Greetings!

DW and I picked up a '17 MKC on Monday. It's a 2.3l AWD Reserve, Luxe over Espresso, with tech & climate packages and 20" wheels. We had special ordered a similar car (with tech&tow pkgs but no 20's or climate), but decided we couldn't wait the 6-8 weeks because the car the MKC is replacing died again. I hate the 20's and can't wait to get rid of them. Dealer claimed he could not swap them out because they were on the Monroney sticker (sounds like BS to me). Here are a couple of pics:

I would take your 20"s for summer wheels and use my current 20"s for winter. I like the black pockets over the 2016 version.

Love the colour combo,and those 20" rims.....gorgeous! I'm happy with my 20's and they are almost identical to yours, for winter I use a set of 18" alloys with good winter rubber.
Just a heads up cdp8 the all season tires are horrible in winter driving,I know, I tried them and I was skidding over snow and slush like I was trying to "drift" LOL.... Set of 18's with Michelin ice made a HUGE difference...Congratulations on a beautiful ride; and you're going to love the 2.3 especially in "sport Mode"..... drive it like U stole it!!!!!
Curious to know if Lincoln addressed the poor lighting in the cargo area for the previous years....mine's a '16 and the lighting back there is just pathetic!!! maybe a couple of interior pics would help us understand changes ( if any ) to the lights in the cargo area, thanks!

Love it! With the 20's too...beauty is in the eye of the beholder, of course, but I like those! That color has also always been a favorite of mine since they introduced it a couple years ago. Although, I've always thought it would look really perfect with the Hazelnut interior and I think Lincoln only offers that combo on the MKX and MKS, but not on the MKC. Too bad...

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! Three months in and my wife and I love the car.

Everyone comments positively on the wheels, so I have given in to peer pressure and decided to keep them for now. Though I am tempted to swap them for a day with the 18s from my neighbor's '16 Escape to see if there is any difference in ride quality.

The only issue so far is an occasional creak from the driver's seat when I exit. It's not from lack of grease on the rails (total silence when adjusting the seat), but I think from where the seat mounts to the car itself. At 6'4" 245lbs, I'm more surprised when seats/chairs/sofas don't groan in protest when I get in or out!

The end of Summer has been a scorcher here in SoCal so we really love the remote start and cooled seats.

No mods so far, though additional window tinting is under consideration.
