The new 2020 Lincoln Navigator should arrive sometime in the last quarter of 2019, but this time we don’t anticipate any large changes since it has been fully revamped for the 2018 model year. The Navigator will be available with one engine option under the hood and will come with both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations. It is a full-size SUV with plenty of space and it is a good choice for families.
Beneath the hood of the 2020 Lincoln Navigator
There will be one single engine option for the newest 2020 Lincoln Navigator and it is the same one used in the current and previous model years. It is a 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost twin-turbocharged engine. This unit is able to make 450 horses and 510 lb-ft of torque. The engine will be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and will come rear-wheel drive as standard. However, the all-wheel drive configuration will also be available. Its maximum towing capacity will be up to 8,700 pounds.
Speaking of the fuel efficiency, the RWD standard model gets 16 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg combined. The longer version, Navigator L will be rated at 16/22/18 mpg. The all-wheel drive model is estimated to be 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. The long-body L with all-wheel drive will get 16 mpg city, 21 mpg highway, and 18 combined.
The exterior and interior design of the 2020 Lincoln Navigator
The Navigator has been all-new for the 2018 model year when it has gotten a completely changed, more attractive look. So, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator should get any large changes this time. The front end will be dominated by the rectangular, mesh grille with the Lincoln logo in the middle of it and a pair of large headlamps equipped with LED lighting. The rear end will wear the well-known LED taillights and the large Lincoln letters.
The cabin of the 2020 Lincoln Navigator is very spacious, has ample three rows of seats, and can welcome either seven or eight passengers. The second-row bench can be replaced by the captain’s chairs for two, and the third row can place three adults. The center of the dashboard is dominated by a large 10.0-inch touchscreen which is easy to use and comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The maximum cargo space for the base model, with second and third rows folded down, is 103.3 cubic feet. The larger L model offers the room of 120.2 cubic feet.
The standard 2020 Lincoln Navigator comes standard with automatic climate control, power features, 20-inch wheels, navigation with real-time traffic data, keyless ignition, leather upholstery, a power tailgate, a digital instrument display, and so on. It will also have a 10.0-inch touchscreen, 14 Revel speakers, and six USB ports. The higher trim levels will add 22-inch wheels, power running boards, a wireless smartphone charging pad, surround-view cameras, panoramic roof, audio system with 20 speakers, and many other more.

It is not confirmed yet, but the 2020 Lincoln Navigator might arrive sometime in 2019. The price should remain similar to the current and it starts at around $73,000.
