I was thinking the same thing. With what looks like a longer rear overhang. But hoping it maintains the dimensions similar to the Porsche Cayenne. I can also see the front end is a bit lower an longer than the new Edge. No clamshell rear hatch would be good so the side profile will be cleaner without an additional vertical cut line.

Re: FIN Exclusive: 2016 Lincoln MkX Spy Shots

Thanks a bunch, Borg!

It looks like it will retain the concept's silhouette, but it looks like they didn't keep the concept's dash-to-axle ratio. And yes, the front overhang looks longer than the concept's.

So far, I like what I see.

The Porsche, Audi, and VW large SUVs all have longitudinal engine placement with the front wheels extended out and shorter front overhangs, much like the MKX concept in appearance. In order to keep the longer hood they'll have to increase the front overhang which is counterproductive to both style and weight balance.

Re: FIN Exclusive: 2016 Lincoln MkX Spy Shots

first: 3 cheers for Borg!!! ( actually, 1 for each pic )

2: just now thinking of another advantage for switching the biggest engine from 3.5/3.7 to Nano...
...requires less engine compartment room!,
thus a bit more wiggleroom to play with more RWDish proportions...
...I just/really like that they seem to have kept more of the (what I prolly incorrectly-call) monocoque-shape from the current Xedge than the nextgen Edge has -- whose "edgy-er" creases+ridges make the overall shape look "looser" to me (hard to decribe)

just-imho, if they made those^, or some other high-visibility styling thingie,
part of, or only available with [BlackLabel],
the Take-Rate would zoom close to 100%

Re: FIN Exclusive: 2016 Lincoln MkX Spy Shots

Here's a comparison with the concept. I, for one, am extremely pleased. Sure, maybe a LITTLE bit is lost between the dash and axle, but generally speaking, the shape remained very very nicely and this should turn out as one sweet ride !!

I noticed that too. You can see the LED strip that goes downwards towards the grille between the main headlight and the blinker(or brights? whatever). Maybe there will be some sort of LED border around the unit to mimic the concept's lighting. Perhaps the headlights will be set inwards a bit too to appear as though they are set within the grille a bit. If either of those things happen though, it should still look a bit more aggressive than the MKC imho.

Re: FIN Exclusive: 2016 Lincoln MkX Spy Shots

The MKX concept is a bit more outlandish than the Edge concept, but I"m hoping for some sort of distinctive MKX design signature which the concept did have. We can't really see it here but it's possible we'll see that grille/Headlight treatment in some fashion, probably not as dramatic or as recognizable. The concept's lower fascia clearly isn't on the production vehicle, which is to be expected...you need vents and stuff

I guess my biggest fear is that this is literally just an MKC skin on an Edge body, sans the clamshell. But I bet it will look better, ha!

"The MKX concept is a bit more outlandish than the Edge concept, but I"m hoping for some sort of distinctive MKX design signature which the concept did have."
like?
maybe: grille/Headlight treatment...
the extreme blocking within the camo (I don't believe they're that slit-like) supports there being something special there - like the concept?

while chopping (Mission) the front, I wasn't enthralled with the concept's lower fascia anyway
just-imho

"I guess my biggest fear is that this is literally just an MKC skin on an Edge body, sans the clamshell. But I bet it will look better, ha!"
well, the Xconcept used the same grille (mostly) & side swoops above the wheels
so there must be a lot of resemblance
tho
the pix give me the feeling the realX's C-pillar is different from its concept & more different from the Edge
*IF*
the Aviator is coming out sooner than several years (like maybe next? or just after?),
wonder if they might have nextgen styling already pretty much developed
AND might have used current-gen themes but easily updated for the established X,
allowing the new Aviator to make its splash before some kind of gen2mce for the 2017my/cy X?????

(( frequent updating AND planning it long ahead of time
is a major rant of mine ))
