Lincoln MKX:

Ford's luxury Lincoln brand unveiled the 2016 MKX midsize crossover, which sits between the smaller MKC and the Navigator SUV. Outside, the look is slightly sportier and less rounded than the previous model. New features include a hidden front camera that can spritz itself off if it gets dirty and a liftgate that can be set to the driver's preferred opening height so it's not as difficult to close. Inside, there are new massaging seats with side bolsters that deflate to make it easier for occupants to get in and out and inflate again once they're seated. Lincoln also has a 10-year exclusive deal with Revel - Harman Audio's premium brand - for the new MKX's 19-speaker sound system. Under the hood are two engine choices, the standard 3.7-liter V6 with 300 horsepower and an optional 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 with 330 horsepower. The MKX goes on sale in the US this fall. China, South Korea, Mexico and other markets will follow.
