Back in October 2022, Ford Authority spotted a real-life 2023 Lincoln Corsair wearing Crystal Red Metallic, showing off the deep reddish-purple hue in daylight.

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 I4 EcoBoost engine. The veil was pulled off in mid-September, debuting the luxury crossover with Sync 4 and ActiveGlide, the marque’s semi-autonomous driver assist technology. In fact, buyers of a 2023 Corsair will automatically receive a two-year subscription to ActiveGlide for vehicles outfitted with the tech.

It’s worth noting that the Lincoln Corsair has received plenty of accolades recently, including being named one of the best luxury crossovers on the market, and was recently added to Consumer Reports list of recommended vehicles.
