Left Lane News got their hands on a Lincoln MKC Black Label and wrote a pretty substantial review on it. It's a bit lengthy for me to summarize here but I have clipped a few quotes out of it here and posted a link to it at the bottom of this post.

The MKC Black Label is a pure luxury package it is not a performance package. So engine options are the same as usual, but the options, features and materials are what is different.

Other features help to separate the Black Label from the also rans: Approach detection projects the Lincoln logo on to the ground as a form of puddle light, while an ambient glow illuminates the interior. Additionally, ours was equipped with the "foot access" rear hatch that opens and closes with the sweep of a foot under the rear bumper. Sweep it open, and after stashing your loot, sweep it closed once again.

Park Out Assist joins Active Park Assist to help with chores of getting in and out of tight spaces. Adaptive cruise control is also along and can speed up or slow down as far as a stop, depending on the traffic in front of you. An audible alarm sounds if the sensors anticipate an imminent shunt, while lane keep assist keeps you within the stripes if and when you become inattentive.
While the standard MKC is fairly zooty to start with, the Black Label ups the quotient and features an abundance of chrome to accent the deep Chroma Couture premium paint. What color is that, you ask? We wondered the same thing, but in reality it's very close to dark brown metallic.
Being a Black Label-spec model, Lincoln pulled out all the stops so the range-topping MKC features open pore wood trim as well as the Bridge of Weir Scottish leather, which has been polished and smoothed for a higher quality luster than skins found in other vehicles. Lincoln has been using that company as a leather supplier dating back to the 1950's. That's the upside. On the downside, we think the starter and gear selector buttons still appear rather cheap for a vehicle that aspires to luxury stature.

I wish the review put more emphasis on the Black Label features (run down the exclusive colors, wheels, and interior themes/materials) and ownership perks. How it separates itself from the other MKCs and the competition. It seemed to be mostly a review on the main trims and can be misleading that all MKC are priced that way.


I also noticed misinformation on the leather. Bridge of Weir Scottish leather is used on the standard trims where on the Black Label, it is Venetian leather made by Eagle Ottawa.

Very good point, and seeing how they missed those things, it can be said the reviewer missed the entire point.

We, buyers, are looking at this, we want to know what makes it different, why this over the regular MKC?
