Redesigned 2015 Lincoln MKC Ecoboost Ready to Hit the Road

The 2015 Lincoln MKC EcoBoost is ready to shine on the dealer’s showroom floor. Like many other 2015 models, the 2015 Lincoln MKC Ecoboost has a lot of new things to offer for the year, especially when it comes to fuel efficiency. The MKC is a little less powerful this year, yielding 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft torque, but the drop is so small that it’ll barely be noticeable.

The 18 city/26 highway EPA rating for miles per gallon is a modest improvement…
