Here is some info that I received from one of the local Lincoln dealers:

"...the BL option is not going to available until after 1st of year (2015) and only in test markets la,Chicago,dallas nyc and Miami . these are the tentative locations.."

Unfortunately this puts me out of the running for a MKC as I really wanted the BL option. I'll still test drive one however just to see how it stacks up...

interesting.. thanks for sharing

the test drive should be able to tell you if this car is right for you and if it is worth waiting

Can't wait to see what the response of these will be like. I think it should be well accepted by those that like Lincoln. But they will need to promote it a bit, since this is a first from the brand

Agreed, but unfortunately I'm coming out of my lease and I can only extend it by 2 months. I ordered an Audi SQ5 last week once I was made aware of this. But again, I'll drive it as soon as one's available; and if it's really that good I can always cancel the order...

Why would they only make it available in select major cities? It seems to me you would have to order these custom anyway, which mean they would have to build your car specially and then ship it to you. Why would they not just be able to ship your BL Lincoln from the factory to wherever you are, even if that's not one of the cities you listed above?

I asked the same Q: and what this means is that in order for a dealer to sell BL options, they need to be a Lincoln BL dealer; the email above simply states what markets they are 1st introducing Lincoln LB dealerships to. So, it's not to say that they are only allowing BL Lincolns in these areas, just from a retail perspective. You can always call up one of these 1st dealerships and order one that way, and have to delivered to your house. Also, according to whom I spoke to they are only allowing a small percentage of Lincoln dealers to become a BL dealer.

We'll see if this info is actually correct as well...

Well, if you have to go with the SQ5, I don't think you'll suffer too much. ;) Seriously, the SQ5 is a pretty serious machine. Actually, any of the Q5's is pretty solid. My wife as a pretty well equipped 2.0T and she loves it. It's a b!itch to keep clean (brake dust), but aside from that it's been great. The quattro is pretty amazing in the snow. I'm considering the Q5 TDI myself.

Yes I really like it - drove it several times to be sure as it's not cheep. But, I got over 4K off and in turn the lease rate was very good. I did go look at the MKC at the Canadian Auto show and it was a little underwhelming; but it more had to do w/the color and the opinions it had on it. I was looking forward to seeing the red one w/the 20" rims that was making it rounds at the shows; but nada.

It's funny, I never was really interested in the Q5 before; never really moved me per-se', but w/the little touches the SQ5 has [with the 21" rims as well], it's amazing how it transforms for me. Absolutely love the drivetrain - one of the best out there in any class IMO.
