    Lincoln Unveils the 2020 Corsair in New York

      ... Latest entry to round out Lincoln's remade crossover lineup...

    At the New York International Auto Show today, Lincoln unveiled the 2020 Lincoln Corsair.  The Corsair is a small crossover that takes over for the MKC in Lincoln's lineup and joins the new Lincoln Aviator, Lincoln Nautilus, and Lincoln Navigator

    Lincoln says the Corsair has "Visually soothing design" and offers a sanctuary for drivers.  Effortless power comes standard.

    large.All-New-2020-Lincoln-Corsair_Interior-01_72-DPI.jpgCustomers can use their phone as a key to enter the cabin, and should their phone go dead, they can use the standard exterior keypad and then the interior touch screen to enter and start driving.  If the customers phone is lost or stolen, the digital key can easily be deleted.  The key saves a profile of up to 80 driver preferences to be automatically adjusted when a specific driver enters the vehicle. 

    Lincoln designers obsessed over interior quietness, providing things like a double wall dashboard to create extra space between the engine and driver.  This is further enhanced with standard Active Noise Cancellation.  Six unique symphonic chimes inform the driver of various status in and around the vehicle.  The chimes were recorded by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.  When you do want sound, there is a 14-speaker Revel sound system tuned specifically for the Corsair.

    Power for the Corsair comes in the form of either a 250 horsepower 2.0 Ecoboost with 275 lb-ft of torque, or a 2.3 liter Ecoboost with 280 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the wheels via a new 8-speed automatic to either the front or all wheels.

    Lincoln Co-Pilot360 is standard and comes with automatic emergency braking and Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Information System, a Lane-Keeping System, rear backup camera and auto high-beam lighting.  Co-Pilot360 Plus is an option that adds Adaptive cruise control, Evasive steer assist, Reverse brake assist, and Active Park Assist Plus. 

    The 2020 Lincoln Corsair will be built in Lincoln's Louisville Assembly Plant in Louisville, Kentucky, and will be arriving in dealerships this fall.

    Love the look of this externally especially as it has that Butch Station wagon vibe. Interior, just not a fan of the dash. This should sell well for them.

    Yeah, not feeling that at all but then again, it’s just another CUV to me. Even the interior is a let down after the Navigator and Aviator reveals.

    Looks decent, a lot more get up and go than the XT4.  Not sure about that center stack..

    I think the interior looks fantastic other than the HVAC pod shape that looks like it came off a last gen Escape.  I am not a fan of the push button shifter but that is on all Lincolns.  Really pretty looking interior though and definitely among the best of the 20 or so small SUVs out there.  

    Good power out of the engines too, I like that there are 2 engines and this should move well unless it is obese.

    It's odd that the power figures are tweaked form the current 2.3. 

    Current: 285/305

    New: 280/310

    More torque, more happy.

    This should be popular. Good work. Not a fan of the standing up tablet but that’s getting typical. 

    Great base engine specs. Cadillac doesn’t seem to get that. Should make this Lincoln zoom

    The nicest CUV in its class, easily.  Makes the Cadillac TX4, or whatever it's called, look like the cardboard box the Corsair was shipped in.  And take a look at those power figures... this is luxury car power.

    Just a matter of opinion from my end. Just not as enamored with it as you clearly. 

    I’m just speaking of the color. I love seeing colored leathers!

    The "chimes" recorded by the Detroit  Symphony Orchestra were completely aimed at people like me who love that type of stuff but think no one else does.

    It is a nice Nautical theme color contrast but not sure I would want it for years of driving. Would rather have a nice Moca interior. Much warmer.

    Interesting...I kind of like the blue, but don't care for the gray.  If it were all blue, that might be interesting.   I see they are doing the white trim like on the blue interior Navis...

    Motor Trend won't allow me to save images in a format that I can upload but scroll through the pictures and find the blue/teal leather interior.

    It's also a nice separation from Ford for those who don't really care about the cool-factor.

    Nice power figures, but I just can not get with the looks.. as I am not able to get with the looks of its two CUV/SUV higher ups. 237 hp/258 lb⋅ft from the XT4 in a 3660lb vehicle vs the Corsair at 280/310 is a nice advantage in power, but only depending on the weight of the Lincoln, which will most likely be about 100-150 lbs heavier. OBJECTIVELY SPEAKING.. the Blazer, for instance, proved that even with more HP,  the Flex ST wasn't exactly much faster in any dynamic.

    FWIW, I believe the 2.3 AWD MKC's are 4000-4100lbs. They're not too light. I think Ford said the Escape was losing something like 150-200lbs.

    Your welcome,

    I totally agree, I like the separation with the cool chimes. Cadillac should dump the GM traditional noise makers and have a luxury inspired sounds.

    Looks wise I think I like the sportier appearing Q3, XC40, XT4 over this.

    XC40 is a damn good looking vehicle. Volvo has been knocking everything out of the park looks-wise recently.

    XC40 looks very substantial in person, despite it's compact dimensions.  Seems like a solid, stylish product inside and out...

