    2019 Lincoln MKC Clips Its Wings

    Sign in to follow this  

      Farewell Split Wing Grille


    The Lincoln MKC crossover has been around for a few years with no major changes. That changes next week as the company will be unveiling a refreshed version at the LA Auto Show next week.

    The biggest change for the 2019 MKC is the loss of the split-wing grille. In its place is a new grille that looks like it was lifted from the new Navigator. Other exterior changes include new LED headlights, a smoother hood shape, and extra chrome details for the rear.

    Lincoln has also added a number of active safety features for the 2019 MKC. Automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning come standard on all models. Optional safety equipment includes lane keep alert, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and active park assist.

    The interior doesn't see any changes with this refresh.

    Powertrains for the MKC are still a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder with 245 horsepower and a turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder with 285 horsepower. 

    The 2019 Lincoln MKC arrives at dealers next summer.

    New Lincoln MKC: Small SUV Amps Up Style, Connectivity To Stand Out From The Crowd

    • New 2019 Lincoln MKC debuts with increased connectivity and enhanced ownership services – updates that luxury travelers want and need
    • MKC is bringing new clients to Lincoln; one out of two Lincoln MKC sales come from other luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz and Lexus
    • Lincoln’s small SUV introduces a suite of driver-focused technologies with the addition of Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which can help drivers avoid potential front crashes, and can help reduce the severity of or even eliminate some front collisions involving other vehicles and pedestrians

    DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 21, 2017 – The new 2019 Lincoln MKC is poised to attract even more luxury SUV buyers, thanks to its commanding new design, driver-focused technologies like automatic emergency braking and pedestrian collision avoidance, and an effortless ownership experience that builds on Lincoln’s exclusive Pickup and Delivery service.

    Since its introduction in 2014, Lincoln MKC has introduced more people to the Lincoln brand than any other vehicle, with nearly half of all clients coming from other brands. Women account for more than half of MKC sales and, in turn, are driving growth in this luxury segment, which has increased 29 percent over the past decade. 

    “Our redesigned Lincoln MKC offers style, substance and technologies that create an effortless ownership experience,” said Kumar Galhotra, president, The Lincoln Motor Company. “We recognize it takes a lot to attract a buyer from other luxury competitors, but the Lincoln MKC has that kind of appeal. We believe the new MKC will capture even more luxury clients.”

    Eye-catching from any angle

    The 2019 Lincoln MKC exemplifies the refined new face of Lincoln. The signature grille evokes a sense of confidence, and beautifully detailed LED headlamps illuminate the road with crisp lighting designed to minimize eyestrain. A new rear design features attractive chrome highlights that enhance the appearance from all angles.   

    LED lighting in the lower front body and tail lamps subtly illuminates to greet clients upon approach, and a luminous Lincoln welcome mat appears beneath both front doors to light the way for driver and passenger. During the day, an available panoramic roof fills the cabin with natural light.

    Inside, the cabin is quiet, warm and inviting, replete with plush, soft-to-the-touch materials. Lincoln craftsmanship is apparent in every detail, from the available heated and cooled seats to standard WiFi and USB ports throughout, allowing everyone to stay connected.[WK1]

    For those seeking a more personalized experience, Lincoln Black Label is available for the new MKC. Lincoln Black Label not only provides the best level of materials in custom designer themes, but also offers a host of membership privileges. These include annual vehicle detailing, anytime carwashes, and access to a list of select restaurants where noted chefs will provide a curated dining experience.

    The three Lincoln Black Label themes for the new MKC have  drawn inspiration from the realms of the arts, travel, fine food and culture. The themes are:

    • Modern Heritage: A timeless ensemble of elegance without ostentation, Modern Heritage is perfect for those who appreciate a clean, modern aesthetic. This theme features seats in Vianca [RC2] White Venetian leather finished with the Lincoln Black Label star insignia, with Argento wood accents.
    • Indulgence: A rich, sumptuous interior, this theme is designed to match the most refined tastes. Visually enticing, Indulgence features surfaces trimmed in Venetian leather and Alcantara® cloth, in tempting hues like Truffle and Ganache, finished with accents from rich Ziricote wood – the same as you might find in the world of yachts or musical instruments.
    • Center Stage: Inspired by the fashion of the theater, Center Stage captures the excitement of a curtain skirting across the main stage on opening night. It features an exclusive diamond-L perforation pattern on the Alcantara cloth inserts, finished with meticulously stitched Foxfire Red piping. Exotic wood accents enhance the architectural design, while Jet Black Venetian leather accented by Firefox Red adds a dramatic flair.

    In line with Lincoln’s commitment to offering inspired interior environments, the new Lincoln MKC also will feature a rich Rialto Green cabin with black ash wood accents, available on Reserve models. This new deep green is inspired by the vibrant tones emanating from the world of high fashion.

