Vehicle Preview: 2020 Lincoln Corsair
Available at dealerships this fall, the 2020 Lincoln Corsair boasts sleekly luxurious features, cutting-edge tech and smooth power — making it a formidable entry in the highly competitive compact luxury SUV class.
Performance and powertrains
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair is designed to perform with power and confidence. Its standard engine is a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that puts out 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. For boosted capability, there’s an available 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder engine that makes 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission. The Lincoln Corsair combines all this power with smooth and agile handling. An all-new rear integral bush suspension makes for a smooth ride, and available intelligent all-wheel drive provides sure-footed control. The Lincoln Corsair also offers five signature drive modes — Normal, Excite, Slippery, Deep Conditions and Conserve — so you can customize the vehicle’s performance depending on road conditions and your preferences.
The cabin of the 2020 Lincoln Corsair prioritizes calming sophistication. Active Noise Control tech and a dual-wall dashboard keep noise at bay and create a relaxing atmosphere. Symphonic chimes offer a sophisticated alternative to driver alerts. Three rich new color schemes — Beyond Blue, Cashew and Medium Slate — add luxurious looks. Up front, the Lincoln Corsair provides available Perfect Position seating, with 24-way power adjustability, lumbar support and a massage function. In the second row, sliding seats provide generous legroom, with 60/40 split-folding functionality for extra versatility. Wireless charging and multiple USB outlets are available to keep everyone’s devices powered up.
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair comes packed with visionary technologies to make your ride connected and convenient. Using phone-as-key tech through your Lincoln Way™ app, you can lock and unlock the vehicle, operate the liftgate, start the engine and automatically adjust up to 80 features. If your phone is lost or the battery goes dead, you can still enter and start the vehicle via a backup code. The Lincoln Corsair’s infotainment tech includes an 8-inch touch screen that runs SYNC® 3 AppLink™ to easily link your smartphone. Standard Wi-Fi keeps all your passengers connected, and the available 14-speaker Revel™ audio system delivers premium sound for everyone. The Lincoln Corsair doesn’t skimp on safety features, either. The standard Co-Pilot360™ package includes Pre-Collision Assist with automatic braking, a Lane-Keeping System, and a Blind Spot Detection system. Upgrade to Co-Pilot360™ Plus for options like adaptive cruise control and Active Park Assist Plus, which automatically maneuvers the vehicle into parking spaces.
Behind the wheel of the refined yet fun-to-drive 2020 Lincoln Corsair, you’ll reap the benefits of thoughtful design, responsive power and intuitive, innovative technologies.
