STYLE + TIMES: HANDS ON WITH THE 2016 LINCOLN MKX

One of the things that I’ve learned in life is that rarely do our plans ever come off perfectly and if we are not prepared for opportunities when they come our way, there’s no guarantee that they’ll come again.

That said, we received a call out of the blue by the good folks at Lincoln Motor Co. inviting us to be a part of a special event being held in Miami.  An intimate dinner with Chef Lorena Garcia in celebration of the new 2016 Lincoln MKX.

I promised myself  a long time ago when I started this blog that I would be responsible with this platform and use it to share my experiences and inspire others.  Sometimes it’s me who gets inspired and is a benefactor from these different experiences.

When we arrived in Miami, we were immediately welcomed by the Lincoln Motor Co. team at a beautiful home in Miami’s Design District.   We were given a tour of the space and quickly introduced to what was going to be our mode of transportation for the evening.

Just before taking the all new MKX out for a spin, the executives gave us a full rundown of the seemingly endless features of what is a technological work of art on wheels.

Following our hands on drive around Miami Beach, we arrived back at the Chef Lorena’s private kitchen where we were again hands on for an amazing cooking experience. Four courses were served, all hand made before our eyes. After further discussions with fellow bloggers and media, we all departed with keys to a new MKX for us to individually explore on our own.

The 2016 Lincoln MKX is an amazing automobile. Upon entry, the cabin just welcomes you. Everything that you can possibly want from a technology, safety and luxury perspective is at your fingertips. We were challenged to write about what spoke to us the most about the new MKX.

For me it’s the sound system.  Music is everything to me and being able to hear the music the way it was intended within an automobile environment was truly remarkable.

The 19 speaker Revel system is designed with point source architecture for precise imaging. There are three different sound modes that let you customize your listening experience.

We have been truly blessed to experience a lot of things with our platform and we pride ourselves in creating brand experiences.  There are times when a brand knocks it out of the park and we just get out of the way and let the experience speak to us in an organic way and that’s what Lincoln Motor Co. has accomplished. #TheFeelingStays, is more than just a tagline.  It truly is an experience that stays with you.
