The Lincoln Navigator went through a much-needed redesign in 2018, bringing in a stunning new look and a range of powerful engines. With this full-size SUV entering only its third model year after a redesign, the 2021 Navigator will be a carryover.
Visually, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator will roll into showrooms boasting the same powerful looks it launched in 2018. This will include its upright glasshouse, powerful body lines, plenty of easy-to-consume chrome, and a Continental-inspired grille.
Inside, the new-generation Navigator did a wonderful job covering its truck roots with a slim instrument panel, dash-top touchscreen, loads of wood and metallic trim, premium upholstery, and much more.
Standard features are virtually boundless in the Navigator and include automatic climate control, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, a digital gauge cluster, navigation, keyless ignition, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, second-row captain’s chairs, 20-inch alloy wheels, a 10-inch infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, a 14-speaker audio system, and more.
Under its hood, we the 2021 Navigator will continue with the same base engine, a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 that pumps 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque through a 10-speed automatic transmission. With the Navigator’s platform-mate, the F-150, reportedly getting a hybrid powertrain, we may see the 2021 Navigator with a hybrid option.
The IIHS has not yet tested the current Lincoln Navigator, but it comes standard with blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and active lane control. Buyers seeking more safety can opt for a 360-degree camera, a head-up display, automatic high-beam headlights, and active parking assist.
Pricing for the 2021 Navigator ranges from $78,125 to $99,075 (including destination fees).
