One of the most revered carmakers in the States is Ford. And it is only fitting that the Detroit automaker’s luxury segment Lincoln carries the same kind of respect. Over recent years, Lincoln has restructured itself to be more SUV centric. And serving as the entry-level SUV to the brand since 2020 is the all-new Lincoln Corsair

The Lincoln Corsair is getting a set of updates for the model year 2021, and the most prominent one of these is the introduction of a new Grand Touring Plug-in Hybrid trim, which we review separately. Apart from that, the 2021 Lincoln Corsair also gets two new appearance packages - the Monochromatic Package, and the Sport Appearance Package. Moreover, the 2021 Lincoln Corsair colors palette has also been extended with the introduction of two new colors - Asher Gray and Silver Radiance.

The Lincoln Corsair bolsters the stance of Lincoln among SUVs and serves as the entry-level SUV to the brand. It is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine that can produce 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission which is overdrive capable. FWD is offered as standard and prices of the 2021 Lincoln Corsair starts at $36,940 for the Standard trim and $42,630 for the mid-tier Reserve trim. In both the trims, AWD can be added for $2,200 extra. For the first time, a Grand Touring Plug-in Hybrid trim is also on offer which is AWD as standard and priced at $55,000. This trim uses a 14.4kWh battery to produce a pure EV range of 25 miles.

Decked with luxury features and spacious interiors, the 2021 Lincoln Corsair takes on the Mercedes Benz GLC ClassBMW X3, and the Volvo XC60

2021 Lincoln Corsair Pricing and Features

8.0/10

For the 2021 Corsair, Lincoln is offering the SUV in a total of three trim levels namely Base, Reserve, and the all-new Grand Touring PHEV. The prices for the 2021 Lincoln Corsair starts off at $35,945 while the Grand Touring ends the lineup at $55,000. However, since the 2021 Lincoln Corsair Grand-Touring is a plug-in hybrid model, we review it separately. The recently launched Grand Touring trim further ups the ante with bigger wheels and more driver assistance tech.

Coming to the standard gasoline version, the 2021 Lincoln Corsair is offered in a total of 2 trims - Base and Reserve. Both the trims get an FWD drivetrain as standard, whereas the AWD drivetrain is offered as an optional extra that costs an additional $2200 over the selected trim's MSRP.

The Base trim has the bare necessities for a luxury SUV while the Reserve trim decks things up and tunes up the luxury quotient. Additionally, if you decide to pick up the lower trims, you can always add more oomph to it with the available add-on options and packages. As to further please you, Lincoln has launched two new packages for the 2021 Lincoln Corsair, going by the names - Monochromatic Package, and Sport Appearance Package. 

The only caveat with the options is that the price spikes up very quickly. So, make sure to pick only those that you absolutely need.

2021 Lincoln Corsair Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

The Lincoln Corsair is the spiritual successor of the Lincoln MKC and is based on the Ford Escape platform, both of which have been highly rated by J.D. Power. The Lincoln Corsair has not been rated by J.D. Power yet but is sure to get comparable numbers like its siblings and predecessors when it does get rated. 

Since it was launched as the 2020 model, the ride has not had any recalls so far. The 2020 Ford Escape has had two recalls so far, one for improper inflation of side curtain airbags and the other for reduced strengths in seatbacks. Hopefully, the users of the current Corsair will not face any such issues. 

Now that you know how reliable the ride is, you will probably be interested to buy it for yourself. However, the offer price of the ride will not be the same in each state since different dealers have different discounts, and there are local state laws as well that come into play. Further, if the climate of the state will suit the ride also plays a role in the entire ownership costs. 

Once you have bought the ride, it's time to maintain it and make sure it remains your trusty steed for the years to come. The following are the 5-year ownership costs of the Lincoln Corsair:

Warranty

The 2021 Lincoln Corsair wins in terms of warranty figures compared to all its rivals. This is one of the biggest positives of the 2021 Corsair and that combined with its roadside assistance package makes it a really great choice for the customers. The following are the coverages of the warranty.

Criteria

Period

Basic warranty

4 years/ 50,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Powertrain warranty

6 years/ 70,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Corrosion perforation Coverage

5 years/ unlimited miles; whichever is earlier

Safety Restraint Coverage

5 years/ 50,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Roadside Assistance

Lifetime Complimentary 24x7 throughout the nation

In comparison to the others, there are no complimentary maintenance plans that you can get during the buying and customization process. That being said, the lifetime complimentary assistance of Lincoln is an unparalleled service that makes sure that you are covered in all circumstances in case your car ever breaks down on the road.

