2020 Lincoln Corsair with less camo

Recommended Posts

Looks bigger than MKC... overall I like what I see

Very Large. I think it's a 7-seater version from the Escape 3-row. Probably that rumor about a crossover below the MKC might be right. Lincoln seems to be increasing the size of the MKC to open up space to a subcompact crossover

A touch Aviator (to die it in, but really Land Rover), from the side.  I do agree with the "sharper" comment, if the front top hood line where a bit taller and more upright it would help too give it a tie to the bigger. Overall I really like what I see.

Not sure about 7 seats but definitely longer

I do not think there will ever be a 3 row version. It's bigger to address the number 1 complaint (Escape too) and that is rear seat legroom.

Looks like they worked on the proportions more, which was also an issue with MKC, especially compared to the concept, which was very sleek looking vs. the more frumpy/upright production model.

This looks really good. I agree the front needs to be more upright. Maybe a larger grille, but overall I like it. 

It does look much larger than the previous version, and while I’m sure it is a few inches longer, most of it is probably an optical illusion due to the blacked out pillar and sloping roof line. I bet if you just blacked out the same area on the current mkc, it’s look a lot larger

I agree
I thought the front was too low for the rest of the body. It seems a little disproportionate too. The hood could be taller and the grille larger

Told you guys it would be really close to a mini Aviator. I really LOVE the looks of this and the Aviator. I'm sooo tempted to buy one even though I can't really afford another new vehicle at this time. Those proportions..

Really nice. I agree that the front end needs to be taller to resemble the Aviator. The rear spoiler on the roof needs a different paint treatment. Lincoln´s designers have had to continue with the sloping line that come from the upper side of the windows and continue it , downward, to the base of the spolier, not upper to the spoiler. That is a small detail that could change the design a lot.  The same with the chrome trim arroud the windows... Is too expensive to make the chrome trim complete arround the roof spoiler and at the base of the rear window on the hatch? That could give a better finished look to the vehicle.

 

But, aside of those small critics, is a very good designed vehicle. And will sell better tha the smaller MKC.  The interior?    I´m curious... 

When it will debut?

Production starts in August so sometime soon. Probably New York Auto Show.

I find that kinda hard to believe-I'm 6'2 and the rear legroom on the Escape isn't bad for what it is. I have issues with the front passenger space vs the old gen though.

Strange that we haven't seen even a concept version yet and production is 6 months away.   I understand they're probably waiting for New York but this is so out of character for Ford lately.   They normally show the concept a year or more out.   I actually like it.

The new CRV has more rear legroom, but it is so cheap and plasticy back there, it feels like riding in a full-sized Playmobile.

Maybe they are reading the posts here, and actually acting upon our logic!..............(Thunderbird...Thunderbird...Thunderbid!)

I read where they are also having issues with the new 1.5 liter engine.  Piston scoring going on.  The most plausible theory is that they didn't aim the injectors right and they are washing the oil off the sidewalls.

Try putting a car seat back there. It's just as cramped as a Focus.

I think someone said it'd basically be a mini Aviator inside, which makes sense.

Well, we had Nautilus launching and Aviator concept last year, so they likely figured it'd be crowded to show a Corsair concept last year, and this year, it's easier to just show the production model.

They do share a floor pan.

But that's my point. It gained size to address that problem, not to add a third row. Cool side effect, there's now room for the Maverick to slot in below it.

One other thing I noticed about the pictures.  There are no roof rails going across it.  Not sure if Lincoln is dropping them.  But it gives it a different look.  Personally I like them on my Escape, albeit they don't server any function for me.
