We know that you’ve probably seen the Corsair before – it was released earlier this year, but new for 2020 is the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring. This Corsair itself is aimed at the younger crowd that don’t need three rows of seating and desire a little more space and now the Grand Touring trim steps in to provide even better fuel economy for those that are more green conscious.
It might not be quite as powerful as the non-hybrid, but the 2.5-liter gasoline engine and two electric motors are said to produce somewhere in the neighborhood of 266 horsepower and Lincoln is “anticipating” a range of 25 miles. AWD also comes courtesy of the electric motors as they exclusively power the rear wheels while the engine handles the duty of driving the front wheels.
In terms of appearance, the Corsair Grand Touring doesn’t stand out my way of any real unique aestetic features, so aside from the exterior badges and the ability to drive silently for a limited period of time, there’s not much else to report. However, we’ve created a full gallery and organized it into our awesome slider above and the article below. Go ahead and browse through the images to learn more about the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring.
Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Lincoln Corsair
Lincoln had to replace the old MKC with something, and this is it – the Lincoln Corsair. It’s the brand’s smallest SUV offering, and it’s based on the Ford Escape. As a matter of fact, it’s really nothing more than a rebadged, glorified Escape but that’s a conversation for another time. The name, however, holds some significance as it was used way back in the late ‘50s under the Edsel brand name. At this point, the name probably has a much better chance of surviving in the long term, and it’s the look you see here that’s going to give it the extra grunt it needs to make a damaging blow to the compact premium crossover segment. Since we like the look of the Corsair so much, we decided to make it our wallpaper of the day.

2020 Lincoln Corsair
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair is a compact crossover and the company’s smallest SUV yet. The Corsair replaces the MKC, a crossover sold between 2014 and 2019 and also based on the Ford Escape. Unveiled at the 2019 New York Auto Show, the Corsair revived a nameplate that Ford used for the first time in 1958 for the Edsel brand. The Corsair is the third new nameplate introduced by Lincoln in the last two years following a decision to phase out its alphanumerical naming scheme.
Just like the MKC, the Corsair is based on the Ford Escape. But while the MKC was built on the old platform, the Corsair shares underpinnings with the fourth-generation, 2020 Ford Escape, also unveiled at the 2019 New York Auto Show. The redesign brings new technology and features as well as revised four-cylinder engines and eight-speed automatic transmission.
