Lincoln has officially unveiled the 2015 MKC at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Designed to help save the beleaguered brand, the MKC has a stylish exterior that closely echoes the MKC concept. As a result, the crossover has a bold front fascia with a "split-wing" grille that is flanked by HID headlights. Moving further back, we can see a sloping roofline, a tailgate-mounted spoiler and full-width LED taillights. The model also has metallic accents and 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels.

The cabin is elegantly equipped with leather upholstery, wood trim and a MyLincoln Touch infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen display. Customers can also order a panoramic Vista Roof, a premium audio system and Bridge of Weir leather upholstery.

Under the hood, two engines are available. The entry-level 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder develops 240 bhp (179 kW) and 270 lb-ft (365 Nm) of torque, while the new 2.3-liter EcoBoost produces approximately 275 bhp (205 kW) and 300 lb-ft (406 Nm) of torque. Both engines are connected to an automatic transmission which sends power to the front wheels. An all-wheel drive system is optional and includes a Continuously Controlled Damping system with three modes: sport, comfort and normal.

The 2015 Lincoln MKC will go on sale next summer and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
