Black Label is the most exclusive trim level you will find for any Lincoln vehicle. The largest SUV comes with three different packages which will be available in next year as well. Yacht Club, Chalet, and Destination are themes you can choose if the current version. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label is replacing them with Pristine White, Ceramic Pearl, and Infinite Black. Well, the equipment is pretty much the same for all of them. The exterior as well. Differences are in the upholstery and the look of the cabin. Besides that, Black Label trim brings the same upgrades for all three themes.
It is hard to find a rival for the 2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label. Cadillac Escalade doesn’t offer any unique upgrade similar to this one. Mercedes and other German carmakers are focusing on performance, not only the visual appearance. And the drivetrain of the base model is the same for the Black Label. Well, the full-size luxury SUV could get the power from a V8 engine, although twin-turbo V6 works perfectly. It is also competitive in the market where similar vehicles are using V8 powertrains.
Monochromatic Package – Pristine White, Ceramic Pearl, and Infinite Black
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label will offer new suites for its themes. Instead of Chalet, Destination, and Yacht Club, there are Pristine While, Ceramic Pearl, and Infinite Black. According to the press release, the new themes are getting a minimalistic paintjobs, which reflect popular trends in fashion. Of course, designers will have a task to keep everything clean and simple.
The company calls these three updated version – Monochromatic Packages. So far, we know general updates for all of them. More body-color parts are there, including front bumpers, grille details, and mirror caps. 22-inch 12-spoke wheels are standard. Packages will be available late this year and then we will get the complete list of updates for special themes.
The company announced that 9 out of 10 Navigator units they sell are top of the class Black Label trims. Well, the record is not close to the best-selling models in crossover and SUV segment. Last year Lincoln sold 18,000 copies. So, it is about 16,000 Black Labels sold. The new themes are going to refresh the interest. Also, the new Navigator will add more standard equipment. The price is not unveiled yet. Top of the line models will cost more than before, with possibility to hit a six-digit number.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label Accessories
The list of features for each 2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label model is pretty long. Center console and door panels are in wooden trim, and right in the middle of that is a 12-inch touchscreen display. Safety is on the higher level thanks to the blind-spot system. Ambient lighting is another accessory that boosts overall impression.
Other notable standard features are sun visor with climate automatic temperature control, cruise control, active noise control, rain sensing windshield wipers, and hill descent control (AWD models). Infotainment system brings Sync3 upgrade, WayApp, navigation, Ravel Ultima sound with 20 speakers, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
While the themes are making a difference, the exterior of the 2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label is the same. Body colored bumpers and spoilers, and chrome roof rails are notable upgrades. At the rear end we can find dual exhaust system. LED lamps are everywhere – in daytime running lights, fog lights, and even the Lincoln Signature Lighting is using it.
Optionally, you can purchase the Black Label trim with long wheelbase. It will cost $3,300 more than the standard model. Navigator L Black Label is offering 125 cubic feet of total cargo space. The base version is also pretty spacious with 103 cubic feet with all seats folded. With two rows up, there are 64 cubic feet, and behind the third row Navigator comes with 19 cu.ft. Ground clearance is 11 inches.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label Powertrain
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label uses the same engine as the standard vehicle. So, this is not a performance-oriented version. The company pays more attention to cosmetic updates. On the other hand, the existing V6 is tuned to maximize the performance. Twin-turbo system helps it burst 450 hp and 510 pound-feet of torque. It beats the outputs of its direct rivals with V8 units. For example, Lexus LX and Toyota Land Cruiser can develop 380 horsepower, while the Cadillac Escalade creates 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of twist.
Well, the downside, as you can expect, is fuel economy. Small displacement helps a bit, but the best Navigator Black Label can do is 18 mpg (standard wheelbase and 2WD). Fully loaded, the gas mileage drops to 17 mpg. The new 10-speed automatic gearbox helps, but the influence is not big at these high-performance versions. Well, when you pay $100,000 for the SUV, then you don’t worry too much about the gas prices and fuel economy.
