Lincoln has announced plans to have a fully electric lineup by 2030. To begin electrifying its lineup, Lincoln is launching its first global EV in 2022 — the same time that the brand will celebrate its 100th anniversary.

Lincoln will use a new all-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive battery electric flexible architecture to produce four brand-new EVs. Currently, the Lincoln lineup includes the plug-in hybrid Lincoln Corsair and Lincoln Aviator SUVs.

The first fully-electric Lincoln will have a spacious interior with lots of storage options as well as a panoramic roof to let more natural light inside. You’ll have several themes to choose from for its display to match your design preferences.

Upcoming Lincoln models will also have the Lincoln Intelligence System that can keep technologies like the SYNC® 4 system up to date through software updates. For instance, the hands-free digital assistant Alexa will get a major update in the fall. Another great new technology will be the Lincoln ActiveGlide hands-free highway driving system, which will take control of the steering while you sit back and relax.

Vehicle Safe

Keeping your valuables safe is always a priority. While there are plenty of storage options in your Lincoln SUV to conceal your high-value items, Lincoln offers a vehicle safe by Console Vault in its official store. Not only will it conceal what matters most to you, it locks it away from intruders and valets.

Portable Fridge and Freezer

Your Lincoln SUV is so comfortable, it’s perfect for drive-in movie theaters. Whether you’re settling in for the newest blockbuster or looking to keep your snacks cold on a long drive, Lincoln’s portable fridge/freezer makes keeping everything at a safe temperature. Unlike a cooler, this device doesn’t rely on messy ice.

There are plenty of third-party seat covers on the market to protect your vehicle from pet hair, but few (if any) actually conform to the shape of your SUV’s seats.

2021 Lincoln Navigator Named ‘Best Road Trip Car’ by Esquire

Navigator is Best Road Trip Car - West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land - Sugar Land, TX

The Esquire Car Awards have bestowed the title of “Best Road Trip Car” upon the luxurious 2021 Lincoln Navigator.

The classy three-row SUV won over Esquire’s Kevin Sintumuang after he drove it for 8,500 miles on a cross-country family road trip. During that long journey, he enjoyed its interior comforts and Active Noise Control, which provides “a hushness more commonly associated with the likes of a Rolls Royce.”

That insulation from road noise provides the perfect backdrop for spirited family bonding time — or for rocking out to your favorite tunes on the 20-speaker Revel® Ultima audio system. And when it comes to comfort, Sintumuang specifically praised the available Perfect Position front seats, which boast 30-way adjustability and 11 air cushions.

On top of its opulent interior, the Lincoln Navigator delivers a thrilling ride courtesy of its 450-horsepower twin-turbo V6. Sintumuang also recognized the model’s good looks — when outfitted with the Monochromatic Package, it “fits right in at a fancy resort’s valet stand.”

In addition to his glowing praise for the Lincoln Navigator, Sintumuang also gave a nod to the Lincoln Corsair. He appreciates that it boasts similar qualities to the Lincoln Navigator, but in a smaller vehicle.

Looking for a road trip vehicle that’s a cut above the competition? You can find both the Lincoln Navigator and the Lincoln Corsair right here at West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land.

Follow These 3 Car Care Tips This Spring

Spring Car Care Tips - West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land - Sugar Land, TX

With the arrival of spring, it’s a great time to book your next vehicle maintenance visit at West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land. Though Texas doesn’t (typically) see much in the way of winter weather, spring car care is a great opportunity to get your ride road-ready for all the trips to come this year.

Clean Underneath Your Vehicle

Usually, Texans don’t have much to worry about when it comes to snow. But as we all know, 2021 is not your normal year. If you drove on salted roads after the snowfall earlier this year, your vehicle may still be carrying harmful residue that can lead to corrosion and rusting. Take advantage of the nice weather and wash your Lincoln off, making sure to spray the underbody.

Wiper Blades

Did you know that you should be changing out your wiper blades every 6-12 months? Getting into a rhythm with this important part of car care can start with springing for a new set every spring. By equipping your Lincoln with new windshield wiper blades, you can ensure the best visibility possible for your spring road trip.

Oil and Filter

One of the most important things you can do for your vehicle is make sure it has fresh oil and a fresh filter. This crucial step in consistent car care will pay you back with consistent performance and efficiency over the lifetime of your vehicle.

The service pros at West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land have the playbook for all your spring car care needs. Visit our service department and we’ll make sure that you and your vehicle are ready for plenty of fun in the months ahead.

Lincoln Corsair-E Electric SUV Planned for 2026

Lincoln Corsair-E Electric SUV Coming Soon - West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land - Sugar Land, TX

The Corsair of the Future

The future of the luxury Lincoln brand is looking electric. According to a recent report by AutoForecast, Lincoln will release an electric version of the Corsair in 2026 or 2027. The report indicates that the Lincoln Corsair-E electric SUV will start production at the Oakville, Ontario plant in September of 2026. Lincoln has not officially commented on this report.

In the report, it indicates that the Lincoln Corsair-E will be produced on a dedicated EV platform that will be shared with other electric vehicles. It is possible that Ford will sell both the gasoline and electric versions alongside one another; however, they would be built on different platforms.

The Corsair of the Present

The current Lincoln Corsair is one of Lincoln’s best-selling models thanks to its comfortable cabin, smooth power, and well-equipped interior. If you are looking for an electrified version, there will be a plug-in hybrid version of the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring model available later this year. This model is expected to offer about 25 miles of electric driving range.

For the 2021 model year, the Lincoln Corsair comes well-equipped with premium features including an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, faux leather upholstery, a power rear liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a suite of advanced driver safety aids.

Top Reasons to Buy a Lincoln SUV

Reasons to Buy a Lincoln SUV - West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land - Sugar Land, TX

When you’re looking around for a new luxury vehicle, eventually you’ll have to decide whether to go with a sedan or an SUV. While first-rate sedans like the MKZ are nothing to sneeze at, there are a couple of compelling reasons to buy a Lincoln SUV from West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land.

Versatile Space

Unsurprisingly, most SUVs offer more overall space than sedans. That means they’re a prime choice if you have a family, frequently travel with pets, or just need cargo space for weekend gear. The 2021 Navigator, for instance, offers up to 103.3 cubic feet of storage capacity and more than 172 cubic feet of passenger volume.

Safety First

Generally speaking, SUVs and crossovers tend to be safer than compact cars, which is an important consideration if you have children. Lincoln takes that idea to the next level by equipping its vehicles with advanced driver assist features like Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking.

The Height of Luxury

When you buy or lease a Lincoln SUV, you know you’re in for a treat. That’s partially because you can outfit your cabin with premium materials like soft-touch leather and genuine wood. Of course, decadent additions like a heated steering wheel for year-round comfort and an adaptive suspension that guarantees a smooth ride don’t hurt.
