Lincoln is dropping the price on its new, second-generation MKX crossover.
The 2016 Lincoln MKX will be priced from $39,025, a slight drop from the $39,795 price tag of its predecessor. Redesigned for the 2016 model year, Lincoln is hoping to capture some of the lucrative luxury crossover market.
The MKX is based on the Ford Edge and will come standard with a 3.7-liter V6 engine that is carried over from the previous generation. Buyers can also opt for a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that provides more than 330 hp and 370 lb-ft of torque while mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Along with a number of chassis, suspension and steering upgrades, the 2016 Lincoln MKX also sees its interior revamped to be more luxurious as well as allowing for easier entry and exit.
The model will also be available in Select trim ($42,315), Reserve trim ($46,080) and Black Label trim ($52,240). All-wheel drive is available as an option on all models for an additional $2,495.
The 2016 Lincoln MKX will arrive at U.S. dealerships this fall, ahead of its global roll out to other markets including Canada, Mexico and China.
