The previous generation of the full-size luxury SUV was in production for a full decade. However, it looks like the company doesn’t want to do the same thing with the current model. According to the latest reports, the current generation will have a notably shorter lifespan, which indicates that already 2021 Lincoln Navigator could come with some interesting changes in terms of the styling, interior design, features.
This would be a typical facelift, with the focus on the exterior design. On the other side, mechanics are about to remain untouched.
- Powerful engines
- Spacious and luxurious cabin
- Huge cargo area
- Smooth ride
- Infotainment system needs updates
If we can trust the latest reports, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator may receive a big update. This would be a so-called mid-cycle refresh, which would include all kinds of changes, but predominately those aesthetical ones. Simply, the competition will become stronger in the next year, as models like Cadillac Escalade and Mercedes-Benz GLS are about to come completely redesigned.
Therefore, we may see a new face on the 2021 Lincoln Navigator, with revisions on headlights, grille, bumper etc. Still, don’t expect to see anything radical. The new model will continue with a similar styling approach and will retain conventional aesthetics for sure.
When it comes to the interior changes, we probably won’t see too many of them. The 2021 Lincoln Navigator is expected to carry on with the same cabin layout, which is primarily characterized by the excellent overall quality.
You can find hi-end materials everywhere in the cabin, while the dashboard looks very opulent. Moreover, the Navigator is also extremely spacious, with more legroom and cargo volume than almost every other model in the class. Therefore, it would be hard to expect any bigger change than additions in terms of standard features.
As we’ve already mentioned, mechanical changes are not expected for the 2021 Lincoln Navigator. Therefore, we count on the same 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, which delivers a pretty impressive output of 450 horsepower. The engine comes in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission and the ride is generally very smooth.
Fuel economy is also pretty good, as the SUV returns around 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Also, this is one of the most capable luxury SUVs on the market. A max towing capacity goes up to quite impressive 8.700 pounds.
2021 Lincoln Navigator Release Date and Price
A mid-cycle update seems quite likely, so we may presume that the 2021 Lincoln Navigator will arrive a little bit earlier than usual, probably in the third quarter of the next year. When it comes to the price, base models should go around $76,000.
