The 2015 Lincoln Navigator gets a freshly styled nose and tail, bringing it in line with the "wing" grille on other new Lincoln vehicles. It also gets a new interior with premium leather and wood trim. Under the hood is a new 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, replacing the 5.4-liter V8.
For 2010, Lincoln adds a number of new standard features including an expanded three-year subscription to SYNC communications with 911 Assist, vehicle health reports and traffic, direction and information service. Other new standard features include power deployable running boards, Trailer Sway Control and the programmable MyKey system.
Lincoln further simplifies the Navigator lineup by adding more standard equipment to the L and bundling the remaining options into the Elite package. New for 2009 is a Monochrome Limited Edition package that replaces most of the lower exterior chrome trim with body-colored pieces.
With the deletion of the Ultimate trim, the base model receives more standard equipment, including a power rear liftgate, PowerFold third-row seat, heated and cooled front seats, SIRIUS Satellite Radio and the 14-speaker THX II-certified premium audio system. The Rearview Camera is now available on both the standard and L trims.
Some may question why Ford is introducing new full-size truck-based Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators when the U.S. market for big SUVs is shrinking due to high gas prices. But there is no suitable replacement for folks who need to carry a lot of people and cargo in weather- and theft-protected security and be able to tow those heavier trailer loads.
The Lincoln Navigator was the first full-size luxury SUV, and it continues to be a force to contend with in the segment. The 2015 Lincoln Navigator isn't all-new, but it gets a comprehensive update that covers the exterior, interior and powertrain. The good news is that while Lincoln has added more luxury, it hasn't taken anything away. Both standard-length and long-wheelbase L models get a new twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine offering more power and torque and better fuel economy than the old V8, while still offering best-in-class towing capacity of up to 9,000 pounds. With new technology and a substantially upgraded interior, the new Navigator should still be able to hold its own against similarly upscale SUVs like the Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and Infiniti QX80.
