I learned first hand what experiencing ‘quiet luxury’ means. I took a road trip to the Megaphone Conference with the fabulous Becky AKA The Java Mama in the super sleek and sexy Lincoln MKX.
Experiencing Quiet Luxury Around Town
Prior to our road trip, I snuck away for some alone time in the Lincoln MKX. If you follow me on Facebook you might recall my morning of being spoiled. I parked at a local grocery store, sipped on coffee while getting a chair massage in the Lincoln MKX. Don’t believe me? Watch for yourself. Every time I drove this vehicle, I felt comfortable and relaxed. The Lincoln MKX is definitely my favorite vehicle so far to review. It’s not super huge and bulky, but spacious enough to put a few car seats in the back and plenty of supplies in the back. The black leather interior and sporty ruby red exterior made the drive feel luxurious from the start. I feel like I was turning heads driving around town, but I knew it wasn’t me but rather the car!
My daughter’s favorite feature of the Lincoln MKX was the huge sunroof that extends to the back of the car for viewing pleasure.
Also, I was pleasantly surprised to find a Lincoln hologram shining near the doorstep at night onto my driveway.
It’s all in the details, people!
Experiencing Quiet Luxury On The Road
Now, let’s go back to our road trip travels. It’s true that the Lincoln MKX SUV did not disappoint in providing a ride for running errands and shuttling kids to school. But, would it pass the test with two extremely loud bloggers on a five-hour journey?
The answer is YES.
The smooth and quiet drive was perfect for a long road trip. We averaged about 19 miles per gallon of gas which isn’t too shabby. The large windows and sunroof made sightseeing a must. Have you seen the rolling hills of Arkansas? They are simply stunning!
A fun road trip would not be complete without a quality sound system to boost our streaming music.
I had never been to Fayetteville, Arkansas before so to have an easy to use Navigation system at our disposal was perfect. No arguing over directions when the dashboard illustrates your upcoming turn.
If you know Becky and me, you might realize that there really is no shortness of words between us which is why it was important that we could enjoy the ride without the distraction of an uncomfortable drive.
The Lincoln MKX has an advanced suite of sensors that constantly monitors the vehicle’s suspension, body movement, steering, and braking to adjust the suspension damping in milliseconds. Meaning we could put the car on cruise control and in the event that a car got too close, it would alert us or put on the brakes automatically.
I know that this vehicle was my favorite to review so far because I was sad to say goodbye. Perhaps we will meet again soon on another adventure. I will be there with open arms ready to get pampered all over again with the quiet luxury and massaging it provides.

The base price for the Lincoln MKX is approx. $47,000. The vehicle shown in this review has an MSRP of $61,000. Owning this vehicle would be an investment, but you do get what you pay for with the Lincoln crossover. There are so many innovative features that I wish I could list for you, but instead, I will direct you to a user-friendly brochure. My favorite features include the heated and cooled seats, a hands-free liftgate, and the reverse sensing system.
