Re: Next Gen MKC?

Really nice to have options!

Although I'm clearly focused on the Aviator as my MKZ-replacement for early next year, good to know that there is a more budget-friendly but still interesting alternative in the Corsair.

Current rides:
2017 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Black Label
2017 Audi Q7 Prestige

I'm 99.9% sure that's the Corsair.

I'm 100% sure it's the Corsair. Dash to axle ratio is a dead giveaway. Also check out the placement of the mirrors and the difference in front window framing. Good find!!

Re: Next Gen MKC?

Looking at the length of the hood, it's clearly the Corsair.

What a great sign though that although this will be Lincoln's entry level SUV, it looks basically just as good as the Aviator...

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!

9:45 am EST press conference tomorrow, I'll be there!



Embargo should break by then though.


Last minute things to ponder..
-will the Corsair, the entry level Lincoln, get the 30 way seats?
-will the PHEV be called the Grand Touring?
-what will the Black Label themes be? I say Chalet for sure (its on all others) and Destination..? There's always one unique one per model, what color scheme will that be...?
