"I've been driving a Lincoln since much sooner than anybody paid me to drive one . . . I didn't do it to be cool . . . I didn't do it to create an impression . . . I simply enjoyed it."
It's actual, says the Oscar champ worth some place around $75 million to $100 million. "Presently I have different autos, however I have driven a Lincoln and I now have a Lincoln in my carport," McConaughey told genuine Crypt Keeper Larry King. We take that to mean he once appropriated a Town Car as a major aspect of an on-set trick and his own colleague now has another, acquired ride.
Nobody is going to pay you to drive a ­Lincoln.

With the new MKX and the New York car exhibition Continental idea, Lincoln proposes to turn left while other people in the business veers right. America's other extravagance brand won't be tricked into Cadillac's difficult task against the game fixated Germans. Rather, the 98-year-old automaker needs to channel its past, when a Lincoln was stately and certain, and execution was just accidental to the smooth V-8 in the engine. Lincoln advertisers call this experience "calm extravagance," and we can affirm that it is much more relieving than the service station grade bathroom tissue of the same name.
Apparently unconcerned with the German marques, Lincoln has its sights on the Japanese, by and large, and the Lexus RX, particularly. That is evident in the showcasing, as well as in everything from the way the MKX drives to the way you communicate with it. Each new MKX wears versatile dampers, yet the stuns are just driver-flexible on the off chance that you include four-wheel drive for $2495. And still, at the end of the day, exchanging among solace, typical, and sport modes requires spelunking profound into the instrument-bunch menu where you dole out a suspension setting to the transmission's drive and game positions.

That is the wordy method for saying there is no fiddly rocker switch to unwind the ride as you drive closer to Detroit legitimate. In­stead, Lincoln trusts its clients set a favored mode and disregard the driver-selectable capacity through and through. Then again, more probable, purchasers will drive their MKX in whatever mode is basically when they take conveyance.
That is not as a matter of course an awful thing. The MKX spreads ground with a charming, controlled delicateness in typical mode. The suspension damps out development joints and breaks while the body loyally takes after the street. Exact, pleasantly weighted controlling with a strong feeling of on-focus helps the MKX feel littler and lighter than it is. By and large, the MKX typifies Lexus-like smoothness however with more prominent exactness. In the event that you get yourself torn between a BMW and a MKX, however, counsel the DSM-5 for the suitable conclusion.
A normally suctioned 3.7-liter V-6 comes standard. The $2000 EcoBoost redesign introduces a twin-turbocharged vermin of a motor that makes 335 strength and 380 pound-feet of torque from 2.7 liters. You can purchase the same equipment for $3030 less in a Ford Edge Sport, however the Lincoln premium includes programming that is useful for an extra 20 pull and 30 pound-feet. That is insufficient, in any case, to make up for its additional 200 pounds of richness. The MKX clears 60 mph in 6.0 seconds and walks past the quarter-mile mark in 14.5. The Edge fulfills the same undertakings in 5.6 and 14.2 seconds, individual
