The MKC can be equipped with the available 285-horsepower* Twin-Scrolled Turbocharged 2.3L engine that also delivers 305 lb.-ft. of torque.* Power is delivered by three brilliant technologies—turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT). The 2.3L engine empowers MKC to offer a towing capacity of 3,000 lbs. when properly equipped.
*Horsepower and torque ratings achieved with 93-octane fuel.
TURBOCHARGED I-4 2.0L ENGINE
At the heart of the MKC lies a responsive 245-horsepower* Turbocharged I-4 2.0L engine, which uses three technologies—the boost of turbocharging, the precision of direct injection and the sophistication of twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT). This engine, available in both FWD and AWD, helps MKC achieve a towing capacity of 3,000 lbs. when properly equipped. The result is an MKC powertrain that’s highly intelligent and powerful.*Horsepower rating achieved with 93-octane fuel.
The six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission offers the control of a stick shift with the convenience of an automatic. The wheel-mounted paddle shifters on the 2018 Lincoln MKC let you shift gears quickly without taking your hands off the steering wheel. Or, simply relax and let the automatic mode glide efficiently through all six speeds.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
Available driver-activated adaptive cruise control (ACC)61
operates just like normal cruise control, with one exception—Its sensors can detect traffic slowing ahead and automatically slow your car to maintain the preset distance you’ve set. When traffic has cleared, your car resumes the set speed. Forward collision warning with brake support, included with ACC, can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield. If you don’t react immediately, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake. ...less
INTELLIGENT ALL-WHEEL DRIVE (AWD)*
Intelligent AWD uses sensors to constantly monitor traction. It balances torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction, typically before wheelslip can even occur. ...less
LINCOLN DRIVE CONTROL
ELECTRIC POWER-ASSISTED STEERING (EPAS)
EPAS provides an easy, fluid steering feel at low speeds and a firmer, more controlled feel at higher speeds. And that’s not all. It also constantly adapts to changing road conditions and compensates for surface irregularities.
A suite of sensors continuously monitors and adjusts the suspension. The sensors also detect body movement, along with steering and braking dynamics in milliseconds, faster than you can blink. Select the operating mode—Comfort, Normal or Sport—that suits the driving experience you prefer, from exceptional ride quality to a spirited, sporty feel.
ACTIVE NOISE CONTROL (ANC)
Active noise control heightens overall cabin sound quality by reducing unwanted noise while enhancing desired sound to help provide a pleasant driving experience. Microphones monitor the sound profile of the cabin, which is then replicated and inverted to create an opposing acoustic wave through the speakers. When the opposing wave meets the original sound wave, they cancel each other out.
ADVANCETRAC® WITH ROLL STABILITY CONTROL™
This electronic stability system provides enhanced control in slick conditions such as snow, rain or gravel. Roll Stability Control (RSC®)* provides enhanced side-slip control and delivers electronic vehicle rollover stability. RSC utilizes gyroscopic sensors to monitor roll rate and vehicle roll motion at least 100 times per second. This helps determine when and how it will apply the brakes to help keep all four wheels firmly planted. ...less
*Remember that even advanced technology cannot overcome the laws of physics. It’s always possible to lose control of a vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions.
