2023 Lincoln Corsair Production Increased Slightly In June

Following a software-related issue discovered during early in the process, production of both the refreshed 2023 Ford Escape and 2023 Lincoln Corsair crossovers at the Louisville Assembly plant got off to a bit of a slow start, but each has improved exponentially over the past few months. That trend also continued in the month of June, as 2023 Lincoln Corsair production was once again better than the prior month – albeit not by much – according to Ford’s latest sales report.

After building zero units in February and just 159 in March, Corsair production ramped up to 2,513 units in April, followed by 3,917 in May.  In June, The Blue Oval managed to build a grand total of 4,063 units – an improvement of 146 crossovers, or nearly four percent. However, Corsair production still lags far behind the Escape, which saw 18,756 units get produced in June. Year to date, FoMoCo has built just 11,018 2023 Lincoln Corsair models, versus 66,897 Escapes.

In any event, this marks a big turnaround for the luxurious crossover after Ford paused both Escape and Corsair production in February after discovering a quality issue that we later learned was software-related, and that shutdown was eventually extended all the way into March. Turns out, the problem was traced back to the instrument cluster, and a re-flash corrected it, allowing The Blue Oval to resume production with no further issues.

Aside from revised exterior styling, the 2023 Lincoln Corsair also received some interior updates with a 13.2 inch infotainment screen running Sync 4, a pair of new design themes, and the addition of the hands-free highway driving assist feature formerly known as ActiveGlide, which is now called BlueCruise.
