The word Corsair (“the Corsair, the privateer, the pirate”) is somewhat strange choice for a quiet and comfortable SUV. It seemed more suited to a hot hatch. But the Americans say about the connection with the Latin “cursus” (“traveling, traveling”). And this name is historical: in the 1960s, Ford used the designation Corsair for sedans, convertibles and station wagons.

In new York debuted a compact crossover Lincoln Corsair, the successor to the MKC, a fellow SUV Ford Kuga/Escape next generation. C2 global platform has enabled the car to improve handling and raise body rigidity, but also to tighten electronics. Among the advantages of the Corsair called the standard set of security systems Lincoln Co-Pilot360 and technology “the Phone as a key.” It gives the opportunity not only to open and start the car, but to create a personal profile set of systems are automatically activated when you log in. In case of theft or loss of phone function, you can remotely cancel.

As explained by the company, the new SUV reflects the philosophy of the Quiet Flight (“quiet flight”), and hence, the focus is on smoothness, quietness and a relaxing atmosphere in the cabin.

At the same time Quiet Flight — this design theme. According to the creators of the machine, a relatively simple form of compact multiple smooth lines turned into a “virtual mobile sculpture” that creates a sense of motion even in stillness.

Engineers dispatched to Corsair two four-cylinder boosted engine EcoBoost: 2.0 to 253 HP (373 N•m) and 2.3 284 HP (420 N•m). The first motor is five HP more powerful than the previous generation with the same thrust, and the second added six Newton meters, but lost five forces. Both are combined with vosmidiapazonnym “automatic” (the last generation was a six-speed). With each of the motors, you can get all-wheel drive. In normal conditions the thrust goes to the front axle to reduce fuel consumption, and if necessary thrown back.

The Corsair will debut three new versions of the painting of the interior: Beyond the Blue (blue-white colors), Cashew (rich brown plus black) and a Medium Slate (“soft grey” plus “ebony”).

The driver choose from five driving modes, named Normal (Normal), Excite (sports), Slippery (slippery road), Deep Conditions (mud and sand) and Conserve (spare fuel). Of course, the queries of Lincoln adapted the global suspension. Here, the authors machine isolated rear suspension with special “integral bushings”. Judging by a related Focus, we are talking about memorycache, which bushings have different stiffness in different directions and is thus better than a conventional, absorb vibrations and shocks without losses from handling.

Multimedia system Sync 3 eight-inch touch-screen friendly with smartphones and distributes Wi-Fi. Among the options include head-up display, a premium Revel audio system with 14 speakers, front seat Lincoln Perfect Position with 12 adjustments.

Like the new Aviator, Corsair has received six unique audible alarms (bells), recorded by the Detroit Symphony orchestra. They are distributed in twenty-five situations (from the seat belt of the forgotten to open the fuel tank flap). These symphonies should be particularly good to appear on a background of inner silence, not only of conventional soundproof materials, but rare for cars of this class a double wall between the engine compartment and interior. There is also a system of active noise cancellation. Staff at Co-Pilot360 automatic braking with pedestrian detection, monitoring of blind zones of mirrors, holding in the band, automatically switching the high beam and rear view camera.

The second row moves in the longitudinal direction 152 mm. At the conviction of the company, the legroom here more than in some crossovers.

Optionally it is possible to Co-Pilot360 Plus, which includes adaptive cruise control with lane departure in traffic (Stop&Go) technology to hold on the center of the lane, the speed limit by reading signs, assistant to the evasion of obstacles (work, when to stop before it does not work), system of emergency braking when reversing and full samarkandyk (steering wheel, gas, brake), launched by one button. To make Lincoln the Corsair will be a plant in Louisville (Kentucky). In the U.S. the car will appear this fall. Prices not yet announced, but the previous generation model (MKC) is sold in the USA with a price of $33 995 (2.18 million rubles at the exchange rate).

History

Crossover Lincoln MKC appeared in 2013. It was built on the Global C platform as the Kuga/Escape that time. In fact, the model can be represented as a more luxuriously decorated Kuga in the corporate design of Lincoln.

The car was equipped with four 2.0 EcoBoost (248 HP, 373 N•m) and 2.3 (289 HP, 414 N•m), six-speed automatic transmission, front-or all-wheel drive. Optional was adaptive suspension.

In 2017, was held restyling. Most strongly changed the front part, which received a new grille (photo collage on the bottom right). At the same time was expanded capabilities of the mobile app Lincoln Way, and the automatic braking began to react to pedestrians. The demand for large MKC will not name, but it is surprisingly stable. In 2016, the U.S. was purchased 25 562 cars in 2017-m — 048 27, 2018 — 26 241.

Decoration version: 20-inch wheels Warp Speed with a unique cover Satin Carbon and wide tires Pirelli 305/35 R20.

In 1969, Dodge created a model Charger Daytona for NASCAR racing. Not so much through power as streamlined nose and huge rear wing (that was a true innovation for NASCAR) Daytona won the first race and the first exceeded the average speed of the round at 200 mph (322 km/h) at the Talladega oval. The record held for 17 years. In addition to the samples racing Dodge built road 501 instance Daytona for homologation. Now, in the memory of those events created a 2020 Dodge Charger sedan SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition.

