Lincoln's MKC has been substantially enhanced for 2019, bringing major improvements to the looks department as well as safety.

The MKC has proven a huge hit for Lincoln as roughly half the sales are to buyers new to the brand.

Lincoln has rolled out a new SUV called the MKC and it is small but still has the luxury touches you expect in a Lincoln. One of the biggest changes can be seen at the front where the split grille has been replaced by a more traditional one.

Ford will also offer three new Black Label trim options. The Modern Heritage theme features Vianca White Venetian leather with Argento wood accents. Center Stage offers a diamond-L perforation pattern on its Alcantara cloth inserts with Foxfire Red pipe stitching, Jet Black Venetian leather with Firefox Red accents, and genuine wood accents. It also adds new driver-assist features including a pre-collision assist warning and braking system that can detect pedestrians, plus available options like lane-keeping alerts, parallel-parking assistance and a blind spot information system. Built-in Wi-Fi will also be standard across all trims.

Beneath the hood, the new MKC is powered by a standard 245-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo or an available 2.3-liter twin-scroll turbo that doles out 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is available for both engines. Lincoln MKC Reserve models are also available and feature a rich Rialto Green cabin with black ash wood accents.

As part of what the Ford sub-brand calls the "effortless ownership experience", the MKC will come with standard pickup and delivery service to and from dealerships for service visits, plus the use of a loaner Lincoln while the vehicle is being worked on.

"For Lincoln, every client is unique, and we want every element of the Lincoln shop, buy and own process to be a truly personalized and effortless experience", said Galhotra.

The 2019 Lincoln MKC is only a mid-cycle refresh - which makes sense, since I don't believe there's an update planned in the near future for the Ford Escape, off which the MKC is based.
