2023 Lincoln Corsair

The 2023 Lincoln Corsair represents the luxury crossover’s fourth model year of its first generation. It was introduced as a direct replacement to the Lincoln MKC, and features quite a few changes and updates over the 2022 model year, including a slew of updated driver assist technologies and premium technologies.

Model Line

The 2023 Lincoln Corsair is offered in three trim levels:

  • Standard
  • Reserve
  • Grand Touring

Changes and Updates

The 2023 Lincoln Corsair drops the optional turbocharged 2.3L I4 EcoBoost engine, as Ford Authority first reported in August 2022. This boosted four cylinder is rated at 295 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, and was optional on the Corsair Reserve, but its availability was limited to the optional $2,500 Sport Package.

The 2023 Lincoln Corsair gains the new Jet Appearance Package, which costs $2,000 and adds a handful of dark-themed exterior accents to the luxury crossover, including 20-inch Black aluminum wheels; Pillar Black exterior elements such as a fender badge, grille, door frame molding; along with body-color exterior elements like the front and rear bumper covers, lower fascia, wheel lips and lower door cladding. The Jet Appearance Package can be outfitted on either the Standard or Reserve trim, and is not offered on the range-topping Grand Touring trim.

Inside, the 2023 Lincoln Corsair gains an upgrade to its center stack screen, which has been expanded to 13.2 inches and boasts Sync 4 technology. The luxury crossover has also gained an optional backlit applique that displays a starlight pattern through perforations, meant to evoke Lincoln’s signature constellation pattern.

Outside, the 2023 Lincoln Corsair gains a larger grille over its 2022 model year counterpart, which now extends all the way down to the lower air intake. Note that the 2023 Corsair also features wing-shaped daytime running lamps. The Corsair Grand Touring, meanwhile, gains a sundown satin metallic foil grille with blue accents, granting a warmer tone to the applique.

Perhaps the most significant change to the 2023 Lincoln Corsair is the addition of the luxury brand’s semi-autonomous driver assistant, ActiveGlide. ActiveGlide includes Lane Change Assist, Predictive Speed Assist, Intersection Assist 2.0 and In-Lane Repositioning, allowing for hands-free driving on applicable highways. Buyers will receive a complimentary two-year subscription to the service upon purchase of the 2023 Corsair, after which a paid subscription will be required if customers wish to keep ActiveGlide online.
