For 2018, the Lincoln Navigator underwent a substantial redesign that ushered in a more upscale appearance, a more refined interior, brand-new technology, and an upgraded powertrain with significantly more power. With the paint still drying on this brand-new design, we expect no changes when the 2019 Lincoln Navigator strikes showrooms.
As a carryover model, we prepare for not a single change to the 2019 Navigator’s design. Given its makeover is so fresh, we expect purchaser interest to remain high. The redesign brought in a more upright body with more defined lines, a brand-new grille that’s more Continental-like, and far more.
The interior of the 2019 Lincoln Navigator will be extremely roomy and glamorous. It has 3 rows of seats and it is able to carry approximately 8 travelers. The second row of seats is offered with either two captain chairs or a bench for 3 persons. In the 3rd row can be put even 3 passengers. The seats will be upholstered in leather. The freight space provides the space of 19 cubic feet. Nevertheless, with the second and the third row folded down, there is a room of even 103 cubes. The long-wheelbase Navigator L has much more freight room of more than 34 cubic feet. The control panel is wide and elegant and features a large 10.0-inch touchscreen with Sync 3 infotainment system and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
When it comes to the devices, the base model will come basic with three-zone automated climate control, a rearview electronic camera, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, six USB ports, satellite radio and Revel audio with 14 speakers. The Navigator Select model will include cordless device charging, a heated guiding wheel, a 360-degree video camera and adaptive suspension. The Premiere trim will include a rear-seat home entertainment system, a panoramic sunroof and 30-way power adjustable front seats with rubbing function. The Reserve model will provide Revel audio system with 20 speakers while the Black Label features adaptive cruise control, lane departure caution, park help and so on.
We likewise expect no changes under the Navigator’s hood. Look for its 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine to remain at 450 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission manages shifting duties prior to the power strikes the rear wheels. Optionally, purchasers have the ability to select all-wheel drive.
The current Navigator hasn’t gone through IIHS testing yet, however we prepare for strong crash-test ratings. We likewise picture it’ll be at least a Top Safety Pick, as it has available automatic emergency braking– a requirement for this rating. Keep in mind, however, AEB belongs to the Technology Package that’s available with the Select and Reserve trims, and not the base Premium model.
There is no main release date for the 2019 Lincoln Navigator, but we expect it’ll arrive in late 2018. Prices is likewise not official yet, however we expect it to remain close to the 2018 Navigator’s MSRP range of $73,250 to $98,100 (location fees consisted of). The competition for the 2019 Navigator will include the Cadillac Escalade, the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and the Land Rover Range Rover.
