ALEXANDRIA, Ky., June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As tri-state drivers catch first glimpses the 2015 Lincoln MKC, the vehicle they behold represents a historic effort on behalf of the classic automaker. Not only is MKC the first vehicle conceived completely inside the walls of a Lincoln Design Studio, but the all-new crossover is also the first to feature a drivetrain exclusively powered by an EcoBoost engine.
Lincoln's concept for the EcoBoost engine is concerned with increasing performance while simultaneously protecting a vehicle's fuel consumption. While power surges and fuel efficiency gains aren't typically witnessed as concurrent phenomena, Lincoln's innovative approach to engine design makes both a genuine possibility. By using lower displacement engines equipped with performance enhancers like direct fuel injection and a twin-scroll turbo, EcoBoost engines remain efficient while producing power that is on par with engines much larger in size.
The two EcoBoost options available underneath the hood of the 2015 Lincoln MKC demonstrate these engineering successes. Standardly equipped with a 2.0-liter version of Lincoln's EcoBoost, front-wheel drive models of the 2015 MKC deliver 240 horsepower, 270 foot-pounds of torque and 29 highway mpg. An all-wheel drive model is also available with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost that makes 285 horsepower and 305 foot-pounds of torque at 26 highway mpg.
