  1. Thank you all for the wealth of information here. I am considering a 2019 MKC. The Lincoln website and the order guides here say the headlamps are LED. However, the window stickers of all 2019s available at 2 local dealerships says they all have HID headlamps with LED signature lighting. And the ones I saw in person didn't seem to have LEDs and looked same as 2018 HIDs. Any thoughts on which one is correct? Or are the LED to be added later in the model year?
  2. All-New Lincoln MKC Provides Backdrop for Design Discussion at Long View Gallery 2015 Lincoln MKC, the brand’s first small premium utility, provides compelling backdrop to informative, entertaining dialogue around designing for a younger luxury customer Luxury automotive and interior designers strive to create warm, open and inviting environments Dillon Blanski, Lincoln exterior designer, and Antonio Molinari, Lincoln interior designer, compared strategies with Rob Brown and Todd Davis of Brown Davis Interiors LINCOLN MKC FORUM - Creating a warm, open and inviting environment aimed at a younger luxury customer is at the heart of the design of the all-new Lincoln MKC, the brand’s first small premium utility. Muscular, athletic exterior design complemented by stunning interior amenities and rich materials combine to create an atmosphere where the driver feels both comfortable and in control. Interior designers strive to achieve many of these same goals when crafting a home’s interior, particularly the desire to offer comfort while expressing personal style. Often the result is progressive, classic design with a modern twist, a trend that experts in the fields of luxury automotive design and interior home design discussed during an informal, yet informative, luncheon on Monday at Long View Gallery. The event was the third stop on Lincoln’s “Engage Your Senses” tour, a series of events designed to shine a light on the new Lincoln MKC ahead of its release this summer. “The Lincoln MKC was designed with a younger customer in mind,” said Dillon Blanski, exterior designer, Lincoln Motor Company. “Through our research, we came to understand that the customer for this car wants avehicle that is warm, open and inviting. It also has to be sporty and exuberant.” The clean, taut, muscular lines of the 2015 Lincoln MKC draw the eye and build anticipation, which carries over to the interior design execution. “A key outcome of interior luxury automotive design is to complement and amplify what you see with a warm and inviting environment,” said Antonio Molinari, interior designer, Lincoln Motor Company. “In the interior, the goal to appeal to a younger luxury customer is shown in particular in the line work, which is spirited and energetic. Most lines in a luxury car are quite long. Instead, we created lines with more snap and acceleration. One of my inspirations was a Formula One car approaching a turn: it slows when approaching, then accelerates with tons of energy out of the turn.” Relentless attention to detail and quality materials separate luxury automotive design. New Deepsoft leather, developed exclusively for the Lincoln MKC by renowned leather manufacturer Bridge of Weir®, authentic “open pore” wood trim and unique door-panel stitching elevate the elegance of the interior. The all-new leather-wrapped steering wheel with a softer, thicker grip is available in hand-stitched Wollsdorf® leather. Details such as these are comparable to what Brown and Davis contend with as they design home interiors. Brown Davis Interiors designed two residences for the Clintons, the British Embassy residence and an array of exceptional projects involving contemporary and historic renovation. Davis sees parallels between luxury automotive and high-end living space in terms of clean, classic and understated exterior design complemented by rich, engaging interiors. “If you look at the architectural landscape of Washington, it’s very rich in tradition; it’s about cohesiveness and not standing out too much,” Davis said. “The thought is to have a very classic-looking or traditional ‘shell’ with a modern interior, often seen in the kitchen and furniture, that reflects the personality and tastes of the client.” Brown added that both design disciplines want to challenge their clients in a positive way. “It’s a very personal experience as we create ideas and get response and feedback from the client,” he said. “In the end what we try to do is take clients to a place they ordinarily wouldn’t get to by themselves.” Previously, the “Engage Your Senses” tour stopped in Miami for a visit with celebrity chef Minerva Vazquez and then in Atlanta as personal service was explored with the staff of the Mandarin Oriental Atlanta Hotel. The tour will continue with events in Boston and Chicago. The all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC is scheduled to be on sale in Lincoln showrooms this summer.[/url]
