The 2020 Lincoln Navigator will represent the third production year of the current generation, which came with pretty revolutionary changes. Therefore, we don’t expect to see bigger changes for the next year. Some reports were suggesting updates, mainly due to the fact that the biggest rival, Cadillac Escalade is coming completely new this year, but the fact is that the Navigator is great enough to stand all potential threats of rivals.
Also, keep in mind that Lincoln is currently busy working on the new Aviator. So, the company’s designers and engineers shouldn’t touch anything for the next year. However, a mid-cycle refresh could be scheduled all ready for the next year. Until then, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator will carry on in the same way, with all those great novelties that were introduced a couple of years ago. Therefore, expect to see it sometime late in the year.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Design
Simply said, the new Navigator is an amazing SUV and there are many reasons for such claims. Of course, its luxury is always in the focus, but the fact is that this is a very driveable and efficient vehicle. It shares the platform with the F-150. This means all that use of lightweight materials, which are of a significant help not just in terms of fuel economy, but driving characteristics. The Navigator offers amazing handling, considering its size, so you would definitely enjoy its ride quality.
Of course, there is a unique styling as well. The recent redesign has brought some revolutionary changes in terms of aesthetics and the new model finally looks good. As it is heavily based on the concept version from a couple of years ago, its luxurious appearance is so transparent that this model looks almost like a yacht on wheels. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator should continue in the same way. We don’t expect to see any important exterior changes, though a couple of new color options seems possible.
The Navigator features one of the nicest cabins around, thanks to not just excellent quality but plenty of style as well. The first thing that you’ll notice is that the cabin offers an amazing combination of classic design and modern technologies. Plush materials and a lot of wood surfaces make this cabin look like a genuine vintage car. On the other side, numerous tech features are here to make the drive more comfortable and more convenient. Speaking of comfort and convenience, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator will continue to be one of the most spacious SUVs around.
With plenty of leg and headroom, this model can accommodate any adult person in all three rows of seating. The driving position is perfect, while the cargo area is among the biggest in the class. You can count on more than 19 cubic feet behind the third row, more than 63 cubic feet behind the second row, and more than 103 cubic feet of overall cargo capacity. A long-wheelbase version is also available. It adds for about 15 cubic feet of cargo space.
Tech and Safety Features
Already in base trims, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator will come with pretty much everything you could ask from a luxury vehicle. A 10-inch touch screen, navigation, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging a 14-speaker Revel audio system, satellite radio, and six USB ports are some of the highlights. Of course, there is much more in higher trims, including premium 20-speaker Revel audio system, rear-seat entertainment and more.
When it comes to safety features, things like blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert are standard features, as are parking sensors and a rearview camera. That doesn’t sound impressive for a luxury car at all. However, the fact is that there’s a long list of available systems, so you can get pretty much everything. Some of the highlights are a 360-degree camera, emergency brake assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, a head-up display, parallel and perpendicular park assist etc.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Engine
The recent redesign brought a big change under the hood, as the new model features “only” six cylinders. It comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, which is good for about 450 horsepower. With such output, you can count on great driving dynamics, while a 10-speed automatic transmission works perfectly. Interestingly, this “lack of cylinders” doesn’t prevent the Navigator to be one of the class-leaders in terms of towing capacity, which goes all-away up to 8.700 pounds. When it comes to fuel economy, you can count 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Release Date and Price
Since there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, we expect to see 2020 Lincoln Navigator sometime late in the year. Also, the price should remain pretty much the same, which would mean around 73.000 dollars for base models.
