Production hasn't started yet (that will be the 'Job1-date' mentioned in the first post - currently scheduled for April 27th) - only the order-banks have opened.

 

The 'build your own'-website is often updated very late. However, I'm still curious why we STILL didn't get the order-guide. THAT, IMO, is overdue.

 

It can be a little confusion - the order banks have opened to place an order, but the order guide isn't online just yet.  The Edge started production a few weeks ago so once that ramps up, we'll see the MKX production start too.

The order guides are not online yet, however my local dealers are making them available for emailing or personal inspection. As with the Mustang & F150 releases, I would expect some dealer to covertly post an order guide at any time.

We have some of the 2016 Lincoln order guides, just not the MKX yet.

I received a 2016 MKX order guide (11 pages dated 02/09/15) at my local dealer today. Unfortunately, it is illegible after a couple of hours of highlighting and felt tip emissions.

In many respects the OG is worthless without accompanying pricing and availability of a build website. Until those are available, a purchase is on hold. The dealer confirmed a Job 1 date of April 27 with delivery to dealers estimated at circa early July.

The 8 exterior color offerings are listed on page 9 of the Order Guide (Order Codes BK, G1, H6, H9, LC, RR, UG, & UX)...online color samples don't fairly represent actual colors satisfactorily. There will also be 6 all new colors unique to the Black Label trim line....Chroma Elite (A2), Confidential White (PV), Chroma Quartz (UF), Crystal Silver (W7), Black Tie (XE) & Chroma Couture (ZX). For now, good luck finding a lead on those actual colors.

I have little paint expertise, but from what I can recall the chroma/chromatic paints are formulated (with e.g. cadmium and other elements) to provide higher intensity/color saturation. Think of flat grey primer at the low intensity end vs the bright yellow in a sunrise painting at the high intensity end. I have no idea what $$ premium Lincoln will charge for such paint on the Black Label optioned MKXs, but I'll pass.

I'll pass on that paint as well - they are charging $1,750 for it.

And, in addition to the initial premium, the added cost of repair to any painted panel would likely be excessive since spot blending is not an option. I would live with constant anxiety when parking in areas where I have no choice in selecting a remote parking space, e. g. recreational events.

I placed my Pre-order for the 2016 MKX - it will be a new color - Bronze Firemist Metalic -(extra cost) - Reserve model, Lux package which includes the 19 speaker Revel

radio system, and also the LED adaptive Headlights  - (cant order them separately, has to be in the LUX Package) - also Echoboost 2.7 engine,  22 way front seat - Front Seats are Heated and cooled -  rear seats heat only.  Roof Rails (for appearance only) and the Climate Package which will include the heated Steering Wheel.  BLIS system is included some where in the packages too.  Got a great deal from my Dealer - IRWIN LINCOLN - Freehold NJ - great dealer, family business long time in business too, and quick to give you the best price - no haggling  ! if you want one - call them, you will not be disappointed.   Expect late June or early July -  here are some photos

of it that were posted on line -

Phil...congrats on your purchase. Regarding pricing, I've noted in discussions with my local dealers that pricing remains rather speculative, i.e. with both the 02/09/15 and 03/01/15 Order Guides in current circulation and with standard equipment, packages, and options differing between the two OGs, pricing appears to be in flux. For example, the power liftgate listed as standard equipment in the 02/09 Select model has been removed and moved to being standard on the Reserve model in the 03/01 OG. There are several other adjustments between the two OGs that influence pricing between the trim lines. As the many decades of custom ordering new vehicles has instructed me, pre-ordering amounts to writing a blank check to the dealer. But, to many (or perhaps most) early purchasers, price is really irrelevant. Others would rather wait for the pricing dust to settle, see what incentives are offered, and have a firm fix on what manner of vehicle is being produced and delivered.

I don't know when job 2 will be - but based on what I heard, SYNC 3 won't be out in the beginning.

I wend to Ford WHQ here in Dearborn and they had a lot of 2013 Ford Edge models, but not a single MKX.

Is there any confirmation from Oakville that April 27 is the Job 1 date for the 2016 MKX?

I noted today that the ARI website lists May 11, 2015 as the production start-up date for the MKX.

 

On the 2015 F-150 forum there were several assembly line workers and vendors who kept the forum well informed about production schedules. No such luck here, I guess.

An article in the Detroit Free Press dated in late February mentioned that several hundred new robots (in addition to 1,000 existing) were installed and 400 additional workers hired to begin test assembly of the MKX, but speculated that Job 1 production would not start until after the summer vacation break.
