Bring on the MKC
Hello fellow MKC forum members. I've been watching the the development of the MKC since the gorgeous concept car was shown on the auto show circuit. Although I am not yet committed to purchasing an MKC, it is definitely near the top of the list. Our current daily drivers are a 2012 Q5 and 2013 X1. We love the Q5, and unless we start having mechanical issues we intend to keep it for a while. The X1 on the other hand has been a HUGE disappointment. I'm looking for something to replace the BMW by the end of the year. I have my preferred brands, but I tend to ignore badges and buy what suits my needs. I haven't purchased a domestic brand in nearly 14 years. The [not so] short list in no particular order: MKC, Grand Cherokee, 2015 Edge, 2015 Outback, Q5 TDI, XC60 and 2015 Murano. I'm also keeping an eye on the Lexus NX, but I find the new Lexus grille design to range from homely to downright offensive, so I'm not terribly optimistic that the NX will make the cut. The Cherokee was on the list, but there seem to be a lot of issues with that model in its first year, and most V6 owners seem to struggle to break the 20-mpg barrier.
