Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview The MKX crossover has room for five and competes against models like the Acura MDX, Cadillac SRX and Lexus RX. It features standard V-6 power and is available with either front- or all-wheel drive. For 2010, the MKX is more fuel-efficient, and a new special edition debuts.

Front-wheel-drive models are now rated at 18/25 mpg city/highway — a 1-mpg improvement in both figures — and the all-wheel-drive MKX now gets 17/23 mpg, which is up 2 mpg in the city and 1 mpg on the highway.
