The famous luxury carmaker started recently with a completely new naming policy. After the new Aviator, there is another crossover to come with a much better name. This one is about to come as the 2020 Lincoln Corsair and it is a direct replacement to the aging MKC. With the soon arrival of Ford Escape, we count on Lincoln’s sibling as well. However, it won’t be just an upgraded Ford crossover. We count on far mode refinement than before, with the design that will pick a lot of vibes from the new Aviator and from the full-size Navigator. In terms of the size, it will be a typical compact crossover.
Also, it will be adapted to the brand’s newest design language, both from the outside and from the inside. Of course, count on a familiar lineup of EcoBoost engines, all with four cylinders. The testing model has been spotted and the latest reports suggest it could come pretty soon, maybe even by the end of the year, as 2020 Lincoln Corsair. More details should be known in the near future.
2020 Lincoln Corsair Redesign
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair will be a brand-new model from the famous manufacturer. As you may presume, it will come as a direct replacement to the MKC model. It will be a compact luxury crossover, a smaller sibling of the upcoming Aviator. In terms of mechanics, it will share a lot with the upcoming new-generation Ford Escape. This is definitely a good thing, as the Escape is actually engineered in Germany and comes as a re-badged version of Kuga. The upcoming redesign will bring improvements in many aspects, including driving dynamics.
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair will definitely benefit from new design solutions in many ways. Still, it will also come with numerous changes, in order to accentuate its premium character. Count on upgraded suspension and similar parts, which will provide an even better driving experience. In terms of dimensions, we still don’t know whether the Corsair is going to be bigger or smaller than the new Escape.
2020 Lincoln Corsair Styling
The testing model has been spotted recently and it still wears a complete camouflage. However, we can clearly see some of the major styling solutions. There is no doubt that the new 2020 Lincoln Corsair will take a lot of inspiration from the new Aviator and the flagship Navigator. This will be a significant improvement compared to the outgoing MKC, which definitely looks like it comes from another era of the automotive industry. The front end, as well as the overall shape, will be very similar to the new Aviator, just in a smaller package. This will be a compact crossover, which means two rows of seats only, which further means shorter rear overhang. Such design will definitely accentuate the model’s sporty character, which is expected on this occasion. Of course, count on a fine portion of distinctive details as well.
2020 Lincoln Corsair Interior
When it comes to the interior design, we count on a typical amount of space for the segment. This will be a compact crossover, so count on two quite spacious rows of seats. The first row should be particularly comfortable, with massive and supportive seats. On the other side, the rear bench will be typical for the class of compact crossover. This means the capacity for two, rather than three adult passengers. In terms of the styling, we expect that the dashboard should take a lot of vibes from bigger siblings, Aviator and Navigator. Count tons of plush, hi-end materials, and plenty of styles. Of course, as a luxury crossover, the 2020 Lincoln Corsair will come with a full load of standard equipment. This refers to all kinds of tech goodies, safety systems, driver aids etc.
2020 Lincoln Corsair Engines
Under the hood, the 2020 Lincoln Corsair will most likely come with two quite familiar EcoBoost units. The base engine will probably be a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine, which delivers around 240 horsepower. A familiar 2.3-liter EcoBoost unit will take care of higher trims and be a great choice for all those who want a little bit peppier ride. This unit will probably be tuned to somewhere between 275 and 300 horsepower. Both engines should come in a pair with a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
We expect to see an electrified version in the offer as well. It should a plug-in hybrid powertrain, based on some of the two mentioned gasoline engines. However, it definitely won’t be ready for the initial production year.
2020 Lincoln Corsair Release Date and Price
According to spy shots of the testing mule, the 2020 Lincoln Corsair seems like it is in an advanced stage of development. Therefore, we won’t be surprised at all if we see it on the market by the end of this year. When it comes to the price, base models should go somewhere between 35.000 and 40.000 dollars.
