Not only has the 2020 Lincoln Corsair provided the finishing touch on the reimagining of the Ford luxury brand’s SUV lineup — following the introductions or reintroductions in recent years of the Nautilus, Navigatorand Aviator — but its buccaneer theme has given us the pirate-pun gift that keeps on givin’. And we just can’t help but make abundant use of that gift almost every time we write about the unofficial vehicle of International Talk Like a Pirate Day — just as we did in our most popular news article of the past week, a rapid-fire roundup of all the things we like and the things we don’t about the 2020 Lincoln Corsair.
