2020 Lincoln Navigator: PREVIEW, PRICING, RELEASE DATE

Model Preview

Fresh off a redesign in 2018, we expect the 2020 Lincoln Navigator will roll into dealerships with no notable changes.

The 2020 Lincoln Navigator marks the third model year since its revolutionary redesign that brought in a new, more luxurious look that further separated it from its Ford Expedition source material. The changes included a huge grille, flashy wheels, unique front and rear fascias, a loaded-to-the-gills cabin with a 10-inch high-resolution screen, Slingbox TV streaming, and much more. We expect nothing to change inside or out on the 2020 Lincoln Navigator.

With no changes coming, we also expect the long list of standard features to remain the same when the 2020 Lincoln Navigator hits showrooms. If this proves true, it will come standard with upscale amenities like 20-inch 14-spoke wheels, tri-zone climate control, genuine wood trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, ambient lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable pedals, remote ignition, a 110-volt power outlet, in-car Wi-Fi, a 14-speaker Revel audio system, 10-way power front seats, LED headlights, and much more.

2018 Lincoln Navigator

Under its hood, we expect the 2020 Lincoln Navigator to continue with the same 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine that injects 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. We also expect the standard 10-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive to carry on. All-wheel drive will remain an option. This carryover powertrain will maintain the Navigator’s 8,700-pound towing capacity.

The IIHS has not tested the new-generation Navigator for safety yet, but it received a five-star rating from the NHTSA despite a shaky three-star rollover rating from the rear-wheel-drive version.

Other than a rearview camera, the current Navigator lacks any standard advanced safety equipment on the base trim like automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise. To get this important equipment, you must move into the second-tier Select trim and opt for the $2,640 Technology Package. We expect this safety equipment to remain in the same position in the 2020 Navigator lineup.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date set for the 2020 Lincoln Navigator, but we expect production to start in October for a late-2019 on-sale date.

Pricing also remains unknown, but with no changes coming, we expect the 2020 Lincoln Navigator’s MSRP range to remain similar to the 2019 model, which ranges from $74,500 to $100,890 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Lincoln Navigator will compete with the Cadillac Escalade, INFINITI QX80, and Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class.
