that went on sale in late 2012. For decades, the brand languished for aging styling and technology, but Lincoln is attempting to remake itself back to the stylish, modern brand it was in the 60s.

“As a challenger luxury brand, entering this segment is a natural next step for us. MKC will do more than just compete – it will change the way people think about Lincoln,” said Jim Farley, head of Ford global marketing.

The MKC is a small crossover with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with 275hp and 300lb-ft of torque that shares a platform with the Ford EscapeEscape Gen.3Ford Escape Gen.3United States of America, 2012 > present10 versions

It comes standard with front-wheel drive and 18in wheels, and all-wheel drive with 19in wheels will be an option.

The front of the car uses the Lincoln wing motif that is inspired by the Lincoln Zephyr of the 30s. The headlights are made to look like a natural extension of the shape with LED running lights lower down. The rear features a tailgate that wraps around the side of the car and taillights that extend the entire width of the rear.

The interior is meant to be a modern, luxurious space. It accentuates openness with a push-button gearshift. The rest of the center console is completely open to make the car feel more airy. It also features a redesigned, three-spoke, multifunction steering wheel. Ford’s SYNC and touchscreen infotainment system comes standard and features an 8in touchscreen. The roof features a panoramic, all-glass sunroof that extends the length of the roof.

A smartphone app will allow owners to start, lock, unlock and find their car.

The MKC comes standard with lane-keeping assist, collision warning, parking assist for entering and exiting spots, driver alertness monitor, cross traffic alert and blind spot monitor. It can also tell you the fuel level, check tire pressure and check battery charge level

Lincoln has two more new cars scheduled to go on sale by 2016 as part of its complete redesign.
