Hmm, there are some Navigator details in that grille like the squarer/taller shape and LED light fixtures just below the headlamps. The headlamps also seem to follow the taller swepted-back shape of the Navigator as opposed to the thin and low shapes we have now. Should give the whole fascia a much more prominent upright SUV character...which might be at odds with the rest of the body...but we'll see.

I'm curious about the Edge update, that face needed an update the day it came out.

Re: Next Gen MKC?

It looks like both the 2019 MKC and MKX might be doing away with the full-width tail lights???

I don't think they are actually redesigning these features at all, they are just covered up by vinyl camo. They are not critical cosmetic features, they don't need to be exposed for testing. Like the MKZ I think the updates are centered entirely around the front-end.

Re: Next Gen MKC?

OK, so I have seen the upgraded MKX several times now as well as the MKC, and I have to say, I am getting used to them. I was critical at first of the MKX, mostly because I really like the X front end. Personally, I was not a fan of the C front end, so this is an improvement imo. Verdict is still out for me on the X, but it is growing on me.

Are we on the right track with the headlights being a Navigator-esque arrangement - with a normal headlight up top and separated turn signal in the bumper?

2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

Re: Next Gen MKC?

I know this is ridiculous but the shape of the fascia camo makes it look a little like the last-gen GMC Acadia front with the prominent square mesh grille and the stacked headlights that sweep up into the hood.

Re: Next Gen MKC?

The headlights are no higher than the current model. Look at the character line in the quarter panel to compare their location.

I think you're right, the fender shape is probably the same but the hood and fascia have been reshaped. Instead of a horizontal plane across the top we have an up-swept design that flows to the lower and large floating grille. So it creates a similar effect by pulling the lines out from the grille and flowing up into the hood and fenders. Most of the time I like that look but Lincoln's grille is just really oversized and flat which isn't a great combo with that overhang since it brings so much visual weight forward by extending the hood and squaring off the corners. I know they are trying to emulate the Navigator and some of the more upscale European designs, it also brings it a bit closer to stubbier SUV look of the popular XT5. I think it will work with the existing MKX body and it seems to be something of a progression of the look instead of a copy/paste. MKX usually gets the best version any Lincoln fascia so we'll see. If I like this fascia it will be the first version of the grille I actually like.

Re: Next Gen MKC?

Are we thinking an LA reveal? For this and the MKX or separate reveals?
