After the recent complete overhaul, it seems hard to believe in some bigger changes already for the third year of production. The new, fourth-generation model came with plenty of significant improvements. That’s not a wonder at all, considering the fact that the previous model was active for a full decade. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator will most likely continue with the same design. We are about to the same styling, as well as interior design. On the other side, there are some speculations about the plug-in hybrid powertrain. So far, there is no word from the company’s officials, so you should take this with a dose of reserve.
In terms of 2020 Lincoln Navigator exterior, there is no place for surprises. The luxury SUV come with a complete styling last year, heavily based on the 2016 concept version. Compared to the previous generation, it is very easy to notice significant improvement in terms of styling. Besides new aesthetics, this redesign has brought a completely new platform. Once again, it is a derivate of the more famous P platform. Badged as T3 platform, this architecture is in use for the new Ford Expedition as well. Both models are characterized by superior capacities, especially when it comes to towing. When properly equipped, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator will be able to tow up to 8.700 pounds.
The interior design and overall luxury were always the strongest points of this SUV. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator will continue in the same way for sure. The first thing you’ll notice are hi-quality materials. The dashboard looks very attractive, full of horizontal lines. Moreover, it comes with a bunch of tech features. Some of the highlights are 10-inch touchscreen, 14-speaker audio system, three-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio etc. Things like 20-speaker audio system, wireless charging, and panoramic sunroof are also available. This sounds slightly better compared to the models biggest rival Cadillac Escalade. Still, you should consider that GM’s flagship SUV is about completely redesigned next year. At the time 2020 Lincoln Navigator arrives, the Escalade will be very fresh.
For most car enthusiasts, this was the most radical change that came with recent redesign. There is no V8 in the offer anymore. The new model relies on the same 3.5-liter V6 that powers F-150 Raptor. With this one, you can count of full 450 horsepower. This engine is very efficient, so fuel economy is on a high level as well. This huge SUV returns around 16 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway. According to many reports that circulate on the network, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator is about to get a completely new, hybrid powertrain. There are no words about this version from the company, so we can’t say anything more precise at the moment.
