Here are the details for the new 2020 Lincoln Corsair. The luxury brand’s new compact crossover is replacing the MKC in its lineup. The new Corsair has the style and technology shared with the larger Lincoln Aviator and Navigator, but similar to the MKC in size. The MKC and the Corsair are both built with the same underpinnings of the 2020 Ford Escape.
Recently, the 2020 Lincoln Corsair was debuted at the New York Auto Show. The all-new Corsair is powered by the 2.0- or 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines, like in the MKC, but with different output. The 2.0-liter pushes out 250 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. It comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel-drive is an option. The 2.3-liter engine has 280-hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, coming standard with all-wheel-drive. Both options of the Corsair are upgraded to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Looking at the interior design, the Corsair invested in a number of technology features. The low, wide dashboard is constructed with several different materials, including leather, metal and wood. New features include the full-width-style air vents, a center stack in the dash, and special color combinations including a dark turquoise design. All Corsairs will have active noise cancellation, heated mirrors, 10-way power heated memory seat, proximity keys and push-button start, LED headlights, power hatchback and remote start. Upgrades available include panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, wireless phone charging, rain-sensing wipers, and a 14-speaker sound system.
Like the full size Lincoln vehicles, the 24-way power seats are an option in the Corsair. There is an option to use a cell phone as the key, and distributing the code to other people. In the phone key can also store all your personal settings for the vehicle. The touch screen can be replaced by a 12.3-inch display. Other tech options include adaptive suspension, lane centering, adaptive cruise control, rear automatic emergency braking and automatic parking.
Lincoln stated that hybrid versions of the Corsair will be available at a later time. No further details are available, but not surprising with the automotive industry technology shift. Pricing has not been announced for the Lincoln Corsair, but expect something in the mid to upper $35K range, similar to the MKC.
