The Lincoln Motor Company, having announced its entry into China today, has shown the Lincoln MKX Concept at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show. The Lincoln MKX Concept previews a global SUV and is the third of four all-new Lincoln vehicles due by 2016.
The vehicle is inspired from airplanes and motorcycles, says Lincoln, to create an athletic and emotional design.
The concept's design elements include LED-accent lights, separated front skid plate, high ground clearance, bolstered wheel arches, sloping roofline, a high waistline, deep side undercuts, high roof racks and 21-inch aluminium wheels.
At the rear, the vehicle has been given full-width taillights. The interior and the powertrain have not been discussed, except for that it would be fitted with a panoramic glass surface for surplus light entry. A feature confirmed for the MKX is the 'Lincoln Experiences' which has approach detection and a smartphone application to interact with the vehicle, among other features.

The MKX Concept demonstrates the design direction for the third all-new vehicle from Lincoln, one that will capture the true essence of the brand - warm and inviting, beautifully styled, and with the promise of engaging technologies that appeal to a younger luxury consumer in a global market.
