The Lincoln Corsair 2023 delivers the brand’s best-selling fresh face and more technology. The updated crossover goes on sale in early 2023.
The most significant upgrade to the Corsair 2023 is on the inside. Instead of a small 8.0-inch screen that sticks out from the center of the dashboard, there is now a 13.2-inch screen there. It supports the automaker’s Sync 4 software. There’s still a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
The bottom of the center instrument cluster has minor tweaks. It received a revised and simplified layout, and there are backlit applications available there.
The Corsair 2023 is available with the advanced hands-free ActiveGlide 1.2 driver assistance system. It can keep the vehicle on track at up to 80 miles per hour (129 kilometers per hour). By tapping the turn signal rod, the technology can make automatic lane changes. When driving near other vehicles, the system moves away slightly to create more space between them. The blind spot assist nudges the steering wheel to prevent the driver from blending into the vehicle if the person ignores warnings from the blind spot information system.
Another new feature is the optional Auto Air Refresh system. It uses a laser sensor to mix air from outside and inside the vehicle.
The Corsair cabin is available in two new colors. Smoked Truffle is a cream color. Eternal Red is a deep dark red color.
The updated Corsair has a larger grille. Reserve trim gives the interior a glossy black finish, but the Grand Touring has an engine look that Lincoln calls “sunset satin metal.”
There are also two new exterior colors for the updated crossover: Crystal Red and Whisper Blue.
The Corsair 2023 is available with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 250 horsepower (186 kilowatts) or a 2.5-liter plug-in hybrid with a total output of 266 hp (198 kW). The turbocharged 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder is no longer available. Depending on trim and configuration the front or all-wheel-drive powertrain is available.
