Finally after few tough years Lincoln seems to have vehicles that will be quite competitive on the market. With the introduction of MKC model they certainly manage to attract more attention, positive attention to its products and the 2015 Lincoln MKC will try to profit on this recent success.
At the recently finished LA Auto Show we were able to see the production ready model that should go on sale during this summer. Destination market is the luxury compact crossover that represents one of the most competitive markets and this means that Lincoln will have to offer a lot to be able to compete against models like Audi Q5, Volvo XC60, Acura RDX, Mercedes GLK-Class, BMW X3 and similar.
Specs Of Lincoln MKC
With the price set to $33.995 and this is with the destination charges, there is no doubt that this is one of the least expensive offers on its market. This was needed to be done so it would be easier for this model to enter this market segment and be successful. Compared to Ford Escape Titanium it is slightly more expensive but it is cheaper than Acura RDX and Volvo XC60, difference is not big but still it is noticeable. Few thousands more is needed for Q5, X3 and GLK models.
