The modification brings Lincoln one action even more in its quest to get rid of the old two-piece waterfall grille from its cars– just the MKX and MKT crossovers will still use that outdated style.

On the within, the only significant change is the addition of a brand-new Rialto Green color alternative, readily available on the MKC’s Reserve trim level.

We presume that this function will continue to be used in an alternative package together with adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping help, and park help; they’re presently part of the $2295 Technology bundle that is readily available on 2018 Reserve and Black Label trims.
There aren’t any mechanical modifications to the MKC, which utilizes a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 245 horse power as its base engine and a 285-hp turbo 2.3-liter 4 as an upgrade. Both couple with a six-speed automated transmission and either front- or four-wheel drive.
