  • The 2017 Lincoln MKX delivers more horsepower and torque across both the 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 and the 2.7L GTDI V6 than the Lexus RX 350's 3.5L V6- which is also Lexus RX 350's only engine choice.
  • The 2017 Lincoln MKX has a lower starting price and numerous standard and extra-cost options not available at all on the 2017 Lexus RX 350.

2017 Lincoln MKX vs 2017 Cadillac XT5


  • The 2017 Lincoln MKX offers drivers a host of accident-avoidance technologies to keep you safe on the road. While Cadillac offers adaptive cruise control and automatic park assist in their Driver's Assist package, Lincoln MKX offers a Lane-Keeping System, adaptive cruise control, adaptive steering and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection in their Driver's Assistance Package.
  • Compared to the Cadillac XT5, Lincoln MKX is roomier across all categories: leg room, shoulder room, head room and hip room. Lincoln MKX also enables owners to carry significantly more cargo than the Cadillac XT5 with nearly 10% more cargo space behind the back seat, and over 23% more room than Cadillac XT5 when seats are folded down.
  • Lincoln MKX offers two powertrain choices, including a very powerful 2.7L GTDI V6 engine that delivers more torque and horsepower than the sole offering in Cadillac XT5.
2017 Lincoln MKX vs 2017 Infiniti QX70


  • Torque is what gets a vehicle moving, and the 2017 Lincoln MKX delivers. Both Lincoln MKX engines deliver more torque than the Infiniti QX70's 3.7L V6.
  • While Infiniti QX70 offers drivers an array of safety features, Infiniti owners must also opt for the Premium Package and Sport Package to have these features. This brings the cost of these three packages on the Infiniti QX70 to $11,200, while the Lincoln Driver's Assistance Package is available for $2,250 on Lincoln MKX Reserve models. That's over $9,000 in savings by choosing the Lincoln MKX.
  • If comfort for back-seat passengers is important to you, Lincoln MKX is the right choice for you. It boasts 5 inch more leg room than Infiniti QX70 and 50% more cargo carrying capacity than the QX70 with the rear-row seat in place.  
2017 Lincoln MKX vs 2016 BMW X5 35i


  • If you are looking for the best value for your money, the Lincoln MKX is the vehicle for you. The lowest-priced BMW X5 35i costs $17,310 more than the base-level Lincoln MKX.
  • Lincoln MKX also offers many features at a lower cost and features not offered at any price on the BMW X5 35i. Lincoln MKX equips a rear-view camera standard- additional cost on BMW, auto HID high-beams are over triple the price on BMW, and Lincoln offers available cooled front seats, inflatable rear safety belts and active noise control not offered on the BMW X5 35i.
  • Lincoln MKX delivers more horsepower and torque across both engine choices than BMW X5 35i's 3.0L Turbocharged V6. Not only does Lincoln outperform BMW in horsepower and torque, the handling of the Lincoln MKX can only be experienced by driving the vehicle. Another added benefit is that Lincoln MKX operates on regular gas, not premium like the BMW X5 35i, which will save you money over the life of your vehicle.
