Ford Motor Co. announced a $129 million investment in its Louisville Assembly Plant to support production of the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC.
The investment will create 300 new jobs.
MKC goes on sale in China, along with the MKZ sedan, when the Lincoln brand debuts there later this year.
“The all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC is performance-minded, luxuriously crafted and technologically savvy to meet the expectations of luxury buyers who want a more personal car-owning experience,” the automaker said in a statement.
Lincoln MKC comes with a powerful, efficient all-EcoBoost engine lineup, and targets the growing audience of luxury consumers.
