Fuel Economy Ratings Released for 2015 Lincoln MKC

2.0 EcoBoost FWD Rated at 20 MPG City, 29 Highway, New 2.3L Rated 18/26

Jun 3, 2014
The 2015 Lincoln MKC is just the vehicle the brand needs right now to rack up some sales volume and pull out of its prolonged funk. With its sleek, elegant, almost Audi-like exterior styling and upscale interior accommodations, it certainly looks promising to bring a younger customer demographic into Lincoln showrooms. As is the case with most recent Ford Motor Company products, Lincoln went all-in on the EcoBoost strategy on the MKC, with the 2.0L EcoBoost the base engine and a new 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost serving as the upgrade powerplant.
The EPA has just released its official fuel economy figures for Lincoln's compact crossover. The figures range from competitive to mid-pack, depending on configuration. Naturally, the economy leader of the bunch is the front-wheel-drive MKC with the 2.0L EcoBoost, rated at 20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. This is slightly lower than a comparably-equipped Escape, which for 2014, was rated at 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. The all-wheel-drive MKC with the 2.0L EcoBoost is rated at 19 city and 26 highway, slightly less than a comparable Escape's ratings of 21 city and 28 highway.
The MKC AWD with the 2.3L EcoBoost is rated at 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. For comparison, a 2014 Audi Q5 with the 2.0L turbo I-4 gets 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, and an Acura RDX also gets 20/28 with FWD and 19/27 with AWD. However, the MKC 2.3L is the power champ of the group with 285 hp and 305 lb-ft.
