Lincoln Navigator Price Increases; Still Cheaper Than the Escalade

Pricing

It may have lost its V8, but at least the Navigator costs less than Cadillac's SUV bling machine.

$62,475. That’s the cost of entry for the refreshed 2015 Lincoln Navigator. And that price tag is only for the base model. You’ll need to pony up $75,065 if you want the Navigator L ("L", as in long wheelbase). Go ahead and do the quick math and compare that $62,475 sticker price to last year’s model. It’s an increase of $6,310. If you want four-wheel-drive, that amount goes up another $3,575. A fully-loaded Lincoln L with four-wheel-drive now costs $75,065.

So is this some magical new Lincoln Navigator that comes with a V8, a 5-year supply of free gas, and whale penis leather? Nope (and please excuse our sarcasm here, you’ll understand why in a moment). Lincoln believes that because it restyled the Navigator (it does look good, we admit) and equipped it with standard bits like push-button start, SYNC with MyLincoln Touch, a blind spot monitoring system, and a LED-backlit instrument cluster, the extra dough is justified. A Ford Escape offers all of that, with the exception of the LED cluster. Oh yeah, the V8 option has been dropped entirely.

In its place is a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine with 380 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Apparently that’s now all worth over $62k. But that amount doesn’t sound all that bad when you consider the base price of the new Cadillac Escalade. That sucker starts at $71,695.
