Choosing Your Lincoln MKC
Designed to seat five, but most comfortable for four, the 2018 Lincoln MKC tackles the small crossover SUV segment with gusto, delivering four grades: Premiere, Select, Reserve, and Black Label. Standard equipment includes automatic Xenon headlights, 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, a power liftgate, push-button start, a rearview camera, a nine-speaker audio system, and heated front seats.
The MKC provides standard front-wheel and available all-wheel drive ($2,410 extra) with two engine choices. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder generates 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. This model earns an EPA-estimated 21 miles per gallon in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, or 19/25 mpg city/highway with all-wheel drive.
Also available is a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 285 hp and 305 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with all-wheel drive only. Models equipped with this engine earn an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
A six-speed automatic transmission works alongside both engines. This model has a maximum available tow rating of 3,000 pounds regardless of engine choice.
Nine or 10 exterior color choices are available on most models, including five special choices costing $695 each.
If you’re looking for options, start your search at the MKC Select trim. We recommend adding navigation through the Select Plus Package and all-wheel drive for customers who regularly encounter winter driving conditions.
