2020 Lincoln Corsair AWD Reserve Interactive Review

We’re spending this week with the 2020 Lincoln Corsair AWD Reserve with the Reserve II Package.

Our model is a Corsair Reserve with all-wheel drive. It also features the Reserve II package, which includes Lincoln Co-Pilot360 Plus, adaptive suspension, and 24-way power seats. It wears Magnetic Grey Metallic paint with a premium leather Ebony/Cashew interior.

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair comes standard with the 2.0L EcoBoost engine, but our test vehicle is equipped with the optional and more powerful 2.3L EcoBoost engine. It is rated at 295 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with FoMoCo’s eight-speed SelectShift automatic transmission and can only be optioned into the Corsair with all-wheel drive.

As it sits, the model stickers for $58,360 after destination and acquisition fees.

We’ll have this compact luxury crossover for a week, so if you would like to know more about it beyond the spec sheet, ask your comments in the section below, and we’ll reply in a timely manner as part of our interactive review.

Let’s hear what you’ve got!

    Is it as buttery-smooth and as quiet as the MKC reserve it replaced? I have read in more than one review that it isn’t.

    1. Chris Teague

      It’s quite smooth, but the transmission can be indecisive at times. The ride is comfortable and the interior stays pretty quiet, even over the awful broken pavement in my area.

    I love my new Corsair……can’t seem to get Google maps/ navigation on the screen even though Android auto is connected and working….does it work on yours?

    1. Chris Teague

      I don’t have an Android to test, but that is a common issue I’ve heard of. There are some steps to take that could help solve the problem. They’re on Google’s Android support site. One of them is checking your Google Maps app settings to be sure it has background activity enabled. People seemed to think that was a good first step.

    Do the rear outboard seat belts also have pretensioners as well as energy management retractors? Or are these two safety features only standard as part of the Personal Safety System for front seat occupants?

  4. DeMonso

    My neighbor has one in blue but 60k is a lot of money to pay for a small suv with a 4 Cylinder engine

  5. Robert Belk

    I love my Corsair but was confused and not to happy to have to move to a reserve 2 to get massaging seats. I think they need to redo their options pricing and change some packages to individual option choices.

  6. Roy Chiles

    Small talk aside soon or later Lincoln is going to have to build vehicles that separate it from Ford models which over shadow the brand today. Like one person said 60k is a lot to spend on a 4 cylinder Escape with a Lincoln grill and a few options

  7. Roy Chiles

    All Lincoln models should adopt the door handles from the Continentals model as a standard Brand Trademark as is the push button transmission. Upgrade like that will bring big design changes

  8. Dennis

    Push button transmission is no longer unique to Lincoln….but yes it is nice on my ford escape corsair….gotta get Android auto fixed though

    Push button transmission is no longer unique to Lincoln….but yes it is nice on my ford escape corsair….gotta get droidauto fixed though

    1. Roy Chiles

      It was a option on some brands in the 50s now others have followed but Lincoln return to it first
