The new Lincoln Corsair is the perfect crossover SUV. It has been built on the same platform as the New Ford Escape. It has a robust exterior and a classy interior. Lincoln Corsair has many newer features as compared to the previous models. Let us look at the different specs and features of the car:

Release date and Pricing:

The new Lincoln Corsair is set to release in fall 2019. So, the car will hit the streets at the start of 2020.

Since the Company hasn’t released the car yet, no one knows its exact cost price. Ford Escape costs around $30,000. However, Lincoln Corsair is more luxurious than the Ford Escape. Therefore, its price range will be somewhere between $30,000 and $50,000. Let us wait and see whether these claims turn out to be true.

Engine and Performance:

The new Lincoln Corsair will have the same four-cylinder engine as the Lincoln MKC. It will have either a 280-HP 2.3-liter engine or a 250-HP 2.0-liter engine. Both of these will be available with an eight-speed automatic transmission. You will have a choice between front and all-wheel drive with the smaller engine. However, the 2.3-liter engine comes only with the standard wheel drive.

The 2015 model moved from 0 to 50 mph in 8 seconds. This is lower than the MKC, whose acceleration from 0 to 60 was 7 seconds. However, the manufacturers say that Corsair will have a new plugin to increase its acceleration and handling.

Exterior:

Although there are some similarities between Corsair and Ford Escape, both look very different from the outside. Lincoln has a distinctive grille. It also has a sleeker bodywork done on it as compared to the Ford Escape.

The Corsair wheelbase is a bit longer than MKCs. However, it sits a bit lower. The exterior is built in such a way to make for a large interior space. There is a large luggage capacity between the second-row seats and the rear seats.

Interior:

A look at the inside shows the brand’s latest styles, an awesome center stack, and a table-like infotainment screen. The SUV also has plenty of chrome trim elements. All Corsairs have an 8.0-inch display along with a Sync 3 infotainment system. The SUV also has a 14 speaker audio system. The center stack is quite elegant with a small item space in it. The stack also has a push-up gear control system, which is quite cool.

The owners will be amazed at the large and quiet cabin space in the interior. In order to give a unique look to the interior, the Corsair has six different alert warnings. For example, you will get a warning on opened fuel doors and unbuckled seat belts.

The great thing about Lincoln Corsair is that the owner can lock the car with the help of Lincoln mobile app. There are multiple features of the mobile app, like adjusting the mirrors and seats. Thus, Corsair’s interior is quite tech-friendly.

Safety:

Although Lincoln Corsair 2020 hasn’t been tested for crash tests, it is quite safe. Most Corsairs come with an advanced safety mechanism. Some amazing safety features include lane keeping assistance, traffic crossing warning, blind spot warning, collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.

There is also active parking assist in the SUV, which makes parking quite easy. All you have to do is push a button and the car will handle the steering and the gear and park the car at your appointed stop. There is also adaptive cruise control, which starts and stops the car automatically.

Verdict:

The Lincoln Company has become the American heartbeat and it has always remained true to its name. Lincoln Corsair, the latest model, is a small SUV with breathtaking specs. The main test of the car will be its fuel economy and handling. If these are up to the mark, Lincoln Corsair may become the best SUV of the decade.
