Exterior  - 2011 Lincoln MKX Review - Reviews - Lincoln MKX

It certainly wasn't the MKX's controversial looks that held me back. I like the large grille Lincoln has added to its vehicles; on larger models like the MKX, it almost looks natural.

One of my favorite design features on the previous-generation MKX (and the current MKT) is the single taillight stretching across the entire rear of the car. Unfortunately, it's been replaced on the 2011 MKX by two sad-looking taillights. Overall, though, it's a handsome SUV.

Eighteen-inch aluminum wheels are standard, but I expect most people will get one of the two option packages that include 20-inch wheels, like the ones on the tester I piloted. Surprisingly, the bigger wheels and chrome finish didn't look at all garish.