      Ford has announced the name of their upcoming Mustang inspired electric crossover.  It will be called the Mustang Mach E.  The official debut happens on November 17th, after which reservations for the car will be opened for customers wishing to make a deposit.  Deposits are $500 to hold your place in line and later, customization of the vehicle will open closer to delivery time. 
      We've seen from previews of the Mustang Mach E that it will be a rather swoopy crossover with a coupe like roofline. Current rumors put the estimated range at around 370 miles on the WTLP cycle, but EPA cycle will likely be lower. Ford also recently announced the creation of the FordPass Charging network, a way to take the worry out of range anxiety.  We expect we'll hear even more about FordPass Charging Network at the November 17th presentation.

      BMW has taken the wraps off the 2020 BMW 2-series Gran Coupe. It will come in two flavors, a 228 hp 228i Drive and a 301hp M235i xDrive.
      The 228i is powered by BMW's "B" modular engine family. It produces 228 horsepower from 5,000 rpm - 6,000 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque from 1,450 rpm to 4,500 rpm. The M235i increase that to 301 horsepower from 5,000 rpm - 6,250 rpm and 332 lb-ft of torque from 1,750 rpm - 4,500 rpm. The 235's engine gets larger diameter main bearings, new pistons connecting rods, a larger turbocharger, and a larger capacity cooling system. all of that gets you to 60 in 4.7 seconds, a 1.3 second improvement over the 6.0 seconds the base engine gets you.  Power is routed to all wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. Top speed for the 228 is an electronically limited 130 mph while the M235 can get to 155 when equipped with performance tires.
      Unlike the 2-series coupe, the Gran Coupe rides on a front-wheel drive platform shared with the X1, X2, and Mini Clubman and Countryman. 
      The xDrive system has an ARB (Actuator-Related Wheel Slip Limiter) and can split torque up to 50:50 front:rear.  On the M235i, the xDrive also includes a front limited slip differential. 
      The standard Active Driving Assistant includes safety features like Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation Function and Active Blind Spot Detection, and Daytime Pedestrian Protection. Also included is the Lane Departure Warning system with active lane return, which operates from 43 – 150mph. The standard Lane Change Warning system, which prompts the driver to guide the car back onto the correct lane at speeds above 12 mph by means of a visual warning and, if necessary, a steering input. The Active Driving Assistant’s other functions include rear collision preparation and cross traffic warning, which reduces the risk of a collision when reversing into roads or paths obstructed from the driver’s view.
      Production of the 2-series Gran Coupe begins in November.

      Volvo has unveiled the Volvo XC40 Recharge, a fully electric version of their compact XC40 SUV.  Recharge will be the brand name for all Volvo branded EVs going forward and Volvo plans to unveil a Recharge option every year for the next 5 years.  Eventually, all series will get a Recharge option. 
      The XC40 Recharge mostly looks like a standard XC40, except with a closed off front grille area. Where the engine would be is an additional "frunk" for more storage. Range is expected to be about 200 miles on a single charge, and the battery get get to 80% charge in 40 minutes on a fast-charger system.  Motor output is 402 horsepower. 
      The infotainment system is powered by Android and is fully integrated with Volvo On Call, the app that connects your phone to your vehicle. The app offers powertrain and range information at the tap of a screen. 
      Volvo is aiming to make 20 percent of their sales plug-in hybrid vehicles in 2020 and aims to be a completely climate neutral company by 2040.

    • GXP - the best iteration of the last Bonne.
    • That does not sound good.  I'm amazed at how so many people think modifications away from stock are appealing.  I find them pimpy.  Most cars look their best in purist form.  Just look at the last rendition of the Bonneville, starting in 2000.  The more letters got appended to the name, the tackier it got.  It took getting a base LE to avoid the much disliked grooved Pontiac cladding of that era.  The only problem was that the LE came with wheel covers ... and some type of alloy wheels and a console were necessary to make it credible as a full size sport sedan.  Ditto with the Olds Intrigue.  I was not a fan of the spoiler.  The upward bowed cant of the trunk lid and the crease at its edge were sufficient to make it look good. I found that  the Custom Cruiser started you out with cloth seats, so leather must have been an upgrade.  I also read that the 5.0 and the 5.7 were produced by Chevrolet. By the 1990s, divisional GM ownership of engines ceased to be; however, most who kept tabs on GM would have known that 305s were made by Chevy and 307s were made by Olds.   If I was in the market for this vehicle and my V8 wasn't made by Olds, I don't think I'd buy the vehicle.
    • I believe it is an all new dedicated platform, but we'll find out in a few days.
    • There is a weirdly modified Custom Cruiser of that era around here I see occasionally...black, with a padded top covering the back side windows, dark window tint, blue headlights, custom wheels and big tires, very loud exhaust, big hood scoop...
    • So is anything known about the platform yet?  Is this a new dedicated EV platform, or just the Edge or Fusion platform with EV components and new body & interior?