    Technology that inspires confidence

    Because today’s luxury clients expect to be constantly connected, the new Lincoln MKC offers standard SYNC® 3 with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, enabling occupants to manage audio, phone, navigation and more from the vehicle touchscreen or steering wheel-mounted controls.

    A suite of driver-assist technologies designed to inspire confidence includes Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. This system is designed to reduce the severity of – and in some cases eliminate – frontal collisions, including those involving pedestrians. It uses advanced radar and camera sensors to provide a collision warning to the driver. If the driver does not respond in time, the system can automatically apply the brakes.

    Available active park assist can reduce parking anxiety by helping guide drivers in to and out of tight parallel-parking spaces. Other available technologies include lane-keeping alert and Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert.

    Luxury meets performance

    Three technologies – turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing – are responsible for a powerful engine offering for the new Lincoln MKC. This twin-scroll turbocharged 2.3-liter engine producing 285 horsepower and 305 lb.-ft. of torque allows Lincoln MKC to offer an available towing capacity of 3,000 pounds when properly equipped.

    Both the powerful turbocharged 2.3-liter and the standard turbocharged 2.0-liter engine delivering 245 horsepower are designed to be exhilarating and fuel efficient. Either option can be paired to Lincoln’s intelligent all-wheel-drive system, which delivers enhanced all-weather capabilities and sportier performance.

    Effortless ownership

    Effortless ownership with the new Lincoln MKC is offered through the Lincoln Way™ app. Lincoln Way enables clients to start, lock, unlock and locate their MKC, as well as schedule remote starts to allow the vehicle to heat or cool to comfortable levels. Lincoln Concierge, which allows owners to schedule Pickup and Delivery for vehicle service, as well as find and reserve parking, is also available through the app.

    The brand’s increased focus on offerings that provide an effortless ownership experience now includes standard Pickup and Delivery. The service can pick up a client’s vehicle at an agreed location, then take it to a dealership for service, providing a complimentary Lincoln loaner vehicle. Once service is complete, clients can arrange for their washed and serviced vehicle to be returned to them at a location of their choice.  

    Lincoln remains the only luxury automaker to provide Pickup and Delivery as a standard service for all vehicles to save its clients time and effort.

    Galhotra says Lincoln’s commitment to being a world-class brand goes well beyond its exceptional vehicles.

    “For Lincoln, every client is unique and and we want every element of the Lincoln shop, buy and own process to be a truly personalized and effortless experience,” he said.

    The new 2019 Lincoln MKC will be available at Lincoln dealers this summer.

    Ughhh....

    Actually I like how the Lincoln design language works on their SUV's. It's not a bad looking vehicle in some ways.

    Departing now to wash my mouth out with soap and stick pins and needles into a dolls that looks suspiciously like Mark Fields.

    About that active park assist I keep seeing on Fords and Lincolns:  why doesn't GM have that on any of its models?

    Also, why don't GM crossovers allow you to open the rear gate with your foot, just like a Ford Escape or this model?

    Best guess on the tailgate is some patent/copyright.

    Off the top of my head, the Suburban/Tahoe/Yukon/Escalade (Escalade since 2015) and XT5 and CT6 have kick to open as an option.  

    XT5, CT6, CTS, Envision, Malibu, and Volt each have optional active park assist.

    It's an option.  I'd want to see what the take rate is before I'd make any conclusions.

    Probably pretty high on Fords as I see Titaniums quite often. I'd only assume similarly for Chevy. 

    Then again the Titanium name has been watered down ever since 2013. That mean fully loaded at one point and now it means there are a bunch of options on it and a bunch more you can still add..  

    Okay, not as bad as I thought. I went to Ford's website and built an Escape titanium and it started at 32k and I added every option(that wasn't floormats and cargo nets) and it got up to 35k. I know at one point the 2.0T was an option for Titaniums.

    If it is only available on $32k Escapes, I'm guessing the overall take rate is fairly low. That's not where the bulk of Escape sales is going to be.

    Can't even lie, that is one mighty damn fine looking automobile. From the outside, it certainly looks 'expensive', which is a good thing.

    They are excellent products...if one was not averse to buying FOMOCO...they do have a lot of features for the price IMHO.

    I would rather have it as an option. I myself see no need for it. Proper planning makes these electronic options just that optional and for the most part lazy people features.

    Driving is a privilege you earn and you should be actively involved in all you do even when you use your auto to haul. Right now we have way to many nanny devices that has created a very lazy group of drivers.

    You're not forced to use active park assist if the vehicle is equipped with it. 

    Seems like it would be a nice to have when confronted with parallel parking.

    I've always been able to parallel park my vehicles but I could see it being very useful on larger CUVs with wicked blind spots.

