Road Test – 2016 Lincoln MKX

Road Test: 2016 Lincoln MKX, Iain Shankland, Road-Test.orgEvery now and then there’s a mix-up when I go to pick up my test vehicle. It happens rarely, but sometimes I go to get one vehicle, but end up with a completely different one. Such was the case with the Lincoln MKX.
