We obtained a road test spy shot of Lincoln Corsair China version from relevant channels. Lincoln Corsair is positioned as a mid-size SUV , it is the successor to the Lincoln MKC. According to previous reports, Lincoln Corsair will be officially put into production in China in 2019, becoming the first made-in-China Lincoln model.
From the only spy shot, the test car covers the camouflage pattern material commonly used by Changan-Ford’s test vehicles. From the details of body contour, tailgate panel shape, side window shape, exhaust position and rear wiper, it is not difficult to judge that it is right the Lincoln Corsair.
Compared with the overseas version that has been released before, the test car uses a smaller rim, and the actual shape of the exhaust is slightly different. However, we expect that China version will be highly restored to the overseas version, including the bar-style taillights, bright black body pillars, floating roof, and the latest family-style front face and more luxurious interiors.
In terms of power, the overseas version of the Corsair is powered by 2.0T/2.3T engines with maximum power of 250 hp and 280 hp. The peak torque is 373 Nm and 420 Nm. The transmission system matches the new 8-speed manual transmission.
According to the current situation, Lincoln Corsair may only have a 2.0T version in China version. Of course, if Lincoln wants a higher grade, then 2.3T may also appear. In terms of parameters, whether it is 2.0T or 2.3T, the power of these two engines is the leading in this segment, the transmission part is the Ford 8AT gearbox with intelligent four-wheel drive system, the dynamic feeling should not disappoint everyone, and there may be a hybird version in the future.
As for the price, I think this should be the most attention. After all, price of Cadillac XT4 China version starts only 200,000 yuan, some medias expected to be ranged in 220,000-320,000 yuan (~US$31,983 – US$46,521), if the configuration of Lincoln Corsair China version is rich and the price is not much different, then the car is still very competitive.
Lincoln Corsair China version will be made by Changan-Ford, the joint venture of Changan Auto and Ford.
