The Lincoln MKC Concept was showed earlier in the year in Detroit and it seems like it is almost ready for production now, from what can be seen from the latest spy pictures. This is not surprising as they did the same thing with the MKZ which they got from concept to production, very quickly.
The car shares a platform with the ford Escape and the daylight opening and roofline is also similar. The Lincoln is camouflaged in these shots but a few things can still be seen such as the split wing grille. It also seems like the taillights on the concept car will be kept on this model. It did look like the exhaust will be round outlets rather than the integrated ones on the concept car. The pictures do not reveal enough to know whether the rear liftgate, with its Audi like style, will be kept or not.
