Re: 2019 MKC Revealed

Maybe I haven't been paying attention, but I thought this was supposed to be heavily updated?

Geeshhhh who's the head over there at Lincoln Design? They made the same mistake with the MKZ, making the front end/grill look so flat. Just recessing the grill back a bit would give it much more depth.

And the grill should have more length in my opinion... I hope the MKX turns out better.

I think the original plan was to not update it at all, and just release an All New model, but I'm guessing that was pushed back a little so they decided it was best to at least give it the Lincoln face in the mean time. Looks like they didn't even give it the Lincoln switch gear... :face palm:. It did however receive a new chrome strip above the rear license plate!

even tho I like the new face, esp ON the Z;
I'm disgusted by Lincoln's SLAVEISH conformity, model by model...
...imho a little freedom of (re)interpretation would be so sensible...it'd be better than genius = common.sense!!

New headlight design would've went a long way though.
Those wheels look like the ones from the MKX. They work here.

Re: 2019 MKC Revealed

On a positive note, hopefully this means Lincoln will have something bigger to reveal at the LA Show!

I still wonder about the C & Escape de-coupling - but I'm stubborn + not That rational

'18my MKC's Job1 was just like 10 days ago & the
'18my MKX's Job1 is gonna be 10 days from now...
Don't expect to see either at (most) dealers before November
...I'd love to see BOTH 'refreshes' start January-or-ASAP

But if they don't have anything else slated, I think we'll see them debut at separate shows, just to keep some launch momentum going through multiple shows.
so conversely
*IF* they show both at L.A, they should have somethin else later, like NYC
*IF* they show only One at L.A, we might get ONLY one other later

a short video on facebook
didn't find it on youtube yet so can't embed
