Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) has announced Lincoln as the official automotive partner for the upcoming GITEX Technology Week 2014. In this regard, the all-new Lincoln MKC is titled as the Official Smart Car of GITEX 2014.
This is the second consecutive year for Lincoln to become the official automotive partner of GITEX Technology Week. Last year’s automotive attraction was the second generation Lincoln MKZ premium sedan, which was newly launched at that time. This year, Lincoln will set up its stand in Hall 3, where Lincoln MKC will be exclusively showcased for the visitors.
The 2015 Lincoln MKC is the first ever premium crossover launched by the Lincoln Motor Company, a subsidiary of Ford. It was revealed last year at the North American International Auto Show as a concept car, and launched for sale in June this year.
The vehicle will be offered to Middle Eastern markets including Dubai in two engine options; these include 2.0 litre and 2.3 litre turbocharged inline four-cylinder engines having 240 and 285 horsepower output, respectively. Both the engines are equipped with EcoBoost technology, which delivers high power and torque with better fuel efficiency and low carbon emission. Moreover, this compact SUV features advance design, technology, safety, entertainment and luxury. It will soon be available for sale in the UAE at a starting price of AED 145,000.
