Today our focus is on the MKC’s masterful performance. It arrives with the option for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, exclusive to the MKC and capable of generating 275 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. Turbocharging, direct injection, and Lincoln’s twin-independent variable cam timing (TI-VCT) combine with the four-cylinder engine to form a trifecta of top-notch technology that will make the smaller, more efficient EcoBoost seem like a V-6.
To ensure that the MKC gives you the smoothest ride of any vehicle, Lincoln has perfected a continuously controlled damping system, standard to the all-wheel-drive version. CCD employs twelve sensors that read from forty-six different variables and make adjustments up to twenty times a second. With all four wheels independently reacting, bumpy roads are a thing of the past.
