT). During stop-and-go city driving, Auto Start-Stop Technology2 can help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. The system will shut off the engine when you come to a complete stop, and seamlessly restart it when you release the brake pedal or press the accelerator pedal. The result is a strong performer with an EPA-estimated rating of 28 hwy mpg.3 The standard 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission puts the control of a manual shift at your fingertips. Just tap the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and you can change gears if you choose.

Offering 285 horsepower1 and 305 lb.-ft. of torque,1 the 2.3-liter GTDI I-4 engine2 uses the turbocharging, direct fuel injection, and Ti-VCT technologies featured in the 2.0-liter engine to take performance to the next level. As Motor Trend said, "The power is quickly accessible and the MKC shoots off the line and does just as well passing on the freeway."4 The 2.3-liter is paired with Intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD)2 and Lincoln Drive Control2 featuring Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) for inspiring performance all around. Use the Sport setting to tighten suspension tuning, firm up steering calibration, and enjoy a more powerful engine sound inside the cabin - all while feeling connected to the road. 

Now there's no need to hold down the brake pedal for a long stoplight or extended wait. Just activate the new Auto Hold feature,5 then come to a complete stop. Even on a hill, the system will hold your MKC in place until you press the accelerator.


Look around. The world is filled with alluring destinations and fascinating sights just waiting to be discovered. When bringing MKC to life, the artisans of Lincoln took notice of this, finding their inspiration in the clean aesthetic of modern architecture and the graceful forms of nature. Innovative technologies harmonize with the beautifully sculpted exterior and exquisitely trimmed interior of MKC in a uniquely elegant way. Empowering you to live in your moment - and travel in style. To ease your day, the engaging design is thoughtfully enhanced by features like the Hands-Free Liftgate.1 Simply kick your foot beneath the rear bumper to open or close it. Inside, MKC offers you a flat load floor, abundant space, and the flexibility of a 60/40 split-folding rear seat.

PRESENTATION MATTERS. Which is why MKC presents its controls to you in such a beautifully simple way - one that feels effortless every time you slide behind your hand-stitched Wollsdorf 1 leather-wrapped steering wheel. With its convenient memory1 feature, MKC recalls your personalized settings for the driver's seat, heated sideview mirrors and more, each time you return. Choose from 7 hues of ambient lighting1 for the doors, cupholders and footwells to match your personal style. A press of the push-button start brings the engine to life. And the class-exclusive2 Push-Button Shift Transmission displays each gear as a button of its own - making it easy for you to select Drive and be on your way.

Acura claims that the RDX changes for 2016 resulted in amore powerful and fuel-effi cient 3.5L i-VTEC® V6 engine.

  • 279 horsepower
  • 252 lb.-ft. of torque

This is really the same engine with very minorenhancements (+6 horsepower and +1 lb.-ft. of torque). Both Lincoln MKC engines deliver more torque and the 2.3L GTDI delivers more horsepower.

RDX delivers slightly better fuel economy, which isoff set by the cost of the more expensive premium fuelthis engine requires. Both Lincoln MKC powertrains canoperate with 87-octane fuel.

"The Lincoln 2.3L GTDI engine delivers slightly more horsepower and both the 2.3L and the 2.0L GTDI engines deliver more torque than Acura's 3.5L. They also have lower operating costs since they don't require the more expensive premium fuel like the RDX's engine. Additionally, Lincoln MKC equipped with the 2.0L GTDI or 2.3L GTDI engine and the Trailer Tow Package can tow up to 3,000 lbs.(1) - double the estimated towing capacity of RDX."

Audi's quattro All-Wheel-Drive System is legendary andunsurpassed in the industry.

    - 285 horsepower
    - 305 lb.-ft. of torque

"The Lincoln MKC GTDI engines outperform Q5's2.0L and 3.0L TFSI engines and do so using regularunleaded gasoline. Q5's engines require the moreexpensive premium fuel, making the Lincoln MKCengines powerful, effi cient and economical.

"Further, Lincoln MKC owners can benefi t from evengreater engine power (245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft.of torque(2)) when they use premium fuel."

All Audi models, including Q5, are known for their expertly crafted interiors and upscale materials.

COMPARISON: 2017 Lincoln MKC to 2016 BMW X3

The BMW X3 is off ered in a choice of two gasoline engines and one diesel. The X3 ispositioned as delivering "versatility without limits" and, like all BMW models, the X3 placesa premium on performance, frequently at the expense of interior room and overall value.Changes for the 2016 model year are limited to expanded Bluetooth® capability. See howLincoln MKC compares.

BMW X3 emphasizes the "sport" aspect of the SportUtility segment, thanks to two turbocharged engines:

  • 2.0L turbo I-4:
    - 240 horsepower
    - 260 lb.-ft. of torque
  • 3.0L turbo V6:
    - 300 horsepower
    - 300 lb.-ft. of torque

Lincoln MKC also delivers exceptional performance fromits two turbocharged engines:

  • 2.0L GTDI I-4:
    - 240 horsepower
    - 270 lb.-ft. of torque
  • 2.3L GTDI I-4:(1)
    - 285 horsepower
    - 305 lb.-ft. of torque
Fuel economy for the X3 and MKC are similar. However,since the 2.0L GTDI engine off ered for Lincoln MKC canoperate on 87-octane gasoline, it delivers signifi cantlybetter value than the X3's 2.0L turbo engine, whichrequires higher priced premium fuel.

"The technological innovation of the Lincoln 2.3L turboengine is evidenced by the fact that it delivers nearlythe same horsepower and slightly more torque thanthe much larger 3.0L turbo in X3. The 2.0L engine inLincoln MKC can operate using regular unleadedgasoline, making it a much better value than theX3 2.0L turbo engine, which requires premium fuel.

"For Lincoln MKC owners who want greater power, the2.0L GTDI I-4 engine achieves 245 horsepower and275 lb.-ft. of torque(1) with premium fuel."

The BMW X3 boasts driving technologies that ensuresafety without sacrifi cing performance. Availablefeatures include Dynamic Damping Control andVariable Sport Steering.

Driving technologies that ensure both driving pleasureand enhanced control are also found on Lincoln MKCvia Lincoln Drive Control with driver-selectable modes:Comfort, Normal or Sport. Standard on AWD models andavailable on FWD models, Lincoln Drive Control includes:

  • Continuously controlled damping (CCD)
  • Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS)
  • Active noise control
Standard on Lincoln MKC is Torque Vectoring Control,which helps improve driving performance, especiallyin curves.(2)

"Lincoln MKC off ers all of the driving technologiesfound in the BMW X3, yet it costs thousands less.Lincoln MKC also off ers features unavailable on theX3, including a hands-free power liftgate, heated andcooled front seats, programmable remote start (onReserve) and the Lincoln Roadside Assistance Program,which is valid for the life of the vehicle. Lincoln is also theonly luxury automotive manufacturer to nationally off erowners a standard vehicle Pickup & Delivery Service.(3)"

The X3, like all BMW models, is targeted to those who want to combine performance with luxury.

BMW has been roundly criticized for its pricing. Vehiclesstart above their competitors and the prices increasewith options. Prices climb by adding heated front andrear seats, a heated steering wheel, front and rear parkcontrol and a rear view camera. A fully equipped xDrive35i tops $60,000.(4)

"Lincoln believes value and luxury can go hand inhand. Heated front seats are standard on Lincoln MKCPremiere, as is a Reverse Sensing System andpush-button start. Comparably equip both vehiclesand you will discover that Lincoln MKC delivers avalue advantage in the thousands of dollars."
