2018 Lincoln MKX Features by Trim

The Premiere trim relies on LEDs for the tail lights and signature lighting on the High-Intensity Discharge headlights with autolamp. Chrome highlights both the door handle inserts and dual exhaust tips. Dual-zone electronic automatic temperature controls allow separate climate levels for driver and front passengers while seated on power-adjustable front seats trimmed in simulated leather. An 8-inch touchscreen display controls the SYNC 3® infotainment system.

To maintain visibility during the day, the Select trim adds LED Daytime Running Lights. The rear becomes easier to load with a hands-free power liftgate that opens when you kick your foot under the rear bumper. Ambient lighting soothes the leather-upholstered interior. The power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel adjusts for driver comfort with settings stored in memory. Adding natural touches are solid wood trims in High Gloss Brown Swirl Walnut and Espresso Ash Swirl.

The adaptive High-Intensity Discharge headlights in the Reserve trim shoots its beams in the direction that you turn the wheel so you see around curves more quickly. Bringing in the sun and the stars is the Panoramic Vista Roof® that features a power sunshade to prevent overheating. The heated and cooled front seats include power lumbar support and memory for the driver side.

Building on the amenities of the Reserve trim puts LEDs on the headlights, upgrades the leather upholstery, improves the headliner with simulated suede, and adds 20-inch wheels. To enhance your musical appreciation, the Revel® Ultima Audio includes HD Radio™ technology and 19 speakers. The top of the line grants access to a premium maintenance plan for four years of 50,000 miles, an in-home consultation and test-drive through a mobile showroom and such premium materials as Venetian leather.

Advanced Parking Assistance and Safety

2018 Lincoln MKX RearThe driver-assist features of the 2018 Lincoln MKX begin with the rearview camera that activates when you pull into reverse so you can see what's going on behind you. Cross-Traffic Alert informs you if a vehicle is about to cross your rearward path. An available 360-degree camera integrates images from the front, rear and side cameras to deliver a virtual top-down view around the SUV. With the 180-degree split-view camera, these views protect you from bumps and other hazards during maneuvers in tight spots. The camera also detects when you inadvertently wander out of your lane without activating a turn signal. The Lane-Keeping System alerts you and then applies steering torque to set you back onto your target path. When you do want to change lanes, the Blind Spot Information System tells you if a vehicle has entered your blind zone by lighting up an indicator on the exterior mirror. You'll get in and out of tight parking spaces more easily with Enhanced Park Assist. Ultrasonic sensors help locate an available parking spot and assist with steering you into it while you control the brake, accelerator and shifter buttons.
