A quick glance makes it obvious the name is the newest part of this Lincoln. The body panels and rear fascia are nearly identical to today’s MKX, but with a Navigator-inspired front clip design bringing the former MKX into today’s Lincoln design language.
Following up on our earlier post about Lincoln’s cryptic tweet (showing eight seconds of pavement and two seconds of half a chrome wheel), internet sleuth Chris Doane Automotive has unearthed some photos which seem to show a redesigned 2019 MKX.
Lincoln is already experimenting with other services through various pilot programs, including at-home test drives that leave the car with the prospective buyer for as long as 48 hours. It will also offer a service that completes sales at the home of customers instead of at dealerships. Another pilot called Lincoln Personal Driver lets Lincoln owners in Miami and San Diego hire a driver to use their own vehicle to run errands.
The utility also comes with a host of driver-assist technology, including pre-collision warning and blind-spot monitoring. New for the 2019 model year is a feature called evasive steering, where the car will assist the driver by aggressively turning the wheel when the driver moves left or right to avoid a crash.
