FWIW there's a bit of silver trim on the low side of the front.

My only comment is... look at the size of that liftgate. It goes around the sides!

Sort of like the Audi Q5, huh?

Except it's not obvious if the tail lights of the Q5 stay or go with the liftgate, which is clearly the case with the MKC.

I looked at the mkc, but the only big diff between that and the loaded E was the 2.3L and couldn't justify the cost. Nice looking rig though. I'd love to know 2 things. Which trans the 2.3L uses (same as 2.0?) and how that power feels :D

I think the 2.3L gets paired with the 6F50. I don't believe the 6F35 (paired with the previous 3.0L and current 2.5L/1.6L/2.0L engines) is able to handle that much hp and torque.

2013 Taurus 2.0L EcoBoost/GTDI, 240hp and 270 ft-lb, got the 6F35.
2013 Taurus 3.5L Cyclone, 288 hp and 252 ft-lb, got the 6F50.
2013 Taurus 3.5L EcoBoost/GTDI, 365hp and 355 ft-lb, got the 6F55.

In the MKC, the 2.3L EcoBoost/GTDI is marked for 285hp and 305 ft-lb. In the next Explorer, it's rated for 270hp and 300 ft-lb.

We had one for Lincoln's two day drive and dinner event and came to the conclusion that we preferred our Escape. The Lincoln does not drive, ride, or handle as well and the 2.3 sucked fuel fairly prodigiously compared to our 2.0. We also did not like the seats as well as the leather ones on our Titanium... All in all, it seemed like more steps backward than forward for 10 grand more.
2013 Escape 2.0L FWD Ruby Red Titanium w/ every option except panorama roof; delivered 8/4/12; 27K miles.
2017 Volt Premier delivered 3/5/2016; 14,000 miles. Replaced a 2011 Leaf SL-e.

345hp in the RS!!! :D I hope.

With a tune and some parts the 2.0 can make up near 260-280hp at the wheels. The 6f50 can handle that added power though!
