2016 Lincoln MKX debuts on the Shanghai Auto Show in China

The new 2016 Lincoln MKX has been unveiled on the Shanghai Auto Show in China, which is on track of becoming Lincoln’s largest market worldwide. The 2016 Lincoln MKX features a new grille with horizontal bars, new headlights with LED strips, a new bumper, a new rear bumper, new taillights, and an updated interior.

The new horizontally styled grille makes the MKX look much ‘wider’ than the old grille with vertical bars. The 2016 Lincoln MKX will be launched on the Chinese market in October. The MKX is currently imported into China, but Ford has plans to build it in China in the future.

A much improved interior with an all-new center concole. Steering wheel looks a bit fuzzy though, especially around the lower rim.

    That car would do the lamest j turns in the world. Drive in reverse, swing the car around, press a button on the dashboard(?) and drive off. That would not be good television, especially if the buttons didn’t respond.