  3. Ford’s Lincoln-Unique MKC Welcomes BMW Buyers Craig Trudell - Bloomberg LINCOLN MKC OWNERS - Ford Motor Co. is trying to revive its Lincoln line, said its newest utility vehicle will share little in common with the similarly sized Ford Escape in a bid to lure BMW and Audi buyers. The MKC utility debuts in mid-2014 with the brand’s first Lincoln-exclusive engine, said Lisa Drake, the model’s chief engineer. An approach-detection feature will light up the MKC’s headlamps, taillamps and door handles when owners approach with their key fob. LEDs beneath the side mirrors project Lincoln “welcome mats” on the ground alongside the doors. READ MORE HERE
  4. Will the 2015 Lincoln MKC Transform Ford’s Luxury Brand? John Rosevear - The Motley Fool LINCOLN MKC OWNERS - Ford on Wednesday unveiled the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC, a "small premium utility vehicle" that will soon join the white-hot compact-luxury crossover segment. The MKC is the latest move in Ford's long-range plan to turn Lincoln into a relevant -- and global -- premium brand. Ford said in a statement that the MKC is "the second of four all-new Lincoln vehicles to fuel the brand's reinvention." The first was the mid-sized MKZ sedan, which hit Lincoln dealers earlier this year. The MKZ is selling well, but it hasn't -- yet -- proven to be Lincoln's breakout product. Should Ford have higher hopes for the MKC when it arrives at U.S. dealers next spring?

  7. Lincoln's MKC Is Latest Step Towards A Comeback Alex Davies - Business Insider Lincoln MKC Owners - Ford has revealed the Lincoln MKC, a small luxury SUV. About a year ago, Ford announced a big plan to relaunch Lincoln, its once great, now lame luxury brand. The plan started with the MKZ, an eye-catching sedan that fell short of our expectations. But Ford kept critics at bay with the mantra: This is a long process that doesn't hinge on the success of a single car, and we're going to put out four new cars in the next four years. Today, Ford gave us our first look at car number two: the 2015 Lincoln MKC. READ MORE HERE
  8. ‘Lincoln Experiences’ Use Technology to Make Driving More Engaging With the unveiling of the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC small premium utility, The Lincoln Motor Company introduces Lincoln Experiences to cater to today’s progressive luxury car buyer Featuring highly crafted new products, luxurious automotive features and an enhanced dealership experience, Lincoln Experiences are at the heart of Lincoln’s drive to reinvent the iconic luxury brand With Approach Detection, MKC responds to its owner’s arrival and issues a warm welcome that includes illuminated welcome mats next to both front doors and soft lighting in the door-handle pockets LINCOLN MKC OWNERS - It isn’t just about making luxury cars; it’s about creating unique driving experiences. The Lincoln Motor Company – with the reveal of its all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC small premium utility vehicle this morning – introduces Lincoln Experiences, a suite of customer-focused comforts designed to enhance the buying and ownership experience. Lincoln Experiences are at the heart of the company’s drive to reinvent the iconic luxury brand by thoughtfully implementing technology that creates a more personalized car-ownership experience. “Lincoln Experiences are about creating a warm, personal driving experience every time a Lincoln owner approaches their vehicle,” said Matt VanDyke, Director, Global Lincoln. “Today’s premium car buyer is more demanding than ever. Our goal is to create vehicles that not only meet those evolving demands, but exceed them and redefine what the luxury car-buying and driving experience should be.” Vehicles in the small premium utility segment are no strangers to high-tech offerings. Lincoln offers a fresh point of view in how the brand integrates technology to create a warmer, more personal driving experience. From the warmth of Approach Detection, to state-of-the-art features like the all-new embedded modem and MyLincoln Mobile™ app, technology plays a lead role in helping every MKC owner interact with the vehicle. Lincoln Experiences begin before a driver gets behind the wheel of an MKC. Approach Detection senses an approaching owner from up to nearly 9 feet away and the vehicle responds by illuminating 3-foot by 1-foot “welcome mats” on the ground next to both front doors. Simultaneously, signature lighting in the headlamps activates and the door-handle pockets glow with soft lighting tuned to the vehicle’s exterior color. Drivers can interact with the vehicle remotely using the smartphone-enabled MyLincoln Mobile app. An embedded modem on each vehicle communicates with the app which allows owners to start, lock, unlock and locate the vehicle. Drivers also can use the app to perform a variety of other functions such as place a call for roadside assistance; monitor the vehicle’s fuel level; check the tire pressure and battery status; and program engine start times. Production of the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC is slated to begin in the second quarter of 2014 at the Louisville Assembly Plant in Louisville, Ky. Vehicles will begin arriving to Lincoln dealerships next summer.
