Lincon has announced that the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring will debut in LA this week, adding a plug-in hybrid option for luxury SUV buyers that brings both performance and features that are unique for the brand. The Corsair Grand Touring is the second plug-in hybrid that Lincoln offers along with the Aviator Grand Touring that launched this fall.

The Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring features a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine paired with advanced hybrid technology. The vehicle also brings a Lincoln-first electric all-wheel drive, which is also a first in its segment. The 2.5-liter four is an Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine paired up with a permanent magnet synchronous motor for a combined targeted output of 266 horsepower based on Lincoln calculations in engineering simulations.

Lincoln is targeting an all-electric driving range of more than 25 miles. The automaker notes that the final EPA ratings for the Corsair Grand Touring will be available in 2020. A PowerSplit electric continuously variable transmission with two electric motors that work together for a smooth driving experience. Those electric motors power the rear wheels and provide performance and capability in situations where power to all four wheels is needed.

Lincoln drive modes allow for a customized driving experience and include Normal, Conserve, Excite, Slippery, and Deep Conditions. Since the Grand Touring is a hybrid, it also gets Preserve EV mode to recharge the battery and save that power for later, allowing the battery to be charged up to 75 percent while driving. Pure EV puts the car in all-electric mode, but when the battery gets too low, the engine engages. Like all other Lincolns, the Corsair Grand Touring is focused on being quiet and smooth with microphones throughout the cabin to cancel noise, and it has several driver-assist technologies. The vehicle will be available for purchase next summer.

  1. I think they should have reserved the GT (Grand Touring) designation for a performance hybrid like they did with the Aviator.

  2. Ford should apply the same hybrid technology to ALL their models, from the Fiesta to the Expedition. The extra price will be recovered by the savings in the early years of ownership and a hybrid vehicle uses its engine less then 30% of the normal gas only driving. This reduces oil changes to once per year, and all the other items that wear out, such as brakes and engine air filters, last three times as much. A hybrid engine has all the accessories electric powered, so there are no belts or pulleys in the engine bay, and the bay stays clearer, too.
