The new 2015 Lincoln MKC hit it big in Texas by picking up top honors for both the Crossover Utility of Texas and the Luxury Crossover Vehicle of Texas. This rare sweep of both categories is big news for Lincoln.
The awards were given out by the Texas Auto Writers Association during its annual Truck Rodeo.
“We are delighted that the Texas Auto Writers Association recognized the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC as the best in two categories among an outstanding group of competitors,” said Kumar Galhotra, president of Lincoln. “In particular, to be named Crossover Utility Vehicle of Texas is a tremendous honor.”
The MKC has been on sale since this Spring and has been a solid offering for Lincoln.
“These awards for 2015 Lincoln MKC, following momentum from the all-new MKZ as the start of this latest chapter for Lincoln, demonstrate our plan is on the right track,” said Galhotra. “We’re encouraged that our latest vehicle has been recognized so soon after its debut at such an important and influential event. This great news, coupled with the recent arrival of the dramatically refreshed 2015 Lincoln Navigator, show Lincoln’s focus on delivering outstanding vehicles for the luxury customer.”
Lincoln is expected to deliver a total of four new vehicles by 2016 with the MKC being one of them.
