What: The 2015 Lincoln MKC, the brand’s first compact premium luxury crossover, is expected to infuse new energy into the brand. This is second of four vehicles over the next four years expected to jump-start the dated brand. The MKZ luxury sedan, which joined the brand this year, was the first vehicle helping to kick-start Lincoln’s product revival plan.
When: After making its world-debut on Wednesday, November 13, in New York City, the Lincoln MKC will hits the streets during the summer of 2015.
New Design: The new Lincoln MKC is based-off of the same global platform as Ford’s Escape, Ford’s C-Max, Volvo’s C30 and Volvo’s C70. Up until a few years ago, Volvo was a part of the Ford family.
Like the brand’s recently introduced MKZ sedan, the brand-new, five-passenger MKC boldly wears the Lincoln signature grille in a sleek, curvaceous package. Unlike most of today’s vehicles, the overall design and engineering theme of this baby Lincoln was heavily influenced by women. The interior of the vehicle, one of the best we’ve seen in a Lincoln to date, was designed by Soo Kang, Lincoln’s interior design chief, while the engineering team for the MKC was headed-up by Lisa Drake, the chief engineer for vehicle.
