2018 Lincoln MKC Spied Refreshed: Hides Continental’s Grille

Lincoln decided to kill one more butterfly. No, we haven’t lost our minds, but Blue Oval’s luxury division is currently working on the updated 2018 Lincoln MKC and the popular crossover will replace its “butterfly” grille with a Continental-style grille. Still, that’s not the only thing that the carmaker plans to change here.

The mid-cycle refresh usually brings jut some cosmetic changes, and that will be the case with the 2018 MKC as well. Lincoln’s high-riding vehicle has been spotted with camouflaged front and rear ends, which suggests what’s going to be new. Like we said, the carmaker will try to make the SUV more handsome with Continental’s grille. Plus, the front end is getting a pair of new headlights possibly borrowed from the Navigator concept. The full-size SUV might also lend its ultra-stylish bumper as well. These details will make the 2018 Lincoln MKC really handsome, almost irresistible. Around back, the luxury crossover hides new taillights, yet we can’t figure out what’s the new shape. Everything else seems to be unchanged, but you can expect some additional exterior colors. Yes, we almost forget to mention that the vehicle sports a quartet of new wheels, which appears to be stolen from the Navigator.

Our photographers were not able to take a look inside of the 2018 Lincoln MKC, but we are sure that the manufacturer won’t forget to update the cab. On the other hand, they will definitely skip boosting crossover’s performance. More precisely, both 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost and the more potent 2.3-liter EcoBoost will stay untouched. That means you can expect from the base drivetrain to deliver 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, while the topper gets 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft. Of course, they will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The carmaker hasn’t provided any closer information about SUV’s arrival, but you can expect the updated 2018 Lincoln MKC either at this year’s Loa Angeles auto show, or early next year at 2018 NAIAS. The base price won’t change significantly, meaning it’s going to cost around $34K.
