Oh, OK. I got my '13 MKX during a 4-year-included promotion. Seeing as my dealership is quite a distance away and their service department isn't open on Saturdays, I've never utilized the service. Plus, over 2.5 years on my MKX I only put on just over 20,000 km.

Employee Pricing plus discounts and negotiated reductions are what motivated me to move at this time even though the lease rates are ludicrous. To me, cap cost reduction is more valuable than lower interest, especially with a MSRP of $67,000.

My GUESS (again, no evidence to indicate that this will be happening) is that Adaptive Steering will be a Job 2 add in and Sync 3 will be MY'17 and I don't believe that the current MYT can be upgraded after the fact. IF you're not in any rush (meaning lease ending or availability of current promotions as in Canada - Employee Pricing and extra 2 yr LMPP until July 31) then I would probably wait. I don't believe there are any launch promotions in the US at this time and lease/financing rates are probably initially really high (6% lease rate in Canada now.)

Also, in looking closer at the roof rails (something I didn't want but ended up with - at least they are subtle) I don't see where you would attach the cross bars. The more I think about it, a roof-mounted ski rack might be better than putting them in their bag inside the vehicle.
Thanks for the pic, I was wondering about that and whether to get it for my new vehicle also; You're right, much better integrated than before.

Still waiting to hear on the status of my loaded Red Ruby MKX.

Anyone know if these initial production models will come with adaptive steering?

I know hoping for Sync 3 is a hopeless cause.

ATTN Lincoln Shoppers


I desperately want RL opinions on TerraCotta vs Hazelnut!
...even if neither is your preference, just so you've seen them...

including a [BL]Thoroughbred comparo would be even Better
but afaik it's not out-there yet...
