I always prefer to see live shots of new products versus studio shots, so I pulled some on the new MKX as it is arriving at dealerships now.

From those shots (and having seen it in person), I conclude the following:

I love the front end. Lincoln's design language is much more proportionate on the front end of the MKX versus the other Lincoln products. The rear design of the new one, however, is a step backwards. There are MKX's ALL OVER around here and most hurried to buy the 2010 just for the rear light bar on the back. I'm not even kidding.

Love the new interior, however the sport interior I do not like, removing the wood inside a Lincoln is a sin...

I like the rear end however I wish it still had the full length tail light

Nice colors.
That is a huge step forward on interior design. I like the rear a lot. Kinda tired of the unibrow rear light perhaps, and maybe I will miss it, but this looks great to me. Hard to fault it.

I like all the new design executions except the N.A. Focus rear tail lights. I appreciate the effort made with the connecting lense flowing into the hatch door to mask the Focus corner lenses, but my eye only registers Focus tail lamps. Shame really, as the rest of the vehicle is beautiful.

The tails look very Milan like to me for some reason. I was never a big fan of the unibrow, but find it odd that it did away with them after the MkT having a relatively decent one.

I love the new interior too Andrew, and I may be mistaken but unlike the MKZ, you can't do away with the wood in the MKZ. I think those pictures are of an interior with the paler shade of wood. If I am wrong though, I am 100% with you on this one.

I am going to miss the unibrow but I do like the new rear treatment as well. I do not conceive how anyone would let go of all the massive improvements on the new MKX (engine, interior, improved build quality, MyLincoln Touch) for a rear stop light treatment . . . unless for the great deals of course.

Great looking vehicle.

I love the looks of the new MKX. It's refreshing, classy and not overdone. The split wing is getting better and better with the newer releases. Before we know it, Lincoln will have quite the stable of nice cars to pick from.

You can get alumnium trim in the MKZ Sport, MKS EcoBoost, and MKT EcoBoost as an option but I believe its standard across the board.
