The 2015 Lincoln MKC has been officially unveiled, in its final production form, following the debut of a concept just earlier this year, at the 2013 NAIAS in Detroit.
The design of the final production version of the 2015 Lincoln MKC is very similar to the one of the concept car unveiled in Detroit, except probably for the regular door handles, the less aggressive exhausts in the rear, the different taillights and some other tweaks. The model in question has also received a split wing front grille, a wraparound liftgate and the optional all-glass Vista Roof, for the vehicle pictured below.
Standard items found on the 2015 Lincoln MKC will include the 18-inch alloy wheels and front-wheel drive, but future customers can choose the 19-inch rims along with the all-wheel drive system with CCD (Continuously Controlled Damping). As far as the cabin goes, this is getting the plus leathers with French stitching, the Bridge of Weir leather, authentic trim, leather wrapped steering wheel, push-button gear shifter, 14-speaker sound system, SYNC with MyLincoln Touch or an 8-inch touch screen display.
The 2015 Lincoln MKC is taking its power from a 2.0 liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 240 HP (177 kW), at 5,500 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 366 Nm (270 lb-ft), available at 3,000 rpm. There is also an optional 2.3 liter EcoBoost unit available, generating 275 HP (202 kW) at 5,500 rpm and 406 Nm (300 lb-ft) of torque, at 3,000 rpm. The model will enter production in the second quarter of 2014 at the Louisville Assembly Plant in Kentucky and deliveries will start shortly after.
