2021 Lincoln Corsair Launch Timeframe

As of this writing, the 2021 Corsair is available at the retail level, as the Ford Louisville Assembly plant has been producing the compact crossover since late 2020, although the ongoing microchip shortage has been disrupting production at the facility for several months now. Additionally, production of the Corsair Grand Touring, which was scheduled to begin production on April 16th, 2021, has likely been impacted by the supply shortage as well, since Ford shut down the plant that week, and the following week too. Production of the Corsair Grand Touring is now scheduled to begin in May, as of this writing.

Shoppers interested in Lincoln’s compact crossover should check with their local dealer regarding pricing and availability of models clad in Asher Gray.

Ford Authority has extensively covered the changes to the Corsair lineup for the 2021 model year, which include the addition of a new Sport Package and the Monochromatic Package, plus the inclusion of front and rear camera washers on examples equipped with the Lincoln Co-Pilot360 Plus Package. Since its debut, the Corsair has garnered high praise from third-party publications and from the owners themselves, making it one of the most appealing vehicles in its class, according to a recent Consumer Reports survey.

The 2021 Corsair rides on the Ford C2 platform shared most directly with the 2021 Ford Escape and is currently in its first generation, after succeeding the Lincoln MKC.

    Lol, all we need, more greys.

    1. Paul Benedict

      I looked at a 2021 Asher Gray Corsair parked next to a 2020 Magnetic Gray Corsair. Almost no difference. It would be nice if Lincoln came up with a totally new color now and then, instead of a slightly different shade of gray. But, I suppose few people would dare buy a totally new color and Lincoln doesn’t want to waste the effort.

    Lincoln doesn’t want to spend money changing colors either, seems like grey is the only color besides warmed over burgundy a shade up or down. What fashion trend they insisting on? The whole palette needs help in my opinion. Lol

    1. The Gentle Grizzly

      The trend they are following is called “General Motors”. Any color you want as long as it is a variation on a theme of gray. Interiors: any color you want so long as it’s black, or “sandstone” which is likely some variation on a theme of blah

  5. Xobo

    The only colors almost any car companies are offering are the 4: Black, white, silver, and grey, Hard to find any Blues or Reds being offered for sale. My 2004 Metallic Red Thunderbird is beautiful. Hard to see the “Metallic” in any so-called metallic color these days.

    Lincoln’s burgundy is so dark it looks like its black unless it is direct sunlight.

    Even the Ford Bronco color “Area 51” looks great. Why can’t Lincoln steal that color.
