2015-lincoln-mkc

Most people who see Lincoln's new compact crossover think that it could be a hit for the ailing luxury brand, but many also agree that it all depends on the MKC's price. Well that piece of the puzzle just fell into place. When the 2015 MKC goes on sale in the summer, it'll start at $33,995, including destination.

The brand's first premium compact crossover will be available in three trim levels: Premiere, Select and Reserve. The base price applies to the Premiere version, and its turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost powertrain. The 240-horsepower 2.0-liter is also standard on the Select ($37,225) and Reserve ($40,930) versions, but the 275-hp 2.3-liter EcoBoost is available on both as a $1,140 option. A six-speed automatic is the sole transmission; front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available across the model lineup for $2,495.

Standards throughout the trim levels include remote start, a reverse sensing system with rearview camera, Sync with MyFord Touch and an 8-inch touch-screen. A new standard feature to the brand is the Approach Detection system. It senses when the driver is approaching the car and illuminates welcome mats on the ground in front of the door. It also activates the headlamps, taillamps and door handles so they glow. 

Navigation and a blind spot monitoring system are available as a $1,100 option on Select models; navigation is standard on Reserve trims. Premium features like a hands-free tailgate, cooled front seats and a panoramic sunroof are also standard on the Reserve version. Safety features like adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support, active park assist, a lane-keeping system and front sensing system are available on Reserve models in the $2,235 Technology Package.

The MKC's base price stacks up favorably against its rivals. The 2014 Audi Q5 starts at $38,195 and the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque at $41,995. All prices include destination.

The bigger question is: Does is drive and handle better than the Ford Escape its LOOSELY based off of? If not, another tough sell for Lincoln.

At least they came up with really terrible names for the trim packages.

Thank you Bowrider for making my day.

dont like big brother

this is why lincoln is having a hard time instead of making the optional engine the eco boost that an option in the mustang lincoln make it 273 horsepower why not the 330 and 300 torque thats in the mustang lineup dont lincoln think that the young and old like me would flock to the dealerships for the hot mkc with 330 and 300 and kick some sand in the face of bmw x1 and mercedes glk and others come on ford motor co get some balls lincoln has nothing now this would really give lincoln a spurt i saw a lot of good car brands go by the wayside in my old years i have always liked lincoln could not afford one 5 kids 4 college grads but maybe this old car guy could possibly afford this hot number with style
