The 2020 Lincoln Navigator is set to launch all over the country in just a few short months. As one of the most popular vehicles within its class, the Navigator is loaded to the brim with class, design, and performance. And the new 2020 Navigator is set to be better than ever, with even more standard features being added to the already-impressive list.
The Lincoln Navigator: what’s new for 2020
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator will hit dealerships around November 2019 and Lincoln-enthusiasts can’t wait to see what the most recent Navigator is made of. Even though the Navigator just received a redesign in 2018, according to The Lincoln Motor Company, the Navigator is the “most awarded luxury SUV in its class,” and they don’t plan on disappointing. With 66% of Navigator sales coming from owners that have left another car brand and 90% of buyers choosing a more expensive trim level, it’s clear that the Navigator’s features set it apart from other in its class. The newest Lincoln Navigator will include everything you’d expect from a Navigator, but with more standard features than ever seen before.
What comes standard
This year, Lincoln is adding a suite of standard tech features that rival even their biggest competitors. Lincoln’s Co-Pilot360 system has been added into other vehicles in the lineup and will now be featured on the 2020 Navigator. The package includes a variety of safety features and technology, standard in every trim level. Included in the Navigator’s Co-Pilot360 package will be pedestrian detection, automatic high-beam headlights, blind-spot detection with cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, dynamic emergency brake support, lane-keeping assistance with driver alert, and a rear-view camera with washing functions.
According to Car and Driver, the 2020 Navigator will also come with a wireless charging pad for smartphones, power running boards, and front-row seats with heat and ventilation. New owners will also be able to use new Phone-As-A-Key tech that allows you to lock, unlock, open the liftgate, and start the Navigator without a key, via the Lincoln app available on most smartphones.
Current Lincoln Navigators already come standard with impressive features like multiple drive modes, rain-sensing wipers, an advanced infotainment system with a 10-inch touchscreen, leather- and wood-trimmed interiors, tri-zone automatic temperature controls, and a universal garage door opener. According to The Lincoln Car Company, Navigators also come with a suite of safety features, forward and reverse sensing system, adaptive LED headlamps, Active Noise Control within the cabin, and an adaptive suspension system smooths out the drive “by isolating the vehicle from road imperfections.”
Standout features for 2020
Alongside new standard features in every Navigator comes the quality and performance you’d expect from Lincoln. The 2020 Navigator will most likely be offered with a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, with a 10-speed automatic transmission, according to the people at Motor 1. You should expect new, opulent-yet-minimalist interiors, as well as ample leg and cargo space, with third-row seating. With quick acceleration, as well as quiet and solid handling, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator will perform as impressively as the others that have come before it.
The new 2020 Navigator will also see additional, new color designs on higher-end, Reserve models. This new design consists of three exterior color palette choices: Pristine White, Ceramic Pearl, and Infinite Black. Known as the Monochromatic package, RoadShow by CNET states that this design is a minimalistic and “reserved aesthetic,” without minimizing the chrome typically seen from the Navigator.
With more standard features going into the 2020 Navigator than we’ve ever seen before, Lincoln may not be giving up their top rank in luxury SUVs any time soon.
