Ride & Handling  - 2008 Lincoln MKX Review - Reviews - Lincoln MKX

As in its sister vehicle, the MKX's ride quality is a high point — here, a bit cushier still. This SUV illustrates what can be achieved in a car-based, or unibody, model that would be complicated or plain impossible in a truck-based one. Though there's some body roll in turns, the steering feels natural and the center of gravity is low, providing a grounded feeling and lessening the chance of rollover. This isn't a car, and it shouldn't be driven like one, but the advantages of a car platform are evident. The 41-foot turning diameter could be tighter, but otherwise I have few complaints.
