2022 Lincoln Corsair Gains New Bronze Smoke Color: First Look

The 2022 Lincoln Corsair adds three new colors to its roster: Elite Blue, Ocean Drive Blue, and Bronze Smoke. Here’s our first look at the Bronze Smoke option.

Assigned order code EF, Bronze Smoke is one of 10 colors offered on the 2022 Lincoln Corsair (base), Corsair Reserve, and Corsair Grand Touring. The new hue can be paired with any interior color combination except for Ebony with Medium Slate.

Lincoln Corsair Trim Levels:

  • Base
  • Reserve
  • Grand Touring

Lincoln Corsair Interior Color Combinations:

  • Ebony
  • Sandstone
  • Ebony with Medium Slate
  • Ebony with Cashew

In addition, the Bronze Smoke color is an extra-cost option, adding $695 to the vehicle’s price.

The 2022 Corsair has been in production since December 2021 at the Ford Louisville Assembly Plant. As of this writing, units of the 2022 Lincoln Corsair in Bronze Smoke are available at dealers nationwide, however availability varies by dealer and region.

Ford Authority has extensively reported on the changes and updates for the 2022 Lincoln Corsair including the addition of a new Dura-Touch wrapped steering wheel as standard equipment, replacing the leather-wrapped steering wheel on prior model years. It’s also worth noting that the compact luxury crossover has dropped its standard Revel Audio System, replacing it with the 10-speaker Lincoln Premium Audio System.

We should also note that the Corsair is expected to receive a mid-cycle refresh for the 2023 model year, for which the CUV is expected to receive a slew of tech updates, including Lincoln ActiveGlide, the brand’s new semi-autonomous driver-assist system. Other expected updates include a significantly more modern infotainment system with SYNC 4 running on a larger center touchscreen. This addition of SYNC 4 should also result in improved voice recognition capability.

Ford Authority spies have spotted a number of 2023 Corsair prototypes undergoing testing over the past few months, including a possible hybrid model. That comes just as Lincoln has made public its commitment to electrifying its entire lineup by 2030.

    Sure, offer a nice new colour, and charge $700 extra for it. So what is the sense offering it since how many people are going to pay extra for it?

    The bronze color is ugly. Too many dark colors , need more lighter brighter colors .

    I for one like the heartbeat that’s behind this thinking 🤔. It’s people focus while making their products appealing to a wider range of buyers. Reaching out is people friendly and does connect . 👍🏻👏🏻

    I’d have to see it in person to know if I like it. It looks very dark on my computer but I do love when new colors are available. My last MKX was iced mocha and my new Corsair is Ocean Drive Blue which may be my favorite color ever and I’ve had many cars. Loved my Dynasty Green Ford Falcon in the 60s too!!! Lots of colors in between but those, and black, are my favorites!

    Thrilled to see a new color with some style. At least it is not another shade of white, silver, gray, black or beige,,, which I consider to have no personality and makes no statement. Bronze is a definite “choice”; not a compromise or lack of decision, or a blend into the masses.

    So the price has increased and they removed the standard Revel audio system. I wonder what they replaced it with.

    1. Edward

      The Revel system is now part of the “Luxury Package”. The standard audio system is a 10-speaker setup that is still quite nice. I got the Revel system in mine, though, because it is spectacular.

  7. Edward

    This “new” color is very similar to the one I had on my 2018 Ford Escape Titanium, called “Glazed Cinnamon Metallic”. I loved that color, rarely saw it on any other vehicles. My 2022 Corsair Grand Touring is “Flight Blue”.

    And Kenny D., you obviously have never seen or been inside a Lincoln. They are most definitely not a “rebadged Ford”. Just admit you can’t afford one and move on.

  8. Mik

    Why are you showing Nautilus Trim Levels and color combos for a Corsair? Was planning on ordering the 2023 but then learned of a total refresh for 2024!!! Guess I’ll have to wait another year, but I know it will be well worth it!

    Kenny D.. Just an FYI, the Ford Escape does NOT have the luxury features that the Corsair offers. If it did, I would save some money and buy the Ford.😉
