It seems like yesterday that Ford Authority first reported on the all-new 2020 Lincoln Corsair, which replaced the Lincoln MKC as the entry level compact luxury crossover in Lincoln’s revitalized lineup. But things move pretty quickly in the automotive world, and Lincoln appears intent on keeping its best-seller in prime fighting shape, based on what was sent to us by our photographers. Given the brand’s push to offer more standard and optional technology throughout its lineup, it’s safe to say the 2023 Lincoln Corsair will likely gain a number of features that its larger and more expensive brethren have been blessed with over the past year or so.
Considering the copious amounts of camoflauge that are adhered to the front end of this 2023 Lincoln Corsair, the refreshed model will most likely feature some type of visual update to that area, possibly moving things around to accommodate the extra sensors needed for something like Lincoln ActiveGlide driver-assist system. The cutouts below the grille and in the center of the lower fascia are two potential indicators that such an accommodation will in fact take place. As Ford Authority previously reported, the updated 2022 Lincoln Navigator will feature the hands-free system when it launches early next year. In fact, before its official debut, our spy photographers spotted what were clearly early examples of the SUV wearing similar disguises to what Lincoln put on this Corsair.
Therefore, it stands to reason that whenever the 2023 Lincoln Corsair is made public, it will likely boast an aesthetic similar to what the current model offers, but pack more tech and features into its cabin to keep it competitive with vehicles like the all-new 2022 Lexus NX. It will also help the compact compare favorably to the significantly refreshed 2021 Lincoln Nautilus and the upcoming 2022 Navigator, both of which have Sync 4 at their disposal. Along with better voice recognition, the latest Ford infotainment system has historically come paired with over-the-air updating capability for every model it debuted on. Coined Lincoln Enhance, the technology allows owners to receive updates to the vehicle without it ever leaving the driveway.
At this point it is unclear if the 2023 Lincoln Corsair will receive any powertrain updates, although given the brand’s upcoming EV pivot in the coming years, a new ICE engine seems highly unlikely. Expanded availability of the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring is a more likely scenario, and this particular Corsair appears to be one.
In any event, we’ll have much more Lincoln Corsair news in the near future, so subscribe to Ford Authority for more Lincoln news, Lincoln Corsair news, and continuous Ford news coverage.
Nothing new to see here same lights as the Navigator got. Where are the sedans and coupes that this company was built off of ?
Most Manufacturers are moving away from sedans,SUV is where the big money is now. People simply aren’t buying sedans as they once did, can’t say I blame Lincoln for moving away from sedans because the numbers support this move. Maybe they will bring back one sedan once they move to an all electric lineup in the future.
Yep, there are so many contributing factors that it’s hard to pinpoint one exact reason why cars are going away. But I think the biggest factor is that SUVs and crossovers just bring a lot more profit. People often say that Ford is forcing car customers to move to other brands, and that may be true. But if Ford would have to spend say $50,000,000 (I’m pulling these numbers out of the air) to develop the next-gen Fusion and then make $30,000,000 profit off the Fusion, or spend those same $50,000,000 to improve their SUV lineup and make another $50,000,000 profit off of that (pulling in new customers with better SUVs), they’d have to be stupid to choose the Fusion over the SUVs.
Ford really has done a nice job with the Corsair. I could without the power seat adjusters on the door though.
Roy, some people are just stuck in the past. C’mon man.
Unlike U, I don’t want or need a over sized Station Wagon that’s worth nothing Now or Later. U buy what U want and I will do the same as for the Corsair it’s a over priced Escape that sales worse than the Bronco Sport which is on the same platform. FORD dropped the Ranger in 2011 telling the same Lie, where is the Ranger today?
Camo?? What a joke. they could drive them around all day without camo and no one would ever notice.
Can’t buy a MKZ, next sedan will have to be Lexus or maybe a Legacy.
