Get Intimate with the 2007 Lincoln MKX

By Pamela Hewitt

Lincoln's rivals swarm the auto industry and to compete with them, the automaker has to set forth a powerful lineup. To do so, Lincoln launched its MKX crossover. According to enthusiasts who experience the drive feel and performance of MKX, the vehicle is significant to establish the credibility and brand equity of Lincoln.

Lincoln MKX was originally intended to replace Aviator, which was introduced in 2003. The latter was built exclusively at Ford's St. Louis Assembly plant in Hazelwood, Missouri. Unfortunately, its production ended after two years. Aviator Lincoln parts are inspired by Lincoln Navigator body parts.

Car enthusiasts are positive about the MKX auto parts. Initial impressions regarding the powertrain are positive. The 3.5-liter V6 engine of the car is complimented by a superb 6-speed automatic transmission that provides reasonable acceleration from a standstill, holding the lower gears to avoid untimely shifts. Previously, the aficionados requested that the acceleration of the car be increased significantly hence; Lincoln offered downshift from sixth to fourth or even third if necessary.

Mighty rivals of Lincoln MKX in the luxury crossover SUV segment are Cadillac SRX, BMW X3, Lexus RX, and Acura MDX. Lincoln MKX performance parts are specially designed to deliver better ergonomics, style, comfort and performance. The huge Vista Roof transforms into glass, the controls are made simple and easy to use moreover; the occupants of the car are expected to enjoy every bit of the drive.

The 2007 Lincoln MKX went on sale this month. It boasts its CD3 platform, which is shared with Mazda CX-7 and CX-9, Ford Edge, Ford Fusion, Mazda CX-7 and CX-9, Mazda6, Mercury Milan, and Lincoln Zephyr/MKZ. MKX use truck underpinnings like its predecessor Aviator.

Lincoln MKX, MKZ and Ford Edge use the 3.5 L Duratec 35 V6 engine of Ford. Said engine generates 265 horsepower (198 kW) and 250 ftlbf (339 Nm). It is mated to the new 6F 6-speed automatic transmission which was co-developed with General Motors.

Lincoln MKX is a dynamic crossover SUV that provides comfortable and controlled ride. It also absorbs imperfection without compromising the vehicle's stability. The overall impressions of the car enthusiasts after experiencing Lincoln MKX were very good. In fact, they schedule a full road test in the near future to relive the experience.
