2021 Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring: This plug-in hybrid will perform better and consume less
A second plug in hybrid utility vehicle is set to join the Lincoln lineup this luxury automaker just unveiled its new Corsair Grand Tour and model.
Here in Los Angeles.
Just like the larger 3 row aviator grand touring this crossover is powered by an electrified drive train.
Now behind that glittering grill you will find a 2.5 liter Atkinson cycle engine that drives a continuously variable transmission.
Providing four-cornered traction is a permanent magnet electric motor that drives a single speed gear box.
Now, you can't really see it but trust me, it's under there.
That motor provides an additional 110 pound feet of torque for speedy get away.
Is now all told this Coursera should be graced with an estimated 266 horsepower though that could change between now and when it ultimately goes on sale performance wise that should put the Grand Touring model right between the Coursera with the base two liter engine which has 250 horsepower and the top level offering which provides 295 ponies Of course another major component of the Coursera grand Turing's power train is a battery.
Now the unit in this vehicle is about the size of a card table.
It mounts underneath all of this pretty body work, and it clocks in at 14.4 kilowatt hours which should be enough capacity to provide an electric only driving range of about 25 miles.
Now you plug this thing into a standard 110 volt household outlet and it's gonna take between 10 and 11 hours to fully recharge.
However if you have access to a 240 volt outlet that time drops to just about three hours.
Further setting these versions apart from standard Corsairs is a range of things.
They have a different grill design and should roll on unique 20 inch wheels.
Beyond that their Lincoln star emblems and other badges are embellished with a special shade of blue.
Minor differences aside, grand touring share many of the same great features found in regular car steers.
Lincoln's phone as a key technology is offered as is a sliding second row seat and a generous cargo area.
The brand signature perfect position seats are also available.
They offer massage functionality and adjust in 24 different ways.
The new Coursera Grand Touring will be built in Louisville, Kentucky alongside the standard And its corporate sibling, the Ford Explorer.
