You've arrived and your MKC knows it. When it senses your approach, a suite of features activates as if to say both "welcome home" and "where to next?"
The MKC blends the best traits of a sport crossover with the refinement of a luxury sedan. It begins with the grille framing dramatic HID headlamps with signature LED accents. Crisp lines stretch tautly across the sculpted body. The low roof and high beltline evoke an athletic nature. Available 19- and 20-inch wheels make a bold statement, while felt-like inner wheel wells help soften road noise.
Elevate your Lincoln experience. Featuring a curated collection of interior themes meticulously brought to life in rare, high-end materials and a host of membership privileges, Lincoln Black Label engages the senses and imagination, representing the ultimate in luxury, comfort and service.
The 2018 MKC features available auto-fold power mirrors. These mirrors unfold when you get into the MKC and fold in after you park and lock the doors. There is also a switch on the driver's door that folds the mirrors toward the vehicle to help avoid hitting an object while you're parking.
The available panoramic Vista Roof provides both the first- and second-row passengers with an expansive view. The Panoramic Vista Roof comes with a power sunshade to help keep your vehicle cool when the temperature heats up.
With the MKC key fob in your pocket or purse, simply kick your foot under the rear bumper and the available hands-free liftgate will effortlessly glide open to reveal the rear cargo area. Press a button on the liftgate or kick your foot under the rear bumper again and the liftgate closes smoothly.
Venetian leather, premium Alcantara® fabric and rich woods combine to create an unforgettable tactile experience.
The steering wheel is wrapped in available hand-stitched Wollsdorf leather hailing from the Alpine region of central Europe. It flawlessly complements the craftsmanship and comfort of the MKC interior.
Select a hue to match your mood. Available ambient lighting provides seven color choices. Light emits from the front-console cupholders, door-release handles, front and rear footwells and front-door storage pockets.
Active noise control heightens overall cabin sound quality by reducing unwanted engine noise while enhancing desired sound to help provide a pleasant driving experience. Microphones monitor the sound profile of the cabin, which is then replicated and inverted by a signal processor to create an opposing acoustic wave through the speakers. When the opposing wave meets the original sound wave, they cancel each other out.
Interior noise is greatly diminished with active noise control, felt-like wheel wells, pedestal-style door-mounted mirrors that are designed to minimize wind noise, and specially acoustic-laminate front door glass that reduces road noise.
In addition to soothing to-the-touch Bridge of Weir Deepsoft™ leather, the driver and front-passenger seats come with standard heating and available cooling-making the interior as rejuvenating as it is inviting.
The available Climate Package makes the interior even more inviting while helping to manage the exterior elements. The package includes heated rear outboard seats, a heated steering wheel, auto high-beam headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and a windshield wiper deicer.
The MKC can be equipped with the available 285-horsepower Twin-Scrolled Turbocharged 2.3L engine that also delivers 305 lb.-ft. of torque. Power is delivered by three brilliant technologies-turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT). The 2.3L engine empowers MKC to offer a towing capacity of 3,000 lbs. when properly equipped.
Once parked, your MKC awaits your return. As you approach with your key fob in your hand, purse or pocket the vehicle senses your approach (up to eight feet away) and exterior lighting brightens. Door-handle pockets glow with soft lighting tuned to complement the vehicle's color. A Lincoln welcome mat illuminates the entrance in front of both the driver and passenger doors. Once you're in the car, available ambient cabin lighting glows warmly.
Available driver-activated adaptive cruise control (ACC) operates just like normal cruise control, with one exception-Its sensors can detect traffic slowing ahead and automatically slow your car to maintain the preset distance you've set. When traffic has cleared, your car resumes the set speed. Forward collision warning with brake support, included with ACC, can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield. If you don't react immediately, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
Intelligent AWD uses sensors to constantly monitor traction. It balances torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction, typically before wheelslip can even occur.
This electronic stability system provides enhanced control in slick conditions such as snow, rain or gravel. Roll Stability Control (RSC®) provides enhanced side-slip control and delivers electronic vehicle rollover stability. RSC utilizes gyroscopic sensors to monitor roll rate and vehicle roll motion at least 100 times per second. This helps determine when and how it will apply the brakes to help keep all four wheels firmly planted.
EPAS provides an easy, fluid steering feel at low speeds and a firmer, more controlled feel at higher speeds. And that's not all. It also constantly adapts to changing road conditions and compensates for surface irregularities.
A suite of sensors continuously monitors and adjusts the suspension. The sensors also detect body movement, along with steering and braking dynamics in milliseconds, faster than you can blink. Select the operating mode-Comfort, Normal or Sport-that suits the driving experience you prefer, from exceptional ride quality to a spirited, sporty feel.
The six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission offers the control of a stick shift with the convenience of an automatic. The wheel-mounted paddle shifters on the 2018 Lincoln MKC let you shift gears quickly without taking your hands off the steering wheel. Or, simply relax and let the automatic mode glide efficiently through all six speeds.
Your Lincoln MKC can help you be aware of your surroundings. When the vehicle is in Reverse, the Reverse Sensing System uses a number of sensors in the rear bumper to detect items in your path. As you continue to move in Reverse, beeping will sound and become more rapid as you come closer to items behind your vehicle.
Available active park assist is one of the many driver-assist technologies in the Lincoln MKC. Active park assist uses ultrasonic sensors to help take the guesswork out of parallel parking. Simply press a button and the sensors will locate a suitable parking space. Active park assist operates the steering wheel, while you stay in control of the accelerating, braking and shifting. And just as active park assist helps guide your vehicle into a spot, park out assist uses the same sensors to help you get out of it.
It happens to the best of drivers-unintentionally drifting out of the driving lane. That's when you'll appreciate the available Lane-Keeping System. When activated, it can detect when your car is drifting out of its lane and warn you through a subtle vibration in the steering wheel. Additional settings allow the system to apply steering torque that helps you to steer back to the correct path.
Available BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert helps warn you of vehicles you might otherwise miss. BLIS uses radar in the rear quarter panels to identify a vehicle entering your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the sideview mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to detect vehicles approaching from either side when you're slowly backing out of a parking spot or your driveway. If it detects a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, it sends an audible warning, a visual display in the sideview mirror and a signal in the message center.

Once inside, press the brake pedal and then the start button, shift into gear and go. It's so easy and convenient, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.
Activated when you shift into Reverse, the rear view camera can show you certain objects that are behind your vehicle. It can also be a helpful assistant when you're connecting a trailer. When in Reverse, a video image is displayed on the central screen, with red, yellow and green guidelines providing an easy reference for how far an object is behind you.
Connect your compatible cell phone to this convenient no-extra-charge feature. 911 Assist can call for help in the case of an accident, even if you can't.18 The 911 call goes directly through your properly connected cell phone without the need for intermediary assistance.
