Rocket on-Board

Hey, all. Lifetime enthusiast winding down 3+ years of ownership in my dirty, cheatin' Touareg TDI, and I'm considering moving back to Ford or Lincoln when the settlement dust clears. If I had to make a decision today, I'd choose the MKX 2.7T or Edge Sport over the many other cars I've sampled. I'm hoping the mid-cycle model updates bring the 3.0T to the MKX and/or Platinum trim to the Edge. I'm sure gonna miss the diesel's efficiency, though, especially the 700+ mile range.

The 3.0 will be a Lincoln exclusive so it's a safe bet the MKX would get it and not the Edge.

Yeah, I'm aware of that. I'd rather have the 3.0, but the 2.7 will suffice - especially if, no longer at risk of stepping on Lincoln's toes, Ford gives it a power bump. I use my vehicle for my business, and the Edge is less likely to send the wrong message to my clients. (The Touareg was ideal in that regard.) A Platinum Edge could offer most of the bells and whistles I'm looking for. But honestly, 400 HP will be difficult to pass up, so if the 3.0 shows up on the MKX's options sheet, the Edge will need to be darn nice for me to choose it over the Lincoln.
