The carmaker is working on the all-new 2020 Lincoln Navigator, but at the moment we still don’t have the official information whether the new Lincoln will get some major changes. However, we assume that this time there won’t be any major changes applied since the Navigator is still competitive and looking fresh. Therefore, it could only get some upgrades in the technology department and perhaps some new optional packages. Under the hood, it Navigator will probably get the same engine as the current model. And there are no words about the hybrid option at the moment.
2020 Lincoln Navigator engine and performance
The new 2020 Lincoln Navigator will most likely return with the same engine which powers the current model. And there is one single option. It is a well-known 3.5-liter V-6 twin-turbocharged engine. It is able to develop 450 horses and the torque of 510 lb-ft. This engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic gearbox and comes with rear-wheel drive system as standard. Of course, the all-wheel drive configuration will also be offered.
With the standard RWD configuration, this model is rated at 16 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg combined. The extended version Navigator L will get 16 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg combined. The all-wheel drive model is estimated to be 16 mpg in the city, 21 mpg on the highway, and 18 mpg combined. The Lincoln Navigator will be able to tow up to 8,700 pounds.
The exterior design of the 2020 Lincoln Navigator
The new 2020 Lincoln Navigator is a full-size SUV which is expected to return with the same design which has been recently refreshed with a more upright body and better-defined lines. The front end will wear the familiar large mesh grille. And there will be a pair of large headlights with dual LED accents beneath them. The rear end is dominated by the prominent LED taillights and the Lincoln badge written in large letters. The Navigator will ride on the large 22-inch wheels.
Design of the interior
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator is a full-size SUV which rides on the 122.5-inch wheelbase and it is 210 inches long. There is also an extended version called the Navigator L. It is 221.9 inches long and stands on the 131.6-inch wheelbase. So, it provides an excellent interior room and comes with three rows of seats. The front seats are highly comfortable and supportive even at all-day rides. The second-row captain’s chairs are also pretty good. And it is also available with a bench which increases the seating from 7 to 8 passengers. As for the third row, it is good but best for smaller adults and can place three occupants. It can also be folded down for more cargo space which measures 120.2 cubes on the standard model while the Navigator L offers the room of 120.2 cubic feet.
The power tailgate and a power-folding third row are standard in all the models. In the center of the dashboard, there is a large 10-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. There are also many controls on it which are easy to use and reach.
