The Lincoln Company says that we can expect the newly 2017 Lincoln MKT probably this summer. This model already debuted, and what is certain is that we can anticipate the best MKT so far. It will come with a lot of redesigns in order to improve the appearance, and also in order to satisfy a lot of potential customers. As we know, the MKT model is a full-size SUV. Because of the bad sales in the past, the Company introduces a lot of new things in order to improve the total number of sales. We certainly think that they will succeed.
2017 Lincoln MKT – Appearance:
The appearance of the 2017 Lincoln MKT will be very attractive, and we can definitely notice some slight changes. First of all, at the first glance, it is notable the addition of more style. It looks very modern and luxury, which is certainly great. When it comes to some specific details, we can start from the front side of the vehicle. Up front, we can see slightly improved front grille that is just like as before divided into two parts. Also, between it, we can see a logo of the Company. This nicely designed grille is connected with the headlights. The headlights will use the updated LEDs in order to improve road vision at nights and in hard weather conditions. Also, the shape of the headlights is now a bit different, more precisely; it will be slimmer than before.
Under the grille, we can notice better bumper fitted with the larger air intakes as well as with the same fog lights. Compared to the previous model, the coming 2017 Lincoln MKT will use a lot of aluminum materials in the chassis construction which is very good for the total weight, more precisely; it will be reduced.
From the inside, everything is also just like from the outside, very elegant. We can expect improvements in the technology department, while the design of the cabin will remain pretty much the same as before. That means that the comfort of the cabin stays on the high level and that we can anticipate leather upholstery for all the seats. When the cabin is full, we can see seven passengers inside. All of them will have plenty of legroom. In order to improve entertainment in the cabin, they installed the newly infotainment system. Some of the standard interior features will include dual-zone climate control, AM/FM, 10 speakers, Integrated Roof Antenna, Digital Signal Processor, 8″ LCD capacitive touchscreen, Wireless Streaming, 3 LCD Monitors In The Front, and many others as well.
