Lincoln has put a lot of emphasis on making their interiors some of the quietest on the road. Even before the upcoming $5 billion investment in Lincoln, the brand still claims to have some of the quietest interiors on the road.

Lincoln makes use of sound-absorbing interior trim panels as well as noise-reducing material in the pillars, trim panels and carpets. Lincoln cars also use acoustic and aero-designed mirrors which control the airflow across the side to lower cabin noise. These features also seal below the door diminish the cabin noises even further.

Highway driving is made quieter by acoustic-laminate windshield and front side glass. There are also specifically designed tires lowering road-induced low-frequency rumble.

But if they are low rolling resistance tires, its not going to do very well in the snow.

This is one of the reasons why i like lincoln, even their towncars were great, big v8, torquie and quite too.

I suppose this technology does make a lot of sense for the limo industry. It also is nice for luxury cars generally. I hate when you can feel every bump in the road and hear every little piece of gravel that makes up the asphalt. Maybe for a sports car, but not for a luxury sedan/CUV.

Not my 2015 MKC Select.On a new asphalt and gravel road this car has unbelievable aggravating road noise.It transmits into the passenger compartment from the tires. The tires are Michelin Latitude Tour HP 235/50 R18. I've been to the dealer numerous times and after each road test I hear that it's normal. I swear they are deaf.

I notice something like that too with my 2016 MKC Select. If the road doesn't have a smooth topcoat, it's noisy. I also get wind noise from the doors, sometimes I can adjust that flat door seal that sticks out and the noise will reduce. OP, I have the same interior, nice choice. :) I always have my suspension set on 'comfort'.
