2018 Lincoln MKX Review

The 2018 Lincoln MKX


The Lincoln MKX has been exploding into the mid-size SUV market over the last few years, redefining the levels of luxury that can be achieved not only in class, but also at what price point. Re-imagined for 2018, the newest iteration of the Lincoln MKX does not disappoint. At Hooks Lincoln, we decided to do a deep dive on what is changing on the 2018 Lincoln MKX.

2018 Lincoln MKX Beautiful Design:

For 2018, Lincoln has added four new Colors: Blue Diamond Metallic, Iced Mocha Metallic, Ivory Pearl Metallic Tri-coat, Rhapsody Blue to offer more choices to their customers and to make sure that the 2018 Lincoln MKX stands out from its predecessors. The Lincoln split-wing grille and bold, full width tail lamps continue the sporty, aggressive styling so that your Lincoln MKX stands out from the rest of the pack.

2018 Lincoln MKX Convenience:

The Lincoln MKX has been known for providing an unparalleled range of convenience features, but not as upgrades. While many competitors veil the true price of luxuries by selling them as add-ons or as higher trim levels, Lincoln has made yet another push to make their ultimate luxury equipment accessible by making the climate package standard for Lincoln Black Label. The Lincoln Climate Package includes:

  • Heated outboard rear seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Auto high-beams
  • Windshield wiper deicer

Visibility and Safety:

The ultimate priority for Lincoln engineers is, of course, safety. Lincoln has added increased visibility and sensor automation in 2018 to make sure that you see what's coming.

  • 360-degree camera to see objects around the Lincoln MKX, not just behind it.
  • A zoom camera feature for trailer hitching (with the twin turbocharged 2.7L V6 engine or 3.7L Ti-VCT engines, offering 303 to 335 hp, 278 to 280lb-ft torque you are sure to do some towing with the Lincoln MKX)
  • Park Assist intelligently steers the vehicle for parallel parking while the driver simply accelerates and brakes.


We'd be remiss if we didn't mention how great the experience is of just getting into your Lincoln

  • Keyless entry offers a 9-foot approach detection range as compared to 4 feet by most competitors
  • Exterior lighting projects the Lincoln logo brightly beneath the mirrors, and illuminated door handles make entering the vehicle at night a breeze.
  • Interior ambient lighting activates as soon as the drivers key is present, and the engine start/stop button begins to glow upon entry.

Ultimately, there is no doubt that the 2018 Lincoln MKX has gone above and beyond to provide an amazing, luxury experience for an incredible price point. The 2018 Lincoln MKX MSRP of $40,000.00 makes it very accessible.
