2019 Lincoln MKC to be unveiled at the L.A. Auto Show

We are less than a week away from the 2017 edition of the Los Angeles Auto Show and we’ve got many stories coming your way.

This one pertains to Lincoln’s compact luxury crossover, the MKC. Introduced in 2014 to much praise, the MKC quickly turned into a huge winner for Ford’s luxury brand. In fact, one out of three buyers of the CUV comes from another luxury brand.

That, in itself, is quite a feat. Any and all carmaker desiring to stay in business and make money needs a compact CUV, and they essentially all do. The MKC shines by its design, both exterior and interior, its content and performance. The latter will be unchanged for 2019 as the standard 245 horsepower turbocharged 2.0-litre and 285 horsepower turbocharged 2.3-litre 4-cylinder engines are returning.

It will be up to new technologies, increased connectivity and revised styling to keep the momentum going. The 2019 Lincoln MKC will sport the new face of Lincoln as seen on the Continental uber luxury saloon and the latest midsize MKZ. Extra chrome, LED lighting and a rear design complete the exterior aesthetic overhaul. Inside, some updates will be made including the addition of a Rialto Green interior hue with black ash wood accents reserved for the Reserve models.

On the technology front, the new 2019 MKC will don SYNC 3 as a standard feature with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. A complete barrage of driver-assist technologies will be added and include radar and camera sensors for collision warning and intervention. Newly available features will contain active park assist, lane-keeping alert and Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert.

Press day for the 2017 L.A. Auto Show is next Wednesday, November 29th.
