  • 2020 Lincoln Corsair

    The 2020 Lincoln Corsair will become the brand's first model produced in China, Automotive News (subscription required) reported on Wednesday. The Corsair's MKC predecessor is Lincoln's most popular model in China, and the new, much more handsome replacement is likely to continue this trend. Production will likely take place at the same plant where Ford builds the redesigned 2020 Escape for the Chinese market, as the two vehicles share a platform. Ford's plants in China are operated as a joint venture with local automaker Changan. Corsairs for the United States will be sourced from a plant in...

  • 2020 Lincoln Aviator

    More than a decade on since the nameplate was last in production, Lincoln's Aviator is finally back, and better than ever. The 2020 Aviator unveiled earlier this month at the 2018 Los Angeles auto show is a credible alternative to mid-size luxury crossover SUVs from the German brands, and thus it's no surprise it's priced like them too, with the base price coming in at $52,195, including destination. That price is with the standard 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-6, which Lincoln estimates is good for 400 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. And drive is to the rear wheels only as standard...

Right now, Ford plans to begin local production of Lincoln vehicles in late 2019. Until then, Lincoln will be forced to face a 40-percent tariff on cars imported to China from the United States. Falotico said Ford has absorbed some of the extra costs, but the...
