2023 Lincoln Corsair Debuts With Sync 4, ActiveGlide, And New Screen

Ford Authority has reported extensively on the forthcoming, refreshed 2023 Lincoln Corsair over the past several months, outlining a number of changes coming to the luxurious crossover including its revised exterior styling, a redesigned interior, and the deletion of optional turbocharged Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engine. Now, the 2023 Lincoln Corsair has been officially revealed, giving us a complete look at the newly-refreshed model and all of its updates.

2023 Lincoln Corsair

In terms of technology, the 2023 Lincoln Corsair gains the luxury brand’s ActiveGlide hands-free highway driving feature, which includes Lane Change Assist, Predictive Speed Assist, Intersection Assist 2.0, and In-Lane Repositioning – all updates that were recently announced for The Blue Oval’s version of this feature, BlueCruise. These features allow the driver to change lanes by simply tapping the turn signal, automatically adjust speed as the vehicle reaches sharp turns, and keep the crossover centered in its lane while also shifting away from larger vehicles such as semi-trucks when needed.

Inside the cabin, the 2023 Corsair gains two new interior themes – Smoked Truffle and Eternal Red, while the lower instrument cluster beneath the center stack screen has been redesigned to add more room in the front row. A backlit appliqué is also available, which shines in a perforated star pattern befitting of Lincoln’s iconic logo. The star of the show is a new 13.2-inch infotainment screen, however, which runs Sync 4 and offers over-the-air update capability.

For powertrains, the 2023 Lincoln Corsair comes standard with the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine while the 2.5L plug-in hybrid setup is present in the Corsair Grand Touring.

Order banks for the redesigned 2023 Corsair are open now, with the very first deliveries of the luxury crossover expected to begin in early 2023.

    That GT price is a deal breaker.

    1. RichG

      But were you really interested in a Corsair GT?

  2. Lincoln Fan Mark

    Yep, I like the changes but I’m disappointed if the hybrid won’t be available in Standard or Reserve trim levels. What is the rationale for making “hybrid” the high premium option while Toyota has sold millions of hybrids at all price points in their cars and SUV models?

    1. RichG

      Agree completely. Makes no sense.

  3. Chaddy

    Yikes, comparing 22 MY to 23 MY, price went up about $2k. Blue Cruise is an $8k option!

    Hopefully the 2023 Escape will be unveiled in the next few days then. I really hope the price doesn’t jump $2k on the Escape PHEV, its already $46K. Can you imagine a fully loaded out Escape PHEV with blue cruise costing $53-55K?!?

  4. Mrx19

    Great vehicle when my fully optioned 2017 Reserve was 45k. Not so sure at the new price levels. Make the hybrid available on all levels. Larger grille does nothing for me. The “who can make the biggest grille” competition continues to rage amongst all manufactures.

  5. MJ

    The grille is way to big , makes the front end look too heavy and bulky.
    Was going to order one, but I also hate the tacky screens, why cant they incorporate them better into the IP like Hyundai . Going to actually order a 2023 Sportage since the interior is so much nicer than any Ford or Lincoln. The screen sticking up by itself is not only ugly but visually distracting as they are up too high .

    1. RichG

      The screens in Lincolns are not “tacky” or “up too high.” Once you sit in the vehicles (I’ve been in the Nautilus, the Aviator, and the Corsair), the screen is NOT in the way or distracting.

      I also disagree that the Sportage interior is nicer at all than Lincoln’s, let alone “so much nicer.” The Sportage is all screen to me, and that is distracting.

  6. Tommy

    I thought Lincoln was going to phase in the China Zephyr grille as the new look here in USA? I was also hoping for surprises like maybe a 3-door hatchback with the 3.0TT as something to really draw the young crowd but oh well. Is it me or is the red interior color a left over from the Vineyard Black Label offered a few years back?

    1. Michael K

      They are, but doing so would require a more extensive investment and redesign to the Corsair, including new headlights and fender sheetmetal. This is half-way there on a minimal design budget. It’s likely the Corsair is to be replaced by an EV in about 3-years.

  7. RichG

    LOL Your comments are so negative about everything that I wonder why you’re even here. I’m no fanboy who drools over everything Ford and Lincoln do, but I just don’t understand checking out a company website when you think the vehicles are ugly, are bad quality, and when you’re done with them.

  8. Murf

    Good looking SUV/CUV. Clean lines and a great appearance. But TOTALLY against any vehicle being handsfree. The adds on TV with people crusing along clapping, singing and no hands on the wheel…bad call. Until ALL vehicles are handsfree, the technology is proven, and deployed by all vehicles on the road, it is a red line for me. And since we are talkiing technology, why do we need any big screen TV in ANY vehicle. Especially on the dash. Drivers are distracted enough with phones, work briefs, reports, makeup and cosmetics, zoom calls, business meetings, food, drink,etc.. Keep everything Ya want Ford, but dump anything bigger than 8″screens and the “blue cruise” thing. I am sure my comment and fifty cents will get me a cold cup of coffee however.

  9. Matt

    The hybrid ( or plug in hybrid) needs to be available in all trims.
    If Lincoln is moving in an electric direction a move like this would lead more customers down the path and help with brand image.
    Maybe they can’t source enough batteries?
    This is a great vehicle we are driving a 2020 model now but, just wish we could do better than 25 mpg overall.

  10. Dan C

    Would be nice if Lincoln offered the Corsair in a regular Hybrid, not a plug-in. The Escape offers a regular hybrid. I have a ’22 Reserve and have been averaging 22 MPG city and 32 MPG highway with the 2.0. However I would seriously consider a regular hybrid when my lease is up in 18 months. If Lincoln doesn’t offer one then I would consider the Escape or another one. I don’t understand why Lincoln took the route of a plug-in only hybrid with the Corsair? Probably a corporate edict.