Miles per Dollar 

If you make the Lincoln Corsair your daily driver and run it for about 15,000 miles in a year, you will be spending an average of $1,900 on fuel. That means you will get 7.89 miles per dollar. Consecutively, you will be spending $0.127/mile or 12.7c/mile while you use it. 

2021 Lincoln Corsair Buying Advice

The best trim level to go for with the Lincoln Corsair is the Reserve trim as it gets a very capable engine along with all the advanced tech features and luxury offerings. Further, it is not a very big jump in terms of price as well. 

Is buying a used Lincoln Corsair a good idea?

If you want to hold on to some of your savings and yet enjoy the taste of luxury that the Lincoln Corsair can offer, the best bet would be to scour the used car market. Owing to the depreciation it undergoes, you can negotiate a great deal for yourself. 

Since the ride is fairly new, you can get a used 2020 Lincoln Corsair at about 10 grand less than the MSRP. If you can drive a hard bargain, you can extract an even bigger discount for yourself. 

2021 Lincoln Corsair Engine and Performance

6.0/10

The standard powertrain for the 2021 Lincoln Corsair remains to be a 2.0L turbocharged I-4 which can churn out 245 hp with 275 lb-ft of torque. The other powertrain option available on the 2021 Corsair is a turbocharged 2.3L I-4 that can pump up the power number to 295 hp. 

2021 Lincoln Corsair SUV 2.0L I4 engine.

Shaking things up for the new decade is the Grand Touring trim that uses a 2.5L I-4 engine in conjunction with 2 electric motors to churn out a total of 266 hp. It is supported by a 14.4kWh battery pack which allows you to get a pure EV range of 25 miles. 

Flanking all the powertrains is an 8-speed automatic transmission that is capable of going into overdrive to save fuel when needed. The power is delivered to front wheels as standard in the starting trims with optional AWD while the Grand Touring trim is available only as AWD.

In terms of competition, all of the rides are pretty evenly matched while the Mercedes-Benz GLC takes the cake with the maximum power. The Volvo XC60 comes in next and the BMW X3 takes the second to last spot. The Corsair, unfortunately, is the most underpowered. That being said, the Lincoln Corsair packs the maximum pulling strength which is comparable to the GLC 300. 

2021 Lincoln Corsair Acceleration and Braking Performance

Buying a luxury high rider like the Lincoln Corsair, you obviously don't expect to set the track on fire. And if you want to get some thrill out of it, you might end up getting disappointed since the powertrain is more tuned for smooth sailing than raw performance. The Lincoln Corsair can complete the 0-60 mph sprint in a relaxed 7.3 seconds while the quarter-mile takes double that time at 15.6 seconds. 

2021 Lincoln Corsair SUV 0-60 in just 7.3 sec.

Speaking of the braking arrangement, the 2021 Lincoln Corsair wears 13.2-inch discs at the front and 12.4 at the rear accompanied by ABS in all four corners.

In terms of braking, the Corsair is not winning any accolades either. The brakes are alright for the price but could have been better tuned. To stop the Lincoln Corsair from 60-0 mph, a distance of 126 feet is needed which is pretty mediocre for a small-sized SUV.

In comparison to the rest, the Mercedes Benz GLC pulls forward in the 0-60 but gives the throne to the Volvo XC60 in the quarter-mile. The BMW X3 takes the second spot in the 0-60 sprint followed by the XC60 in the third spot. In terms of braking prowess, the Volvo and BMW prove their mettle with the Mercedes Benz coming in at a close second. The Lincoln Corsair with its numbers stays out of the discussion.

2021 Lincoln Corsair Fuel Economy

4.0/10

The powertrain for the 2021 Lincoln Corsair remains unchanged. And hence, the fuel economy numbers remain the same as well. The 2021 Lincoln Corsair offers 22 MPG in the city, 29 MPG on the highway, and 25 MPG combined. With a 16.5-gallon fuel tank in place, the overall range does take a big hit as well at 412 miles overall. 

The Grand Touring trim brings a new powertrain but it's yet to be seen what kind of numbers it can offer. That being said, it is capable of offering 25 miles of pure EV range.

