The current generation of Lincoln’s flagship SUV has been around for a while and the 2022 model is bringing some pretty nice updates. This also means that the current generation will remain in production for some more time, probably for another few years. So, it’s easy to conclude that the 2023 Lincoln Navigator will come without more important changes. We are about to see a familiar layout, which includes changes that were presented with the 2022 model year.
You may count on a luxurious SUV, which still has a lot of good things to offer, despite the competition. We like its cabin design, as well as the passenger space. Furthermore, there is a generous list of standard and available equipment, while the cargo area is generous as well. We like how this SUV rides, while the capable turbo V6 ensures pretty good driving dynamics.
Since no significant changes are expected, we presume that the 2023 Lincoln Navigator will hit the market sometime in the second half of 2022.
2023 Lincoln Navigator Design
Design-wise, the 2023 Lincoln Navigator definitely won’t bring any significant change. The current model has just been updated and with all the novelties that were presented, we presume it will remain in production for a few more years. The recent update has brought a new styling, which brings a few interesting updates to the front end. The bumper is new, while the grille has been revised as well.
On the other hand, the mechanical aspect of the SUV remains the same and we presume that the 2023 Lincoln Navigator won’t bring changes either. So, we count on the same ride quality, which is mostly about comfort. You may count on adaptive air suspension, while the Navigator is now one of the rare models that comes with a forward-facing camera, which recognizes bumps and automatically adapts suspension.
On the inside, the 2023 Lincoln Navigator will bring a familiar way of luxury. This SUV comes with a well-built cabin, which looks pretty stylish, especially the dashboard. The materials are nice, while the build quality is great. Also, the seats have been upgraded and now feature improved massaging function. Also, the recent update has brought a bigger, 13.2-inch infotainment screen, which makes the cabin look even more upscale.
When it comes to interior space, there is nothing to complain about. All three rows are generous with space and accommodate adults with ease. Also, you can choose the optional second-row captain’s chairs, for an even higher level of comfort. The cargo area is also pretty generous. You may count on about 20.9 cubic feet of space behind the third row, 63.6 cubic feet behind the second, and 103 cubic feet of the total volume.
We don’t expect that the 2023 Lincoln Navigator could bring too many novelties. The list of the standard equipment should remain pretty much the same. So, base models should come standard with goodies like a 13.2-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, navigation, 14 speakers, satellite radio, six USB ports, wireless device charging, tri-zone climate control, keyless entry etc. Additionally, you can get goodies like a panoramic sunroof, a 20-speaker audio system and a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system.
The same thing is with safety features. The current model comes standard with goodies like a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane keep assist etc. Additionally, you can get goodies like a head-up display, a surround-view parking camera system, automatic park assist, and adaptive cruise control.
2023 Lincoln Navigator Engine
Under the hood, things are about to remain the same. The 2023 Lincoln Navigator will continue with a familiar 3.5-liter V6, which puts out around 450 horsepower. The engine is coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission and everything works just right. The acceleration is quick, while shifts are smooth and on time. Besides good performances, the engine also offers pretty good fuel economy. You may count on about 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
Some sources also speculate about the hybrid version. If this happens, we presume the system would be the same as in the new F-150 Hybrid, with a max output of 430 horsepower. The officials are still quiet about this powertrain option.
2023 Lincoln Navigator Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2023 Lincoln Navigator will arrive sometime in the second half of 2022. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 80.000 dollars. Of course, Cadillac Escalade is the key competitor, but there are also models like Mercedes-Benz GLS, BMW X7 etc.
