Tour the Exceptional Blend of Luxury and Performance That is the New 2018 Lincoln MKX, Right Here in Traverse City, MI

It starts with your approach. HID headlamps belie dynamic signature lighting and exterior LED lamps that fade on to the shimmer of virtual mats to welcome you. LED door handle pocket lighting joins with a glow tuned to the exterior color of your choice -- one of seven. Ambient lighting turns on inside as auto-folding side-view mirrors deploy and beckon you. These are just the beginning of a luxury compact crossover experience to remember. Step into the driver's seat here at Fox Grand Traverse Lincoln, bringing up to four other premium SUV enthusiasts with you. You'll see what we mean.

You'll be struck first by the flowing, driver-centric cockpit and interior. A suspension bridge joins the streamlined instrument panel and spacious center console, creating a veritable command center for your excursion. The centerpiece is an available SYNC® 3 infotainment system, offering enhanced voice-activation and the directional convenience of optional navigation. Moreover, AppLink and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make controlling smartphone apps via the touch-screen display a breeze. Plus, you can look forward to Siri® Eyes Free integration, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capability to remain connected to civilization away from it, and more. There's even the option of upgrade to a Revel® or Revel Ultima® audio system, each capable of delivering the multi-dimensional sound to make any road-trip mix the anthem of an extended vacation.

Better yet, the cabin is peaceful and exquisitely comfortable, too, thanks to sophisticated elements like acoustic-laminate glass and available speaker-driven Active Noise Control. These give way to Ultra Comfort front seating with optional Bridge of Weir Deepsoft&#trade; leather accommodations. Bring optional seat heating and cooling, available Active Motion® massage functionality, and rear outboard seats with optional heat into the mix, and your ride becomes a lap of luxury -- with the most second-row head and leg room in the compact SUV class to boot.

Best of all, the new Lincoln MKX is superbly capable and easy to handle, owing to an energetic standard 303-horsepower, 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine that becomes an available twin-turbocharged, 335-horsepower, 2.7-liter V6 workhorse in select trims. Gear changes proceed swimmingly via the standard six-speed SelectShift® auto transmission and paddle shifters dovetail on the steering wheel when you need your hands near "ten and two."

A safe choice likewise, the small SUV's driver-assist features range from adaptive cruise control, a blind-spot monitor, and rear cross-traffic alert to a lane-keeping system, pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, and enhanced active park assist. That's wraparound protection from your driveway to the highway and home once again. You can even make use of up to a sizable 68.8 cubic feet of cargo space for the trip with 60/40 split rear seating folded, and loading and unloading is a matter of course at your venue using the optional hands-free power liftgate.

The rest of your exciting tour awaits here at 3464 N. U.S. 31 South in Traverse City. Pay us a visit, and we'll show you more of the drive-time world apart that you can expect!
