2014 Lincoln MKX

New For 2014

Lincoln has not yet released information on changes to the 2014 Lincoln MKX.

Vehicle Summary

Based on the popular Ford Edge, the Lincoln MKX crossover debuted in late 2006. It was face-lifted five years later and has continued with very few changes since. Although its sales are just a fraction of the Edge's, the 2014 Lincoln MKX remains the second-best-selling model in the Lincoln range.

Overview

The 2014 Lincoln MKX is an elegant crossover that looks a lot like the rest of the luxury brand's lineup and almost nothing like the plainer Ford Edge on which it is based. Lincoln's waterfall chrome grille adorns the nose, eighteen-inch wheels are standard, LED taillights highlight the liftgate, and rear privacy glass helps lend the crossover a more upscale demeanor. It's the same inside, where the center stack cascades down the center of the dashboard, the analog speedometer is flanked by color LCD screens, leather seats are standard, and the front seats are heated and cooled -- as standard. Other luxurious features include push-button start, remote start, a fourteen-speaker THX II-certified sound system, a heated steering wheel, and adaptive cruise control.

The only powertrain choice is a smooth 3.5-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic transmission. With 305 hp on tap, acceleration is good whether buyers choose front- or all-wheel drive. Front-wheel-drive models return respectable fuel economy of 19/26 mpg (city/highway; all-wheel drive drops those figures to an 17/23 mpg.

The 2014 Lincoln MKX drives well overall. Handling is about on par for similarly sized luxury crossovers, and steering response is excellent. The cabin is very quiet thanks to lots of insulation and special noise-reducing window glass. Our main complaints concern the in-car electronics. The MyLincoln Touch infotainment screen is fussy and frequently slow to respond to commands, although several software updates have been released to address this. In addition, the capacitive touch-sensitive "buttons" and "sliders" on the center stack often fail to detect a finger press. Simple buttons would be more reliable without dramatically affecting the Lincoln's visual style.

You'll like:

  • Quiet, well-appointed cabin
  • Decent fuel economy
  • Long list of equipment

You won't like:

  • Awkward touch-sensitive controls
  • Unremarkable to drive

Summary
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.
Consequences
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.
Remedy
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.
