Lincoln has followed up the launch of last year's image-making MKZ sedan with a new compact SUV concept in Detroit this week.

Dubbed 'MKC', the new crossover is expected to make its production debut in the coming year, when it will take on offerings from the likes of BMW, Acura and Audi.

But, as confirmed with the MKZ, Ford is unlikely to bring its luxury brand to Australia, focusing instead on its native North American market.

“We are reinventing Lincoln by focusing on the largest and fastest-growing segments of the luxury market, while offering clients something different”, Lincoln's Jim Farley said.

“The just-introduced MKZ re-establishes Lincoln in the largest luxury segment and the MKC Concept highlights a key opportunity in the fastest-growing part of the luxury market.”

As with its new large sedan, Lincoln's MKC is fronted by a new wing-like grille - penned by Aussie Max Wolff - while introducing a more curvaceous body style than that worn by the angular MKZ.

The concept also showcases a new pillarless door style, although it remains to be seen if this will carry over into production.

There's also a panoramic glass roof and a clamshell tailgate, the latter designed to create a tall and wide opening for loading cargo.

The MKC shares its platform with the new Ford Kuga (due in Australia this year), but at 4550mm long and on a 2712mm wheelbase, it is slightly larger.

Australian buyers won't see the MKC in local showrooms, limiting their prestige compact SUV options to offerings like the BMW X1 and the Audi Q3.
