First off, the exterior retains the general profile of the MKX concept that debuted last year at the Beijing Auto Show, but having a more “shrink-wrapped” look on the door panels. The production MKX also gets fully adapable HID headlamps with available LED accents, as well as a less bold chrome accent by the lower air intake, giving it a more conventional appearance that doesn’t look like the front of Iron Man’s helmet.
The only info leaked regarding powertrain was that the MKX will sport the new 2.7-liter six-cylinder ecoboost that will also power the 2015 Ford F-150 and Edge Sport. The engine is capable of producing a decent 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque.
Surprisingly, the images of the infotainment screen indicate that the Lincoln MKX will carry over the current MyLincolnTouch interface and not Ford’s new Sync 3 system, however that could easily be changed by the time the midsize SUV hits dealer lots. Feature-wise, the leaked info states that there will be an available 360-degree parking camera available.
This isn’t the whole boat of info Lincoln Mo. Co. plans to drop during the official unveiling at Detroit, so we expect to confirm these details and more on Tuesday.
