2.3L EcoBoost-Powered Lincoln MKC Gets 18 MPG City

The Lincoln MKC outfitted with the top-of-the-range 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine will return 18 mpg city/26 mpg highway/21 mpg combined.

The entry-level model got an EPA-estimate of 20 mpg city, 29 mpg highway and 23 mpg on the combined cycle.

When running on 93-octane fuel, the FWD model equipped with the bigger engine is said to return 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined.

Thats not too bad, was hoping it would break the 30mpg mark, maybe in a future model year that will be possible.

My 2011 Explorer Limited with V-6 gets 19-20 mpg combined & it's 2x the size of the MKC. That's part of my dilemma.

Hi, I am new here and came looking for some ideas to increase fuel economy. I just topped tires to 45psi and am running at 23.1 hwy. Thinking maybe a cold air intake might help but is expensive considering the return on investment. May just wait to change tires to top mileage rated type. I have the 2.3 turbo.

Well you will be duplicating all the engineering expertise Ford can bring to bare taking in some compromises to maintain NVH (Noise Vibration and Harshness).


On flat Illinois highways under 70MPH my 2.3 will always get 25 to 27 MPG. Even at 70+ 24.. We did Chicago to Maryland in hot weather with the air cranking driving and back and never got under 24.

We just did a 150 mile round trip that was nearly all interstate and got just over 23 MPG. In town, I get anywhere from 15 to 17. The term Ecoboost is a bit of an oxymoron.

150 miles at what speed. Being from Nebraska, I'd say 23mpg at 80mph is about right. Easy to get 25+ at 75. so at 65 (highway mileage calculation speed btw) 26-27 is easily done.
Headwind / tailwind can have a 2-3mpg affect

The majority of the way I was going 75-78. There was some cross-wind.
