Lincoln Motor Co. is updating its MKC small crossover for the 2017 model year with a few new standard features, the brand said Tuesday.

Pricing details have not been announced, but ordering for the 2017 MKC opens next month, a Lincoln spokesman said. The 2016 model year crossover started at $34,890.

The new 2017 model-year features include:

■Standard power liftgate

■Standard start-stop on the front-wheel-drive 2.0-liter EcoBoost; optional stop-start on the all-wheel-drive model

■Standard “auto hold,” a feature that relieves the driver from having to press the brake pedal continuously to keep the vehicle stationary

■Sync 3 with AppleCar Play and Android Auto

The crossover, which is made at Ford Motor Co.’s Louisville Assembly Plant, comes with either a 2-liter EcoBoost engine that gets up to 240 horsepower or a 2.3-liter EcoBoost that gets up to 285 horsepower.

Lincoln sold about 25,000 MKCs last year.
