the 2015 Lincoln MKC will start at $33,995 while providing a healthy assortment of standard features. There are three trim levels; base Premiere, mid range Select and top trim Reserve. There are also free standing packages and options...

"embedded modem" --> like an internet modem? So you can connect to the internet while driving, or rather your passenger can. Very cool addition to the vehicle.

I feel like the Reserve package offers enough that it is worth it. What trim level are you guys thinking of going with?

I doubt the driver can control it when driving, there would need to be a bypass system in place from an aftermarket company to make it work.

well it is a small 4 pot, you dont really need a pickup truck like 20-25 gal. should be good for what 250-300 miles per tank?
Even more than that.
Since the MKC will come at a later time, likely it's engine might be slightly more fuel efficient and even better in power. Still will have to see real world stats.

They should have made the 2.3L standard on the reserve

would make the reserve package a better value
I agree, it should be standard without us having to pay over $1000 just to add it on. I guess they're trying to make money where ever they can

well not everyone who opts for the reserve is going to want the performance bump. I think this way it keeps shoppers happy. If they desire a performance gain it can be had.

Making the 2.3 standard on the reserve would actually hurt top trim sales IMO.

Fair enough. It's true, not everyone will care for performance. Some will just want whats enough for commuting and getting good gas mileage, others will want more out of an SUV like this.

well and especially because its supposed to be a luxury SUV not a performance monster. Beside the 2.0 is plenty powerful enough, I've handled one in the new Escape, seriously it leaves nothing lacking...

Not bad. Overall it seems good for most driving situations, even passing people on the highway shouldn't be an issue.

no issue at all its quite peppy and responsive. The Turbo is baseball sized so it spools instantly. I've never had so much in an SUV as i did when i flipped her into sport mode ;)
