The Corsair completes Lincoln’s revamped lineup.
Lincoln announced pricing for the 2020 Corsair Friday, starting at just under $34,000 when the new crossover goes on sale this fall. The front-wheel drive version will start at $36,940 including destination. All-wheel drive costs a whopping $3,600 more, starting at $40,540.
On base price alone, the 2020 Lincoln Corsair is $1,950 more than the MKC it replaces. It comes in two trims: Standard and Reserve. Lincoln will eventually offer a hybrid version, as its platform is based on the new Ford Escape. However, it will not be available at launch, and Lincoln has not announced official pricing.
As with the MKC, there are two available engines for the 2020 Lincoln Corsair. The first is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, making 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The second is a larger 2.3-liter unit making 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come mated to an eight-speed automatic transmissions. All-wheel drive is also available with both engines.
After the likes of the Navigator SUV, Nautilus and Aviator, the Corsair rounds out Lincoln’s new offerings. It also moves the brand away from its old alphabetic naming convention in favor of using actual names. As it happens, the only remaining “old” model is the MKZ, which Lincoln will reportedly replace with the Zephyr name in the near future.
The old MKC was Lincoln’s second best-selling model behind the Nautilus. It is also the first model Lincoln will build in China, where it is the brand’s most popular model.
