'Lincoln Lawyer' Star McConaughey Tabbed for Lincoln Ads

MatthewMcConaughey

Don't drive a Lincoln? Matthew McConaughey thinks it'd be a lot cooler if you did.

Earlier this year, the Hollywood A-lister's so-called McConaissance was fully realized when he won the Oscar for his "Dallas Buyers Club" performance. Now, Ford is hoping the born-again serious actor — who'd become a bit of a punchline in recent years, starring in poorly received romantic comedies and, like, "Surfer, Dude" before a string of prestige pieces and box-office hits rescued his rep — can bring some of that same McConaughey mojo to the flagging luxury brand.

According to The Detroit News, Lincoln announced today that it is partnering with the star on a two-year deal that will bring McConaughey's famous face and Texas drawl to a series of TV and online ads. The spots are slated to begin next month and focus on the 2015 MKC compact crossover.

"The 2015 Lincoln MKC approaches a German-luxury-like balance of driving dynamism and comfort, and enters the segment as a truly competitive player," said Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek. Check out Bruzek's review for more.

2015 Lincoln MKC First Drive

LincolnMKCLead

Cars.com's team of editors at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show were convinced Lincoln's compact luxury SUV, the MKC, had the right attitude to jump into the extremely competitive segment with a full head of steam; we unanimously named it a "Winner" in our auto show postmortem.

2013 L.A. Auto Show: Luxury Car Winners and Losers

Fast-forward a few months and I'm driving preproduction versions of the MKC in the Santa Barbara, Calif., area. Lincoln chose a peculiar selection of pavement for the introductory drive, consisting of high-speed canyon roads with countless tight turns, dips and elevation changes. It's the kind of road motorcycles and sports cars call home, but not small SUVs. Did I mention this is a Lincoln? A brand that doesn't have the most sporting reputation.

My chariot for most of the test was a loaded MKC with the optional and more-powerful turbocharged 285-horsepower, 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, which comes standard with all-wheel drive. Perhaps the biggest surprise from this first romp in the MKC is that it's not at all out of place being ferociously driven through winding California roads.

2015 Lincoln MKC Starts at $33,995

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.
