The upcoming Lincoln MKC replacement, which will likely be renamed the Lincoln Corsair, is now on track for 2020, a year ahead of the original production schedule, according to sources. This earlier-than-expected date may be caused by a devotion to revamping crossovers and SUVs and the blue oval’s gradual elimination of sedans.
According to sources, the style of the Lincoln Corsair borrows many elements from the Aviator Concept. The mirrors, front fenders, and the wider looking stance appear to be taken right off the concept. While the current clamshell tailgate remains, the back of the Lincoln Corsair includes Aviator-inspired tail lights and rear bumper.
With Ford Motor Company determined to incorporate hybrid technology throughout its lineup, one can expect the Lincoln Corsair to offer hybrid/PHEV powertrain, like its Escape cousin, and 4 cylinder Ecoboost.
