Lincoln is the renowned manufacturer of some of the finest luxury vehicles on the market today. The company is generally known to manufacture luxury sedans. However, they have taken everyone by surprise with the features offered in the all new MKX. The 2014 Lincoln MKX is a crossover vehicle but is comparable to a topnotch luxury sedan.

It boasts a spacious interior, along with sufficient cargo space. Moreover, the engine of this fabulous MKX generates quite a bit of power, all the while providing an excellent gas mileage. In short, it is the perfect choice for drivers who want the luxury of a top-of-the-line sedan and plenty of cargo space. Let’s look at what Lincoln offers with the new MKX:

Engine Specifications

The best aspect about the 2014 Lincoln MKX is the attention to detail. Not only has the company made it luxurious, it produces immense power as well. In other words, Lincoln has not left anything to chance with the 2014 Lincoln MKX. Lurking under the hood of this beautiful crossover is a massive V-type engine with six cylinders. The engine capacity is 3.7 liters. This engine is the same one which is installed in the Mustang. This is what guarantees optimum performance.


The massive 3.7-liter engine generates a whooping 305 ponies. Even though this is the same engine as the Mustang, the 2014 Lincoln MKX is progressively heavier. Even so, the spectacular engine does not fail to perform. The engine allows the 2014 Lincoln MKX to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles an hour in a mere 8 seconds. This may not seem like much, but for a car weighing in at 4,000 pounds, it is pretty impressive.

Transmission Options

The 2014 Lincoln MKX is not available in manual transmission option. The automatic transmission available in this crossover vehicle is state-of-the-art. It is a 6-speed automatic with select shift technology. Moreover, this transmission has a pedal activation option as well. In addition to the transmission, the 2014 Lincoln MKX has two drivetrain options. One variant of the MKX is a front-wheel drive.

The second variant is an all-wheel drive. Without a doubt, the all-wheel version of the 2014 Lincoln MKX exceeds all expectations in terms of handling. To give it an even better handling, each of the variants has an electronic power steering system. Even though the 2014 Lincoln MKX is a heavy vehicle, it handles like a charm because of the steering system.

Interior Styling

The interior styling of the 2014 Lincoln MKX is too good to be true. The first thing you will notice is the leather trim. There is hardly any space where you will find any plastic. The dash, the door panels and of course the seats, are all covered in high quality leather. The gauges of the 2014 Lincoln MKX are a combination of analogue and digital displays. The interior of the MKX is not very flashy. It is simple, but it boasts elegance and class.

Exterior Design

The first thing you will notice about the 2014 Lincoln MKX’s exterior styling is the massive wing-shaped grille. In fact, the grille is what gives this MKX its unique appearance. To tone down the aggressive frontend styling, the rear-end styling has been mellowed down. One of the best aspects of the exterior styling is the front bumper. The frontend and the bumper seem as if though they are a single structure.
