After eight years, Lincoln finally found its footing in China in 2021, appealing to younger buyers and outpacing U.S. sales for the very first time. Much of this can be attributed to a bevy of new products including the refreshed 2022 Lincoln Aviator and the all-new Lincoln Zephyr, the latter of which was designed specifically for the Chinese market. However, that trend continues with the recently-revealed Lincoln Navigator One, an ultra-luxurious variant of the already luxurious SUV, and now, the new Lincoln Corsair Alaska Glacier Limited Edition.
Limited to just 588 units, the Lincoln Corsair Alaska Glacier Limited Edition is fittingly finished in Glacier Blue on the outside and fitted with 19-inch black wheels. Lincoln Co-Pilot360 adds a suite of driver-assist functions including adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection, to name a few. Power comes from the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost powerplant, which cranks out 250 horsepower and 390 Nm of torque (280 pound-feet), while five selectable drive modes are included, too.
Inside the cabin, the Corsair Alaska Glacier features a Topaz Blue cabin with sports pedals, the Lincoln Fragrance System – which comes with seven unique fragrances including “Love Sea”, “Yueran” and “Xuri” – Comfort Mode, Savannah semi-aniline high-grade leather seats, over-the-air update capability, and a 12.8-inch infotainment screen. The SYNC+ Intelligent Mobility Interconnection System gives the Corsair Alaska Glacier Limited Edition a vehicle-road coordination function, which can display information including traffic light alerts, green light prompts, green wave guidance, red light warnings, and display traffic signs ahead. Pricing for this new, special model starts out at RMB 287,800 ($41,522 USD).
It’s possible that some of the features present in this China-only model may make it to the U.S. version, including its larger infotainment screen and OTA capability. The North American 2023 Lincoln Corsair is set to receive a refresh for the new model year, which will include revised exterior styling, some interior updates, and the deletion of the previously-optional turbocharged Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engine, as Ford Authority reported earlier this month.