In terms of MPG figures, the BMW X3 takes the top spot with its numbers and the Lincoln Corsair takes the second spot. The Mercedes Benz GLC and the Volvo XC60 offer the same kind of fuel economy but the biggest difference is that the fuel tank of the Volvo is bigger than the Merc and hence allows a better range. 

2021 Lincoln Corsair Interior

Lincoln Corsair’s interiors are truly beautifully crafted. Leather and soft-touch plastic have been used very extensively yet tastefully. The steering wheel, seat, dashboard, and center console are all lined with leather. 

While the entire build is minimalist, almost all in-vehicular functionality can be controlled by the driver through all the controls that are placed within the close vicinity of the driver.

2021 Lincoln Corsair SUV front seat

The front seats of the Corsair are pretty comfortable and allow the passenger and driver to find the perfect seating posture but the rear sights are more comfortable as long as the passengers in the back are limited to 2. The addition of the third can make things cramped.

The only caveat is the sloping roofline that bites into the rear headroom, and even more so when you get a sunroof. In comparison to the rest, the luxury quotient is not at par with the interior of the 2021 Mercedes Benz GLC. But the Corsair offers comfort that even rides like BMW X3 and Mercedes Benz GLC are not able to offer. 

The Volvo XC60 offers a similar type of comfort that the Lincoln offers along with its own Volvo specific quirks. That being said, the Volvo also offers the biggest cargo compartment followed by the BMW X3. Lincoln comes in second to last while the GLC has the smallest cargo compartment

Some of the most eminent comfort and interior features of the 2021 Lincoln Corsair are:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Audio and cruise controls on steering wheel
  • Electrochromatic inside rearview mirror
  • Tilt and telescopic steering wheel
  • Interior air filtration
  • Head- up display
  • Reclining and split-folding rear seats
  • 24- way power front seats with heated, ventilated, and massage feature

How's the 2021 Lincoln Corsair's infotainment system?

In terms of keeping you entertained, the infotainment system on the Lincoln Corsair is an 8.0-inch touchscreen system that might look small but is very sharp and responsive.

Pouring in some optional dollars into the standard Corsair or upgrading to the Reserve trim unlocks a Head-up display, 14-speakers revel premium audio, wireless charging, a wi-fi hotspot and a full suite of Lincoln Co-pilot 360 driver assistance systems.

2021 Lincoln Corsair SUV steering wheel

Further, the driver gets a 12.3-inch driver's digital information display which provides a host of information when driving and comes in pretty handy on the go. The other standard features on this setup are:

  • 14 speaker Revel premium audio system
  • satellite radio
  • rearview camera
  • wireless charger
  • heads-up display
  • wi-fi hotspot
  • voice-activated navigation system
  • four USB ports along with 
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto smartphone integration.

With the Reserve trim, you get most of the added benefits of the technology package which can otherwise be added to the Base trim to add functionality to the ride. 

What about the cargo capacity of the 2021 Lincoln Corsair?

The Lincoln Corsair gets a humongous cargo-carrying capacity of 27.6 cubic feet, which is quite big even when compared to its rivals.

The 2021 Lincoln Corsair gets an automatic tailgate, a button to drop the rear row seats, and an adequately flat boot floor, all of these highlights make loading and unloading luggage a cakewalk.

The design language of the Lincoln Corsair is strikingly similar to the Lincoln Aviator. In reality, the Corsair seems like a smaller version of the Lincoln Aviator. That being said, the massive grille in the front flanked by the sleek eyelid style headlamps add a certain flair to the sensible design. 

2021 Lincoln Corsair SUV front view

The lines flow smoothly from the front and all the way to the back creating a suave silhouette. The clean, charming, and luxury appeal that Lincoln has always used is very much present on the Corsair.

As you move to the back, the sleek taillamps will remind you of the Porsche Cayenne which has similar taillamps. That being said, in comparison to the others, the Corsair is the lightest and is also the most compact. What is worth noting is that it's the widest of the lot, so you get the spacious interiors despite the compactness.

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair is undoubtedly one of the best looking compact crossovers in the market.

Moreover, two new packages are made available on the Lincoln Corsair for the model year 2021, namely - the Monochromatic Package and the Sport Appearance Package. 

The Monochromatic Package of the 2021 Lincoln Corsair adds 20-inch black wheels and body-color exterior trim to the Corsair, while the Sports Appearance package amps up the SUV by adding 20-inch polished wheels, body-colored front and rear bumpers, a black mesh grille, and illuminated door-jamb scuff plates.

