I take the review as a big positive. As much as journalist say they want Lincoln to turn things around, you know deep down they want headlines. And the headline "New Lincoln MKC can't ESCAPE it's Ford roots" would draw readers in. So while "Surprisingly not bad" isn't exactly a glowing endorsement, neither is it the brand bashing I expected. We'll see what the traditional car mags have to say. This was likely a big media event, so we should be getting first drive reviews from lots of sources over the next few days.
