If you're looking for a luxury crossover SUV, you may have stumbled across the 2019 Lincoln MKC and MKT. But which to choose? They're each a fantastic vehicle by their own right, but they have some significant differences. To help you in your search, here are a few of those differences.

Exterior Appeal

The 2019 Lincoln MKC is the smaller of the two SUVs, but its presence on the road is unforgettable. Its domed shape gives it an aerodynamic look, and its tough front fascia is sure to turn heads on the street. 

The 2019 Lincoln MKT is a juggernaut of luxury, but it's not so big that it will give you trouble in city streets. It's more elongated than the MKC and has a broader stance. The split grille runs across the front to give it a winged look. It's certainly the more dominating of the two.


If you're looking for the most powerful option, we can save you some time — the MKT is the way to go. It's equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that delivers an impressive 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The MKT's engine is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with all-wheel drive. Properly equipped, the MKT can handle a 4,500-pound towing capacity.

But if you don't need all that power, the MKC is still a very capable SUV. It has two engine options: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, or a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that ups it to 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque. The first engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and a front-wheel drivetrain. The second has all-wheel drive.

Interior Features

Due to the MKT's length — 206.6 inches versus the MKT's 179.2 — it can handle seven passengers. The MKC seats five. However, the MKC makes up for the difference in cargo space. It has 25.2 cubic feet of storage room, while the MKT has 17.9. If you have a smaller family, the MKC may be the SUV for you. If you have a larger group, you may need the third row the MKT offers.

Each of these SUVs offers an impressive array of convenience features, but deliver them in different ways. For the MKC, you have more trim level options, which means you get more standard features the higher you move up. The MKT has two trim levels, but you'll find the majority of the features already included in at the base level. The MKT Reserve adds 20-inch wheels and some driver-assisting technologies.

If you want it all, go with the MKT. If you want to pick and choose which features you want your SUV to have, explore the MKC's trim levels to find the perfect one for you.
