As the automaker expands its technology to lower-priced vehicles, it is increasing the availability of its handsfree highway driving system to Lincoln’s entry-level Corsair crossover.
Ford’s 2023 Corsair is the sixth Ford vehicle to offer this system, and the second Lincoln model after the brand’s Navigator SUV. The Corsair, which will offer the technology as ActiveGlide and BlueCruise for Ford, will be the lowest-priced model in Ford’s lineup.
The Corsair will retail for between $40,000 and $55,000. This includes a plug in hybrid electric model. The crossover will be available for order in the U.S. from now. Vehicles are expected to arrive in showrooms by early 2023.
Ford’s electric Mustang Mach-E offers this technology at a starting price of about $50,000. This includes the option. Officials from Ford stated that the Corsair will offer this technology on all three trims of the vehicle.
“It was just a natural progression with Corsair being the volume sales leader,” Dan DeRubeis, Corsair brand manager, told CNBC. “I think that’s the approach that we’ll continue to take with other programs into the future.”
