Simply stated, available adaptive steering adjusts how much the vehicle responds to the driver's steering wheel input in order to turn the front wheels. It works by analyzing vehicle speed and driver steering information. That information is used to automatically adjust the firmness of the steering wheel to produce smooth and precise steering. This system delivers an agile connected feel at high speeds and reduces driver effort at low speeds. To create an even more tailored driving experience, drivers can choose to set their preferred steering setting between Normal, Comfort and Sport modes.
HID headlamps with LED accent light bars come standard on the Lincoln MKX. These bulbs last longer and use less energy than conventional halogen bulbs. The available adaptive full LED headlamps, shown here, help give the driver a broad field of light. Featuring LED technology with adaptive forward lighting, they illuminate in SYNC® with the vehicle's steering to cast light across a wide stretch of road.
Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) provides an easy, fluid steering feel at low speeds and a more firm and controlled feel at higher speeds. The system constantly monitors and adapts to changing road conditions and compensates for surface irregularities.
Available Intelligent AWD uses sensors to constantly monitor traction. It delivers torque to the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction, typically before wheelslip can even occur.
Auto Hold offers relief when you come to stop signs, long traffic signals and other braking situations. When the driver stops the vehicle using the brake pedal, the system will hold and then release the brakes when the accelerator is pushed.
Shortcuts don't apply. An impressively energetic driving performance is matched by impressive fuel economy. The 2018 Lincoln MKX with the 3.7L Ti-VCT engine boasts an EPA-estimated rating of 17 city mpg and 25 highway mpg.* And unlike some crossovers, premium fuel is not required, which could help you save at the gas pump.
What did it take to turn the well-appointed cabin of the Lincoln MKX into your own private concert hall? Quite a bit, actually. Whether it was moving tweeter and midrange speakers closer together to improve sound quality or employing QuantumLogic Surround Sound technology so you can enjoy a variety of listening modes, no note was left unheard. And thanks to an exclusive collaboration with Revel,* you'll not only hear your music the way it was meant to be heard, you'll feel it too.
Expand your capabilities with Lincoln Connect. An embedded modem with 4G Wi-Fi® capability, standard in most 2018 Lincoln vehicles, offers impressive connectivity. Plus, the embedded modem gives the Lincoln Way app greater functionality and remote control of your vehicle.
Available enhanced active park assist makes getting in or out of tight parking spaces easy. Ultrasonic sensors can locate an available spot and help the vehicle steer into place. Perpendicular park assist helps you guide the vehicle into perpendicular spots when you're in Reverse, while park out assist aids in getting out of tight parallel parking spots. Meanwhile, you control the shifter buttons, brake and accelerator for seamless parking.
It happens at times to the best of drivers-unintentionally drifting out of the driving lane. That's when you'll appreciate this driver-activated system. A camera mounted behind the windshield monitors road lane markings to determine vehicle position and detect lane departures. Through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which resemble driving over a rumble strip, the lane-keeping alert can warn you that you're starting to drift outside the lane. The lane-keeping aid actively applies steering torque, which can help you direct your vehicle back into the target lane should the system detect an unintended lane departure.
One less thing to worry about. When it starts to rain or snow, the available rain-sensing wipers* automatically activate and can be set to one of five levels of sensitivity. So intuitive, you'll wonder how you ever got along without them. The five moisture-sensitivity settings accommodate everything from light rain to a downpour.
Upgrade your field of vision from every angle. Four cameras on the front, rear and sides merge to provide a bird's-eye view around the vehicle. You'll be better able to see down sidewalks while backing up and navigating tight parking spots. Plus, a deployable 180-degree split-view camera located in the vehicle's grille helps boost visibility in cross-traffic situations, intersections and seeing around parked cars.
Ultra-Comfort front seats with active motion offer a wide range of adjustability. With 11 independent air bladders, seven of which offer massage, these seats can help decrease muscle fatigue, aches and pains to help keep your focus where it should be—on the road ahead.
By applying sweeping lines and elegant contours, our designers created the 2018 Lincoln MKX to make every drive a liberating experience.
