Under the Hood
Every 2013 Lincoln MKX is equipped with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine that generates 305 horsepower. A 6-speed automatic transmission transfers the power to the front wheels (FWD) or, optionally, all four wheels (AWD).

Safety
Curve Control is a new standard feature for the 2013 MKX, added to the AdvanceTrac traction and stability control system. Curve Control helps drivers to retain vehicle control if they enter a turn going too fast.

In addition to Curve Control and AdvanceTrac, the MKX is equipped with numerous safety features, including 6 air bags, anti-lock brakes, MyKey programmable vehicle features, SOS Post Crash Alert, blind-spot side mirrors, rear park-assist sensors, and Sync with Operator Assist, including 9-1-1 emergency assistance.

Safety options include a reversing camera, rain-sensing wipers, and adaptive HID headlights that swivel to help the driver see around dark corners. A blind-spot monitoring system is available, and includes a cross-traffic alert system. MKX buyers can also select an adaptive cruise control system with Collision Warning and Brake Support, and trailer sway control is included in the optional Tow package.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the 2013 MKX a 4-star (out of 5) overall crash-test rating, with driver and front passenger protection in a frontal-impact collision rated 3 stars. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) calls the 2013 MKX a "Top Safety Pick."
