2017 Lincoln MKC Going on Sale Soon With a Few Changes

The 2017 Lincoln MKC will soon reach dealers with a few changes from last year’s model. That’s the latest from Lincoln, which says that order banks for the slightly revised SUV will open next month — meaning deliveries will likely begin in June.

So what exactly has changed? For one thing, a power lift gate is now standard equipment on all models. The MKC also boasts wider availability of fuel-saving automatic start/stop technology, along with a new auto hold feature that will keep the car stationary — at a stoplight, for instance — without requiring the driver to hold the brake. But perhaps the MKC’s biggest change is the addition of parent company Ford’s new SYNC 3 infotainment system, which makes some substantial improvements over the outgoing unit — including the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Although the changes to the 2017 Lincoln MKC are fairly minor, they serve to further enhance a car we already like. We included the crossover in our list of 10 Must Test Drive Vehicles for 2016, touting its handsome styling, excellent fuel efficiency and smooth, comfortable ride.
