The 2021 Lincoln Corsair is sold in three versions: Standard, Reserve, and Grand Touring. The Corsair
Standard ($36,940 FWD, $39,140 AWD) is generously equipped. It comes with 18-in alloy wheels, active noise cancellation, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power liftgate, a 10-speaker audio, and an 8-in
SYNC 3 infotainment system with Android Auto and
Apple CarPlay. On the safety front, the Corsair Standard has Lincoln Co-Pilot360, which gives you a
forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, plus lane-keeping assist and blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. With the Corsair
Reserve ($43,885 FWD, $46,085 AWD), you get all that the Standard model has plus leather seats, wood interior trim, a panoramic moonroof, 14-speaker Revel premium audio, a hands-free power liftgate, ambient interior lighting and 19-in alloy wheels. It also comes with Lincoln Co-Pilot 360 Plus, a safety suite that includes a front sensing system, a 360-degree camera, evasive steer assist, reverse brake assist,
active park assist, and
adaptive cruise control with lane centering, speed sign recognition, and traffic jam assist. The 2.3-liter engine and adaptive suspension also are available in the Corsair Reserve, as are active LED headlights (that point into corners), Phone As A Key, wireless smartphone charging, and 24-way power seats. Because the new Lincoln Corsair
Grand Touring plug-in hybrid ($51,225) is based on the Corsair Reserve, it’s luxuriously equipped. Extras unique to the Corsair PHEV include the 2.5-liter gasoline engine and two electric motors, plus a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The PHEV Corsair also has two extra selectable drive modes: Preserve EV (which charges the battery and keeps it charges for use later) and Pure EV mode (which keeps the Corsair in electric mode as often as possible). The Corsair Grand Touring also benefits from a feature that it allows it to be flat-towed behind a motorhome, and an audible signal to warn pedestrians of the vehicle’s presence during otherwise silent all-electric motoring.
The Lincoln Corsair has been given a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It has also been named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The base Corsair comes with Lincoln Co-Pilot360, a safety suite that includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a lane-keeping alert, lane-keep assist, and a blind-spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert. Co-Pilot360 Plus, on the Reserve, adds adaptive stop-and-go cruise control with lane centering and speed sign recognition, plus a 360-degree camera, reverse brake assist and an active parking program.
2021 Lincoln Corsair vs the competition
2020 Cadillac XT4 — The Corsair’s top domestic competition. The Cadillac
XT4 has a slightly lower starting price and better rear legroom. Both models are built in the U.S.
2020 Acura RDX – Like the Corsair, the
RDX counts sharp styling, strong performance, and a high-tech interior among its many virtues. They’re also priced similarly.
2020 Audi Q5 – This German is similarly priced and luxurious, while also being powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. Both these premium compact SUVs look sharp, too.
2020 Infiniti QX50 – The handsome
QX50 has a lot to offer with its roomy interior and good handling manners. We prefer the power delivery of the Corsair powerplants to that of Infiniti’s innovative variable-compression engine.
Used Lincoln MKX—Want something a little bigger? Consider a used Lincoln
MKX. They’re attractively priced on the used market, and the top models are quite luxurious.
