Lincoln Corsair Production Decreased In April 2024

The refreshed 2023 Lincoln Corsair got off to a slow start as Ford worked to resolve an issue with the crossover’s digital instrument cluster discovered during quality checks, but once that was fixed, output at the Louisville Assembly plant increased quickly. This trend continued into the first quarter of 2024 as well, with Lincoln Corsair production increasing with the passing of each month over that time frame, but that streak came to an end in April.

According to Ford’s April sales report, Lincoln Corsair production at the Louisville plant totaled 2,060 units, which is a substantial 1,460 units or 41 percent less than March’s total of 3,520. Production of the Ford Escape – the mainstream counterpart to the Lincoln Corsair – also declined last month, but at a lesser rate of 2,580 units, or just 14 percent, closing out the month at 15,788 units.

Prior to April, Lincoln Corsair production had been on the rise since remaining largely flat in January at 3,035 units, which was an ever-so-slight decrease of just 28 units month-over-month, or a mere 0.9 percent versus December. In February, Lincoln Corsair production totaled 3,151 units, which was 116 units or around 3.8 percent higher than January’s total, and in March, output increased by 369 units or nearly 12 percent to the previously-mentioned total of 3,520.

In terms of updates, the 2024 Lincoln Corsair carried over completely unchanged for the new model year after the luxurious crossover was treated to its mid-cycle refresh in 2023, and it even retained its factory-installed SecuriCode keyless entry keypad, which wasn’t the case with the Escape, as that feature is now a dealer-installed option. Other than the addition of Race Red to its available exterior color lineup and the deletion of Cinnabar Red Metallic and Atlas Blue Metallic, the 2024 Escape remains mostly unchanged as well, however.

    Not surprising. If you track inventory numbers, as I do, you will see that all Lincolns are not selling. In fact, if they kept producing at those numbers, they would flood an already glutted market. According to what I see, the 2025 Corsair is to begin production in mid September, which means we should see prices and details in the next 30 days.
