It’s a mouthful, but the MyLincoln Touch with SYNC system, available in Lincoln’s luxury crossover, can be summed up simply: New tech for old drivers. Or more generously, cool stuff for the younger generation being courted by this once staid brand. Two small LCD screens flank the analog speedometer; they’re controlled via a pair of five-way directional pads on the steering wheel. The one on the left lets you flick through general trip information such as mileage and trip odometers; the one on the right gives you access to entertainment, phone, navigation, and climate settings. Then there’s the 8-inch touchscreen, which lets you do everything from browsing your music collection to getting traffic updates. In addition to tapping, you can do almost everything through voice commands; the MKX recognizes 10,000 of them.
