The compact MKC concept marks entry of Lincoln in the fast growing utility segment though the company has not revealed their production plans as on date.
MKC Concept is sits on a 106.9 inch wheelbase with an overall length of 179.3 inches. It has been styled by Design Chief Max Wolff who has assumed office in Lincoln from Cadillac in January 2011. The concept sports a split wing grille, LED lighting and aggressive wheel arches on its exterior. 20” wheels mounted in Pirelli rubber with polished aluminum rims complete its exteriors.
Interiors are seen in high quality leather with wood and chrome accents. While a push button transmission shifter mounted to the right of the steering wheel is also evident. The new Lincoln MKC is also loaded with technical features which meet demands of modern day customers and looks like a vehicle closer to production.
