The exterior of the smallest Lincoln SUV was revisited for the current edition. Now the focus is on the interior. Also, there is no need to make changes under the hood, with a petrol engine serving as the base powertrain, and you can optionally pick a plug-in hybrid. So, the 2024 Lincoln Corsair is coming mostly unchanged, and the redesign is expected in 2025.
Starting price is more than fair. The compact luxury crossover is still under $40,000. At that price, you will get a potent engine with 250 hp. A PHEV option is also a cool upgrade that will cost around $15k more compared to the entry-level version. But it also adds plenty of other upgrades. For example, you will hardly find a more quiet cabin. Some say it is library-quiet.
Standard and Reserve are using a petrol unit, while the Grand Touring is available with the plug-in hybrid. Unfortunately, the Black Label packages are unavailable for the small crossover. You will need to buy Nautilus, Aviator or Navigator to unlock unique themes for the interior. Too bad. Many fans would like to get the Flight or Yacht cabin, or some of the new options for Corsair’s bigger siblings.
Base Engine Specs
Under the hood of the 2024 Lincoln Corsair is a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine. It produces 250 hp and sends to front wheels by default. Optionally, an all-wheel drive is available for a better traction. The Corsair also offers 280 pound-feet of torque. The gas mileage is not bad – 25 mpg combined, or 24 mpg if you take the AWD. An eight-speed transmission distributes power from engine to axles.
2024 Lincoln Corsair PHEV
The second option is a plug-in hybrid for the 2024 Lincoln Corsair Sport Touring package. The base of the system is a 2.5-liter engine and the support comes from a couple of electric motors. Total output of the configuration is 266 hp. The gas mileage jumps to 33 mpg, with exceptional city rating of 34 mpg. All-wheel drive is standard here. Plus, the Corsair PHEV has a range of 28 miles in the all-electric driving mode. Soon, Lincoln will start producing EVs. The first concept is ready – the Lincoln Star is the first such a vehicle to use electric power only.
Packages and Accessories
There will be three trim levels for the 2024 Lincoln Corsair: Standard, Reserve and Grand Touring. As a luxury vehicle, it is packed with advanced options already in the entry-level version. The compact crossover uses large 18-inch wheels. There are LED headlights, power liftgate, dual-zone climate, and simulated leather. Front buckets are heated, while driver’s chair has a memory settings function. Center of the multimedia system is a large 13-inch display. You also get 10-speaker audio, Wi-Fi connected services, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.
The Corsair Reserve is a $4,000 upgrade, and you are getting larger wheels, special lights outside and inside, and upscale leather upholstery. The safety package is also exceptional. That is the Co-Pilot360 version 2.1 with forward collision warning, automatic brakes, lane keep assist, blind-spot warning, adaptive cruise control and a few more systems that are mostly optional on all other vehicles.
The Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring is the top of the range version and the main upgrade is a PHEV engine. Instead of an 8-speed gearbox, there is the CVT and AWD. The company adds panoramic sunroof, unique adaptive suspension, and special colors.
2024 Lincoln Corsair Black Label
Well, the Grand Touring sits at the top of the range for now, until the 2024 Lincoln Corsair Black Label shows up. The company launched a few new themes for its larger siblings. For example, legendary Navigator is now offering Central Park theme. The package combines green leather and wooden accents. Old themes are Chalet, Yacht Club and Invitation. A mid-size Lincoln Aviator Black Label is available in Chalet, Destination and Flight schemes. Even Nautilus offers this package as the top of the line option. Redwood theme is announced and comes in 2024. We hope the 2024 Lincoln Corsair Black Label is set to debut with some of these options.
The base version of the 2024 Corsair will start under $40,000. The MSRP might be up a bit, but not over this mark. The Reserve will cost around $4,000. The Sport Touring is another $10,000 upgrade, mostly because of the PHEV system. Premium colors (Ceramic Pearl, Pristine White, Red Carpet, Asher Gray, Crystal Red and Whisper Blue) cost $750. Optional packages are Collection I (standard), Collection II and Collection III. Pricing of those bundles depend on a trim level, since some of the options are already added to Reserve and Sport Touring. The Corsair Black Label will top all of these grades. If it shows up, the price will be very close to $60,000. That is a bit too much for a vehicle of this size and probably the main reason why Lincoln is not making this move yet.
