Remember when automakers were ditching car names for seemingly random letters? For some, the unfortunate trend is swinging the other way — and, in Lincoln’s case, way out there. For 2020, Ford’s luxury brand redesigned the MKC with a new name: Corsair, which can mean either pirate or pirate ship (depending on the definition), but there’s nothing rowdy or unrefined about it.
The Corsair shares underpinnings with the Ford Escape, but its differences, including suspension upgrades and more refined cabin appointments, make for something very different. Under the hood is a choice of two powertrains: A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (250 horsepower, 280 pounds-feet of torque) is standard, while a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder (295 hp, 310 pounds-feet of torque) is optional. Both work with a new eight-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive.
