The 2013 Lincoln MKX earns an average Total Car Score for the Luxury SUVs & Crossovers segment.
Two years ago the MKX received an extensive update, which many reviewers agreed brought improvements that made it a more worthy competitor to the leading crossovers. From its high-quality cabin materials to its improved ride quality and powerful 305-horsepower V6 engine, many noted the MKX was among the most improved vehicles in its segment.
A majority of the criticism levied at the MKX was aimed squarely at the MyLincoln Touch interface. Designed to replace traditional buttons, knobs and gauges with three different touch screens on the instrument panel to access vehicle and infotainment systems, MyLincoln Touch proved to be tedious and distracting for some reviewers. For 2013, this system has received a fairly substantial update, but some of the hold-out critics from last year still see issues with this reworking, including sluggish response time and curiously laid-out controls for some options.
Aside from the aforementioned update to MyLincoln Touch, little else is new for the 2013 Lincoln MKX.
The 2013 Lincoln MKX is a four-door, five-passenger crossover vehicle offered in front- and all-wheel-drive models.
Standard equipment available on both models includes 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, heated and cooled front seats with leather-trimmed upholstery, keyless entry and pushbutton start, dual-zone automatic climate controls, an AM/FM/CD/satellite sound system and the SYNC infotainment system with MyLincoln Touch.
Among the option packages available for the MKX is the Premium Package (polished wheels, HID headlamps and premium leather upholstery) and the Elite Package (voice-activated navigation, HD radio and a vista roof).
The MKX is powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine that produces 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission routes power to the front or all four wheels, depending on the model.
The EPA rates the 2013 Lincoln MKX at 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined in FWD trim, 17/23/19 mpg with the AWD powertrain.
Properly equipped, the 2012 Lincoln MKX can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
