The Acura RDX is No Match for the Might of the Lincoln MKC

When you're browsing the market for a fully effective and exciting luxury SUV, it's important to have the facts in front of you for an easier decision making process. While the Acura RDX has its handful of alluring features, the 2017 Lincoln MKC proves to outdo the RDX at what it does best - while also offering an enhanced standard of performance and opulence to propel the Lincoln brand back into contention for its classic luxury reputation. While the RDX strives for a smooth ride, the Lincoln MKC refuses to sacrifice practicality or quality for any one facet of its success. Let's dive further into what sets the Lincoln MKC apart from its Acura counterpart:

The Lincoln MKC vs the Acura RDX

  • The Lincoln MKC sets the tone of the conversation early with a more affordable starting price than the RDX. The Select and Reserve trim levels are both more reasonably priced than the Technology and Advance Packages offered by Acura, while offering very similar features and settings.
  • The 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine peaks at 240-horsepower, which is less than that of the RDX, but packs a more powerful performance overall thanks to its 270 pound-feet of torque - compared to the 252 pound-feet of torque in the Acura.
  • With its higher torque, the Lincoln MKC has a towing capacity of up to 2000 pounds - a noticeable difference from the 1500 pound capability of the RDX.
  • Thanks to a shorter wheelbase and overall length, drivers in a Lincoln MKC can experience a tighter turning radius for greater handling and easier parking than those in the RDX.
