at 2010 Detroit Autoshow Lincoln revealed a new version of their MKX midsize luxury crossover which has been facelifted in order to look a bit less awkward! You see the previous model was a truly hideous car with the biggest mouth ever fitted to any car!
But the 2011 MKX is refreshed inside and out and it also comes with a new engine as well as the new and amazing MyLincoln multimedia system.
The new car gets a new 3.7-liter Duratec V6 engine featuring Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) technology. Mated to a six-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission it has 305 hp and 280 ft.-lb. of torque, and is said to do 25 mpg, thanks to new systems like the Aggressive Deceleration Fuel Shut-Off and smrt battery charging.
Inside you are well treated with the usual blend of leather and wood trims and you also get a whole lot of high-tech toys and safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross Traffic Alert.
But the best new feature with this car is indeed the multimedia system which is developed by Ford and contains LCD touch-screen monitors in the console and instrument panel. This system turns the car into a big 3.7 liter laptop! It really has great capabilities.
