2019 Lincoln MKC OVERVIEW

The littlest SUV in Lincoln’s lineup gets a major makeover inside and out for 2019, giving it the looks and lengthy list of luxury features traditional buyers expect from the brand. To bring new shoppers into showrooms, just as much effort has been expended to ensure the 2019 Lincoln MKC comes equipped with the latest safety technology and infotainment features.

What's New for 2019

The most noticeable change is the MKC inherits the family’s new nose treatment, including the Lincoln-symbol mesh rectangular grille and LED headlights, and a restyled rear end. Automatic emergency braking and pedestrian collision avoidance have been added to the MKC’s safety tech suite, and Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a WiFi hot spot have been added to its infotainment system.

Choosing Your Lincoln MKC

Beyond its $34,920 (all prices include the $925 destination charge) base model, Lincoln chose to pull the MKC’s trim level titles from the world of wine making, with – in ascending order – the Select, Reserve, and Black Label.

All trims get a twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine with 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque with automatic stop/start as standard. Reserve trim and above MKCs can be had with an optional 285-hp, 305-lb-ft of torque, 2.3-liter turbo inline-four for $1,140.

Front-wheel drive is the order of the day across the board for this five-seater, with all-wheel drive – and its accompanying three-mode adaptive suspension system – universally available for $2,410. Regardless of trim or configuration, the MKC puts its power down through a six-speed automatic transmission with center stack push button and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shift controls.

The MKC is available in four trims:


Lincoln lists nine available paint colors on the $34,920 base MKC, with five of them a $695 upcharge. Inside, you have your choice of black or tan “Lincoln Soft Touch” upholstery, both of which get aluminum trim on the doors and instrument panel. Speaking of, Lincoln’s premium sound system is standard, which incorporates a single CD player, nine speakers, a subwoofer, SiriusXM, two smart charging USB ports, and more. It's controlled by the standard SYNC 3 infotainment system via an eight-inch touchscreen, dash and steering wheel controls, or voice command.

Inside, you’ll find dual-zone automatic climate control, a 12-way power driver’s seat with four-way power lumbar and memory function, a six-way power passenger’s seat with power recline, and a multifunction steering wheel mounted on a manual tilt/telescope steering column. The base MKC is also equipped with 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, LED automatic headlights, accent lighting and taillights, a power liftgate, and proximity entry with push-button and remote start.

Other than the aforementioned options, Lincoln has limited its list of extra-cost items to locking lug nuts ($75), configurable daytime running lamps ($45), and a trio of rubber floor and cargo area mats.


The MKC Select starts at $37,675. Despite costing only $2,755 more, this trim gets leather-trimmed seats with perforated inserts, genuine wood trim on the doors and instrument panel, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with memory, Ambient Lighting, a HomeLink universal remote, a retractable cargo cover, different 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, and the configurable DRLs as standard.

It also makes additional extra-cost options available, including a panoramic sunroof with a power shade for $1,700. The Climate Package ($605) includes heated outboard rear seats, a heated steering wheel, auto high-beam headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and a windshield wiper de-icer. The Select Plus Package ($1,200) adds a voice-activated navigation system with six years of SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link and a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert.


Moving up to the $41,550 Reserve makes the Select Plus Package contents plus the panoramic roof standard, along with heated and cooled front seats, a green color option, 18-inch machined aluminum wheels with Premium Painted pockets, and a hands-free feature for the power liftgate.

Options-wise, the Reserve adds another $695 paint color, the Climate Package ($605) remains, and a Class II Trailer Tow Package ($555) with sway control and a 110V/150W AC power outlet is introduced. For $1,150, owners can bundle 19-inch wheels and a 14-speaker audio system with a subwoofer and HD radio. The Technology Package ($2,495) adds adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, park assist, and an electrochromic rearview mirror.

Black Label

As befits its hefty $48,125 starting price, the top-shelf MKC Black Label includes the best of everything previously mentioned as standard, with only the tow package, lug nuts, and floor and trunk liners remaining optional equipment. Color choice drops to seven, with three of those Black Label-only $1,750 "Chroma" paints. Before picking a paint, however, it’s important to choose from one of three interior themes: Center Stage, Indulgence, and Modern Heritage. Each offers a distinct combination of decor, including appliqués, leather touches, headliners, and carpet/floor mats.

Those choices, however, aren't all that sets Lincoln’s Black Label apart. Buyers are enrolled in a membership program honored by participating dealerships that includes a maintenance plan with free pickup and delivery, free car washes, an annual detailing, and concierge, travel, and culinary services.

CarsDirect Tip

Though the base 2019 Lincoln MKC boasts a decent set of standard equipment, the Select model is where to go if you want leather, navigation, and a panoramic roof for the lowest MSRP. If you find you can’t do without the full safety suite and the model’s finest infotainment system, be prepared for an MSRP north of $45,000.
