Silver Sandy

That's the name of the car in the Lincoln mobile app. Purchased June 2 at a Ford-Lincoln dealer in Fredericksburg, VA. Only one of two MCKs within many miles that had all the options I wanted. I really like the Silver Sand/white sands-espresso combination. If the dashboard indicator can be believed, I got 28.5 mpg on the return trip from Fredericksburg to Richmond, and commutes (which include some interstate travel) are averaging 25 mpg. No problem so far with Sirius reception. In an area along I-64 with several miles of trees, the Sirius in my Toyota would lose reception for several seconds probably 20 times or more. In this same area, the MKC lost reception 3 times for only a second. Very pleased with the car so far. I do have a couple of questions (engine vibration at idle and cooling ability of the the climate controlled seats) that I'll post in other sub-forums.

Cool! By the way, I also have a Ford Ranger XLT--a 1999. It's been very reliable. Spends most of its time in my garage now unless I need to move something large.

Build Date 11.03.14
Lease Return is Feb. '18 going to take time off from Lincoln, revisit when the Nautilus arrives.

Welcome to the forum. I wasn't so sure about the silver sand color, but it looks good in the pictures that you posted. have you seen many other MKCs in your area? I haven't seen many around Toronto at all.

Cheers!

We made a good color choice! You are correct. According to the 2016 order book, Silver Sand and 4 other colors are deleted, with 3 new colors added. The closest replacement is Luxe, which looks to me to be a little darker and more grayish than Silver Sand. Availability of the Hazelnut interior is limited to only 3 exterior colors: Black Velvet, White, and Ingot Silver.

Other than mine and the ones at the dealers I've visited, I've only seen one. It was a Ruby Red parked at a restaurant in Newport News back in March. So very few in Virginia, and it's not like I haven't been aware of and looking for them!
