Despite that the company has recently introduced the all-new Corsair, the MKC remains in production. It is the only model that has left in production from Lincoln’s abandoned three-leather naming policy. If serves as a cheap alternative to more expensive premium crossover. The biggest quality is that you get a lot of features for a reasonable price. The demand for this model is pretty big, so it’s no wonder that the company has decided to keep it in production for some more time. Therefore, we presume that the 2021 Lincoln MKC will carry on in the same way, with familiar design characteristics and features.
- Attractive price
- Smooth ride
- User-friendly infotainment system
- Uninspiring handling
- Subpar interior quality
In terms of the exterior design, it is important to mention that this model was updated recently. Of course, the biggest novelties are those in terms of styling. The previous-generation design language has been finally abandoned, so you won’t be seeing that funny split-wing grille anymore.
The new version gets a completely new face, based on the brand’s new styling philosophy, which includes a rectangular grille and a more conventional styling approach.
Under the skin, this is still a good old MKC design, which has a lot in common with the previous-generation Ford Escape. Therefore, most rivals offer better handling and overall driving characteristics.
While the exterior design was significantly updated, the interior remains the same. The 2021 Lincoln MKC will carry on in the same way. The cabin looks nice, but definitely lack modern feel, especially when compared with rivals like Cadillac XT5.
Also, we don’t like the fact that rear seats are tight. On the other side, the cargo area features quite respectable 25 cubic feet behind the rear seats. Also, the infotainment system is intuitive and modern. Still, the best thing about this crossover is ride quality.
The cabin is quiet and the ride is extremely smooth. This is something that you won’t find at any other place for this price.
2021 Lincoln MKC Engine
The 2021 Lincoln MKC will carry on with two familiar turbo-four engines. Base versions feature a 2.0-liter unit that delivers around 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque.
On the other side, higher trims come with a 2.3-liter unit, which has a max output of around 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque. Both engines deliver pretty good driving dynamics.
When it comes to fuel economy, the base engine returns around 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. These are pretty average numbers for the class, though the good thing is that these engines run on regular fuel, unlike most rivals that require premium gasoline.
2021 Lincoln MKC Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Lincoln MKC in the last quarter of next year. Base models should go around $34,000.
