Re: Lincoln MKC refresh (spy photos)
This appears to be a fairly basic modification of the front fascia, even the lower fascia appears to be mostly carried over despite the new grille, hood, and headlights. You can also see the existing taillights under the camo so my guess is that not much is actually changing back there. The lights are probably the same but they might resculp some areas of the hatch. I don't think an MCE was unexpected since Ford and Lincoln rarely shorten the life of any major investment. They have to get at least 7-8 years out of a major design with an MCE in-between. So either they extend the life of the existing Escape into the next decade, or they just chart separate paths for these products. With the 2017 MCE, the next Escape can't arrive sooner than MY 2020 anyway.
I kinda like it, it's probably going to look even more like the original Audi Q5 than it already did but that's not such a bad thing. I think the interior needs the most work but we'll probably just get some beefed up trim and new switchgear, I'm just not a fan of the 'chin' hanging off the dash.
