2018 Lincoln MKX Engine & Performance Features - Luxury Crossovers - Lincoln.com

A Lincoln MKX, shown in the Ingot Silver exterior color, is being driven along a rural road.

ADAPTIVE STEERING

Simply stated, available adaptive steering adjusts how much the vehicle responds to the driver’s steering wheel input in order to turn the front wheels. It works by analyzing vehicle speed and driver steering information. That information is used to automatically adjust the firmness of the steering wheel to produce smooth and precise steering. This system delivers an agile connected feel at high speeds and reduces driver effort at low speeds. To create an even more tailored driving experience, drivers can choose to set their preferred steering setting between Normal, Comfort and Sport modes.

ADAPTIVE HEADLAMPS

HID headlamps with LED accent light bars come standard on the Lincoln MKX. These bulbs last longer and use less energy than conventional halogen bulbs. The available adaptive full LED headlamps, shown here, help give the driver a broad field of light. Featuring LED technology with adaptive forward lighting, they illuminate in sync with the vehicle’s steering to cast light across a wide stretch of road.

INTELLIGENT AWD

Available Intelligent AWD uses sensors to constantly monitor traction. It delivers torque to the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction, typically before wheelslip can even occur.

AUTO HOLD

Auto Hold offers relief when you come to stop signs, long traffic signals and other braking situations. When the driver stops the vehicle using the brake pedal, the system will hold and then release the brakes when the accelerator is pushed.

FUEL ECONOMY

Shortcuts don’t apply. An impressively energetic driving performance is matched by impressive fuel economy. The 2018 Lincoln MKX with the 3.7L Ti-VCT engine boasts an EPA-estimated rating of 17 city mpg and 25 highway mpg.* And unlike some crossovers, premium fuel is not required, which could help you save at the gas pump.
*FWD model. EPA-estimated rating of 17 city/25 hwy/20 combined mpg. Actual mileage will vary.
