2023 Lincoln Corsair For China Potentially Revealed

In the past, we’ve seen more than one new Blue Oval model leaked via various Chinese websites, including the all-new Lincoln Zephyr, which appeared on the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology site last November ahead of its official debut a couple of weeks later. Now, what could be the refreshed Chinese version of the 2023 Lincoln Corsair has also been potentially revealed, though this time around, it’s not via an official government website, but rather, an independent entity called PC Auto.

Ford’s Chinese offerings have begun to diverge from the same models in the U.S. recently – particularly in terms of styling – but the current-gen Corsair is at least pretty similar for the time being. However, that will soon change with the launch of the recently-revealed 2023 Lincoln Corsair for North America, which features updated styling inside and out, as well as a host of new features and options.

As is the case with most recent Chinese Blue Oval products, these images purported to show the refreshed version of the 2023 Lincoln Corsair for that country bear a strong resemblance to the Zephyr. That includes the front end, which features a large grille and slim headlights, as well as the rear portion, which is equipped with a full-width taillight bar. Overall, it’s quite distinctive when compared to the refreshed North American Corsair, though it’s unclear if these photos are real or not.

As for the U.S. version of the luxury crossover, it debuted with not only updated styling, but also Lincoln’s ActiveGlide hands-free highway driving feature, a 13.2-inch infotainment screen running Sync 4, two new interior themes, and a redesigned center stack. 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. The very first deliveries of the luxury crossover are expected to begin in early 2023.

    For Lincoln being an American company China sure is getting a lot of cool things

      I agree, I’m not sure why the Chinese version of the Corsair would get what appears to be some next generation styling touches that advance the design language another evolutionary step beyond the refreshed domestic model. The tailgate design and lighting are very attractive on this one. And I suspect the ’24 Nautilus, to be built in China, will bear some resemblance. Will Lincoln supply the North American market with Chinese built Nautilus models in ’24?

        I’m expecting this to eventually happen.

    Ford sells more Lincoln’s in China’s than the USA, so new products are more important for China. Here , all we get are 4 SUVs with the exact styling , just 4 different sizes, and also fewer but very boring colors, and the interiors here are bland. Why cant we integrate the touchscreens like Kia does on the new Sportage? Ford screens look like they were added at the dealership . Hate how they stick up and out like it was an afterthought.

      Although I agree we should get the styling changes, I do not agree that the interiors here are “bland.” That’s just ridiculous.

      And no, the screens do not “stick up and out.” If you sit in a Lincoln, you’ll immediately see that the large screen DOES NOT get in the way in ANY capacity.

    Who cares about what China is getting!! I placed my 2023 Corsair order in late October, 2022 and they haven’t said a word other than to acknowledge my order. Why hasn’t my car been produced, or at least started?? I’m getting close to saying “screw it” and going to Audi or BMW for a 2023 SUV. This is ridiculous!
