Staff Review Edmunds.com 7.8 out of 10 2013 Lincoln MKX SUV/Truck

The 2013 Lincoln MKX could work out well for shoppers prioritizing interior room and features. But it also has its fair share of drawbacks.

The Lincoln MKX is a conservative midsize crossover that nonetheless offers up a serving of genuine luxury and technology. Not every luxury buyer wants something sporty or edgy.

The Lincoln MKX is quiet, has a solid engine and decent appearance—though it’s a bit too close to the Ford Edge in bloodlines. The MKX does win in technology—it’s loaded. Lincoln did a nice job here, putting its head down and improving a lot. Consumers should at least give it a look.

The new MKX is at the top of its class, a great combination of luxury, technology, driving dynamics and value. As an SUV critic, I’m really impressed by how Lincoln has improved the MKX from an also-ran to a front-runner.

Calling the 2011 MKX new is a bit of a stretch (technically its more like a massive mid-cycle update), but Ford has engineered enough changes to make it not only stand apart from its predecessor, but also to make it harder for the competition in this segment.

The 2011 Lincoln MKX comes off as a convincing luxury crossover, sumptuous inside with a cosseting driving experience and a bit of flair on the outside. This is Lincoln’s best product — and that speaks to the quality of the Ford Edge on which it’s based.

What we have here—finally—is a competitive MKX. Enthusiasts who demand luxury from their SUV or crossover might perhaps be happier with an Audi Q5 or maybe even a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but this Lincoln should satisfy most everyone else.

If you’re in the market for a midsize crossover vehicle, the Lincoln MKX merits a test-drive, especially if you’re considering the Cadillac SRX. It’s better than its flagging sales would indicate.

If you’re willing to pay more to drive a Lincoln rather than a blue-collar Ford Edge, the MKX is a great choice. With this 2011 refresh, particularly the addition of MyLincoln Touch, takes the MKX from the bottom rung to right near the top of the luxury CUV segment.
