This full-size luxury SUV was originally launched in 1997 as 1998 year model. It is built by the Ford Motor Company for its luxury division, Lincoln. So far, we have seen three generations of this luxury SUV. Current model is present from 2007, so it seems logical to expect that 2016 Lincoln Navigator will come with some updates. Last year model came with some changes, but according to some information, 2016 Navigator should come as all-new, fourth-generation model. New model will come with many improvements, new look, new features inside and also a new engine.
2016 Lincoln Navigator redesign
Although it will come with some changes, 2016 Lincoln Navigator will keep its conventional square look. It will probably use the same platform as its predecessor, but we also expect use of some lightweight materials in order to make some weight savings. Outside look will be slightly revisited, but you should not expect anything more than new grille and some head/taillights tweaks. Unlike exterior, interior of Lincoln Navigator 2016 will undergo some significant changes. New model will get new dashboard. Old analog instruments will be replaced with new digital ones. Also, we expect to see many new hi-tech features like, for example new MyLincoln Touch infotainment system in 2016 Navigator.
2016 Lincoln Navigator engine
The current 5.4-liter V8 engine is going to be replaced with new engine. The 2016 Lincoln Navigator will be powered with 3.5 liter twin-turbo V6 which has and output of 370 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of max torque. It will be coupled with 6-speed automatic gearbox, while power will be delivered to rear or all wheels. The company promises that new model will be one of the most economical SUVs in its class.
2016 Lincoln Navigator price and competition
It is expected that 2016 Lincoln Navigator will cost around 60.000 dollars. There are several competitors in this class. Some of them are Mercedes-Benz GL-class, Infiniti QX80 or Cadillac Escalade. Release date is still unknown, but we expect to see presentation of 2016 Navigator by the end of this year, but it definitely won’t be available on the market before next year.
