Auto China 2014: Lincoln MKX Concept previews a global SUV [w/video]

Lincoln Motor Company officially revealed the MKX Concept during the Auto China 2014 held in Beijing. Designed to get the attention of many customers around the world, this concept model acts as a preview to a global SUV that is slated to be the third of four models released by the brand by 2016. By unveiling such a model in Beijing, this marks the first time that the brand will be presenting a concept model outside of the U.S.

Having a design that is inspired by motorbikes and airplanes, this concept model is able to show feelings of agility and power. As such, it allows a peek into the future of this American luxury brand especially as it enters the Chinese market, a rapidly growing one. The main goal set for the Lincoln MKX Concept was to have a final execution that would be able to satisfy the world's luxury customers and also delight them at the same time.

To make this happen, the brand conducted various customer research clinics in the U.S. and China in order to get the needed feedback on the model's design. Indeed, an intensive study of luxury customers in China over the last few years has shown that the preference was for a premium medium utility vehicle to have sportiness and off-road capability.

2014 Lincoln MKX to have tree-based components

Lincoln has introduced tree-based components inside the 2014 Lincoln MKX crossover. The alternative to fiberglass, tree-based renewable components is a result of a three-year collaboration between The Lincoln Motor Company, Weyerhaeuser and Johnson Controls. Using tree-harvested natural fibers, Weyerhaeuser created Cellulose Reinforced Polypropylene, which is lighter and more eco-friendly than fiberglass.

Cellulose Reinforced Polypropylene will be introduced on the 2014 Lincoln MKX vehicles that will be built early next year. Cellulose Reinforced Polypropylene replaces the fiberglass material used in the floor console armrest substrate, which is a structural piece placed within the center console armrest. Pieces made from Cellulose Reinforced Polypropylene are around 6 percent lighter, and cuts dependence fiberglass parts, which are less-environmentally friendly.

The use of Cellulose Reinforced Polypropylene --  currently used in small components -- marks a technological innovation that could play a more influential role in the future, according to Ellen Lee, plastics research technical expert for Ford Motor Co.

Lincoln has been very busy in improving the appearance, quality, power, and efficiency of this brand's models. In fact, the EPA ratings of the 2011 Lincoln MKX indicate that it is the most efficient midsize crossover in its class.

In comparison with the Lexus RX350, BMW X5, or the Infiniti FX, the 2011 Lincoln MKX was determined to be 1-5 mpg better in both city and highway performance. In addition, it beats all but the 2010 SRX and 2010 RX350 in combined efficiency at 21 mpg (the comparison ends in a tie).

Based on the same basic underpinnings as the 2011 Ford Edge, the MKX derives its power from Ford's new 3.7-liter V-6 engine rated at 305hp and 280 pound-feet of torque.
