I talked to Ford's global design chief, J Mays, about the MKC Concept during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It's an interesting time for Lincoln, which has just rebranded itself as The Lincoln Motor Company. Lincoln blew me and everyone else away at the Los Angeles show in November with a display of stunningly gorgeous classic Lincolns from the past, but there's no doubt Ford's luxury division is looking toward the future.Lincoln has announced plans to launch four all-new vehicles in the next four years, and this is one of them. This close-to-production MKC crossover concept is the smallest Lincoln ever; it's set to be Lincoln's entry into the small luxury utility-vehicle segment. On the stand at the Detroit Auto Show, the MKC looked far away up the luxury spectrum from the Ford Escape with which it shares a platform, as you can see in the video.
