The Lincoln MKC is a five-seat compact premium crossover launched in 2013 that went on sale in June 2014 as a 2015 model. It shares a platform with the Ford Escape. Three basic trim levels are offered and a group of Black Label design themes developed specifically for each Lincoln model were offered a year later. Trim levels include Base Premier, Select, Reserve, and the MKC Black Label offers the “Center Stage, “Modern Heritage”, and “Indulgence” theme appearance packages. Redesigned in 2018, it came with some big changes to its exterior. In 2021, it will offer a new plug-in hybrid model.
