In recent months, a large number of FoMoCo models have dropped the SecuriCode Keyless Entry Keypad from their respective lineups, a list that includes the 2024 Ford Bronco, 2024 Ford Maverick pickup, 2024 Ford Bronco Sport crossover, 2023 Ford Edge crossover, and the 2024 Ford Escape crossover. However, at least three of those models – the Maverick, Bronco Sport, and Escape – will still offer this feature as a dealer-installed option called the Illuminated Door Entry Keypad, which costs $350. Regardless, while it certainly seems like the SecuriCode keypad is being phased out entirely, it will at least still be present on the 2024 Lincoln Corsair.
This is certainly an interesting development given the fact that the Corsair is essentially a gussied-up, more luxurious version of the Escape, though that may also play a role in FoMoCo’s decision to keep that feature in this case. The SecuriCode keypad remains standard equipment on the 2024 Lincoln Corsair as well, meaning that customers won’t have to pony up extra money to get it, too.
The compact luxury crossover was treated to a refresh for the 2023 model year, one that brought about revised exterior and interior styling, along with new tech features such as BlueCruise, a 13.2-inch infotainment screen running Sync 4, a redesigned instrument cluster, new Smoked Truffle and Eternal Red interior themes, and over-the-air update capability.
In terms of powertrains, not much changed with the Corsair’s refresh, as it’s still equipped with the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine as standard equipment, while the 2.5L plug-in hybrid setup is present in the Corsair Grand Touring. However, as has been the norm lately, all of these updates came at a cost, as pricing for the luxurious compact crossover increased across the board.
