The 2023 Lincoln Navigator prototype has been spied testing for the first time. This SUV received a complete redesign in 2018, bringing a more attractive design and many upgrades.
However, according to the latest spy shots, the forthcoming model will also gain some exterior tweaks, separating it from the full-size Ford Expedition cousin. As one of the best SUVs in the segment, we should also expect it to come with a significant technology boost inside. From many reports, the new Navigator will arrive sometime in 2022 as the 2023 model.
2023 Lincoln Navigator Facelift
The full-size luxury SUVs segment dominates on the market over the years. Basically, there are plenty of models available, but small numbers can rival this incredible SUV. Caught on the streets near Ford’s global headquarters in Dearborn, the new 2023 Lincoln Navigator features a more attractive front fascia thanks to a revised grille that grows in height.
Also, redesigned headlights are present, and it seems that they are wrapped further around on the fenders. At the back, we noticed a new signature LED taillights that span the tailgate. Overall, it’s evident that the new Navigator will borrow cues from the handsome Lincoln Aviator.
There is one image available inside of the 2023 Lincoln Navigator. Considering that it uses the same platform as its predecessor, we don’t expect any changes at all. Behind the regular Navigator’s 3rd-row seat is 19.3 cubic feet of luggage space, while Navigator L provides a cavernous 34 cubic feet.
So, the three rows remain, and the Navigator is capable of fitting seven passengers. On the technology side, the upcoming model adopts the same sizable digital displays available in Escalade. The infotainment system bundles navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, six USB ports, wi-fi, and a high-end 16-speaker Revel audio system. Besides, the dash is revamped, and we expect more controls that will be relegated to the system.
2023 Lincoln Navigator Engine Specs
Like the current generation, the 2023 Lincoln Navigator should continue to use the same powertrain option. This model delivers excellent performance thanks to a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine.
Like before, the Navigator is available either with rear wheels or all four wheels drive. It makes 450 horses and 510 pound-feet of torque, sending power through a 10-speed automatic transmission. If you didn’t know, this powerful engine allows towing up to 8.700 pounds. However, as per the latest gossips, the manufacturer alongside this engine might also introduce a new hybrid system. By the way, Lincoln is still quiet about it.
How Much Is the 2023 Lincoln Navigator?
There is no on-sale date set for the 2023 Lincoln Navigator. However, it could arrive in the fall of the following year. Generally speaking, this is information based on Lincoln’s previous schedules.
Pricing is also unconfirmed, but many believe that the new SUV will remain close to the current model. Depending on trim level, the price of this model varies. For example, the model with standard equipment costs $77,480, while the fully loaded can reach the $102,000 MSRP range (destination fees included). Comparing with other models in the class, the most closest competitors are the Infiniti QX80, and the Land Rover Range Rover.
