2014 Lincoln MKX Summary

Changes for the 2014 Lincoln MKX:

This year, Lincoln offers the 2014 MKX with a new Limited Edition Package, adds the latest version of the MyLincoln Touch infotainment system to the crossover SUV, and dips it in new Platinum Dune and Sunset Metallic paint colors.

Model Lineup:

The 2014 Lincoln MKX is sold in a single level of specification that can be upgraded with Premium, Elite, and Limited Edition option packages.

Choosing the MKX Premium means the luxury crossover is equipped with premium perforated leather seats with contrast color piping, a power tilt/telescopic and heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, ambient cabin lighting, and illuminated door sill scuff plates. The MKX Premium rides on polished 18-inch aluminum wheels, and it features adaptive HID headlights, LED turn signal indicators in the side mirror housings, rain-sensing wipers, and a reversing camera. This model also includes a Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert.

Upgrade to the MKX Elite for a voice-activated navigation system with real-time traffic, a THX II Certified premium audio system with HD Radio, and a panoramic sunroof. Either version of the MKX can be optioned with a new Limited Edition Package that installs Ceramic-color leather seats, an extended leather treatment in the same color, red contrast stitching, and Dark Tuxedo piping and stripes.

Additional options available for the MKX include upgraded paint, wood interior trim, ventilated front seats, Adaptive Cruise Control with a Collision Warning system, and a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system. Trailer towing equipment is also optional, along with roof rails and a choice between 20-inch or 22-inch aluminum wheels.

Engines and Transmissions:

Every 2014 Lincoln MKX is equipped with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine generating 305 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is standard, driving the SUV’s front wheels. All-wheel-drive is optional.

Fuel Economy Ratings:

If you don’t require AWD, you’ll get better fuel economy. With AWD, the MKX is expected to get 19 mpg in combined driving. Stick with the front-drive model, and the SUV returns 21 mpg in combined driving.

Safety Ratings:

Glance at the Lincoln MKX’s crash-test ratings, and you might not notice that in the frontal-impact assessment conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) this luxury crossover earns no better than a 3-star rating for the driver and front passenger. In all other NHTSA tests, as well as those performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the MKX performs well. The IIHS has not, however, tested this Lincoln for small overlap frontal-impact protection.

Technology Highlights:

Lincoln includes the latest version of its MyLincoln Touch technology in the 2014 MKX, and it can be upgraded to a navigation system and a premium audio system by choosing the Elite Package. A Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert, a reversing camera, and adaptive headlights are included with the Premium and Elite Packages, and the MKX can also be optioned with Adaptive Cruise Control with a Collision Warning system.
