The 2021 Lincoln Corsair features over 57 cubic feet of available cargo space within its 106-inch wheelbase and 180-inch overall length. This gives Alpharetta owners the benefit of ample space with a nimble and agile package. The Corsair is powered by an EcoBoost turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine that produces up to 295 horsepower. The exclusive EcoBoost technology produces an impressive and power-dense engine that still approaches 30 MPG on the highway. This drivetrain makes for a peppy driving experience around Milton and Duluth, GA, crisp, and controlled. The Corsair interior has been developed on the newest Lincoln design platform that emphasizes classic elegance paired with the latest technology. Features include a chic piano key gear selector that is smart and classy at once.

New Lincoln Corsair Changes Luxury SUVs

The Mercedes-Benz GLS class SUV has been the primary large capacity SUV in the Mercedes line up for several years. The GLS is available in 6 and 7-seat configurations, with both offering a high level of luxury for Buford drivers and passengers. The GLS is available with either a turbocharged inline 6 engine or a Biturbo V8. The inline-6 engine produces 362 horsepower and offers impressive towing capacity. However, this comes at the expense of fuel economy. The GLS has an EPA Highway rating just over 20 MPG, with the Biturbo V8 being even worse. The GLS places an evident emphasis on interior comfort, utilizing an impressive array of tech features and premium surfaces like the S-Class sedans.

While the Mercedes GLS is an impressive SUV with limousine-like opulence, its large size, heavyweight and inefficient powertrain are remnants of a dying era in market trends. Modern Johns Creek consumers seek SUVs adequate in size and power, but not oversized and overpowered. There is an increasing preference for more connected driving experience and a better balance of power and efficiency. The 2021 Lincoln Corsair, along with the other new marks from Lincoln, is leading the way towards a new paradigm of luxury SUV design that pampers Dawsonville drivers while providing driving confidence.
