2018 Lincoln MKX vs. 2018 Ford Edge

When it comes to seeking out a midsize SUV with seating for up to five, you have no shortage of options. Perhaps you've been considering the 2018 Ford Edge, which is considered one of the best mainstream midsize SUVs on the market. But if you want to elevate your choice, you can move up to the next level with the 2018 Lincoln MKX. What difference does luxury make? As it turns out, quite a lot.

Powertrain and performance

The 2018 Lincoln MKX has as much to offer under the hood as it does with its exceptional styling and sophistication. Its standard 3.6-liter Ti-VCT V6 puts out 303 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque, delivering balanced yet powerful performance that you feel every time you get behind the wheel. That's significantly more than what you'll get with the Ford Edge and its standard twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost®, which puts out 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.

Both the MKX and Edge are available with a mighty 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 twin-turbo, but the advantage still goes to Lincoln. The twin-turbo V6 offered with the Edge Sport cranks out 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. The twin-turbo V6 available for the MKX ramps output up to 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque, making it the more powerful performer across the board. The numbers don't lie - the MKX clearly has the edge over the Edge.


Lincoln never misses the mark with its spacious, modern, and classy interiors. In addition to its clean layout and thoughtful implementation of high-quality materials throughout, the 2018 Lincoln MKX offers standard Comfort power seats with lumbar support and memory settings for up to three drivers to keep you feeling alert on long drives. Available Ultra-Comfort seats with active motion offer massage functionality to help keep you feeling great no matter how long you've been at the wheel, and available Bridge of Weir Deepsoft™ leather-trimmed seating surfaces will have you feeling more confident.

There's simply no comparing the feeling of being at the wheel of a well-made luxury vehicle. To experience that difference for yourself, stop into Mountaineer Lincoln and take the 2018 Lincoln MKX for a test drive. You're going to like the way it feels - we're quite positive.
