Lincoln MKC Concept unveiled ahead of Detroit debut image

Ford’s luxury brand Lincoln has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the MKC Concept, ahead of the model’s public debut scheduled for the 2013 Detroit Motor Show.

After announcing its plans to introduce the Lincoln MKC Concept during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, and then teasing it just a few days ago, the future production vehicle is finally here and we can now see it in the images posted below, released by the North American based automaker ahead of its official debut scheduled for the over-seas automotive event. Lincoln says that the MKC Concept is based on the same platform as the Kuga / Escape and it’s coming with flared wheel arches, a prominent front grille, stylish looks for the side with the beltline and more.

The Lincoln MKC Concept is 179.3 inches long (4.554 mm), 76.1 inches wide (1.933 mm) without the mirrors and it’s 63.2 inches tall (1.605 mm), riding on a 106.9 inches long wheelbase (2.715 mm). By comparison, the Ford Escape is 1.2 inches shorter, almost 4 inches narrower and 3.4 inches lower than the MKC. The Escape’s wheelbase is also 1 inch shorter. The looks of the Lincoln MKC are being completed by the 20-inch polished aluminum rims wrapped in Pirelli tires. The model is also getting ambient lighting in the cabin, a panoramic roof, wood and chrome finishes and much more. Additional details on the MKC Concept will probably be announced in Detroit.
