Ford Authority photographers have spied several examples of the refreshed 2023 Lincoln Corsair out and about. They recently spotted a Grand Touring at the 2022 North American International Auto Show, and then a Corsair Reserve with the Jet Appearance Package a short time later. Now, they’ve captured yet another example, this time sporting a coat of Crystal Red.
As a reminder, Crystal Red Metallic Premium Colorant is a brand new color for the Corsair’s 2023 model year, and it costs $750 extra. What’s interesting is that this particular model is outfitted with Reserve trim, but it rolls on a set of 18-inch alloy wheels that are included on the base Standard trim, so it’s not clear why these wheels are on this particular Corsair.
The 2023 Lincoln Corsair Reserve features quite a few premium options that set it apart from the other trim levels. Opting for a reserve model adds things like bright roof rack side rails for a classier look, Jeweled LED headlamps with dynamic bending and speed-dependent lighting and a manual tilt telescoping steering column.
The refreshed 2023 Lincoln Corsair brought quite a few changes to the luxury crossover, such as revised exterior styling, an updated interior, and the deletion of optional turbocharged Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engine. The veil was pulled off in mid-September. It’s outfitted with Sync 4 and ActiveGlide, the marque’s semi-autonomous driver assist technology.
Customers who wish to acquire a new Lincoln Corsair can expect to shell out $43,075 for the Reserve trim level, thanks to a recent price increase that was applied to Corsair models across the board. However, production of the luxury SUV at the Louisville Assembly plant in Kentucky will begin six weeks later than initial expectations, with the Corsair beginning to roll off the assembly line on December 12th, 2022.
