The 2011 Lincoln MKX is the newest vehicle in the premium maker’s lineup to offer best-in-class horsepower and torque and the best fuel economy of any luxury crossover vehicle on the market.
The 2011 Lincoln MKX gets 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, with a combined fuel economy of 21 mpg, topping all competitors, including the Lexus RX350, Cadillac SRX and BMW X5, with not only horsepower but now fuel efficiency as well.
“The new 2011 MKX is the latest vehicle to deliver on Lincoln’s commitment of industry-leading performance and fuel efficiency,” said Derrick Kuzak, Ford’s group vice president, Global Product Development. “It offers no compromises with best-in-class fuel economy, horsepower and torque.”
The horsepower of the 2011 Lincoln MKX has increased to 305 – a 15 percent increase compared to the 2010 model – while torque has increased 12 percent to 280 lb.-ft.
“The Lincoln MKX doesn’t sacrifice power to receive its great fuel economy,” Kuzak said. “Our engineers were able to deliver an increase in power and torque in a fashion that reflects the luxurious driving experience that Lincoln is known for.”
And taking it one step further: Lincoln’s first-ever hybrid – the 2011 Lincoln MKS Hybrid – was recently named the most fuel-efficient luxury sedan in America, delivering 41 mpg in city driving and 36 mpg on the highway. This tops its nearest competitor, the Lexus HS 250h, by 6 mpg.
