What's New

The 2022 Lincoln Navigator receives subtle styling upgrades to the front grille, headlights, and rear lights. It is also newly available with Lincoln’s hands-free highway driving system, ActiveGlide, massaging second-row seats, and two new Black Label design themes.

Choosing Your Lincoln Navigator

There are three trim levels offered, the Standard, Reserve, and Black Label and prices range from $79,050 to $105,320. The long-wheelbase model is available in the Reserve and Black Label trims and adds about $3,040 to the price.

Engine Choices

The Navigator is equipped with a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 that develops 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a 10-speed transmission that routes power to the rear wheels or through an optional ($2,700) automatic full-time four-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing which is standard on the Black Label.

Considering its abundant power and mass, the Navigator earns a respectable EPA-estimated 17 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway, and 19 combined rating while the four-wheel-drive models see a one-point deduction. Those figures make the Navigator $1,000 less expensive to fuel annually than the Cadillac Escalade and $1,300 less than the new Jeep Grand Wagoneer despite the Lincoln’s considerable torque advantage.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Navigator sits up to eight passengers when fitted with the no-cost second-row bench seat and it's among the largest SUVs available with a length of 210 inches or 222 inches with the L model and 83.6-inch of width. The extended model doesn’t provide any more legroom for the second-row or third-row passengers, although its 41.1 inches and 36 inches (respectively) will be plenty for most. The L’s main advantage is in the cargo area which increases from 19.3 cubic feet to 34.3 cubic feet behind the third row and delivers 73.3 and 120.2 cubic feet, behind the second and third rows, respectively – that’s more than the Escalade and Grand Wagoneer but less than the Escalade ESV.

While those models can tow over 8,000 pounds, the Navigator can pull the most – up to 8,700 pounds in rear-wheel-drive form, or 8,300 pounds with four-wheel drive.

Safety Features

The base Navigator is well equipped with a full suite of active safety features such as automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot detection with cross-traffic alert and braking, active cruise control with lane-centering and distance indication, lane keep assist, evasive steering assist, intersection assist, reverse brake assist, front and rear parking sensors, active parking assist, automatic high beams, rain-sensing wipers, and a rear camera washer. Lincoln’s hands-free highway driving assist system is called ActiveGlide and is included on the Reserve and Black Label trims.


All Navigators are equipped with a new and larger 13.2-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, and HD compatibility and offer Wi-Fi with remote connected services and over-the-air updates. Navigation is standard, as it should be. The first two trims feature a 14-speaker premium sound system while the Black Label trim is equipped with a 28-speaker upgraded Revel audio package.

There are four 12V power ports, five USB ports, a 110V/ 150 AC outlet, and a wireless charger onboard for charging duties.

2022 Lincoln Navigator – MSRP From $79,050

The base Navigator comes with a long list of notable standard equipment. In addition to the updated satin chrome mesh grille, adaptive LED headlights with automatic leveling, and LED rear lights that better fit with the current brand styling, a new adaptive suspension system utilizes a forward-facing camera to scan the road ahead to predictively smoothen out bumps. The exterior retains its penchant for chrome, and also features 20-inch wheels, power-folding mirrors feature integrated turn signals and auto-dimming on the driver’s side, doors with laminated glass, phone-as-a-key technology, and proximity entry with approach lighting. Once inside, the 10-way heated and ventilated seats, power-adjustable pedals, and a power-adjustable heated wood and leather-trimmed steering wheel help the driver get comfortable. A 12-inch digital gauge cluster, ambient lighting, frameless rearview mirror, wood trim, surround-view camera, power-folding second and third rows seats, and heating and ventilation for the second row bring a luxurious feel.

The Navigator Plus Exterior Package ($1,895) adds 22-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, and power deployable running boards.

2022 Lincoln Navigator Reserve – MSRP From $89,385

The Reserve trim includes the features of the Plus Exterior Package as well as 24-way front seats and a head-up display. The Reserve I Package is $4,195 and integrates extended ambient lighting that includes lighted seat belts and a lighted Lincoln emblem, 30-way front seats with massage, and the premium stereo. The Monochromatic Package ($1,995) is limited to black and white, and cream exterior colors and is fitted with 22-inch black wheels, body-color mirror housings, a monochromatic grille, and a lower body-color bumper accent. The heavy-duty towing package ($940) includes an integrated trailer brake controller, trailer back-up assist, front tow hooks, and a low-speed cruise control system. Massaging second-row seats are a new standalone option for $625.

2022 Lincoln Navigator Black Label – MSRP From $105,320

The Black Label builds off of the Reserve I Package’s features and offers four coordinated exterior and interior colors and materials themes. The two new ones are the Invitation, which focuses on dark colors with black onyx leather seats and leather-wrapped interior panels, and a black suede headliner, and the Central Park which brings walnut wood trim, a dark green leather interior, and a light-colored headliner.