  9. Sporty 2015 Lincoln MKC Small Premium Utility is Elegant by Design Lincoln design DNA showcased in the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC gives luxury consumers a unique, fresh, sporty option in the small premium utility segment With low shoulders, Lincoln’s signature split-wing grille, and a unique wraparound liftgate, MKC stands out from the small premium utility crowd Push-button transmission shift, hand-crafted leather trim and a Panoramic Vista moon roof are among the many unique MKC interior highlights LINCOLN MKC Owners - Some luxury car buyers seek elegance. Others desire superb comfort. And others crave performance. Now, drivers in the small premium utility segment can have it all in one vehicle. The Lincoln Motor Company revealed this morning the elegantly sporty 2015 Lincoln MKC. Entering as the rapidly growing small premium utility segment, the Lincoln design team faced the dual challenge of meeting the ever-changing demands of younger luxury vehicle consumers while further defining the Lincoln design DNA. The result is a vehicle that stands out, both in how it looks and how it performs. From any angle, it is unmistakably a Lincoln. From its signature split-wing grille flanked by High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps to its hands-free, wraparound liftgate featuring full-width LED tail lamps, MKC’s design is a convergence of elegance, sportiness and customer-focused technology. Continuing a design ethic that was first introduced on the all-new Lincoln MKZ midsize sedan, the sleek, sculpted body of the MKC stands apart from other small premium utility vehicles. Its high beltline and low shoulders create a sturdy, athletic presence, while attributes such as pedestal side mirrors add a dash of elegance. Features such as soft exterior lighting and an available Panoramic Vista glass roof add to MKC’s luxurious, sophisticated personality. “We’re confident we’ve created an all-new vehicle that will attract new customers to the brand while meeting the expectations of long-time Lincoln drivers,” said Max Wolff, director, Lincoln Design. “The execution of the new liftgate is a prime example of how a signature premium design element can create a better customer experience.” The MKC Concept, shown at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, introduced a uniquely crafted wraparound liftgate, a design feature that carried over to the production model after an enormous collaborative effort from the Lincoln design and engineering teams. Its side-cut design gives MKC an uninterrupted rearview to epitomize elegance, while its hands-free feature is another example of Lincoln’s commitment to build customer-friendly vehicles. Those aspirations also carry through to the interior, where the merging of craftsmanship and technology combine to offer a warm, luxurious environment. Featuring an architecturally unique instrument panel that showcases Lincoln’s signature push-button gear shifter, MKC creates an open, welcoming interior. Inviting leathers and available Bridge of Weir leather and real-wood trim accentuate MKC’s elegance and grace. “We gave attention to every detail to convey a stylish, luxurious vehicle,” said Soo Kang, Lincoln interior design chief. “The structure of the interior allows for openness, and that space contributes to the overall ambience. We want this vehicle to not only meet but often exceed the expectations of the new Lincoln customer.” To be more consistent with the Lincoln driving experience, an all-new Lincoln steering wheel debuts on MKC and will be available on all future Lincoln vehicles. This highly tactile leather-wrapped wheel provides better feeling and control and puts the brand’s new design DNA in the driver’s hands. “The Lincoln nameplate was built around high-quality, luxury vehicles that were instantly recognizable, and MKC continues that legacy,” said Jim Farley, executive vice president of Ford Global Marketing, Sales and Service and Lincoln. “Today’s luxury customer is looking for something different, something unique. MKC is further proof that Lincoln is intent on providing that unique driving experience.” Production of the Lincoln MKC is slated to begin in the second quarter of 2014 at the Louisville Assembly Plant in Louisville, Ky. Vehicles are due in showrooms next summer.
