Eric's Autos: 2021 Lincoln Corsair

Eric Peters on

The Ford Escape is a very popular little crossover SUV -- but what if you'd like it with more engine -- or a plug?

And AWD?

Maybe a 14-speaker Revel ultra-premium audio rig, too?

Head on over to a Lincoln store.

There you'll find the Corsair, which is based on the Escape, but it's more than a Ford. It offers a stronger version of the Escape's strongest optional engine -- and the option to roll faster without any engine at all for about 28 miles or so, depending on how you roll.

What It Is


The Corsair is the smallest crossover Lincoln sells. It is also the most affordable, with its base price of $35,945 being just slightly higher than the price of a loaded Ford Escape, which stickers for $33,300 -- and which you cannot buy with the 295-horsepower, 2.3-liter turbocharged engine that's available in its Lincoln-suited brother.

A plug-in hybrid version of the Corsair is also now available.

It stickers for $50,230.

Ford also sells a plug-in version of the Escape, but with less engine -- and without AWD.