The Special Edition Package is offered for $6,695 and includes 22-inch black wheels, a black-painted roof and roof rails, unique touches on the grille such as a black mesh and unique chrome surround, and black-painted mirror caps.

Enormous Size With Substance. For such a large vehicle, the 2022 Lincoln Navigator certainly looks like it belongs in a well-tailored suit. Few large SUVs manage to look good and hide their substantial size, but that’s what the Navigator does well. With sculpted body lines and an imposing stance, the Navigator is one of the more stylish SUVs on sale.

Lincoln has slightly updated the Navigator’s design for 2022, improving upon the SUV’s already good looks. The Navigator comes with adaptive LED headlights and LED taillights that have a three-dimensional welcome and departure lighting scheme. The grille has also been slightly updated, as has the front end, though things don’t look drastically different.

Major Tech Update. Technology is one of the focal points of the updates on the 2022 Navigator. The SUV’s 10-inch touchscreen has been replaced with a much larger 13.2-inch unit. The larger touchscreen is now running Lincoln’s SYNC 4 infotainment system, which is far more advanced than last year's SYNC 3 system. The new infotainment system brings wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, over-the-air software updates, and a 5G Wi-Fi hot spot.

In the back, passengers get a new 5.8-inch digital module that lets them control the rear climate and audio settings. A rear-seat entertainment system is available that includes a 10-inch screen, wireless headphones, and wireless streaming through Amazon Fire TV. Passengers in the Navigator can also enjoy the rich sound from an available 28-speaker Revel Ultima audio system.

Another new feature that makes its debut for the 2022 model year is Active Glide. It’s Lincoln’s take on a semi-autonomous driver-assist system and allows for hands-free driving on more than 130,000 miles of mapped highway roads in North America. Just like Ford’s Blue Cruise system and General Motors’ Super Cruise, a driver-facing camera keeps an eye on the driver, while the system handles most of the driving. With the new system, the Navigator proves to be a better competitor to the Cadillac Escalade.

Luxurious People Carrier. Even the base Navigator feels more luxurious than the majority of vehicles that compete in the class. For a truly luxurious experience that only a few competitors can match, the Navigator’s higher trim levels are the way to go. With heated and ventilated seats and updated massaging seats in both rows, the Navigator’s cabin spoils passengers. Not to mention, the Navigator’s available 30-way adjustable front seats are some of the most comfortable chairs available in a modern vehicle.

Lincoln has introduced two new themes for its range-topping Black Label trim including the Central Park and Invitation. Both impress with features like open-for wood, laser etched trim pieces, rich leather upholstery, and unique color schemes. While Black Label trims are outrageously expensive, they certainly go big on the luxurious front.

Thanks to the Navigator and available Navigator L’s body large body, the SUV offers an incredible amount of interior space. Both models offer up to 40.9 inches of third-row legroom, which is one of the largest figures for the segment. Cargo volume in the Navigator and Navigator L is equally as impressive, with the former being able to hold up to 103.3 cubic feet of cargo and the latter maxing out at 120.2 cubic feet of cargo space.

Surprisingly Comfortable Ride. Others in the segment come with a V8 engine, but the Navigator continues to come with a twin-turbo V6. While that sounds like the Navigator’s at a disadvantage, that’s not the case. The twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 in the Navigator produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. The V6 engine produces plenty of grunt to get the hefty SUV down the road despite its blocky blueprint.

More impressive than the Navigator’s straight-line performance is the way it handles. Usually, large SUVs with body-on-frame configurations ride like fancy pickup trucks. That’s not the case with the Navigator, which rides far better than the majority of other large SUVs in the class. The SUV comes with adaptive suspension as standard, but for 2022, Lincoln has added a forward-facing camera to prepare the suspension for incoming bumps. This should result in even better ride quality.

As one would expect, the Navigator is far from efficient. Despite coming with a V6 engine, the Navigator still guzzles fuel. Fuel economy figures for the 2022 model aren’t available yet, but the 2021 SUV is rated to get up to 18 mpg combined with rear-wheel drive.

Final Thoughts. The number of large luxury SUVs continues to grow, but the 2022 Lincoln Navigator remains a compelling choice for drivers that want an old-school vehicle. The changes for the 2022 model year make the Navigator more high-tech and luxurious, improving on things it already did well. It may not have the same power or stately handling as some of its rivals, but the Navigator works as a luxury barge.

As competition, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer offers a gorgeous cabin, a dizzying amount of technology, a powerful V8 engine, and a serene ride on the highway. The Cadillac Escalade is brimming with technology, comes with a standard V8 engine, is available with a somewhat efficient diesel engine, offers a generous amount of cargo space, and has a smooth ride that mimics a luxury car.
