2016 Lincoln MKX Leaks Ahead of Detroit Auto Show

After an extremely futuristic concept vehicle presented last year at an auto show in Beijing, Ford's luxury division let the cat out of the bag. Here's what you've been waiting for, ladies and gents, the Edge-based 2016 Lincoln MKX mid-size crossover CUV.

The first major redesign in seven year of the nameplate, the 2016 Lincoln MKX five-seater is going to be unveiled in a matter of days at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. What you can admire in the photo gallery are leaked pics via joseodiaga4, a FordInsideNews forum member and Blue Oval aficionado.

Underpinned by a variation of the Fusion's and 2015 Ford Mondeo's CD4 platform, the production-ready MKX is basically a reskinned 2015 Ford Edge. In comparison to last year's concept, the side mirrors and headlights were mildly restyled. Other than that, the wraparound taillights and every other visual made it.

Technincal information is still scarce at the moment, but do expect it to be driven by a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 mill with about 325 horsepower and 375 lb-ft (508 Nm), be it front-wheel drive or the optional all-wheel drive variant of the MKX. A 2-liter EcoBoost may also be offered, with around 245 HP and 270 lb-ft (366 Nm), with both powerplants to be coupled to a six-speed Ford SelectShift automatic transmission.

Furthermore, we also know that a Revel audio system will enhance the 2016 Lincoln MKX's Ford SYNC Gen III experience with "uncompromising acoustics and intuitive technologies." The other most promising details of the cabin are the Volvo-like floating center console and the sea of wood, metal and leather upholstery.
