2013 Lincoln MKX
2013 Lincoln MKX

New For 2013

Not much. New twenty-two-inch wheels; Kodiak brown metallic, ginger ale, ruby red metallic, and smoked quartz metallic exterior paint colors; and paddle shifters are the primary differences. The MKX gets minor Sync upgrades and the ability to turn the vehicle into a mobile Wi-Fi hot spot.


The MKX’s styling is unmistakably Lincoln, as its front end boasts the marque’s signature split-wing grille and its body shape is similar to that of its larger SUV sibling, the MKT. Power comes from a 3.7-liter V-6 that produces 305 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, thanks to innovations like twin independent variable camshaft timing. The MKX records a respectable 19/26 mpg city/highway on the EPA’s test cycle with front-wheel drive. When equipped with all-wheel drive, those figures drop to 17/23 mpg. The MKX’s interior features leather-trimmed seats and a choice of two types of wood accents. On top of what is an impressive standard-features list, the MKX offers adaptive cruise control, a blind-spot information system, programmable MyKey, and a capless fuel filler. The MyLincoln Touch driver-connect technology cranks Sync’s functionality up to eleven—at least when it functions properly. We’ve experienced some trouble getting the capacitive touch screen to work, and most testers agree that the system is more distracting than having physical buttons and knobs to control the various vehicle functions. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard; up to twenty-two-inch wheels are optional. Improved use of sound-deadening materials helps keep wind and road noise down.


Front and side air bags, stability and traction control, front-seatbelt pretensioners, tire-pressure monitoring, ABS, hill-start assist, automatic headlamps, and a reverse sensing system are standard. Adaptive headlamps, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, a rearview camera, collision warning with brake assist, and adaptive cruise control are optional.

You'll like:

  • Respectable fuel economy
  • Optional twenty-two-inch wheels

You won't like:

  • Fussy MyLincoln Touch
  • Average handling

Recall Date
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles manufactured September 2, 2010, to November 30, 2013; 2013-2014 Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS vehicles manufactured August 25, 2011, to November 30, 2013; and 2013-2014 Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT vehicles manufactured September 12, 2011, to November 30, 2013. In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention circlip may not have been properly installed, and as a result, the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving and without prior warning.
If the halfshaft and linkshaft become disengaged while driving, power will no longer be transmitted to the wheels, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, if the parking brake is not applied before exiting the vehicle, the vehicle may roll away despite the transmission being placed in 'Park', increasing the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage, free of charge. The recall began on August 4, 2014. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S10.
