    Lincoln MKC with "StarShadow" Grille

    Hi everyone. It isn't perfect, but I created my vision of the MKC with the new grille debuted on the Continental. Again, this is a very rough chop, but I thought you might all like to see it.

    Haha I had the same thought. I'm sure if they adopt that face to the MKC and MKX it will get sharpened up a bit to be less Audi bubble-like. The smoothness works on Continental, but it could be crisper on the MKC.

    Not a bad start. The hood needs to extend longer, over the grill a bit. The grill itself is too high up on the front of the car, and the hood ends too abruptly, relative to the headlights.

    That is how you degrade a GMC Denali grill.

    I absolutely do not like that grille, but your chops look good.

    Thanks! Here's my (kinda sad, imho) attempt at maintaining the MKX headlights with the new grille.

    Massive improvement over the current model, especially if it's finished in black chrome.

    How about a Navigator, based on Jalopnik's Expedition chop?

    The MKX is by FAR the best looking with the new face.

    Wow, it looks much better on those vehicles than I thought it would!

    In actual implementation, it will be all about size and proportion.