A distinctive feature of Daytona — contrast white sticker with the name of the series, an exciting rear fenders and spoiler. Exterior colors can be four: Pitch Black, Triple Nickel, White Knuckle and exclusive for this edition B5 Blue. In the case of the basic white color body sticker will be blue.

The car in the commemorative performance will release the same edition as the historical prototype of 1969, — 501 thing. And it is much less than that produced 375-horsepower sedan Charger Daytona in 2012 (the machine, the last time carrying the nameplate Daytona, with a circulation of 2,500 copies).

Another car donated Brembo brake calipers (six – and chetyrehporshnevye, front/rear).

In sedan Daytona 50th Anniversary for top of the Widebody Charger SRT Hellcat. However, the source anniversary monster is not only a special color, or memorial boards in the cabin. The car was boosted engine. Bit. But on a special commemorative editions not everyone does that, most of the power plant do not touch.

In the salon Daytona 50th Anniversary there was a real carbon fiber, black nappa leather, suede leather and Dynamica Alcantara, blue stitching, embroidery “Daytona” accents “bright chrome”, velour floor mats with blue piping, and a “X of the 501”.

In the source Assembly V8 6.2 drive compressor produces 717 HP and 881 N•m, and in the version of Daytona 50th Anniversary — 727 HP (time left unchanged). Once “horse” is not lost, the engineers slightly raised switching point eight – “machine”, to 6100 rpm. it is Unclear, however, how this influenced the dynamics of Americans do not indicate it. And the source (i.e., normal version SRT Hellcat Widebody) gets from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.6 sec and to accelerate to 315 km/h. the Manufacturer calls this Dodge Charger the fastest production sedan in the world, although this is incorrect. But he is one of the fastest, of course.

White stripe at the jubilee car is designed to evoke the most famous high rear wing of the original Daytona, which was painted in a contrasting color relative to the body.

Orders for the sedan Charger Daytona edition 50th Anniversary Dodge dealers will begin taking in the fall of this year, and the first copies will arrive in dealerships in early 2020. Well, in public for the first time this car show next Saturday at the event, the Woodward Dream Cruise in Pontiac (Michigan), along with a family of Chargers 2020 model year and a number of other dodges that.

Exclusive shade of green Nori Green Pearl talks about efforts to create “a more refined, Mature coupe”, neither of which is without subtracting. On the same show, two-tone wheels with a diameter of 21 inches.

The execution of the Inspiration Series for the coupe Lexus LC 500 can be had without remorse just did not notice. A special model intended for the U.S. market, technological innovations zero, and the other differences from conventional dvuhdverka a cat laugh. However, there are three reasons why you should pay attention to. First, LC 500 Inspiration interesting to look at an unexpected new color. Secondly, it is a rare bird: this edition is limited to only a hundred cars. Thirdly, similar to the publication at the beginning of the year made it to Russia.

Price not announced, but it certainly will exceed $100 thousand. Standard LC 500 coupe with V8 engine 5.0 (477 HP, 540 N•m) and a ten step “automatic” is in the US from $92 950 (6.1 million). For 2018 it was bought in 1979 the Americans, in July 2019 — 96.

Length, width, height of the electric vehicle is equal 4665, 1813, and 1513 mm, wheelbase is 2660 mm.

Expected in the near future electric subcompact SUV , the Chevrolet Bolt EUV (kinsman a simple Bolt) appeared in China under the name Chevrolet Menlo EV. The debut of the Chinese model will likely be held at the motor show in Chengdu in September (American counterpart later). But pictures have already leaked, and some of the data.

Look at Menlo’s original, but obviously made under the influence of the concept Chevrolet FNR-X 2017 (that, incidentally, was a hybrid).

According to CarNewsChina.com built new not on the chassis of the already known Bolt hatchback, and on the basis of a completely new electric piatigorski Buick Velite 6 MAV EV from the joint venture SAIC-GM. She is allegedly the original “trolley”, developed in cooperation with GM and SAIC. Edition GM Authority says that Chevrolet Menlo — separate model for China and it does not copy future EUV Bolt. We believe they will be very similar in appearance, but inside can be different parameters impact the motor and the size of the traction battery. In General, while we believe Menlo a kind of forerunner of the SUV Bolt EUV.

Left pre-production test sample of the SUV EUV Bolt, right — image of another close relative, insiders say that it will be released under the brand Buick.

Power of electromotor Menlo (made by Huayu Automotive Electric Systems) of different Chinese media indicate how 150, 174 and as “horse”. This is probably data on its nominal returns and short-term peak. This is much higher than that of the related Buick Velite 6 MAV EV (there were only 115 HP). Capacity lithium-ion battery from SAIC Era Power Battery System is not listed as a reserve. It will not be worse than that of the same electric Velite 6 (301 km “in the city”). But before the Bolt hatchback recruit Menlo still grow: the American model engine power is 203 HP and mileage on a single charge — 380 km on the WLTP. But at least that Menlo was ahead. According to preliminary data, its maximum speed is 150 km/h, while the Chevrolet Bolt is content 146.
