In Luxury Crossover Combat, which Model Reigns Supreme: The 2016 Lincoln MKX or the Mercedes-Benz GLC? Nick Mayer Lincoln Investigates

Crossover SUVs are appealing to a wide range of drivers here in the Westlake and Elyria area--everyone from parents to young professionals can benefit from the blend of SUV space and capability with car-like maneuverability and fuel economy. But if you're a North Ridgeville based driver looking for a luxury crossover that is as powerful and stylish as it is capable and versatile, look no further than the new 2016 Lincoln MKX, available here at Nick Mayer Lincoln.

Another name that comes up frequently when shopping for a luxury crossover SUV is the Mercedes-Benz GLC. And while certainly a solid crossover offering, when pinned directly up against our very own Lincoln MKX, it's difficult to ignore the many ways in which the Lincoln variant asserts its dominance over its German rival. Check out the specs below, then swing by our Lincoln dealership serving the greater Lakewood and Cleveland area, and allow us to walk you through the entirety of the new Lincoln lineup.

2016 Lincoln MKX vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC

  • The engine that comes standard on the Lincoln MKX is a six-cylinder, which cranks out an impressible 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque; the Mercedes-Benz GLC, on the other hand, with its standard four-cylinder, maxes out at 241 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • With the 2016 Lincoln MKX, drivers have the freedom to tow up to 2000 pounds; no amount of towing whatsoever is recommended if your car of choice is the Mercedes-Benz GLC.
  • Not only does the Lincoln nameplate come with a more reasonable price point, but the automaker offers a lengthier powertrain warranty than that which you'll get with Mercedes-Benz, making the Lincoln MKX of even greater value.
  • Music fans will prefer the Lincoln MKX over the Mercedes-Benz GLE for two distinct reasons: first, satellite radio comes standard on the Lincoln variant whereas it is only optional on the GLE, and the 2016 Lincoln MKX has 10 speakers, while its rival has only six on board.
  • The Mercedes-Benz GLE has only 20.5 cubic feet of cargo volume, whereas the Lincoln MKX offers a far less restricting 37.2 cubic feet of cargo volume.
