Lincoln’s Revel Audio System Brings the Music Hall to Your Car

Lincoln has already raised the bar across the board this year in safety, tech, handling, and more, perfecting those basics of automotive engineering. However, Lincoln being Lincoln, one of the finest luxury automakers in the industry, they didn’t stop with the basics.

Lincoln’s Revel Audio System

2016 Lincoln MKX

In the 2016 MKX you’ll find Lincoln’s Revel Audio System, a powerful and soothing sound system that will make you feel like you’re swimming in the music. Lincoln’s Revel Audio System uses Quantum Logic Surround (QLS) sound technology, which lets you choose from multiple listening modes so you never miss a beat. In one cabin, you get 13 seamlessly designed, high-quality speakers or a stunning 19 in the specialized Revel Ultima.

Lincoln has an exclusive partnership with Revel, meaning you won’t find sound like this in any other brand. For the music lover and the sound freak, there is really no other option besides getting into a Lincoln. See the new MKX today here at Nick Nicholas Ford Lincoln in Crystal River, FL.

Craftsmanship in the 2016 Lincoln MKX Gets Even Better

Sometimes things may look good, but they aren’t well made. When this happens it can be really disappointing. However, you won’t have this experience in the Lincoln MKX. In fact, craftsmanship in the 2016 Lincoln MKX is getting even better with both visual and hidden updates.

According to Lincoln, MKX customers say overall quality is the number one reason for purchasing the luxury crossover.

Craftsmanship in the 2016 Lincoln MKX

“Craftsmanship sits between the worlds of engineering and design,” said Stacy Swank, Lincoln craftsmanship supervisor, in a statement. “Our role is to bring those worlds together to enhance the experience for the customer. We like to think that if you don’t notice what’s been done, then we’ve done our job.”

Some of the quality updates on the 2016 MKX include adding foam to the wrapped console side panels, door armrests, and steering wheel to make them softer for legs, arms, and hands; adding extra strength to the dead-pedal where a driver rests his or her left foot so it feels firmer; and replacing scuff materials with stainless steel on the door and tailgate for a more scratch resistant surface.

More noticeable updates include a redesigned center console and available high-quality leather on the seats and steering wheel.

The 2016 Lincoln MKX will be coming to Nick Nicholas Ford Lincoln later this year. Want to be the first in line for the new MKX? Then give us a call and we’ll let you know when it’s scheduled to arrive

Lincoln MKX Concept Makes American Debut

At last month’s Los Angeles Auto Show, Lincoln showed off the MKX Concept, which originally appeared at the Auto China Show earlier this year. This elegant, sophisticated SUV gives us an idea of what’s in store for a future Lincoln model.

The Lincoln MKX Concept will lead to a production model that will become the third of fourth new Lincoln models due out by 2016, and will see a global release. Lincoln says the concept was inspired by both airplanes and motorbikes to give it a feeling of power and agility.

“Great emphasis was put on the proportions of this concept vehicle,” said Andrea Di Buduo, exterior design manager of the Lincoln MKX Concept, in a statement. “It’s a very emotional, athletic design. Its horizontal lines and defined undercuts are gracefully integrated and very sophisticated, yet convey a powerful and dynamic presence.”

According to multiple customer research clinics held in both China and the United States, luxury customers want a midsize SUV with a sporty, yet elegant feel. To capture both of these desires, designers incorporated a front skid plate, heightened ground clearance, and added a sloping teardrop roofline to the Lincoln MKX Concept.

Here at Nick Nicholas Ford Lincoln, we are looking forward to seeing the production version of the MKX within the next year.

Lincoln Inspired by Airplanes for New MKX Concept

The sophisticated Lincoln MKX Concept bowed in at the Beijing Auto Show recently. When designing this new crossover concept, Lincoln looked to the skies and the ground. Lincoln says it drew inspiration “from airplanes and motorbikes” to give the MKX “feelings of power and agility.”

This beautiful crossover is a forerunner to a future production design that Lincoln says will be the third of four new vehicles due by 2016, the first two were the MKZ sedan and the 2015 MKC crossover. The MKX will fit in the lineup above the MKC.

It features a dramatic panoramic glass sunroof along with the new split Lincoln grille. The concept differentiates itself from the current MKX with fine accent lines and a more sculpted front end.

With this new design, Lincoln is set to take on the world, which is evident by its choice of venue—Beijing.

Here at Nick Nicholas Ford Lincoln, we love this concept design and hope the design stays largely the same as it moves into production.

Lincoln MKX

Despite having only 28 days, February proved to be a prosperous month for Ford’s iconic F-Series and for the Lincoln brand.

“Sales surged in the final week, providing us momentum after a slow start to the month,” said

John Felice, Ford vice president for U.S. marketing, sales and service. “Ford Fusion continued its strong retail sales performance in the West, outpacing the mid-size sedan segment. F-Series and Lincoln also continued to perform well.”

The F-Series has had a lock on America’s best-selling truck for the past 37 years, and America continues to recognize the brand’s ability to deliver capable trucks “Built Ford Tough.” Over 55,880 units were sold, the best February sales the F-Series has seen in eight years.

Likewise, Lincoln sales were impressive in February. The brand sold 36 percent more vehicles thanks, in large part, to the MKZ and MKX models. This is the fifth month in a row Lincoln has reported a sales increase, the fourth month with a double-digit rise.

We at Nick Nicholas Ford Lincoln love when we’re able to give our customers reports like this one. Let’s make March another great month!
