Three years after originally launching, the Lincoln MKC is getting its first revamp. Ford’s luxury brand has officially revealed the 2019 MKC, sporting Lincoln’s new brand design theme molded on top of the existing MKC.
The primary change here is obviously the MKC’s face. Lincoln has swapped out the hood, front clip and headlights with an all-new design that has strong family ties to the Continental and Navigator. It’s a change that has been anticipated as Lincoln plans to propagate its Bentley-looking grille and larger lamps across its product range as it has finally settled on a design language.
Beyond the new face, changes to the MKC are unsurprisingly minor. The rear design already fit with the new design language, so naturally it remains status quo. Even the sheetmetal across the body is unchanged.
Inside is a similar story. Lincoln has largely left the interior untouched. Instead, it is gaining a few new tech features such as 4G LTE WiFi and active safety features.
Powering the 2019 MKC will be the same turbocharged 2.0-liter and 2.3-liter engines that powered the first generation. Only this time Lincoln has boosted the power output to 245 and 285 horsepower, respectively. Those figures are up by five and 10 horsepower.
The redesigned 2019 MKC will go on-sale in the summer. Lincoln will formally reveal it later this month at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
