Lincoln Motor Company unveiled the MKX Concept at Auto China 2014
The Lincoln MKX Concept hints at a global SUV that will become the third of four all-new Lincoln vehicles due by 2016. It is designed to capture the attention of consumers worldwide. The unveiling in Beijing marked the first time Lincoln has stepped beyond U.S. borders to reveal a concept vehicle.
The MKX Concept includes elements such as a separated front skid plate, heightened ground clearance and reinforced wheel arches. The floating aluminum body-side rocker molding is engraved with the Lincoln logo. This execution communicates adaptability to different road conditions, combined with crafted execution and attention to detail.
Defined by an aerodynamic, sloping teardrop roofline, the Lincoln MKX Concept’s modern silhouette lends to its sporty personality, which is highlighted by wide shoulders flanking its recessed rear windows to heighten the design. Dynamic side undercuts, a high beltline and 21-inch machined aluminum wheels further enhance the well-proportioned design.
The roof over the rear was lowered to give the vehicle a sleeker shape. Highlighted by a panoramic glass surface that lets natural light fill the cabin and integrated roof racks, the floating rear spoiler houses the center high-mounted stop light and hides the antenna.
The Lincoln MKX Concept offers a new interpretation of Lincoln’s signature full-width tail lamps.
