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

Recommended Posts

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.

... and cars.

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.

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.
