The vehicle has sleek, fluid lines, with many subtle curves and edges, so the car seems steady, elegant and stable. In addition, the 2016 MKX kept the predecessor’s sunroof, which is always a plus to each model.

In addition, another possible option is a 2.7-liter V-6 engine that is installed in the new Ford F-150.
