2023 Lincoln Corsair Facelift – Better Looks and More tech Premium Small SUV. The 2023 Lincoln Corsair, the company’s top seller, will receive updated styling inside and out. On the outside, the front grille is now taller and the running lights have been updated to form the shape of wings. Lincoln is adding two new exterior paint options, Crystal Red and Whisper Blue.
The interior of the 2023 Corsair is also being updated. The center screen is increasing in size to 13.2-inches and will now feature Sync 4 technology. The 12.3-inch digital dashboard comes as standard technology. Lincoln is adding two new interior color themes. The new Smoked Truffle interior features a combination of neutral tans and browns. Eternal Red offers a more colorful option, pairing red leather on the seats and dash with gray and black accents throughout the interior.
Ford recently announced the upated 1.2 version of BlueCruise, which is branded as ActiveGlide for Lincoln. Appearing first in the Navigator, the hands-free driving system will be added to the Corsair in 2023. ActiveGlide 1.2 only works on premapped 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 is moving faster in a different lane. The system is not able to perform all functions of driving, and the driver is still required to remain alert and ready to take over at any time.
Lincoln is dropping the 2.3-liter turbocharged engine option for 2023. That leaves the choice of the base 2.0-liter engine or the 2.5-liter plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version. The 2.3-liter engine shouldn’t really be missed, as our testing showed nearly equivalent performance sticking with the 2.0. Choosing the base 2.0-liter will provide 250 horsepower, while upgrading to the top-of-the-line plug-in-hybrid Grand Touring nets a total of 266 horsepower. The 2.0-liter turbo option tested with AWD provided 30 mpg in our 200-mile highway fuel-economy test. We have not 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 $2110, starting at $39,885 for the base front-wheel-drive model. All-wheel drive is an aditional $2300. The 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 beginning early 2023.
