I’ve got the break-up blues now that my whirlwind, two-week love affair with the new 2016 Lincoln MKC is over. There was no courting phase, no get-to-know-you stage before jumping blindly into this dangerously sexy relationship. Don’t judge a book by its cover because beauty is in the eye of the driver when it comes to the new Lincoln MKC. From the exterior it is a standard deluxe SUV-utility but once you get up close and personal you realize this knockout is a keeper.
Our affair lasted just long enough to take in every moment of the Whistler Cornucopia 2015 celebration. Cruising the Sea to Sky Highway between Vancouver and Whistler twice in two weeks, the drive was just as glorious and smooth as Matthew McConaughey swears it is. Horsepower and torque are awesome but it is the way this magnificent machine handles BC mountain roads and outdoor adventures plus a few killer cool features that really turn me on. Nothing says sumptuous feature like a leather-heated steering wheel. The way it caresses my chilly hands after a fall hike in the rain had me hooked at hello. Not having to consistently flip high beams on and off when driving the Sea to Sky Highway at night or in bad weather, the Blind Spot information system and collision warning all added to my sense of security.
The Lincoln MKC has no shortage of sparkly surprises. One in particular that took my breath away is the 12 square foot Vista Roof® which invites nature along for the ride. That’s what I mean about luxury meets adventure.
Easy to navigate, hands free convenience, a 2.0 litre Eco-Boost and the 8 inch LED screen make this baby feel almost new age, next gen. This ride is pure bliss.
Possessive I am but I can’t keep this one all to myself. Test drive the Lincoln MKC and fall in love with luxury. We’re whip smacked, head over heals in love with this new 2016 adventure ride.
