    New York 2019: The 2020 Lincoln Corsair to Debut in NYC

      ... a bit of a teaser ahead of the NY Auto Show in 3 weeks

    Lincoln has released a teaser video and picture to generate some buzz head of the NY International Auto Show in 3 weeks.  The Lincoln Corsair will take over for the Lincoln MKC when it goes on sale late this year.   Two of the engine options will carry over, the 2.0T and 2.3T ecoboost 4-cylinders, but a plug-in hybrid variant will bow in as well. 

    The Corsair fills in the entry level of Lincoln's SUV lineup, but if it is anything like the Aviator and Navigator, it will greatly up the ante on interior appointments and luxury. 

    Corsair is a nod to the nautical and aviation naming theme that Lincoln is using for its SUVS.  Corsair is unique in that is has been used both for boats and planes.

    I wish it all the success and hope folks do not confuse it with GM Corvair history. :P

    I think it has a great looking profile.  Even though we know it's not RWD, it looks like it could be.

    As long as it has an AWD option, it will take care of the 99.9% that care less about the FWD/RWD Debate.

    It will, naturally. 

    It's just that a RWD profile tends to look more premium.

    well yes... but it was in reference to Lincoln using nautical and aeronautical terms for its naming scheme.

    Probably won't look or drive at all like a Ford Escape.... oh wait.   I give credit to Lincoln for the name changes, upping their interior game and getting a more cohesive and consistent styling theme going on.  But all these are still dressed up Fords.

    Aviator came first. Navigator came first. Nautilus came first. This is going to be out before the new Escape.

    I think you'd be surprised how different it is from a Ford.

    Regardless of which comes first, all these Lincolns probably drive like a Ford.  Although they might be doing more than Cadillac is doing.

    After owning an Escape and now an MKC, again, you'd be surprised how different they are. Lincolns have adaptable/customizable suspensions, the MKC has a wider track front and rear than an Escape, all double pane glass and thicker door seals to isolate outside noises, the only thing inside that represents a Ford is the window and light switch-gear.

    I do wish that Cadillac brings back names (especially for the crossovers!).  Those who own an Escalade brag about it all day.

    I only had an Escalade for a week as a rental and I bragged about it.

    1959 Edsel Corsair!

    I am also keenly awaiting more inflammation about this Corsair.  I will bet you a lot of money it will be cooler than the Cadillac TX4 or whatever it's called.

    They should do a coupe version and call it Mariner, and a coupe of the Aviator called the Mountaineer.

      The first product to come from Ford's investment into startup automaker Rivian will likely be a Lincoln SUV due to arrive sometime in 2022.  The vehicle will be all-wheel drive and compete against Rivian's own R1S which is priced at $72,500.  The models will share Rivian's skateboard platform, a design that combines the motors, batteries, controls and suspension into a single unit that the body can be built around.  
      The Rivian R1S is a three-row EV crossover with a range of up to 410 miles and will be built in Normal Illinois at a former Mitsubishi plant. It is expected to go into production sometime in 2021.
      There will also be a compact Lincoln EV crossover coming for 2021 that could be built on the same platform that the Ford Mustang Mach-E rides on. 
      EV sales have been tepid so far in the US, but Lincoln is banking on the EVs to be bigger sellers in the Chinese market.

      Los Angeles - At the Los Angeles Auto Show, Lincoln introduced the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring, a plug-in hybrid trim.  Based on the standard Corsair, the Grand Touring's powertrain consists of a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gas engine and a permanent magnet synchronous motor.  The combined output based on Lincoln's calculations would be roughly 266 horsepower.  Electric All-wheel drive powers the rear wheels.  EV range is targeted at 25 miles EPA. 
      Power is conveyed through a PowerSplit electric continuously variable transmission with two electric motors working together to provide very smooth acceleration. 
      In addition to the five modes normally available to Corsair drivers, two additional modes are available on the Grand Touring;  Preserve EV mode recharges and saves battery power for later, the engine and motor work continuously to deliver full power.  The battery can be recharged up to 75 percent while in this mode. Pure EV mode is designed to keep the vehicle in all-electric mode as much as possible, only using the gasoline engine when the power demands exceed the electrical capabilities of the vehicle. 
      The Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring will be built in Louisville Kentucky and will go on sale summer of 2020.

