Re: Next Gen MKC?
So now that the 2020 Escape has debuted, we might be able to make better guesses on the upcoming Corsair. Since the base engine will be the 250-hp 2.0T from the Escape, the (hopefully) 300-hp 2.3T will continue an option as we seen in the leaked sheet.
The mystery is the PHEV. The Escape is at 209 hp but restricted to FWD yet we know the Corsair PHEV will be AWD only with another electric motor at the rear. How much added power can this provide? Can this unique PHEV version hit 300-hp?! I can’t really see the Corsair PHEV offering less than the 250-hp of the base engine, but unsure how much more boost it could bring?
So I’m thinking the Corsair PHEV will indeed be marketed as the Grand Touring like the Aviator and will provide much added performance with improved efficiency. And, oddly, in all electric mode, will be RWD too, like some Teslas!
