Lincoln’s all-new MKX SUV, revealed in leaked images last week, has made its official debut at the Detroit Auto Show.

Previewed early in 2014 as a concept for the Beijing Auto Show, little about the new SUV’s look has changed in the move to production.

On the styling front, the final MKX’s standout change is in the bolder and more conventional headlight design, larger tail-lights and a softened look through the profile.

All of this brings the big new MKX in-line with the look of Lincoln’s small MKC SUV, launched in the US back in late 2013.

Power in the 2015 MKX will be provided primarily by a big 3.7 litre V6, developing 223kW and 379Nm of torque.

A smaller but more powerful EcoBoost engine will also be offered, in the form of a 246kW/501Nm twin-turbo 2.7 litre V6.

Features available with the MKX will include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping system, blind spot information system, cross-traffic alert, 360-degree camera, LED headlights, height-adjustable hands-free powered liftgate and 22-way adjustable front seats with active motion.

Electric power-assisted steering is standard, although the MKX will also be the first Lincoln to offer adaptive steering as an option.

Lincoln, as Ford’s premium brand, stands as a rival to the likes of GM's Cadillac, Toyota’s Lexus, Nissan’s Infiniti and Honda’s Acura, along with the establishment of BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Jaguar (the latter launching its own new SUV in the coming year).

As for the Australian market, Lincoln remains no closer to a local launch, thanks largely to a left-hand-drive-only production schedule.

That could change in the years ahead, however, with Ford now pouring around $6 billion into transforming the brand into a top-level premium range.