    • Au contraire I believe.  I personally think that one contributing factor in the demise of Oldsmobile and Pontiac was BECAUSE GM went with the "corporate" engine route.  Many loyal Pontiac and Oldsmobile fans and buyers never forgave GM for eliminating Oldsmobile's and Pontiac's right to produce their own engines.  There were many loyal Pontiac and Oldsmobile engine fanatics that never really wanted or loved Chevrolet engines. The corporate V8 to this day is a Chevrolet V8...  At least Oldsmobile designed the Northstar V8 and had its mark on V8s for GM, but the Northstar was touted and marketed as a Cadillac engine. The Aurora V8 was Oldsmobile's V8 which was a smaller displacement version of the "Cadillac Northstar"... it lacked  cubic displacement, horsepower and torque in the road cars to actually make Oldsmobile fanboys happy and proud and ultimately keep them as clients.  At least the engine had success in racing, but GM was using mixed marketing signals and wasnt clear as to which division the North star/Aurora really belonged to and which "version" had success in the racing programs of the 1990s.  At least Oldsmobile also had a hand in GM's 4 cylinder development in keeping up with the times in the 1980s and well into the 1990s with the Quad 4...but the engine was ridiculed by the American automotive journalists for a lack of balance shafts and therefore less "refined" than the Japanese counterparts, which was a bunch of bullshyte...and which of course the Japanese jumped on that immediately with their advertisements in the American market... The bad thing about the Quad 4 was the gaskets leaked over a period of time...a problem that the Northstar had too... At least Oldsmobile also had hindsight to see the market perception of the need not only for 4 valves/cylinder DOHC V8 engines, and 4 bangers, but for 6 cylinders as well and the Shortstar was born.  Based on the Northstar/Aurora V8... But, GM did not really advertise that Oldsmobile still produced engines for itself and those engines were "corporate" engines in effect...  Poor old Pontiac though, had to concern itself in selling copy cat Chevrolet pony cars, it was always like that, but at least in the early 1970s, those were powered by pure Poncho engines, but by the time the 1980s rolled along, with a Pontiac fanboy's point of view, those awesome Firebirds/Trans Ams are not just shytty badge engineered Chevys with shytty Chevy engines underneath... And yes, along with the billions of dollars creating Saturn, and the billions in buying SAAB and trying to sustain both Saturn and SAAB, those 3 things had a huuuuuuge impact in the demise of Pontiac and Oldsmobile. And if we think clearly enough, many fans of those brands never came back to GM to buy Chevrolets or Buicks or Cadillacs. Not only did GM lose market share to the Japanese and Germans, because of the reasons we have discussed ad nauseam,  but because of the decision from GM itself to consolidate its brands. GM underestimated the loyalty of its customers and arrogantly thought that just because Oldsmobile and Pontiac were under the GM umbrella, that Pontiac and Oldsmobile buyers were actually in fact, GM customers....for life...  In other words, they believed their own marketing bullshyte in that a GM buyer will start life as a beginner and buy himself a Chevy, and as his finances grow, the customer will upgrade or graduate to Pontiac, then Oldsmobile, the Buick, then Cadillac... A good marketing strategy, but not really reality... Not a good thing when you start believing your own bullshyte...and yes...marketing in general is bullshyte...effective bullshyte...but bullshyte non the less...     I personally believe, instead of spending billions on the billions they spent on trying to reverse the market share decline on compliance  shyteboxes such as the X platform Citation and its badge engineered siblings, on the dumb decision to make a Cavalier into a Cadillac, (Nothing really wrong with the J platform), the crappy launch and the billions lost on the W-Body, the idiocy to develop a new kind of car company Saturn, the stupid decision to buy SAAB... Instead of all those BILLIONS lost and the result was MEDIOCRE to POOR and SHYTE vehicles, if GM had spent those BILLIONS  on REALLY engineering GREAT cars INCLUDING keeping the AUTONOMOUS identity of ALL its BRANDS that were Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Cadillac and GMC, then market share would stabilize and probably grow... Look ate GMC and the Denali... THAT is how it should have been done IN the 1970s...

    • I don't think either of us get BMWs to test. But anyway, we'd have to wait until June/July to test Android Auto anyway. 
    • Pretty straightforward; it wasn't 'duplication', it was 'competition'. They were largely autonomous Divisions. FoMoCo & ChryCo also had 400s- it was a 'tier' of displacements that customers were looking for. Another tier was 350-351-352 and 421-425-426-427-428-429-430 (some of these were set to comply with racing classes). Another: 300, 301, 302, 303, 304, 305, 307. Going to 'GM Powertrain' in the early '80s ("corporate engines") began the slide of GM's market share and devalued the Divisions to a notable degree.   BK would have hit a decade or so SOONER. You recall the case brought against GM for sharing 350s without telling customers? It was not widely acceptable then because Divisional identities were so strong.
