Sand interior is now available with the dark (ebony) wood panels. I guess this is in response to popular demand.

Re: MKX '08: more Luxury, Innovative Technology, & Std. Features

^^^ Nice, Sobe!
glad they're finding a way to make beige NotBoring!
&
That new grille is nice.
Tho I still like the std. chrome version, it's good to offer choices & it's Good that SYNC is Std.
So
next, offer that grille as an opt on more ext colors
then
maybe add a HID HL and LED fog option
and
a chrome lower fascia/bumper option based on the 60's Continental style (Ford datainers: sketch available upon request)
&
don't wait for MCE's or even the next model year.

Think haute couture and have fall/winter and spring/summer 'collections'.
just keep it coming!

heck, Lincoln could sponsor the next Project Runway (or does Saturn have that 'sewn up' >.< sorry)... just DoN't let the 'designers' anywhere near the interior... 'cept for maybe a one-off charity thingie - OR have the finalists each do one Lincoln vehicle??? Hmmm.... dataminers, you listening?

Could this be a new Lincoln interior direction?

Very good and interesting catch. You can barely see it there but the Temp buttons in the HVAC controls now are surrounded by a chrome ring that visually make a huge improvement.

^^^ maybe they just thought the grey buttons went better with the dark wood?

It'll be interesting to see if they're taking the refinement to the level of having color co-ordinated buttons

I think you might be confusing "refining" with "cost cutting".

Mercury is alive and well. It's called Lincoln.
