Are you planning a big road trip this summer, well you owe it yourself I’m sure, so let’s make sure you gear up properly! Whether you are taking your first adventure to Havasu falls at the Grand Canyon or staying in-state to visit the waves of sands at the Sand Dunes near Alamosa, Colorado, you are going to need the cargo space and the room to bring all of your friends along. That’s why we are suggesting you choose the 2017 Lincoln MKX.

The cargo space is above average, allowing for 37.2 cubic feet of anything you need to haul, and then some. When the rear seats are folded down, cargo space expands to 70 cubic feet. Leg room is in the MKX is a good 2.8 inches more than the MKC for a total space of 39.6 inches of leg space. Don’t be afraid to invite your taller friends along on your journey, because there are 39.2 inches if head space too.

The 2017 Lincoln MKX is perfect for those fun-family vacations or those friend-ventures. Aside from the fact that it seats five people comfortably, and a cargo space large enough for your teenage daughters 18 suitcases, and then some, the MKX is a recommended model for another reason, the price tag. If you are in the search for a practical vehicle, with lots of space, and something that is budget-friendly, the MKX is the luxury mid-size SUV for you.

The MKX can include all of the best features as well as upgraded trim levels while still remaining under $40K. Did we mention that $40K could include a 22-way contour massage option? Hmm… better ask your dealer about that one! And while you’re relaxing in the massage chairs, you’ll experience a quiet cabin space courtesy of the noise-canceling features provided by Lincoln. Outside noise while on the road, won’t be able to make it inside.

Then there is the technology. I mean, you could have conversations with your buddies during your time on the road, but if you’re in the car for 10+ hours, you may need a little space from them too. Not to worry, the Lincoln MKX is equipped with everything a passenger needs to stay entertained. The SYNC 3 infotainment is available as an option as well as Apple CarPlay or Android Auto syncing with 8-speaker Bose Surround-System – you may think you are in a movie theatre. Specifically, the XT5 offers 4G-LTE WiFi hot spot. Basically, there is enough tech in the car to keep your kids quiet for hours!

If you are worried about safety and reliability, there is no doubt you can feel confident driving this SUV down the road. When equipped with AWD, the Lincoln MKX gets a perfect five-star overall rating according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The standard features for the base model of the MKX include the rearview camera and rear parking sensors, but you can add blind spot detection and rear cross traffic alerts for the Select trim. Reliability comes above average in comparison to other vehicles getting a 3.5 out of five-star rating.

There is no doubt, that this could be the luxury vacation vehicle of your dreams if you play your cards right. Our recommendation is that you talk to your local dealer about the options and which MKX model works for you (the Black Label trim level – just saying).
