2023 Lincoln Navigator

The redesigned variant, 2023 Lincoln Navigator, will be available next year. If you didn’t know, this SUV is one of the best on the market and is ranked #4 in the segment. It’s recognized for its beautiful front end that dominates. On top of that, this model includes three rows of seats, offering room for an seven people. The cabin is quite comfortable, and there is enough room for all passengers.

Although, expect the new model to feature more luxury trim levels and more standard features. As we heard, Lincoln is currently working on a handful of new features that will make this SUV even more competitive. Besides the base model, the manufacturer will also offer a Navigator L (extended length model).

2023 Lincoln Navigator Facelift

As we’ve reported, the upcoming 2023 Lincoln Navigator is preparing to undergo several changes for the following year. So, while this news isn’t surprising, we expect this model to receive mid-cycle updates. First of all, these updates will also include a revised exterior, resulting in more attractive styling.

The front and rear fascia’s will be revised, featuring more bolder grille and the same shaped headlights. As is the case currently, the new SUV will continue as a full-size and with a two body style configurations. There is a compact base model, measuring 210-inches, while Navigator L comes with an extended length of 222-inch. As you can see, the L model is 12 inches bigger, which is very noticeable, especially inside. We expect the extended-length Navigator L to be offered in Standard, Reserve, and Black Label trim levels.

Interior Upgrades

Thanks to a modified Ford T3 platform, the 2023 Lincoln Navigator should provide a more roomy cabin, especially the L Navigation model. The Ford Expedition uses the regular T3 platform, and it could also receive the same treatment in the following year. First thing first, Navigator’s cabin is one of the most spacious in the class, thanks to excellent arrangements inside. With three rows of seats, the Navigator offers enough room for seven passengers. Behind the Navigator’s 3rd-row seat is 19.3 cubic feet of luggage space, while Navigator L provides a much more, a 34 cubic feet.

From the available information, the revised interior is on the way. Blue Oval will reportedly introduce a landscape-oriented infotainment system different from the vertically-oriented screen used in the Ford Expedition. Besides, the manufacturer offers Navigator with tri-zone automatic climate control, power-folding 2nd-row and 3rd-row seats, ambient cabin lighting, navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, six USB ports wi-fi, and a high-end 16-speaker Revel audio system.

Powertrain Specs

Like before, the 2023 Lincoln Navigator will most likely remain unchanged in the engine department. Even though, the engine is still powerful and it delivers excellent performance. It consists of a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 450 horses and 510 pound-feet of torque. On top of that, the Navigator is available with either rear wheels or all four wheels drive.

Besides, we also expect Ford to introduce a hybrid that will most likely use a Ford 3.5L PowerBoost V6 that should produce 430 horses and 570 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission is available on all units, and expect base model to tow up to 8.700 pounds, which is excellent.

How Much is the 2023 Lincoln Navigator?

The pricing of the new 2023 Lincon Navigator will probably remain the same. So the base level will start at $77,500, while the fully-loaded can easily excess 100k.

We expect the latest Navigator to be fully revealed later in the year. However, sales could start next year. In the same class are many excellent SUVs, and the most closest enemies are Infiniti QX80 and the Land Rover Range Rover.
