The first 2023 Lincoln Navigator prototype has been spotted testing. In 2018, this SUV was completely redesigned, with a new look and several updates. The new model will, however, have significant cosmetic changes that will set it apart from its full-size Ford Expedition relative.
As one of the greatest SUVs in the market, we should expect major technological upgrades. There are rumors that the new Navigator will be available in the first quarter of 2023. We expect to see numerous updates on this SUV and here’s everything we know about it so far.
2023 Lincoln Navigator Facelift
The full-size luxury SUV segment has long dominated the market. Basically, there are many models, but only a few can match the 2023 Lincoln Navigator. The Navigator has a more appealing front fascia thanks to a redesigned grille that expands in height. The headlights have been modified and appear to be wrapped around the fenders. The rear has new LED taillights that span the tailgate.
Overall, the new Navigator looks a lot like the gorgeous Lincoln Aviator. Of course, all Lincoln’s models are incredibly stylish and Navigator is no different, despite larger dimensions. Spy shots are clearly suggesting some dramatic cosmetic upgrades and we hope to see even more updates once the camo comes off.
One image of the 2023 Lincoln Navigator interior is available. We don’t expect any changes since it uses the same platform as its predecessor. The normal Navigator has 19.3 cubic feet of luggage space behind the 3rd-row seat, while the Navigator L has 34.
Once again, the Navigator can accommodate seven passengers in three rows. The new vehicle will have the same large digital display as the Escalade. A high-end 16-speaker Revel audio system is on offer, along with the infotainment system. Also, the dash gets redesigned, and we expect more system controls. Lastly, Lincoln will introduce the newest driver-assistance aids, for improved safety.
Reliable V6 Gasoline Engine
The forthcoming 2023 Lincoln Navigator should retain the same powertrain option as the current model. A twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine gives this model great performance. The Navigator is still available with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. It has 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque with a 10-speed automated transmission. This strong engine can tow up to 8.700 pounds.
But, according to recent rumors, the manufacturer may potentially develop a new hybrid system. Lincoln, by the way, is still silent about it. Surely, hybrid power will be a great addition, especially in terms of fuel efficiency.
What Is the 2023 Lincoln Navigator Price?
The upcoming 2023 Lincoln Navigator has no established release date. However, the full-size SUV will surely arrive later in 2022 or in early 2023. Pricing is also not available, however many expect it to be similar to the present model. The price of this vehicle varies depending on the trim level. For example, the base model costs $77,500, while the fully-loaded variant costs over $100,000.