    Parallel parking was one of those things I remember having to practice for the driving test, but that I never do...I think I've only parallel parked maybe a dozen times in 30 years of driving.    I can do it if I have to, but I don't believe in it.  I always either park in a lot, a garage, or valet.

    Same here. Always was able to parallel park anything that I was able to legally drive that I was licensed for.

    Parallel assist? For wicked blind spotted vehicles?

    Sure...not only useful...but helpful!

    I learned how to parallel park a similar ride.

    A4293F.JPG

    The only windows I had to go with when backing up were these at the back, and the side mirrors. Talk about blind spots...

    I feel that our society does not take enough time to teach and practice good, safe and necessary driving skills to avoid killing ourselves on our roads.

    We spend an enormous amounts of money trying to solve the riddles of how to make our cars safer, how to introduce all kinds of safety features and electronics and nannies and ultimately make our cars drive themselves...yet we have NEVER EVER TAUGHT OURSELVES PROPERLY HOW TO DRIVE PERIOD!

    In all the human intelligence thrown into our safety regarding cars, we have ignored the most basic one of them all...to teach ourselves how the phoque to drive! We are willing to throw all kinds of data to self driving cars, yet we never gave that much attention to ourselves...

    Ironic on so many levels...

    That is why you have higher ground clearance. My daughter used to be afraid of parallel parking her Durango.

    I taught her to just pull in, take the front wheel up onto the sidewalk / curb and then slowly drop it off back onto the street. Parallel parked in record time.

    She never has a problem and loves how easy it is to do.

    Yea, many are not able to P - Park, but I consider myself the exception rather than the norm.

    Just drive up, drop off and done being parked close.

    Part of that problem is a double edged sword..

    Be safer so they make wider, thicker pillars. But we want to learn how to drive better but we can't see out of these cabins anymore. My Escape had a wicked blind spot at the back because they had itty bitty rear windows but they sat up so high that a car could literally be below the window when I look back and miss it if I didn't use the mirrors as well. You used to just be able to turn your head and look with your own eyes now we almost have to use multiple things/systems to make sure we're clear. This would cover parallel parking and the curb as well.

    That works great with an SUV with some sidewalls on their tires but that can't be done in like any car. or one with lower profile wheels were there's less give in the tire and it might not be angled just right to go up on the curb.

    I've done that before..one of the things I love about the ground clearance of 4x4s.  I don't believe in parallel parking, but I can do it.   The worst time I had parallel parking was in Dec '04 in downtown Portland on Couch Street (which is inexplicably pronounced 'cooch') when I went to Powell's Bookstore...it was raining, and I was in an '04 Grand Prix rental..too low to go up on the curb, and hard to see out of..

    Some awesome places to visit on Couch Street. Named after John H. Couch the treasure and a sailor of Portland OR.

    Couch Beer is pretty good there too since there are a bunch of micro brews in that area.

    I agree with everyone that modern auto's are a pain in the ass to P - Park. Another reason I love my SUV's. :P

    Yeah, great city..I need to go back out there..haven't been out since 2010...have friends in Portland and Beaverton and been to a few conferences there.    Love the beer, been to a number of the McMinimins owned places...I remember especially liking the Blue Moon Tavern & Grill.

    When you do get back out, check out one of the Theater Breweries. Some great places to enjoy custom micro beer and a movie with food.

    Been to most of them, course as a fan of Terminator, I have a fondness for Mission Theater. Hollywood Theater is a blast also. Cool 70mm films are still shown there. :cheers:

      Porsche Reports April U.S. Retail Sales
       
      First four months up 2.7 percent ahead of new Macan, 911, electric TaycanAtlanta, Georgia. Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of the Porsche 911, 718 Boxster and Cayman, Panamera, Cayenne, and Macan model lines, today announced April retail sales of 5,018 vehicles. The total was an increase of 5.0 percent from March but down 9.9 percent from a record April 2018. The primary reason for the year-over-year decline was the transition to the new Macan, the best-selling Porsche model that is due in U.S. dealerships this month.

      U.S. retail sales in the first four months were 2.7 percent ahead of the same period in 2018, which itself was the seventh record retail year in a row for PCNA. 

      “We are already feeling the excitement for the refreshed Macan and later this year for the eighth generation of the iconic Porsche 911,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. “In September we will unveil the first all-electric Porsche, the Taycan, so all in all we have a thrilling year to look forward to along with our 191 U.S. dealer partners.”

      April results were driven by strong demand for the new Cayenne, with a notable 86.1 percent increase compared to April 2018. The mid-engine 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman together were up 1.3 percent from a year ago. 

      Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) sales in the U.S. totaled 1,975
      vehicles in April, up 9.4 percent year-over-year.
