2018 INFINITI QX60 VS. 2018 LINCOLN MKX | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The 2018 INFINITI QX60 and Lincoln MKX are crossover SUVs that provide a lot of features to those privileged enough to own them. With their seating capacity, handling, safety, and state of the art infotainment, they are heads and shoulders above other SUVs in their class. But which of the two is superior?

Design & Style

Both vehicles are extremely stylish, with elegant exteriors which will command attention. However, passengers seated in the rear of the INFINITI QX60 will enjoy greater space when compared to their Lincoln MKX counterparts. The front of the QX60 also has superior leg and headroom which makes it more adequate for taller drivers. It should also be noted that in addition to higher seating capacity, the INFINITI also has greater cargo space, which means you can store more luggage.

Technology & Safety

While the Lincoln MKX and INFINITI QX60 are tied when it comes to their frontal and side test crash rating, as each has a perfect five stars, the INFINITI has a lower overall score, at 4 stars versus 5 for the Lincoln. However, those who buy the INFINITI are going to get substantially more seating capacity, at 7 seats versus a paltry 5 for the Lincoln. Given the fact that many people buy these vehicles specifically for their seating arrangement, this will be a deciding factor for some.


Both of these SUVs utilize a V6 engine, which gives them torque which is similar. This means each will transmit about the same level of horsepower for their wheels. The QX60, however, is a bit wider in comparison to the Lincoln, but it has no problems with entering and exiting parking spaces. When towing capacity is factored into the equation, the QX60 has a definitive edge over the Lincoln, since it is able to pull bigger loads. Thanks to INFINITI for having sufficient horsepower to pull this off.

The Bottom Line

Both the INFINITI QX60 and Lincoln MKX are outstanding vehicles which excel in a number of areas. The INFINITI and MKX score well in terms of horsepower. In addition, the INFINITI has a substantially greater seating capacity. At the ends of the day, few customers purchase SUVs purely for performance; they buy them to accommodate their growing family and the seating space they require. Additionally, the INFINITI has greater mpg, both in cities and on highways, so when this is taken into consideration; it is easy to see why the INFINITI is the winner. Its performance combined with its seating space and overall design is simply too much for the Lincoln.
