Which of the two proves to be the better choice? Well, in the areas of price, power, value, efficiency, and cargo capacity, there is one clear winner: the 2016 Lincoln MKX.

2016 Lincoln MKX vs. 2016 BMW X5

  • Price: For many Westlake, OH based drivers, the steep price of the BMW X5 alone is enough to deter them from this automotive offering; a comparably equipped Lincoln MKX is priced at almost $20,000 less than its Bavarian-built counterpart.
  • Power: The standard engine on the Lincoln MKX achieves an impressive 335 horsepower at 5500 RPM and 380 lb-ft of torque; compare that to a horsepower rating of only 300 and only 300 lb-ft of torque produced by the standard X5 engine, and the Lincoln MKX continues to creep ahead of its competition.
  • Value: Often times, Elyria, OH drivers shy away from cars made by BMW because they're notoriously expensive to repair; BMW's powertrain warranty coverage also falls short compared to that offered by Lincoln, ending at only 50,000 miles or 48 months versus Lincoln's 70,000 mile, 72 month cap.
  • Efficiency: Both offerings are fairy efficient, particularly as far as SUVs go; the Lincoln MKX, however, ekes out one additional mile in combined fuel economy, making it the ever-so-slightly more efficient of the two.
  • Cargo Carrying Ability: Measuring in at 22.9 cargo volume, the BMW does not offer nearly the flexibility proffered by the Lincoln MKX, with its capacious 37.2 cubic feet of cargo volume.
