The 2011 Lincoln MKX features the first application of industry-exclusive MyLincoln Touch driver connect technology, which creates a whole new way for customers to interact with digital and vehicle technology.
The MyLincoln Touch replaces traditional vehicle buttons, knobs and gauges with clear, crisp LCD screens and five-way buttons like those found on cellphones and MP3 players.
A wealth of upgrades means the 2011 Lincoln MKX will provide a more connected feel between the driver and the road through responsive acceleration, engaging steering, spirited handling and confident braking.
The 3.7-liter V-6 is mated to a six-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission, which gives customers the option of a fun-to-shift manual experience. Horsepower has been increased to 305 — a 15-percent increase compared with the outgoing product — while torque is up to 280 lb.-ft., marking a 12-percent improvement.
The new 18- and 20-inch wheels are more dynamic and expressive. Instead of a familiar linear or blocky appearance, the wheels encompass a variety of undulating and complex shapes that help the 2011 Lincoln MKX appear always in motion. The vibrant wheel shapes again underscore the attention to detail found throughout the 2011 Lincoln MKX.
All-new leather-trimmed seats, comfort sections and standard tuxedo stripe embrace the new Lincoln sew style. More genuine aluminum appliques are standard, with aluminum accents on the door added to the spears on the instrument panel.
The two available wood accents — Olive Ash and Walnut Swirl — on the steering wheel, dashboard and doors add character and form; each selection has a livelier, natural appearance, adding even more character to the interior.
