Lincoln is taking “Quiet Luxury” to another level with the introduction of ingenious 360-degree camera technology in the all-new MKX crossover. This feature is a first-in-class for the medium premium utility segment. In addition to the 360-degree bird’s-eye view, the camera system offers a 180-degree split view, which is particularly helpful in assisting in difficult parking situations.
The available features and technologies have been orchestrated to provide a seamless experience. The front camera, for example, sits behind the Lincoln Star badge in the middle of the split-wing grille. When in Drive, Park or Neutral and the button is pushed, the Lincoln Star badge moves out about one inch and tilts up to deploy the available front camera.
The combination of front-camera deployment, and how the lens is cleaned via a built-in automatic washer, is an industry first. The 360-degree camera system – which shows up to seven feet all around the vehicle – looks out for objects and perspectives not easily seen, stitching images from the front, rear and both sides to create a composite view of the area directly surrounding the vehicle.
The 12-sensor ultrasonic system enables the full range of available parking-assist features: front, rear, side sensing; perpendicular and parallel parking; and park out. The camera system’s 180-degree split view can also be helpful in looking out in cross-traffic situations.
“While an amplified level of luxury is one of our main goals, safety is of paramount importance, which is why the addition of a 360-degree camera system in the MKX is ideal for Lincoln clientele,” said Alex Schaeffer, head of Lincoln Middle East. “Being surrounded by such advanced technology will inevitably add a heightened sense of safety, instilling even greater confidence in the Lincoln MKX driving experience.”
Powered by the 2.7-litre twin-turbocharged GTDI V6, or the standard 3.7-litre V6 Ti-VCT, the all-new Lincoln MKX also comes with a line-up of innovative features like the state-of-the-art Revel audio system to complement the revolutionary 360 degree camera.
