Lincoln and Almana Motors today launched the MKX midsize luxury SUV in Qatar, where it took pride of place, alongside the MKZ saloon, on the Lincoln stand for the latest installment of the Qatar Motor Show.
Exuding “quiet luxury” – a luxury that is elegant, effortlessly powerful, and serene – Lincoln models continue to quietly exceed customers’ expectations, rather than being the loudest statement on the road. Lincoln’s presence at the Qatar show highlights the importance the marque places on the region, and by bringing the new MKX to the stand, it’s providing a distinct automotive experience by providing a new, unique and elegant level of experience to the market.
“We are focused on delivering distinct products that are engineered around the people inside them. Here in the Middle East, it’s important that we are part of a buyer’s consideration list, and we think our existing lineup, paired with our future products, gives us a compelling story to tell,” said Alex Schaeffer, head of Lincoln Middle East.
Lincoln MKX The exterior of the MKX luxury midsize SUV embodies elegance in motion, complemented by a dramatic design with a modern, contemporary silhouette and well-balanced proportions. The interior design blends functionality with fluid, flowing forms to inspire a sense of luxurious adventure. Powered by the 2.7-litre twin-turbocharged Ti-VCT EcoBoost V6, the MKX also comes with a line-up of innovative features including a revolutionary 360 degree camera and state-of-the-art Revel audio system.
The available front camera deploys from behind the Lincoln Star badging between the two grille surrounds. This thoughtful approach offers the convenience of a 360-degree “bird’s eye view” for the driver while maintaining the integrity of the Lincoln Star and the dramatic design of the exterior.
The camera system also offers a 180-degree split view, which can be helpful in looking out in cross-traffic situations. The 360-degree view shows up to 7 feet all around the vehicle. Lincoln MKZ Lincoln’s four-door MKZ saloon includes key standard equipment such as the 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine, intelligent access with push-button start, SYNC with MyLincoln Touch driver connect technology, and a visually and technically stunning available retractable panoramic roof that offers a 15.2-square foot glass panel and the largest rooftop opening available in the saloon class. Producing 277 lb.-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, Lincoln’s 3.7-litre fully aspirated V6 engine is also available on the MKZ. The new MKX and MKZ can be seen on the Lincoln stand located inside the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre during the Qatar Motor Show (January 28 to February 1, 2016).
