Lincoln’s flagship model has been around for a couple of years and despite that the competition is coming significantly improved for the next year, we probably won’t see any particular update. The 2021 Lincoln Navigator is about to carry on in the same way, with a familiar design and pretty much the same list of features. Of course, minor tweaks are always possible, but most of the things will definitely remain untouched.
That means that you can count on an excellent SUV, which is strong in pretty much every aspect. The 2021 Lincoln Navigator will offer luxurious and very spacious cabin, with three spacious rows of seats. The list of standard and available features is impressive, while the cargo area is also among the biggest in class. Also, you may count on a powerful V6 engine, which ensures strong towing capacity but remains efficient at the same time. We expect to see 2021 Lincoln Navigator in showrooms in November.
2021 Lincoln Navigator Design
Despite that rivals like Cadillac Escalade have just arrived completely redesigned, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator won’t change too much for the next year. It is still early for a mid-cycle refresh, but we may expect to see it in a year or two. Meanwhile, you may count on the same styling, which is based on the brand’s latest design language. It incorporates lots of classic design solutions, which wasn’t the case with the previous generation.
Mechanical changes are something we definitely don’t expect to see. The 2021 Lincoln Navigator will continue to ride on the same T3 platform. That’s the same one that underprints the current generation F-150 and Expedition. The massive use of lightweight materials is what makes this large SUV pretty efficient, while the level of rigidity is at the same level as the previous generation. The next-year model will carry on with the two body styles in the offer, standard and long-wheelbase version.
When it comes to interior design, minor tweaks in terms of new color schemes and new standard equipment are always possible. However, we don’t expect to see too many of them. The 2021 Lincoln Navigator will mostly carry on in the same way. Therefore, you may count on pretty luxurious dashboard design, full of hi-end materials and great fit and finish. The long list of tech features makes everything look even more opulent.
Besides the luxurious look, this SUV is also characterized by a pretty impressive amount of space. All three rows accommodate adults with ease, while the cargo area is as impressive. You may count on about 21 cubic feet behind the third row, 63.6 cubic feet behind the second and 103 cubic feet of the overall cargo volume. The numbers are even more impressive in the long-wheelbase version. In this model, you may count on about 36 cubic feet behind the third row, 79 cubic feet behind the second and more than 120 cubic feet of the overall cargo space.
There is always a chance to see a couple of additions to the list of standard equipment. Still, we are pretty sure that most of the things will remain the same as for the current model. This would mean a standard list of tech goodies that includes things like a 10-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, navigation, six USB ports, satellite radio, a 14-speaker stereo, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and wireless device charging. The list of options currently includes goodies like a 20-speaker stereo, a rear-seat entertainment system, and a panoramic sunroof.
When it comes to safety features, the current model comes standard with goodies like a pre-collision warning and braking system with pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, automatic high-beam headlights, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and lane keep assist. Things like parallel and perpendicular park assist system, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, and a surround-view parking camera system are available.
2021 Lincoln Navigator Engine
Things under the hood will definitely remain the same. The 2021 Lincoln Navigator will carry on with a familiar 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which puts out a pretty impressive 450 horsepower. The engine works great in a combination with a 10-speed automatic transmission and ensures more than a sufficient amount of power. Besides strong acceleration, you may also count on respectable max towing capacity, which goes up to 8.700 pounds.
When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on pretty good ratings. In numbers, they go around 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
2021 Lincoln Navigator Release Date and Price
According to the latest reports, sales of the 2021 Lincoln Navigator will start in November or early December. We don’t expect bigger changes in price, compared to the current model, which goes around 77.000 dollars. Key competitors are models like Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes-Benz GLS, BMW X7 etc.
