The Lincoln Corsair crossover, which will premiere at a motor show in New York, will replace the current MKC model

The company Lincoln has published a teaser for the new crossover called Corsair, which will replace the model MKC in the line of the American brand. The public premiere of the car will be held in mid-April at the motor show in New York.

The replacement of the name is due to the Lincoln’s intention to completely abandon the “MK” designation for its crossovers, which it has used for the past 11 years. For example, in the fall of 2017, the Lincoln replaced the mid-size SUV MKX with the Nautilus model.

According to preliminary data, the two-liter “turbo four” EcoBoost, which, for example, on the Ford Escape develops 248 horsepower, will be included in the Lincoln Corsair engine line. The engine will be combined with an automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system. It is also possible that the model will have a version with a more powerful supercharged unit V6.

The current Lincoln MKC, built on the Ford Global C platform, was updated at the end of 2017 and was presented at a motor show in Los Angeles. The Lincoln MKC engine includes a 2.0-liter gasoline turbo engine with a power of 254 horsepower. In addition, a 2.3-liter engine with an output of 285 horsepower is available.
