Changes to 2021 Lincoln Models Reduce Lineup to Four SUVs

Jessica Shea Choksey | Dec 03, 2020

For 2021, Lincoln trims the model lineup down to just four offerings, all of them crossovers and SUVs. Both Lincoln sedans, the MKZ and the Continental, are cancelled for 2021. Otherwise, aside from a new Lincoln Corsair plug-in hybrid variant and a fresh interior and updated technology for the Lincoln Nautilus, most changes across the model line are minor.

A new appearance package and some new paint colors round out the Corsair’s updates.
