Someone at Lincoln Canada isn't having the best of days. The site revealed the 2016 Lincoln MKX before its official debut at the Detroit Auto Show on Tuesday. We're assuming this is an accidental leak judging by how the link to the MKX now leads to an error page. But nevertheless, we have pictures and some information about Lincoln's newest model.
The exterior very much mimics the smaller MKC crossover and that isn't a bad thing, since it doesn't look like a rebadged Ford Edge. Such details as HID lights with LED accents, a camera that pops up from the front emblem, and a panoramic sunroof are apparent in the pictures. Inside, the interior layout is similar to newer Lincoln models. The difference is that you'll find buttons and knobs to control the climate and radio, not the awful touch controls that have been a part of Lincoln models for the past few years.
We don't know much on what engines or transmissions the MKX will come with. The only engine we know of is a 2.7L EcoBoost that will be optional.
We'll have more information and pictures live from Detroit when Lincoln introduces the 2016 MKX on Tuesday, January 13th at 10:25 AM
