Thanks LincolnFanFl. It still hasn't appeared on the Fleet website and I've been checking every day.

You're welcome!

It really bothered me that I forgot the more important OG so I took care of that as well..

BTW, Thanks to the Mod for adjusting the thread-title.

I wonder how it will work if a [BL] owner takes their Lincoln to a non-[BL] dealer??
will the regular Lincoln dealer be ready/expected to provide [BL]-level services?

Re: 2016 Lincoln MKX Black Label Order Guide

In my case, it will all come down to pricing (or in other words, monthly lease-cost). I won't go over the top for BL, either. All tech-features are also available on the Reserve-Line and the choice of interior-colors looks promising as well. So a Reserve MKX will be my back-up plan for BL.

Now, talking about the wheels...I guess they dropped these:

Re: ALL 2016 Lincoln MKX OrderGuides: [BL] + regular

Black Label leather and interior color schemes are remarkable, that's really the main reason to purchase the upgrade IMO. I think this is something that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated which I think is going to be hard to do. It's a pretty pricey upgrade option for Lincoln and its typical customer, and it's a custom order so you have to be really invested in the decision making process and waiting around for the order. I'm willing to spring for Black Label on MKX (probably not MKC), but I will probably pass this time since I lease and I'd rather let them work out the bugs in the new MKX before spending big bucks on such an upgrade. Ultimately I'm not sure there is enough value for me as somebody who leases cars, I can understand if it was a car I'm keeping for 4+ years. Black Label might be a little too much lipstick for Lincoln, not enough substance on cars not known for exceptional quality and precision engineering. I expect the take rate in the US to be pretty low for Black Label...but China is another story...and that's the important part. Americans have different attitudes about luxury, Black Label seems out of step even if the idea is enchanting.

Re: ALL 2016 Lincoln MKX OrderGuides: [BL] + regular

^ for me (if I win a lottery)
it could come down to the PAINT, ie CrystalSilver

tho just the cachet/DEALER-attitude of/to [BL] could sway me....

edit
from my limited experience with Lincoln dealers
I wouldn't be too surprised (tho still delighted) if they were willing'n'able to accomodate my desire for a wheel style outside my trim-preference...
...these 18"ers so far:

re-edit
UNLESS those^ are the 20" Reserve-FWD wheels
&
LFFL, aren't the wheels you thumbnailed^above the Reserve-AWD wheels??

According to the OG, they are expecting somewhere around 6% of MKXs to be BL. I don't know if that's realistic or not.

Having owned a BMW individual in the past, I truly appreciate super soft leather and an Alcantara headliner - and I'm willing to pay for it. Just not an additional $150/month. At $75/month, I'll go for it!

You could be right - it's very hard to tell based on the pictures but since there are no other wheels left, I guess those are it.

BTW, those you just posted should indeed be the 20" Reserve FWD-wheels.

20" on this MKX do really appear tiny...

I found this: Adaptive cruise control and pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection....sound good....it is the same one that the Mondeo has?

I think Lincoln already requires a car wash with any service and loaner with any warranty service. If a dealer is not black label ready, then I guess either don't go there or just accept the lesser service.

I don't think it will ever become a nationwide program, anyway, to be honest. My Lincoln dealer thinks they are doing me a favor by providing a shuttle to and from work. They've never offered a loaner, but did give me one the one time I asked. It was a rental Maxima from Hertz. I just can't see my little dealer being able to offer Black Label service but I hope I'm wrong.