2021 Lincoln Corsair Competition

2021 Lincoln Corsair Vs 2021 BMW X3

The BMW X3 has been a long term competitor of the segment and has proven why it is a worthy adversary time and again. It is packed with the best driver assistance systems on the market and can offer great performance on tap. That being said, the luxurious build and comfort of the Lincoln Corsair are hard to beat, which tips the scales in favor of the American. 

2021 BMW X3 SUV

Moreover, with a starting price of $35,945, the Lincoln Corsair is cheaper than the starting price of the 2021 BMW X3 and hence is a better deal in terms of horsepower per dollar. However, the Bimmer scores better than the Lincoln on the reliability aspect, and also offers a greater resale value

2021 Lincoln Corsair Vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300

The eternal symbol of opulence Mercedes-Benz has the GLC-Class roughing it out in the segment. It is a luxurious, comfortable, and versatile performer. Pitted against the Lincoln Corsair, the competition is particularly cutthroat but the Lincoln takes the cake on account of better cargo capacity and lower price.

2021 Mercedes-Benz SUV 300 SUV

The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, however, is more powerful and faster than the Lincoln Corsair. Though the ownership cost of the Merc is obviously more than Lincoln, the "Three-pointed Star" also fares better than the Corsair in terms of reliability ratings

2021 Lincoln Corsair Vs Volvo XC60 

The Scandinavian’s Volvo XC60 is a classic example of how intricate craftsmanship clubbed with a minimalist design are a winning combination. It packs a decent performance, spacious interiors, and massive cargo within its build without a very large jump in the price as compared to the others.

2021 Volvo XC60 SUV

Rear camera issues

Pros - Voice supported directions, Smooth driving dynamics, Heated and ventilated front seats

Cons - Rear camera issues which won't switch on when putting the car in reverse

Corsair has been designed to give the utmost comfort to the occupants. Drives smooth and the only issue I've had in it was with the camera which would not switch when I wanted to back up. Not always but happened on multiple occasions until I bought this issue to the dealerships notice. We have heated and ventilated seats at front. I drive with my wife and having all the ameneties focussed at front is just what I wanted Airy interiors and available options of comfort for every season. Not too boxy or curvy. Just the right amount of both Rear camera was the only issue I had in it which altered the safety to some extent. Thankully the dealership fixed it in no time and free of cost Best dealership experience The dealership was generous enough to give me a discount on leasing it. They have also been great in fixing the issues whenever I visit them The best Lincoln dealership. I've seen car guys having two faces. The nice one when you're there to buy a car and an uglier side when you bring issues in the car to their notice. Not the Tom Roush. They took the issue on themselves and fixed it for me while I was enjoying a coffee in the lounge area

Blue interiors

Pros - 1. Miles for a gallon 2.Blue upholstery 3.Reserve appearance package

Cons - 1. Touch screen size 2. Too many buttons and controls for driver

We needed a family hauler and we got it. Drives smooth and ends up with good miles for a gallon numbers. Touch screen looks dinky for the overall size of the car Blue upholstery with black paint job on the outside. I think there are not many cars out there which have this option. What I don't like is the front row cluttered with so many buttons and controls that they could have dumped into that dinky touch screen Nice fit and finish, and best in class paint quality. Reserve appearance package makes it look better than anything on the road Safety is at par because of the features like lincoln drive features, security alarm system, reliable cruise control and brakes Good gas efficiency for an suv of this size and built, solid built quality, and generous warranty period Well it was a good deal considering everything it has Everything went smooth and I was driving back in my new car before I even knew it

Lincoln is the benchmark

Pros - Strengths would be the brand itself

Cons - That the acceleration is not linear of course

The nametag Lincoln is sufficient to call it the best suv. The acceleration although isn't linear and the power delivery is just contorted because of the turbocharged engine and I never fancied it Now I know naturally aspirated engine would have been a great option if they had it It's the most expensive trim and sure looks like one inside out. Comfortable seats, loaded with tech, spacious everywhere etc Lincoln has always been known for the design and styling of their cars and Corsair is one fine example why they deserve this tag Once the acceleration starts to feel normal, there is nothing one needs to worry about while driving Lincoln should be the benchmark of quality and reliability Top line trim that has just about everything on top of all the standard features is as thrifty as 537 a month Got the best financing deal on it and even quicker approval
