2016 Lincoln Navigator

Ever since its launch, the Lincoln Navigator has had a lot of success making it one of the most fancied vehicles by the top cream of the society. However the current edition which was launched back in 2007 has not lived up to the standards of its predecessor. This can be mostly attributed to increased competition from other vehicles in the same class e.g. Cadillac. Despite getting a facelift for the 2015 year there is likely not going to be a significant change in its up take. However, all that is set to change with the coming of the 2016 Lincoln Navigator in mid 2016.

The 2016 Lincoln Navigator is set for a redesign with speculation going around that they might decide to go for an aluminum body in order to bring down the weight. Similar luxurious SUV have gone the aluminum way and have seen a drop in their overall weight by more than half a tone which is good for their performance. In order to keep up with the competition many observers see them heading this direction although it has not yet been officially confirmed. The general look of the new Lincoln will be the same as its predecessor with the exception of minor changes.
