2016 Lincoln MKC

Serving Gainesville, Ocala, Lake City, Alachua, and Williston

One of the younger crossovers on the market, the Lincoln MKC has nonetheless made an impact since its 2014 introduction. Built on the same platform as the popular Ford Escape, the MKC adds luxury on to this reliable chassis. With a refined ride, plenty of features, and high quality fit and finish throughout, the MKC challenges the stalwarts of the luxury crossover class.

The unique Lincoln winged grille is the centerpiece of the front end, hard to miss, and bordered by HID headlamps and LED accent lights. The grille is a common theme across many of the newer Lincoln models. To the rear, the unique tailgate provides a clean appearance. The overall stance of the MKC is graceful without being overly aggressive.

The standard four-cylinder engine is the same that is common across much of the Ford and Lincoln line-up, and provides the MKC with power on demand for strong urban or highway performance. It's nearly as quick as the available 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which produces 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. The MKC is more than just power, with tight steering and a level of handling that is close to what you've come to expect from the European performance luxury brands. The Lincoln Drive Control system lets the driver choose from different steering and suspension modes. Both front- and all-wheel drive models are available.

A compact crossover, the 2016 Lincoln MKC has seating for five, with three trim levels - the Premiere, Select, and Reserve trims. Premiere trim is the base trim, featuring leatherette upholstery with wood and metal trim for an organic feel. Keyless ignition and entry, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats are standard. Both front seats are power-adjustable, with the driver seat adjusting eight ways and the passenger seat moving four ways. All trims also have driver memory settings that will reset the pedals, seats, and audio to the last settings paired with the keyfob.

The Select level upgrades to full basic leather upholstery, while the passenger seat gets eight-way adjustability. It also adds atmospheric ambient interior lighting, and a cargo cover. The top-of-the-line Reserve trim features special Bridge of Weir leather and adds ventilation to the front seats, a massive benefit for the warm and humid Jacksonville summers. This trim also adds a power-adjustable steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof, and a hands-free power liftgate with a foot sensor. Stand-alone interior features include heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel.


The MKC starts off with a powerful entertainment system, centered around an 8-inch touchscreen that uses the MyLincoln Touch interface. This screen is the brains and display for the rearview camera, as well as a nine-speaker audio system with two USB ports and an SD card reader. It also has satellite radio capabilities. The Sync voice control system can be used to control the touchscreen, and is fairly simple to learn and master. The Select package has the same technology features as the Reserve.

The Reserve trim adds a navigation system to the 8-inch screen, along with an embedded modem. This modem is used for communication with the vehicle via the MyLincoln Mobile smartphone app. This app allows the owner to interact with the MKC and check statuses such as fuel and tire pressure from outside the vehicle. More importantly, it allows the user to track GPS location, in case they've let their teenager use it - they won't be able to say they're in Ocala when they're actually in Alachua. A 14-speaker surround-sound audio system is a stand-alone option.


The roads around Chiefland and Lake City are generally safe places, but it's always good to know you have plenty of  features backing you up. Aside from the standard active and passive features, the Lincoln comes with a rearview camera as standard equipment. A blind-spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert is standard on the Reserve trim. The Technology package adds in tech-based safety systems, including adaptive cruise control, a lane-departure warning system and a forward collision warning system.
