Effortless ride with world class safety feature
The Entirely new Lincoln MKX has advance semi-autonomous features which was also included in the first Lincoln implementation of technology.
This feature protects during frontal crashes: Pre-Collision Assist with the Pedestrian Detection, that is, if there are
no corrective action taken during the extreme situation and the system detects the collision is imminent, the brakes are automatically applied.
The standard electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) adjusts steering feel by matching the driver’s requested Lincoln Drive Control mode.
At lower speeds, EPAS provides additional boost for effortless manoeuvrability. At higher speeds, EPAS increases steering effort and feedback, giving the driver a more precise steering feel.
Together, EPAS and adaptive steering help provide an outstanding driving experience: EPAS reduces effort while adaptive steering reduces the amount the wheel needs to be turned. The new Auto Hold feature relieves the driver from having to press the brake pedal continuously to keep the vehicle
stationary in traffic. Auto Hold releases
the brakes when the accelerator pedal is pressed.
Available Lincoln Drive Control, a suite of ride-enhancing technologies that customise the driving experience and optimise
performance, orchestrates available continuously controlled damping, electric power-assisted steering and active noise control. Drivers can select among normal, sport and comfort modes.
