^ yup

"Anyone who knocks the style is unjustly ragging on Lincoln. The MKX has a similar silhouette to Audi and Porsche crossovers, and the enthusiast press drools over them."

I'm so glad someone else sees this

&
"We also enjoyed the Harman Revel audio system ... does indeed sound good. We'll admit, we were skeptical at first. The three main settings: stereo, audience, and on stage, seemed too subtle during our initial experience. Our view changed late one night when we found an old Springsteen concert on satellite radio. Toggling between audience and on stage, it did feel like we at the show. Our advice: if you take this feature, put up the windows, let all of the Lincoln insulation do its job, and turn up your favorite band. Then you'll see the difference.

That's a metaphor for the 2016 MKX. Lincoln, and this crossover especially, often fly under the radar. But if you actually check out the MKX, you'll notice it's more luxurious, more powerful, and more compelling than before..."

Re: Lincoln MKX First Drive

Still waiting on mine, the build date has slipped again to the end of the month (was originally July 22nd, then August, then September 7th, then September 20th, now September 27th). They are having some issues with parts and quality apparently. I've been waiting 7 months since I ordered and I think I'm on my last nerve with this. Pretty sure I can order and get the new Caddy SRX before this one is ready, haha. I think it's time I admit defeat and move on, just wasn't meant to be this time. I knew this was a risk going into it, Lincoln tends to have very dysfunctional launches and the MKX is no exception. I refuse to extend the lease of this car for a 10th month. Now I have to go find an alternative, I'm open to suggestions, haha! Maybe the new RX?

Didn't you order a fully loaded model? If so, why don't you just get BL? I built a regular MKX and a BL MKX yesterday, fully loaded the regular was about $63k and the BL was about $64k.

Love the profile...love the back...I just don't like the split grill theme.
