We’ve been wowed with the 2015 Lincoln MKC up until now, however price and performance are going to have a lot to do with whether or not these crossovers will fly off whole lots when they go on sale next year. We’re still awaiting an examination drive, yet at the very least we now have a much better understanding of the MKC’s pricing framework.
