The MKC's most noticeable change for 2019 is its revised front fascia, with a new grille.
Lincoln offers the MKC with a 2.0-liter turbo engine and a choice of front- or all-wheel drive.
This MKC, however, has the optional 2.3-liter turbo engine, which mates exclusively to all-wheel drive.
The MKC's 2.3T engine is the same one found in the Ford Mustang, and here makes 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque.
The MKC shares its platform with the Ford Escape compact crossover.
All loaded up in Black Label trim, an MKC can set you back as much as $56,000.
Lesser trims have much more manageable price tags, with the base MKC coming in around $34,000.
High-intensity headlamps and LED running lights are also part of the new front-end design.
The new MKC is arriving in Lincoln showrooms as you read this.
