2015 sees the Lincoln Navigator receive a refreshed exterior design and a new interior with premium leather and wood trim. The old 5.4-liter V8 is replaced with a new 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, and a new continuously variable dampening suspension allows drivers a choice of three settings.
Other than some new colors, the Lincoln Navigator luxury SUV remains unchanged for 2014.
The Lincoln Navigator was the first full-size luxury SUV introduced to Americans, and it continues to be a force to contend with. Lincoln's 2015 Navigator SUV isn't all-new, but it gets a comprehensive update that covers the exterior, interior, suspension and powertrain. The good news is that while Lincoln has added more luxury, it hasn't taken anything away. Both short-wheelbase (SWB) and long-wheelbase (LWB) 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.