  10. All-New 2015 Lincoln MKC Small Premium Utility First to Offer 2.3-Liter EcoBoost Engine Underscoring the commitment to craft uniquely Lincoln vehicles, the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC small premium utility will be the first to offer the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder turbocharged engine This all-new engine will offer projected best-in-class horsepower per liter and best-in-class torque per liter Featuring a twin-scroll turbocharger and a three-port integrated exhaust manifold (IEM), the 2.3-liter EcoBoost advances The Lincoln Motor Company’s efforts to build powerful and fuel-efficient vehicles An all-new vehicle deserves an all-new engine. LINCOLN MKC OWNERS - The all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC small premium utility, unveiled earlier today, adds a key new option to The Lincoln Motor Company lineup of premium vehicles, an available all-new engine - a 2.3-liter EcoBoost® turbocharged four-cylinder powerplant. “Core to the Lincoln reinvention is creating new vehicles that are unique not only to the brand, but also to the premium automotive market,” said Jim Farley, executive vice president of Ford Global Marketing, Sales and Service and Lincoln. “The 2.3-liter EcoBoost helps us achieve that in the all-new 2015 MKC by setting a new standard in the balance of performance and efficiency.” The 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder offers best-in-class performance even when measured against competitors’ six-cylinder engines. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost offers projected best-in-class horsepower per liter and best-in-class torque per liter, generating 275 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 300 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 rpm, according to preliminary test data. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost, standard on MKC, generates 240 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 270 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 rpm, according to preliminary test data. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost was specifically engineered for higher performance. Two factors pivotal to the success of the newest entry in the benchmark EcoBoost engine lineup are a three-port integrated exhaust manifold cylinder head and a twin-scroll turbocharger. “The three-port IEM design is the key driver for performance because it improves airflow and optimizes exhaust energy pulses through the turbocharger,” said Pete Pandolfi, 2.3-liter Engine Supervisor for Lincoln. “The three-port IEM and twin-scroll turbo design really opened us up to have outstanding power and refinement.” The exhaust flows from the inner and outer pairs of cylinders are kept separate as they go through the three ports into the two scrolls of the turbocharger. Separating the exhaust pulses until they hit the turbine wheel minimizes the backflow into the next cylinder that fires, preserving energy to help spin up the turbo. Turbo lag is virtually eliminated for quicker response when the driver needs power for passing while enabling the exhaust valve to stay open longer for lower emissions and up to 15 percent better fuel economy than comparable six-cylinder engines. Production of the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC will begin in the second quarter of 2014 at the Louisville Assembly Plant in Louisville, Ky. Vehicles will begin arriving to Lincoln dealerships next summer.
  11. Lincoln's Next Move: Lincoln MKC Fool / John Rosevear Ford's reinvention of its Lincoln luxury brand hasn't yet showed the conviction of General Motors' all-out push to elevate Cadillac to the global top tier of luxury cars. But it's making some progress: After a difficult launch, the new MKZ sedan is getting some market traction -- and now Ford is gearing up to launch Act Two of Lincoln's renaissance, the MKC shown above. But where is Ford going with Lincoln, and why? In this video, Fool contributor John Rosevear looks at the (very good) hard-headed business reasons why Ford should turn Lincoln into a thriving luxury brand -- and at whether Ford's moves so far are putting Lincoln on the right course for global success.

  12. Had my '12 Focus serviced yesterday at my local dealership and while I was paying my bill an employee dropped off a document with the cashier to give to another employee. It was clearly marked "2015 Lincoln MKC" and appeared to be a copy of an order guide or something very similar to one. I was dying to get a closer look at it as it lay on the counter just beyond reach. Anyone have an inkling as to when we might see this documentation? I'm really interested in the MKC - would love to be back in a Lincoln again but I don't need a sedan and we don't need an additional MKX in the family.
