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.

Revised for the 2011 model year, Lincoln's MKX luxury crossover received updated exterior styling, new technology features and a more powerful V-6 engine. The five-seat MKX competes against the Cadillac SRX and Lexus RX 350. New for 2013 The MKX can have newly available 22-inch polished aluminum wheels while the Sync entertainment and communication system adds Operator Assist and Wi-Fi capability.

Ford's entertainment and communication system, dubbed MyLincoln Touch in Lincoln models, is standard in the MKX. The system aims to make all of your communication and entertainment sources easy to control while driving. To do this, MyLincoln Touch features an 8-inch touch-screen in the middle of the dash, five-way steering-wheel controls, USB ports, an SD card slot and an instrument panel with a traditional analog speedometer flanked by two customizable LCD screens.
The system can be operated by voice commands and touch-sensitive controls. The touch controls for audio volume and ventilation fan speed each feature a horizontal plate, and you slide your finger left or right to lower or raise the volume/fan speed. Interior features include:
Real wood and aluminum trim is offered
Standard leather upholstery
