With all this talk of sedans and crossovers, you might think we’ve forgotten that Lincoln also makes one of the most well-known full-size SUVs. That’s not quite correct. We haven’t forgotten anything. We’ve just been waiting.
Waiting for the reveal of the 2015 Lincoln Navigator.
Unveiled yesterday, Lincoln is pleased to finally put a fresh face on its luxury truck. From the sides, you won’t notice much difference in the 2015 Nagivator, unless it’s dark outside and the lamps under the mirrors are on. From the front it looks totally different, though. Lincoln’s signature split-wing grille looks handsome on the Nav, and the headlights now have LED accents and fog lights.
Inside, you’ll have the option of three different name brand leathers for all three rows of seats, plus ambient lighting and the latest MyLincolnTouch infotainment display. The Navigator retains its unrivaled cargo space, too, with more than 100 cubic feet behind the front seats of the standard trim level, and nearly 130 cubic feet in the Navigator L. An upgrade will also season the interior with Ziricote wood trim, a brand synonymous with luxury yachts.
What Lincoln may be the most proud of, however, is the renewed power under the 2015 Navigator’s hood. It makes perfect sense to continue harnessing the efficient strength of the 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 for 370 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Early estimates give the new Nav a best-in-class 9000 pounds of towing. All of this will of course be riding on Lincoln’s Continuously Controlled Damping system.
The 2015 Lincoln Navigator will be available late this year, but it makes its public debut next month at the Chicago Auto Show. For more information, see the Motor Trend first look, or leave a comment, email email@example.com, or contact us at Leith Lincoln.
