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.
