The 2019 Lincoln MKC is the company's luxury crossover SUV that they introduced in 2015. The MKC's quiet interior, smooth ride and numerous features make it a comfortable option for long trips. With a more modern and refined appearance, the crossover can bear the Lincoln badge with pride.
What’s New for 2019?
The 2019 Lincoln MKC carries on the first generation of this vehicle that debuted in 2015. The 2019 model has some design improvements to the body that make the car more competitive with crossovers in the same price class. The MKC has been given a new grille that virtually matches other luxury vehicles from Lincoln such as the Navigator and the Continental. Those and other design tweaks give the Lincoln a more upscale look.
Lincoln's new design is more like the company's sedan and large SUV offerings, which have until now been superior to the crossover's look. The previous model lacked some appeal due to a large rear and a split grille in the front, but these structures have been improved for 2019. Like the Navigator, the new MKC sports more chrome bling and tighter sculpted body lines. The LED headlamps are reshaped, and the lower bumper has a more appealing chrome accent.
Performance and Handling
The base engine that comes with the 2019 Lincoln MKC is a 2-liter engine with four cylinders that produces 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is combined with an automatic transmission with six speeds delivering power via front-wheel drive. Another option for the higher-tier trim MKC is an upgraded 2.3-liter turbo that produces 285 horsepower and 305 lb.-ft. of torque that is available with all-wheel drive vehicles. The acceleration of the Lincoln is delivered via 18-inch wheels.
The performance and handling of the 2019 Lincoln MKC are commensurate with a luxury SUV. The upgraded 2.3-liter turbo provides an entertaining experience. The smaller base engine provides a very quiet ride, and the start-stop feature saves significantly on gas consumption. The larger engine sends the Lincoln from 0 to 60 mph in slightly less than seven seconds. The turbo-4 engine is enhanced by intercooling and premium unleaded gasoline is recommended.
The MKC can be put into a sportier drive mode that puts its handling on par with European rivals. The drivetrain is a front-wheel-drive type, and the transmission can be controlled via paddle shifters for more dynamic acceleration.
The fuel economy figures for the 2019 Lincoln MKC are EPA-rated at 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway for an overall 23 mpg. With the larger 2.3-liter turbo 4 engine, the mileage is about 1 mpg less. The gas tank holds 15.7 gallons, and the towing capacity of the Lincoln approaches 3,000 pounds.
Tech and Safety Features
The 2019 Lincoln MKC comes with standard tech features such as Apple CarPlay and the Android equivalent that allow your smartphone to interface with the infotainment system. An 8-inch touchscreen provides a smart interface for the Ford Sync 3 onboard system.
At higher trim levels, the Lincoln MKC comes with safety tech features such as collision warning and automatic braking in emergencies. Other available safety aids are monitors to mitigate blind spots and alerts for cross-traffic hazards.
The material finishes of the interior are excellent in its class, even if all areas are not top-tier quality. The comfort of the front seats rivals the high-end vehicles of European luxury models that cost much more. The rear seats are very comfortable as well.
The size of the interior is adequate for small families. It is ideal for people purchasing their first luxury vehicle or single people. The rear cargo space with the rear seats folded is 53.1 cubic feet.

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Lincoln MKC invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Lincoln MKC MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
