The updated Lincoln Navigator arrives in dealers this November.
As expected, the all-new Navigator has been a massive success for Lincoln. Supply was outstripping demand for the large luxury SUV at one point. According to Lincoln, the new Navigator is also luring luxury buyers away from other brands, with more than 66 percent of sales coming from other brands. Nine out of ten Navigators sold are also premium Reserve or Black Label series models. To maintain this sales momentum for the 2020 model year, Lincoln is updating the Navigator with a slew of new standard tech.
New for the 2020 Navigator is Lincoln's Phone As A Key technology, which was first announced for the all-new Aviator. Using the Lincoln Way app, the technology allows owners to lock and unlock, open the liftgate and start and drive their Navigator without a traditional key fob. Power running boards, heated and ventilated front-row seats and a wireless charging pad for compatible mobile phones are also now standard.
Lincoln's Co-Pilot360 package is also now bundled with the 2020 Navigator as standard, which includes driver assists such as auto high-beam headlamps, blind spot detection with cross-traffic alert and trailer coverage, lane-keeping system pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, dynamic brake support, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and rear-view camera with washer. "Purposeful technology is an integral part of today's lifestyle," said Trevor Scott, marketing manager. "By bringing more Lincoln signature technologies to our most popular vehicles like Navigator, we continue to differentiate ourselves from the competition and offer our clients features that help make the daily drive experience effortless."
Navigator Reserve series SUVs can also be enhanced with three available Monochromatic styling packs in Pristine White, Ceramic Pearl and Infinite Black. Lincoln says these packs are inspired by a color trend popular in fashion and home decor that use variations of a single hue to create a smooth yet vibrant color scheme. "The monochromatic palette emphasizes the strong lines of the Navigator," said Earl Lucas, Lincoln chief designer. "It's a perfect color scheme for a full-size luxury SUV, and it offers clients another way to personalize their new Navigator."
Like last year's model, the 2020 Navigator packs a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine producing 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft, paired with a 10-speed automatic gearbox. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator will arrive in US dealers this November, with pricing to be announced closer to the sale date. Expect the 2020 Navigator to cost more than the current model, which starts at $73,205, thanks to the extra standard tech.
