The release of the 2019 Lincoln MKC is certainly being eagerly awaited upon by many. The American manufacturer has unquestionably worked hard to stay in the race with its European and Japanese counterparts. While a lot still isn’t known about its release date, the upcoming model has certainly got its consumers on their feet.
2019 Lincoln MKC – Modernized Look
Despite not everything being officially confirmed, a lot has been talked about the 2019 Lincoln MKC. Most of the modifications are expected to be within the cabin. Consequently, it will have more features of safety and luxury for the ones inside it. Its exterior has been very slightly redesigned from the previous year’s model. The vehicle is equipped with impressive bright headlights surrounded by beautiful LEDs. Not to forget, the gorgeous backlights in its late models will also be improved, giving it a sportier look like never before. Having the same chassis and body size, the 2019 Lincoln MKC is going to have almost the same dimensions as its previous versions. Subsequently, it will be as comfortable as always for a family of four, if not more.
The interior and the system specifications, though, speak a completely different language. Giving priority to safety and comfort, the 2019 Lincoln MKC is equipped with an enhanced cruise control system, sensors at the front and the back, an improved power steering, rearview cameras to facilitate parking, lane-sensing technology, traction control, BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) and emergency call notifications in case of mishaps. As a luxury car lineup, the crossover packs a punch with high-quality leather seats and a glazing wooden dashboard. Additionally, individual lamps have also been provided for maximum comfort. The entertainment and navigation system comes with a big touchscreen display, Bluetooth, and a powerful audio system. Speaking of fun, comfort, and pleasure, your friends and family will have nothing to complain about.
2019 Lincoln MKC – Under the Hood
The 2019 Lincoln MKC is expected to be offered in two EcoBoost engine options. The first – a 2.0 – liter engine capable of producing 240 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 270 lb-ft of torque at 3,000 rpm.

Likewise, the manual transmission via paddles located behind the steering wheel is also available. The automobile presents a pretty decent mileage too with the following city/highway fuel economy: the 2.0 liter will have 21/28 mpg (FWD) and 19/25 mpg (AWD). On the hand, the 2.3 liters will have a fuel economy of 18/25 mpg (AWD).
2019 Lincoln MKC – MSRP and Release Date
The Lincoln MKC has always been an affordable family car. Talking about the 2019 model, the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is said to be a little over $33,600 for the 2.0-liter Premier model. That is an impressively affordable price tag for a luxury crossover which has so much to offer. The MKC Black would be starting close to $46,000.
