At the start of 2013, Lincoln revealed the concept version of the MKC at the Detroit Motor Show and they finally decided that it's time to bring out the official details for the 2015 model. The car should be reaching the showrooms in the summer of 2014.
It's pretty obvious that the design of the vehicle hasn't changed too much compared to its concept model, with the exception of the less aggressive exhaust system, ordinary door handles and a few graphic changes for the taillights.
For the exterior, it seems that Lincoln adopted a design language similar to the 2013 MKZ. Some of the features for this language include a special crafted, hands-free wraparound liftgate, a split-wing grille with the company signature on it.
In profile, the vehicle has a lot of sporty looks but at the same time it brings a luxury feeling. All in all, this is the best design that Lincoln could come up with.
The luxurious interior goes quite well with the sporty exterior. As a standard feature, the MKC will be coming with plush leather which has been French stitched, which should definitely be noticed by Mercedes and BMW. The MKC will be debuting the all-new steering wheel which should be reaching the other future models.
The MKC will also be equipped with the standard MyLincoln Touch which allows the driver to control the vehicle with the help of a touchscreen or by simply using the voice.
Even though the interior is nice, every vehicle has its downsides. The center stack is too big it will pretty much annoy anyone because of the number of buttons and that isn't too creative.
As for the drivetrain, the standard 2015 Lincoln MKC will be getting a 2.0-liter, EcoBoost engine which is able to produce 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The company is also offering a 2.3-liter, EcoBoost four-cylinder engine which will surely improve the car performance. The engine will be delivering 275 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, there are no details yet on the transmission, but we do know that it will be having a push-button interface.
