After an acclaimed redesign in 2018, the 2019 Lincoln Navigator is riding high. It leads a competitive pack of American luxury SUVs, asserting dominance with an imposing exterior, endless space, and a sophisticated and luxurious cabin.
What's New for 2019
Aside from renaming a trim level, the Lincoln Navigator returns largely unchanged for 2019.
Choosing Your Lincoln Navigator
Only one engine powers the 2019 Navigator, but it’s a doozie. A 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 packs 350 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission sends power to either the rear or all four wheels, but it can only do so much to improve fuel economy. The Navigator achieves an EPA-estimated 16 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway, and 19 combined with rear-wheel drive, or 16/22/18 mpg (city/highway/combined) with all-wheel drive.
The Navigator can also come in long-wheelbase form on all except the base trim. A Navigator L is $3,200 over the starting price and extends the already lengthy cabin to a gargantuan 18.5 feet. Cargo space behind the third row also expands from 19.3 cubic feet to 34.3 cubes. With the seats down, the Navigator L can hold a small room’s worth of cargo at 120.2 cubic feet.
Closely related to the Ford Expedition, the Navigator boasts a solid towing capacity of 8,700 pounds (in RWD, standard-wheelbase form). All Navigator’s also get useful touches like a side-wind stabilization system and a self-cleaning rearview camera.
The remaining features are divided across four trims:
The themes on the Black Label may just be worth the price, but the best value in the 2019 Lincoln Navigator lineup is in the Select trim. Add the Perfect Position seats for unparalleled comfort, plus the Technology Package for a little extra peace of mind.
