Lincoln MKX Concept's Dynamic LEDs Lighten Up its Way in Los Angeles
North American debut is also to be accounted for the Lincoln MKX Concept. In L.A. the luxury brand has shown the midsize premium utility vehicle that exudes balanced stance via the wide shoulders, sloping roofline and 21-inch wheels. Full LED headlamps with strips of dynamic LED signature lighting float within a redesigned Lincoln split-wing grille. MKX is only a concept vehicle now, but it is scheduled to become the third global Lincoln SUV in 2016.
From the pictures we can clearly conclude that the design of he model draws inspiration by airplanes and motorbikes. To go further into details, the MKX Concept features elements such as a separated front skid plate, heightened ground clearance and reinforced wheel arches. The floating aluminum body-side rocker molding features an engraved Lincoln logo.
The aerodynamics is inherent to the vehicle. Take a look at the sloping teardrop roofline, the wide shoulders flanking its recessed rear windows as well as the dynamic side undercuts and the high beltline. The 21-inch machined aluminum wheels further improve the well-proportioned design.
In addition, the roof over the rear was lowered and is highlighted by a panoramic glass surface. The floating rear spoiler houses the center high-mounted stop light and hides the antenna. An interpretation of Lincoln's signature full-width taillamps is also featured at the back.
The front end of this concept is accentuated by split-wing grille with horizontal lines which continue as strips of LED accent lights below each headlamp. The last thing to mention is Lincoln Experiences - a technology-driven range of features.
