Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Explorer than in the Lincoln Corsair. The Ford Explorer offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Corsair, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Explorer as you will with the Lincoln Corsair, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Explorer is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln Corsair. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Explorer is much higher than that for the Lincoln Corsair.

Since the Ford Explorer is much wider than the Lincoln Corsair, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Explorer, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lincoln Corsair.

When considering towing capacity, the Ford Explorer is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Corsair for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Explorer has a little more horsepower than the Lincoln Corsair.

With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Explorer transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lincoln Corsair.

The Ford Explorer offers greater seating capacity than the Lincoln Corsair, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Ford Explorer, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lincoln Corsair.

The basic warranty of the Ford Explorer is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lincoln Corsair.
