2024 Lincoln Corsair Retains SecuriCode Keyless Entry Keypad

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.

    Why is Ford trying to get rid of this feature, I and a lot of people love it. It’s not the first time they tried to get rid of it. Please leave the Lincoln’s alone.

    Please tell me why I need this useless $350 keypad, you’re paying for it as a hidden charge. Remote fob keyless entry, keyless start and remote start. I must have been out with covid when the class was given.

      It is not useless to people going to the nudist beach. Where they could stick the fob?

  3. Joe

    Good feature to have if you don’t have your key and just want to get into the vehicle when it was locked.

  4. Jim O

    Not useless at all. I have always used it. Sometimes when just working around the house I want to go get something from the car, or put something in the car and I don’t have my keys with me. Its one of those little things that to me make Fords special

  5. MJ

    Now it they could only offer a regular hybrid and not the low mpg crappy 2 L Ecoboost engine. Plus the grille is too large for the vehicle and they offer such boring colors year after year. Also, do Ford designers ever look at other brands that integrate the touch screen with the instrument cluster? Looks so much better than the ugly screen they drop in the top center by itself . I think I have bought my last overpriced ugly Ford product. The employee discount is not a discount when they are $5000 more than other better quality brands .

    I prefer having the option. Note, in the Escapes, the Securicode Option isn’t as clean as it used to be…sounds like it will have physical buttons. I wish Ford would offer more of these al-a-carte options so people who order their cars from the factory can get really what they want. If they want the Dealer Stock to not have this option to cut costs, by all means go for it

  7. Edward

    I love SecuriCode. I use it regularly on my Corsair Grand Touring. Best car I’ve ever owned, and far nicer than a comparable Audi or Lexus.

  8. 1970Mav

    I have it on my 2017 expedition and use it when I need to load things without going in the house to get my key.
    One thing I don’t understand is…why are there 10 numbers but only 5 buttons? The code 13579 is the same as 24680, 14579, 13679, etc.

  9. Dave

    I love the feature on my F-150. Use it regularly. Will even lock my keys inside when I leave the truck for activities where I don’t want to carry them – cycling, running, hiking, etc.
