Usually a refresh comes 4 of 5 model years after introduction. But since MKC is based off the Escape and came out MY '15 a refresh would be due for MY '19 or '20 - Escape is due for a total redo for MY 2020 (I think) so the new grill may come then. But if sales trail-off its always possible a MKC refresh could come sooner.

Garage
To me, this rendering comes off as a Range Rover wannabe. Whatever it is, it is at least MKX size.

Exactly what I thought when I saw the side view. Looks like a stretched out Evoque with the sloping roof. I think its supposed to be longer than the MKX. I will see tomorrow when we hit the auto show.

Wow the grille is huge

Navigator had one of the biggest crowds around it at the NY auto show. We went last year and saw the continental and the new grille. This one on the NAV is BIG. Wow the interior was sweet. Not 100% on the blue interior but the wife loved it. Very soothing simple, non cluttered and sleek interior.

I'm not sure how they are going to work that grille into the C and Xs, I think it looks fine on the nav but I don't know about the other SUVs....
Can you guys imagine this on a C?

The concept is shorter than what's coming out and like mentioned here it's a little longer than the MKX. The production models will be longer, no gull wing, and no concert steps. Spoke with the reps and they decided to remove the lighted Lincoln symbols from the grille from both the continental and the nav. Boo. My wife and I loved that and hoped they would roll it out on the other lincolns.

Another shot of nav

it was a concept so you could not get too close and was spinning on a platform.

Looks pretty, but those doors would definitely not open in my garage!

I think Lincoln is smart by defining American Luxury as opposed to chasing the Europeans.
kmccart and 1984Poke like this.

Yeah, was thinking that too. But absolutely love the whole access to the cabin like that. With kids and even tailgating this would be awesome to have. They arent putting it into production though, what a tease.

Have to get the tesla!
