2023 Lincoln Corsair gets a facelift, hands-free tech and a discontinued engine
- The 2023 Lincoln Corsair gets updated styling, sporting a taller grille and an updated interior with a 13.2-inch screen.
- The newly updated ActiveGlide system, Lincoln’s equivalent of the Ford SuperCruise hands-free driving system, is added for the 2023 model year.
- Pricing for the Corsair will start at $39,885 for the base, front-drive model. The new models will start arriving at dealerships in early 2023.
After dropping its lackluster 2.3-liter turbocharged engine option, the company’s top-selling 2023 Lincoln Corsair will receive updated styling inside and out. On the outside, the front grille is now taller and the position lamps have been updated to form the shape of fenders. Lincoln adds two new exterior paint options, Crystal Red and Whisper Blue.
The interior of the Corsair 2023 is also updated. The central screen increases to 13.2 inches and will now feature Sync 4 technology. The 12.3 inch digital instrument panel is part of the standard technology. Lincoln adds two new interior color themes. The new Smoked Truffle interior features a combination of tans and neutral browns. Eternal Red offers a more colorful option, pairing red leather on the seats and dashboard with gray and black accents throughout the interior.
Ford recently announced the updated version 1.2 of BlueCruise, which carries the ActiveGlide branding for Lincoln. First appearing in the Navigator, the hands-free driving system will be added to the Corsair in 2023. ActiveGlide 1.2 only works on pre-mapped roads and only up to 80 miles per hour. The updated system will be able to perform hands-free lane changes and can suggest a lane change if the car senses traffic moving faster in a different lane. The system is not able to perform all driving functions, and the driver must always remain alert and ready to take over at all times.
Lincoln is dropping the 2.3-liter turbocharged engine option for 2023. This leaves the choice between the base 2.0-liter engine or the 2.5-liter plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version. The 2.3-litre engine shouldn’t really be missed, as our tests showed nearly equivalent performance with the 2.0. Choosing the base 2.0-liter will deliver 250 horsepower, while the upgrade to the top-of-the-line plug-in hybrid Grand Touring generates a total of 266 horsepower. The 2.0-liter turbo option tested with AWD delivered 30 mpg in our 200-mile highway fuel economy test. We haven’t tested the PHEV version yet, but the EPA says it will provide 28 miles of electric range.
Pricing for the 2023 Corsair will increase by $2,110, from $39,885 for the base, front-drive model. All-wheel drive is an extra $2300. Black Label trim is still not available on the Corsair, making the Grand Touring, starting at $54,580, the highest trim available. The new Corsair will begin arriving in dealerships from early 2023.
