    2020 Lincoln Corsair Is Officially Happening

    The 2020 Lincoln Corsair Is Officially Happening

    Last June, we heard reports that the Corsair name would not, in fact, be used as part of an Edsel rebirth, but for the Lincoln MKC crossover replacement instead. But as far as Lincoln crossovers and SUVs have been going, the car might actually turn out to look pretty good.

    All Lincoln offered today, ahead of the 2020 Corsair’s official debut at the New York International Auto Show next month, is a shadowy teaser of its new crossover, on which I have taken the liberty to brighten up as much as possible so you can see it. Lincoln notes that the pre-production model is pictured here.

    Official details haven’t yet surfaced, but I’m glad that the old MKC name is being put to rest. The Corsair will join the new range of Lincolns with the good and memorable names like Aviator and Nautilus.

    Can't see very many details, so it's hard to be critical.

    However, if it follows (or even slightly advances) the current Lincoln design direction, it should be an attractive product.

    Lincoln's latest design trend is a bit restrained, but undoubtedly elegant and expensive-looking. Whenever a tasteful design originates with a large vehicle, and is then applied to a smaller product, something often gets lost in translation. However, as the current MKC fares pretty well and hasn't been hampered in this regard, I'm not worried.

    Here's hoping it looks great and garners lots of attention for Lincoln!

    It had better be a drastic improvement over the MKC.
    That car was one of the more lackluster vehicles I've driven in recent years.
    A far less expensive Subaru Forester was better in just about every way. The Lincoln had more motor, but that was about it.

    As I recall, several on GMI were drooling over the MKC and its superiority over the Cadillac offerings... However, it does appear that Lincoln is finding its mojo, so I do hope it is a fantastic vehicle. The better Lincoln becomes, the better it forces Cadillac to become.

    No way clearly Lincoln completes with Buick.

    I still foresee a Ford Everest type in the works. Basically an (desized Acadia style) Explorer when the Current Explorer goes BOF in 2020. Corsair would be the Lincoln Equivalent.

    Lincoln isn't on Cadillac's radar too far down

    That's because it's a rebadged Escape and the Escape is a lackluster vehicle. Pig + Lipstick

    Ok...you know doggone well that I didn't say Kia was the epitome of luxury, what i said was that the interior of the K900 had a better designed interior of the CT6, nice try tho.

    And FFS, the MKC isn't/wasn't a rebadge of the Escape, shares platform/architecture...yes

    Let me break it down because it seems to have Escaped you on what a re-badge is/isn't:

    Re-badge:
    Gen 1 escalade & GMC Yukon Denali
    98 Olds Cutlass / Chevy Malibu
    Chevrolet SS / Holden Commodore (debatable since it the Holden isn't offered in US but basic principle is the same)
    Lincoln Mark LT - Ford F150

    Platform sharing:
    Chevrolet Traverse / Buick Enclave
    Chevrolet Impala / Buick Lacrosse
    Cadillac ATS / Chevy Camaro
    MKC/Corsair / Ford Escape
