The Navigator is one of the first names that comes to our minds when someone mentions luxury SUVs. This model is a household name in the segment for years. The fact that the completely new model came a year ago should be enough to make a conclusion that the 2020 Lincoln Navigator will largely remain the same. The recent redesign has brought lots of novelties. The new model comes with significantly improved styling, lots of weight savings, new engines and much more. All these clearly indicate that bigger changes won’t come in the next couple of years.
- High level of comfort
- Plenty of legroom and cargo space
- Powerful engine
- A long list of standard equipment
- Not so maneuverable
- High price tag
The only possible changes for the next year are in terms of new color options. Other than that, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator should continue with the same design characteristics as the 2019-year model, which came with lots of novelties in various aspects. First of all, there is a new platform, which significantly improves efficiency, thanks to lightweight materials. The new model utilizes technologies from the F-150 truck, which means a massive use of aluminum and HSS. Also, there is a completely new styling, which was probably the weakest point of the previous generation. The new one looks pretty close to the concept version from a few years ago.
On the inside, count on a few more standard features, as well as on new color schemes. The overall layout will definitely remain the same. This SUV has a lot in common with the Ford Expedition, which has also received a complete redesign recently. So, count on similar cabin dimensions, which are definitely enough to provide lots of legroom and cargo space, which is above-average for the class. Another important new features of this generation is an independent rear suspension, which significantly improves comfort.
The recent redesign has brought significant changes under the hood. The new model drops large V8 units and now features an efficient 3.5-liter V6, which is good for about 450 horsepower and comes in pair with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy goes around 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, which are pretty good numbers for the class. According to some reports, we should see a hybrid version in the offer soon. This one would combine V6 engine with a electric motor and battery pack, for even better performances and fuel economy. However, we haven’t get any official confirmation so far.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Release Date and Price
The exact release date depends on the potential hybrid version. If this model arrives, expect a little bit earlier launch date. Otherwise, late 2019 seems like a certain thing. Starting price definitely won’t change. It will go around $73,000.
