Does anyone know if Lincoln is going to put actual fog lights back on the MKX. I have a 2015 where the fog lights actually add additional light on the road. My lease is up this year and don't want the DRL's where the fog lights used to be. I want traditional fog lights so I can add more light to the road.

From what I've heard, there are no plans to start putting them back on the MKX's.   I wish they still used cornering lamps on vehicles.  They sure did light up the road when you were turning.

You might be surprised to learn that running fogs all the time dont actually help you see better. (Accoring to Daniel Stern's Lighting page on fog lighting. And he's definitely one of the best on the subject).

Anyway the light from fogs is directed straight ahead (unlike headlights which are aimed away from oncoming drivers) and causes unwanted glare to oncoming cars.

Turning lamps were the best,  Had them back when I had my '93 Taurus SHO.

Are you taking about the headlight turning when you go into a curve?

No those are called "adaptive" headlamps although I would argue they work much better.   They're talking about separate lamps on the corner of the vehicle.

Our 2012 MKX has the fog lights. I had them upgraded to a full Phillips HID system. Their ballasts are wondefully tiny. They work great at night on rural roads. Using them in city driving is a waste. Agree with ENIGMA-2. Neat article. Thanks. Combined with our adaptive headlights it's a wonderful system for night time back country driving clarity. Really neat on a snowy night.

Can you post a link to the Phillips HID system you used?

Just purchased a 2013 MKX and has the fog lights.

Are these the bulbs you installed:

These are the ones Philips shows for compatibility. Would like to know if they actually do provide good light output. I installed some H11 LED bulbs from Dan over at Drive Bright but ended up returning them because the light output was not great.
