Since its launch in 2019 as a 2020 model year vehicle, the Lincoln Corsair has built on the foundations established the MKC to become an important staple in the luxury brand’s lineup. As Ford Authority previously reported, the compact luxury crossover has earned some kudos for its quality and owners seem to like the Corsair as well. For 2023, the lineup has been refreshed. But we wanted to talk about a feature on the 2020-2022 models before those vehicles become officially outdated.
Pop open the center armrest of the Lincoln Corsair to find the wireless phone charger, which is situated along the side closest to the driver’s seat. A strong bracket serves as a fixed holder for a smartphone to keep it in place against the inductive charging pad, ensuring that it stays in the optimal position to charge even while driving. It’s a small touch, but a thoughtful one that keeps cell phones from sliding around while the vehicle is in motion – and out of sight to mitigate potential distraction. This is a feature that faces extinction soon, as the refreshed Corsair relocates the wireless charger in front of the center console, underneath the center stack.
As a reminder, the 2023 model year brought quite a few changes to the luxury crossover, including revised exterior styling, an updated interior, and the deletion of optional turbocharged Ford 2.3L I4 EcoBoost engine, meaning the 2.0L EcoBoost is the only engine option available for the luxury crossover outside of the Grant Touring. It also features standard tech such as Sync 4 and the optional Lincoln ActiveGlide as part of the Collection III equipment bundle that is available for Standard, Reserve and Ground Touring models.
The luxury crossover is built at the Louisville Assembly plant and is underpinned by the Ford C2 platform. As Ford Authority previously reported, initial production will now begin six weeks later than initially projected, and will now kick off in mid-December.
