Step into a new league of luxury and rev up your game with the new 2015 Lincoln MKC.
The Lincoln MKC is the ultimate in driver comfort and safely. Short of driving itself, the onboard systems help reduce the risk of accidents and ensure safe operation of the vehicle.
While there are all the standard gauges on the dashboard instrument panel, there’s a fantastic detail in the speedometer area, where the speed limit road sign instantly appears. Synced with the onboard map system, this feature will help ensure you don’t go getting speeding tickets! You’re already saving money just by knowing what the speed limit is on the road you’re travelling.
When driving down the highway, the dashboard automatically displays a graphic of the vehicle along with the left and right road lines. When they are green, you are safely within the centre of your lane. If you start to veer towards or over the line, automatic sensors in the vehicle will turn the line from green to yellow.
These same sensors also have physical alters sent to the driver at the same time. The steering wheel will give a light sensation to the driver, cautioning them that they are about to cross the line. It’s a preventative indicator to help reduce the potential risk of hitting a vehicle in the lane next to you or going off the side of the road inadvertently. This indicator only happens when the turning signal is not used to cross the road line.
What’s more, is if you are driving for an extended period of time and you are frequently crossing the road lines, the dashboard will light-up with a warning, suggesting driver fatigue, encouraging the driver to pull over for a short rest break.
As if all those weren’t enough safety features, the side mirrors, which automatically fold in when the vehicle is parked and turned off, have an amber light that automatically comes on warning that it’s not safe to change lanes.
OK, so there is a lot of driver safety in the 2015 Lincoln MKC, however, it’s also a ton of fun to drive!
On the open road, especially mountain passes, most vehicles struggle; but the 2015 Lincoln MKC and it’s giant engine powers up the hills with horsepower to spare! With a touch of the gas pedal, the SUV glides up the hill, almost effortlessly.
For drivers who appreciate more control, the semi-automatic transmission can be put into manual mode and the driver can use the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters to gear up and gear down, just like with a standard transmission, but without the use of a clutch.
Driver comfort is taken to new heights with leather seats, featuring heat for the winter and air conditioning for summer. Yes, the seats are air-conditioned! While there is the standard on-board in-dash entertainment console, complete with rear-view back-up camera, navigation, and Bluetooth connectivity to your smart phone, it has a top-of-the-line THX sound system, to pump out crystal-clear beats.
The ride is fun from the front or rear seats and feels spacious and comfortable. The majority of the roof it glass, front to back, and a portion can be opened allowing in fresh air and natural sunlight. It makes riding in the rear seat more enjoyable.
On top of the fun and safe driving experience, the exterior just screams class. Low-profile tires on aluminum sport rims, high-shine metallic paint, soft and sophisticated lines, and black and silver trim all make the 2015 Lincoln MKC stand out.
If you’re ready to rev up your game and step-up into a new class of luxury, take a 2015 Lincoln MKC for a test drive. You’ll fall in love, instantly!
