The Navigator and Aviator have a baby brother, but while the 2020 Lincoln Corsair may be smaller on the asphalt, it arrives with an outsized personality.Replacing the dreary, forgettable MKC is, on paper, straightforward.Doing so in a way that doesn’t dilute the work Lincoln has done to position itself the flag-bearer of New American Luxury, in a fierce premium crossover segment, well that’s quite another thing.Lincoln’s nearly-brash aesthetic is an appealingly memorable one, and it suits the Corsair well.At the front, it gives the SUV a splash of chromed glamour borrowed from larger cars like the Aviator and the Navigator, combined with bulging surfaces cut through with deep crease-lines.As standard, the 2020 Corsair gets a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, with 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Against the backdrop of New York's eternal hustle, bustle and sirens, Lincoln president Joy Falotico, said at a preview event that the 2020 Lincoln Corsair is intended to offer "a moment of quiet in the chaos of everyday life."Corsair chief engineer John Jraiche said the new Corsair is intended to compete with models like the Cadillac XT4 and Lexus NX.The Corsair's design follows cues set out by other recent Lincoln crossovers such as the Nautilus and Aviator, with Lincoln's usual grille shape on the nose, swept-back headlights on the fenders, and what designer David Woodhouse calls "S-curve" surfacing on the body sides, hood and liftgate.However, with abundant soft leather and wood trim, the cabin feels suitably luxurious.The center stack is cantilevered outward at an angle, bringing important buttons, including the climate controls, closer to the driver and passenger while allowing for access beneath to a large storage cubby.And the remainder of the steering wheel controls have little icons that change depending on their current function.
Against the backdrop of New York City's eternal hustle, bustle and sirens of New York City outside, Lincoln president Joy Falotico said at a preview event Monday that the brand's newest crossover is intended to offer "a moment of quiet in the chaos of everyday life."The 2020 Lincoln Corsair, which replaces the MKC as the brand's entry-level crossover offering, makes its public debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show.Design-wise, the Corsair follows cues set out by other recent Lincoln crossovers such as the Nautilus and Aviator, with Lincoln's usual grille shape on the nose, swept-back headlights on the fenders, and what designer David Woodhouse calls "S-curve" surfacing on the body sides, hood and liftgate.However, with abundant soft leather and wood trim, the cabin feels suitably luxurious.The center stack is cantilevered outward at an angle, bringing important buttons, including the climate controls, closer to the driver and passenger while allowing for access beneath to a large storage cubby.And the remainder of the steering wheel controls have little icons that change depending on their current function.
Lincoln has shrunk the Navigator, with the 2020 Corsair squeezing luxury and eye-catching style into a smaller footprint.The new SUV, launching at the New York Auto Show 2019 today, completes Lincoln’s line-up of completely revamped SUVs, with two rows of seats and the same aesthetic as its larger models.It’s been a good few years for Lincoln’s trucks.The 2020 Corsair will seat five, inside a cabin that Lincoln’s engineers have doubled-down on sound and vibration insulation.Under the hood there’ll be a choice of two four-cylinder engines.The entry-level Corsair will get a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 with a projected 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.
With the hustle, bustle and constant sirens of New York City outside, Lincoln president Joy Falotico said at a preview event in the city Monday that the brand's newest crossover is intended to offer "a moment of quiet in the chaos of everyday life."The 2020 Lincoln Corsair makes its debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show and succeeds the MKC as the brand's entry-level crossover offering.Design-wise, the Corsair follows cues set out by other recent Lincoln crossovers such as the Nautilus and Aviator, with Lincoln's usual grille shape on the nose, swept-back headlights on the fenders, and what designer David Woodhouse calls "S-curve" surfacing on the body sides, hood and liftgate.However, with abundant soft leather and wood trim, the cabin feels suitably luxurious.The center stack is cantilevered outward at an angle, bringing important buttons, including the climate controls, closer to the driver and passenger while allowing for access beneath to a large storage cubby.And the remainder of the steering wheel controls have little icons that change depending on their current function.
In keeping with parent Ford’s plan to emphasize crossovers, SUVs, and pickup trucks over sedans and hatchbacks, Lincoln will unveil a new crossover at the 2019 New York Auto Show.The 2020 Lincoln Corsair will be the smallest utility vehicle in the luxury brand’s lineup.Like the MKC, we expect the Corsair to be based on the Ford Escape, albeit a new generation of the Ford that has yet to be revealed.Lincoln currently shares all of its utility-vehicle platforms with parent Ford: The Nautilus is based on the Ford Edge, the Navigator is based on the Ford Expedition, and the 2020 Aviator that goes on sale this summer will share DNA with the 2020 Ford Explorer.“Corsair” is a synonym for pirates or privateers, and it’s also the name of a legendary World War II fighter plane, so it’s not the worst name for a car.Lincoln is returning to using real names for its vehicles, rather than the previous scheme of “MK” followed by a letter.
