Coming straight from a leaked URL on Lincoln’s Canadian website is the 2016 MKX.

Autoblog reports the “airplane design”-inspired premium crossover shares some of its looks with the 2015 MKC. Power comes from a 2.7-liter EcoBoost. Horsepower should be somewhere north of 300. No transmission was mentioned as of this writing, but speculation points to the same six-speed unit found in the Ford Edge.

Other features include: HID lamps with LED accenting; glass roof; hands-free power liftgate; 360-degree front-mounted camera; leather seating with optional heating/cooling and 22-way adjustment; 13- or 19-speaker Revel audio system; and (as pictured) MyLincoln Touch.

The new MKX is set to arrive in showrooms this summer.

    Not that anyone outside of this website will care, but I *think* they eliminated the front door DLO fail from the Edge on this one.

    I like the overall design, but that interior is a mess of too many panel gaps and bad fitment. Not acceptable.

      @Corey Lewis That's the only one I can see that looks uneven, and this is undoubtedly a preproduction sample. Are you saying that e.g., the ES350 is significantly better?

  • TheEndlessEnigma GM, Ford and Stellantis have significant oversupply of product sitting on dealer lots and banked up in holding yards across the country. Big 3 management is taking advantage of UAW's action to bring their inventories inline to what they deem reasonable. When you have models pushing 6 months of supply having your productions lines shut down by a strike is not something that's going to worry you. UAW does not have any advantages here, but they are directly impacting the financial well being of their membership. Who will be the first to blink? Those UAW members waving the signs around and receiving "strike pay" that is, what, 20% of their wages? UAW is screwing up this time around.
  • CEastwood Seven mil nitrile gloves from Harbor Freight for oil changes and such and the thicker heavy duty gripper gloves from Wally World for most everything else . Hell we used to use no gloves for any of that and when we did it was usually the white cloth gloves bought by the dozen or the gray striped cuff ones for heavy duty use . Old man rant over , but I laugh when I see these types of gloves in a bargain bin at Home Cheapo for 15 bucks a pair !
  • Not Previous Used Car of the Day entries that spent decades in the weeds would still be a better purchase than this car. The sucker who takes on this depreciated machine will learn the hard way that a cheap German car is actually a very expensive way to drive around.
  • Bullnuke Well, production cuts may be due to transport-to-market issues. The MV Fremantle Highway is in a Rotterdam shipyard undergoing repairs from the last shipment of VW products (along with BMW and others) and to adequately fireproof it. The word in the shipping community is that insurance necessary for ships moving EVs is under serious review.
  • Frank Wait until the gov't subsidies end, you aint seen nothing yet. Ive been "on the floor" when they pulled them for fuel efficient vehicles back during/after the recession and the sales of those cars stopped dead in their tracks
