Lincoln News: Rumorpile: Lincoln MKC to Become Corsair

Recommended Posts

Lincoln has been slowing transitioning their nomenclature system from three letter (MK_) to actual names - MKX to Nautilus for example. The next-generation MKC, due in 2020 as a 2021 model will see its name change to Corsair.

Automotive News reports the name was announced last month to Ford and Lincoln dealers at a conference held in Orlando according to those who attended the meeting. Corsair, the name of a pirate ship and a World War II fighter plane first came to light last year when Ford filed a trademark on. The name was last used on a badge engineered model between Ford and Nissan for Australia.

Sources at Ford said the name isn't final and could change before the model goes into production.

Dealers at the meeting were also shown the next-generation Ford Escape, Explorer, Mach 1 EV crossover, and the Lincoln Continental with suicide doors.

Cool..an old Edsel model name.  Capri would have been good also, since that was a Lincoln name previously.   I wonder if the MKZ is going to get renamed Zephyr or it it toast since they are axing the Fusion for the US?

Hopefully they are more successful with Corsair than GM was. :P 

Gotta love the return to names! :metal:

They didn't (in the US) other than this :

IF GM had produced these, I'd SO own one right now!

I like the real names, and Corsair sounds good but reminded me of Corvair, which sucked.

Maybe they could bring back Mariner.  Then you have a land, air and sea approach with Navigator, Aviator, and Mariner.
