2016 Lincoln Navigator

Lincoln is a company that has tough period of time and they were not competitive on many segments. Now, US based company is trying to get back on track with brand new vehicles, and among them 2016 Lincoln Navigator. This is what company needs in its transformation – modern vehicle with good price. We assume they took some of the Ford’s approach in order to boost their market sale records and compatibility among buyers.

Under the hood of the 2016 Lincoln Navigator is EcoBoost 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. This powertrain replaced old 5.4-liter V8 as an only option for new Navigator. Engine is capable to deliver 370 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. It makes 5 horses and 10 lb-ft more than new F150 produces. Power is sent through six-speed automatic gearbox to rear- or all-wheel drive, this is at buyer’s choice. Estimated fuel economy rate is not announced yet, but Lincoln promised for 2016 Navigator as one of the most economical vehicle in the class.

New 2016 Lincoln Navigator will use same architecture as its predecessors. It will carry over familiar look with a lot of sheetmetal all over its body. Refreshment comes with redesigned grille. Single-outlet exhaust pipe is not what we expected, as well as full-width taillight. Inside, situation is somehow brighter. Dashboard is revisited and modernized. Control stash and instrument board is updated, while speedometer is now digitalized with two screens showing speed of 2016 Navigator. Company has installed its MyLincoln Touch infotainment system with a lot of functions.

2016 Lincoln Navigator competition, price and release date

Expectations from 2016 Lincoln Navigator are big. This vehicle should establish Lincoln back to where it was 10 years ago. Market of luxury SUV doesn’t offer too many 8-seaters which can tow 9000 pounds. With estimated price around $60.000, probably under this mark, 2016 Navigator promises shake in its class. There, it will face competition in top models from world leaders in many classes, such as Mercedes-Benz GL-class, Infiniti QX80 or Cadillac Escalade. We expect to see Lincoln Navigator 2016 until the end of this year, as 2016 year model, but market sale will start somewhere in 2015.
