Ford’s luxury Lincoln brand has unveiled its new MKC small SUV ahead of a possible debut at this month’s LA Auto Show.

The road-ready version is almost a carbon-copy of the MKC concept which first surfaced in January this year; even the alloy wheel design is similar.

Sticking with its plan to ‘reinvent’ Lincoln around one the fastest growing segments in the market, Ford’s Jim Farley said that the new small SUV would change the way people thought about Lincoln.

"Lincoln MKC is a perfect blend of inspired automotive design and dynamic driving performance in a segment that has grown in popularity in recent years," Mr Farley said.

"As a challenger luxury brand, entering this segment is a natural next step for us. MKC will do more than just compete; it will change the way people think about Lincoln."

The MKC introduces us to Ford’s all-new 2.3 litre four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, producing 205kW and 407Nm - although a 2.0 litre EcoBoost making 179kW and 366Nm will be standard.

While official fuel figures are yet to be released, they will no doubt be helped by Active Grille Shutters, which close at highway speeds to improve aerodynamic efficiency.

Lincoln says the MKC is the first small SUV to offer the fuel-saving feature and that the range will only be powered by EcoBoost engines.

Standard driveline fitment for the MKC will be front-wheel-drive and 18-inch wheels, while an all-wheel-drive system with 19-inch wheels is optional.

The MKC is the second new car for Lincoln in a plan to release four new luxury models before 2016; the first being the MKZ sedan.

Besides the possible appearance of the all-new 2.3 litre EcoBoost engine in a future Ford model (its destined for various future Mustang and Focus ST / RS models in overseas markets), we won’t be seeing the 2013 Lincoln MKC SUV in Australia in any official capacity.
