Ford Authority already spotted a real-life Corsair wearing Whisper Blue at the 2022 North American International Auto Show, giving us a good look at the soft blue hue under the showroom lights.

As a reminder, the 2023 model year brought about quite a few notable changes and updates to the luxury crossover. This includes 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.

The standard engine for the 2023 Lincoln Corsair is the turbocharged 2.0L I4 EcoBoost engine, which produces 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, and is offered on the Standard and Reserve trim levels. This engine is mated to Ford’s eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.5L I4 hybrid setup produces 266 horsepower combined, mated to Ford’s constant velocity transmission (CVT), is exclusively offered in the Grand Touring trim level.

    Another dull color to add to all the other boring colors. The model year is almost 1/2 over and they have produced only 366 retail orders. I gave up after 6 months and moved to Hyundai , better quality, same price and better features and warranty. After40 years, never buying a low quality , ugly Ford or Lincoln product again

      As long as you don’t mind them getting stolen easily or catching fire.

      Hyundai absolutely sucks an pales in tech to new Corair. My aunt just got one prob. Absolutely loves it. Dumped her drab , slow Acura .

  2. Robert T Arthur

    Looks like just another boring shade of gray.

  3. Mike says...

    This color tests well.
    As for the critics above… your black and white and silver is soo boring.
    Now all we need is to see some product on the road before it is to late to care one way or the other!

    Shame the blue interior choice was removed to complement it.

    Hyundai and Kia, for those that can’t afford top buy a real vehicle. Same people that buy that junk are the ones that walked into the Yugo dealership and said, wow, what a great warranty, LOL. Ever see a Hyundai or Kia parked outside a any pro athletes house? Nope. Ever see a Kia parked in the driveway of any LPGA tour players house….nope, for those that are not familiar with LGPA, Kia is a big sponsor. It all about impressions and nothing says I live pay check to pay check more than owning a Hyundai or Kia. Lincoln SUV is the sexiest SUV on the road.
