The 2018 Lincoln MKX ranked #17 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lincoln MKX has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 24 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros

Light on the wallet for the class, heavy on features
Top-tier crash test scores

Cons
Below-average gas mileage

The 2018 Lincoln MKX has an athletic feel and a classy interior, but we wish that its most advanced safety tech was available at a lower price point.

Pros
Robust V-6 engines
Comfortable, upmarket interior
Good infotainment system
Rides and handles well
Conservatively handsome looks

Cons
Thirsty lineup lacks hybrid option
Frustrating push-button shifter
Advanced safety tech is costly
Is Lincoln a true luxury brand?

The MKX is unchanged for the 2018 model year.Overall, we recommend the MKX's Select trim level. It's just above the base Premiere trim level and adds a few creature comforts. More important, it's the key to getting desirable options packages such as the Climate package and the Select Plus package

PROS
Quiet interior with spacious rear seating
Comfortable ride quality
A lot of features for the money
Strong turbocharged V6 engine option

CONS
Interior quality isn't as high as that of many European rivals
Thick roof pillars and a small rear window impair rear visibility

You don't have to buy a three-row crossover just to get a roomy interior. Take the 2017 Ford Edge, for instance. It'll fit your family of five with room to spare and still fit into your garage with ease. It also boasts the latest technology, a smooth ride and a wide range of engines.
The 2017 Ford Edge is essentially unchanged from last year.

Pros
Ride quality is smoother than many of its competitors
Plenty of space for passengers and luggage
Fuel-efficient and performance-oriented engines
Many available tech and luxury features.

Cons
Base engine may be too sluggish for some drivers
Transmission is occasionally slow to react.

The 2017 Ford Edge skips third-row seats for better road manners, but it could stand a round of comfort and safety upgrades.
Middle children don't always have it so rough. The Ford Edge was nothing a decade ago--it literally didn't exist until 2007. In just 10 years, it's become one of Ford's big hits, splitting the crossover lineup down the middle and giving well-heeled shoppers a way to spend almost fifty grand on a Ford that doesn't have a payload rating.

Pros
Precise steering
Focused Sport model
Nicely detailed cabin
Improved EcoBoost engine lineup

Cons
No third-row seat
Flat seat cushions
Real-world mpg concerns

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2017 Ford Edge ranks 6 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Ford Edge ranks near the top of our midsize SUV class because it has ample cabin room, high safety scores, and multiple powertrains that enable you to choose the model that best meets your needs.

Pros
Sedanlike ride and handling
Fuel-efficient base engine
Strong engine lineup

Cons
Some hard plastics detract from cabin appearance
