2015 Lincoln MKC Performance Ready to Conquer the Compact Crossover Segment

2015 Lincoln MKCThe Lincoln MKC is the spearhead of the new Lincoln brand lineup. The MKC, thanks to its status as a compact crossover—the most popular segment right now—and its intrinsic excellence, is a great way to reintroduce yourself to the Lincoln brand, which has made huge strides forward over the last several years.

The 2015 MKC is an all-new vehicle, but it is easily recognizable as a Lincoln thanks to its familiar grille and body design. However, it also has its own personality and moves the brand forward in many ways. It’s based on the Ford Escape’s platform, but takes things to the next level of luxury all over the vehicle. It comes with a 2.0L engine with 240 horsepower, but you can even upgrade to an engine with 285 horsepower instead.

Either way, the 2015 Lincoln MKC performance pairs the engine to a six-speed automatic transmission, and can move from zero to 60 in just 8 seconds. With all that luxury on the outside, premium upholstery and MyLincoln Touch technology on the inside, the MKC is the perfect compact crossover for the segment.
