    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.

    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...

      Land Rover has transformed their Defender off-road vehicle which went out of production in 2016 into a more luxurious, roomier, and much more high tech.  The new generation of Defender comes in 3-door and 5-door versions.  The first on offer will be the 110, a 5-door model with 5, 6, or 7, seats that will arrive in early 2020. Later that year will be the 3-door 90 short wheelbase model with 5 or 6 seats and a van version of the 90 will be on offer also. Following in 2021 will be the longer 130 version with a choice of 7 or 8 seats. While not all pricing has been released, the 110 version will start at $50,925 and will be the only version offered in the US for now. 
      Powering the Defender will be a choice of 296 hp 2.0-liter, JLR's new 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder with a mild hybrid system that packs 395 horsepower. Diesel power may come later, won't be available at launch. A plug-in hybrid version will also show up later in the production cycle. 
      JLR says the new Defender will leave you refreshed after a long drive but still pass through water up to 35.4 inches deep and tow 8,200 lbs.
      The new Defender is built on a heavily modified version of the D7u platform used on the Discovery, but that it is so heavily modified, it gets its own codename (D7x) and own assembly line. It also introduces a new entertainment system called Pivi Pro that is more user friendly and uses fewer inputs to perform common tasks. It is capable of taking over the air software updates with 14 different modules capable of taking updates remotely.

      Mercedes-Benz has debuted the third generation of plug-in hybrid GLC with a tongue twister of a name.  The Mercedes-Benx GLC 350e 4Matic EQ Power... yes, that's the whole model name...will have its formal debut at the Frankfurt International Auto Show this month. 
      The GLC 350e gets an increase in all-electric range to 28-30 miles on the NEDC rating, EPA rating is yet to be determined. Power comes from a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder rated for 208 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 258 lbs.-ft of torque at 1,200 - 4,000 rpm. Inside the 9-speed automatic is an electric motor that adds 121 horsepower and 325 lbs.-ft of torque for a total system output of 315 horsepower and 516 lbs.-ft of torque.  Acceleration to 60 is estimated at 5.6 seconds. 
      Level one charging (household plug) from 10% takes 7.75 hours to reach 100%. On a level two charger, that time drops to just 2.25 hours. The MBUX system can help drivers find a charging station by simply saying "Hey Mercedes, find charging stations nearby."

      Ford is preparing to launch a pair of mid-size crossover electric vehicles according to sources. One Ford and one Lincoln are code named CDX746 and CDX747 are similar in size to the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus and both will be 2023 models.  The vehicles were originally destined for Ford's plant in Cuautitlan, Mexico but have been moved to Flatrock Assembly in Michigan just south of Detroit.   Flatrock Assembly is where the Ford Mustang and Lincoln Continental are currently built. 
      These two EVs are slated for about 65,000 units annually and because of the move to Flatrock, essentially spell the end for the slow selling Lincoln Continental.... at least in the US.  It is possible that Lincoln could continue building the Continental in China and import it to the U.S., however tariff concerns which killed the Ford Focus Active from being imported from China could also filter over onto the Continental.

    • Today on the way home to the bus stop.from work, I saw this police car followed by a manufacture plate full size truck that had tubes all over Nd then I saw on the back a camera hanging with red light clearly recording. I look where the camera was pointed at and a standard size Yukon with no plate, but also a nose I had never seen before. Got my phone out in the rain to snap this pic, this refresh??? Yukon was followed by a current year yukon 2019 with manufacture plates and then a seattle motorcycle with lights on. Clearly recording something in the Emerald City.
    • Interesting story as the wages come out and how they average across the 3 Detroit companies with entry at 15 to 17 an hour and skilled, legacy and production making up to 36, 33 and 29 an hour. Average worker on the assembly line this year has made between 75 to 100,000 salary plus bonus for assembly line work.  I know nurses and engineers that do not make that. UAW is well paid and they are being greedy. Intersting how the stories are showing that the UAW has a $750 million war chest to handle strikes but felt it was important to increase this so took higher dues to bring it to $850 million for this GM strike which is to set the tone for strikes against Ford and FCA. Something stinks in the UAW Leadership.
    • Corporations need to be somewhat greedy to survive, especially when it's the UAW union we're talking about, they have always financially beat on the Big 3 (now Big 2 and FCA). Most of these union workers get somewhere in the vicinity of $35/hr., that's more than enough for what they do and GM is offering a 2% raise so it's not like they aren't trying to work something out. It's pretty clear that more of the greed leans toward the UAW top brass. My father was part of the Steel Workers Union back in the 70's and early 80's and he said unions are always very greedy and he would never be a part of one again and wasn't after '83.  GM paid out a pretty healthy profit sharing check to the tune of $10,750 to 46,500 hourly employees in Feb. 2019, that's a pretty fat check and just shy of $500M in profits that GM handed them. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/business/autos/general-motors/2019/02/06/gm-profit-sharing-checks-uaw-workers/2783459002/ There's a reason the president of the UAW just had his home raided by the FBI for corruption allegations. The last UAW president had a cottage built with UAW money, that's not possible without major corruption going on.
