American automobile manufacturers Lincoln will come up with a lot of modifications in the upcoming 2016 version of MKX. Lincoln MKX is a luxury crossover vehicle which has been in market since 2007. Production, which takes place in Oakville, Ontario, Canada started from 2006. It was introduced in December of 2006 as a 2007 model. It is currently under its first generation of production. 2016 edition will mark beginning of the second generation. It will have significant difference in styling as well as the engineering department. A concept of the second generation was displayed in North American International Auto Show which is held in Detroit, Michigan. For past two years sales have been a bit stagnant, therefore the company would be looking to increase their consumer base by making it acceptable to a larger section of people.
2016 Lincoln MKX: Redesign Exterior and Interior
2016 Lincoln MKX has a simpler yet sophisticated look. It would most probably be built on a new platform and would be a little more bulky with a muscular structure. For this reason a lot of light weight alloys and aluminium would be used in the body to reduce net weight and improve on-road performance. According to Lincoln, MKX would have a corporate look which would include a split wing grille and newly designed LED headlamp which would be rectangular with a pointed blade like corner. The roof this time around would be a little sloping. On closer look one may observe other minor yet visible changes such as a more muscular fender, wraparound taillights and larger exhaust channels.
Interior of 2016 Lincoln MKX also has a corporate feel to it. Luxurious leather with top class upholstery would make even long distance journeys quite smooth and comfortable. Front seats would come with internal heating and would be power adjustable. Interior design would be sophisticated with use of very less vibrant colours. Multi zone climate control is also a valuable addition to this vehicle. Other features include 360 camera, parallel and perpendicular parking assistance, cross traffic alert, etc. More details regarding interior and exterior details of the vehicle would be released soon by the company.
Well even though 2016 Lincoln MKX is an absolutely glorious vehicle, still there would be some other cars in the market which would be able to give it a run for its money. Its closest rivals would be the Cadillac SRX series and Lexus RX series. Both would be able to compete with MKX in terms of performance.
