Revel Premium Audio System to Debut in Next-Gen Lincoln MKX

Lincoln has just announced an exciting new 10-year partnership with Revel audio systems, which means the entire Lincoln lineup will eventually be available with the premium sound system, starting with the next-gen 2015 MKX.


While we don't know too much else about the new MKX, we now know plenty about the Revel audio system that owners will be able to access through the MyLincoln Touch system. Lincoln boasts that the premium audio systems will provide maximum sound quality in the cabin, as Revel systems are said to be designed to recreate a musical performance. The company, part of Harman International, has been making home audio equipment since 1996, and worked closely with Lincoln engineers to replicate the Revel home audio experience in Lincoln cars. Revel takes architecture into account when designing sound equipment for the home, and it will be no different in Lincoln-badged cars.Lincoln MKX And Revel Audio 3© Provided by MotorTrend Lincoln MKX And Revel Audio 3

“The Revel system for Lincoln was created for the unique interior environment of each Lincoln model,” said Phil Eyler, senior vice president and general manager, Harman global car audio in a release. “The system is tuned to create an immersive audio experience unlike any other on the road.”

Revel boasts its unique design ensures "every detail of a song reaches a Lincoln passenger’s ears at the exact same time and magnitude, for the purest, most authentic listening experience." Two types of Revel systems will be offered in the future lineup: premium Revel, and Revel Ultima. The premium Revel system will feature three different listening modes: Traditional Stereo, Audience, and On Stage, while Revel Ultima adds to that with Clari-Fi technology, which was designed to restore some of the quality lost in the recording and compression process. The next-gen MKX will offer the Revel Ultima system. Lincoln MKX And Revel Audio 1© Provided by MotorTrend Lincoln MKX And Revel Audio 1

Having Revel behind its name not only marks a firsts for Lincoln, but also the entire automotive sector, as Lincoln will be the only automotive brand to offer Revel systems in its cars. Lincoln believes that having a premium audio company as a partner will help differentiate it in the luxury market.
