2017 Lincoln Navigator
In the class of luxury full-size SUVs, Lincoln Navigator is definitely one of the few key players on the market. It was originally launched in 1997 and so far, we have seen three generations of it. Although company did some big refreshment for 2015 year model, the next-generation model is already on its way and it is expected to come by the end of 2016 as 2017 Lincoln Navigator.
2017 Lincoln Navigator redesign
Although 2015 year model comes with many changes, it is still basically the same SUV that was launched eight years ago and it is definitely non-competitive in many aspects, compared to competition. The 2017 Lincoln Navigator will come with many improvements and one of the most important novelties is that new model will have aluminum body. It will feature very similar body structure as new F-150, which combines lightweight materials such as aluminum and high-strength steel. Compared to its predecessor, new F-150 is around 700 pounds lighter and similar results are expected with new 2017 Navigator. Just like current model, it will be offered both in standard and long-wheelbase variants and both versions will feature three rows of seats.
When it is about SUV’s outside look, new model will completely follow company’s new design language so expect to see features like large split-wing grille and LED headlights. Compared to other models in this segment, current model is pretty much outdated when it is about technologies, so expect to see 2017 Lincoln Navigator with significant improvements in segments like safety, entertainment, infotainment system, fuel economy etc.
2017 Lincoln Navigator engine
One thing is definitely for sure, 2017 Lincoln Navigator won’t be available with V8 unit. Company already removed large and thirsty 5.4 liter V8 engine for refreshed 2015 model. The next-generation model will continue in the same direction and it will be offered with some of new, more advanced EcoBoost V6 engines, which will have similar amount of power, but much better economy. The 2017 Navigator will probably use new 10-speed automatic transmission, which Ford develops together with General Motors. It is also very possible that new model will be offered with some of the company’s hybrid configuration.
2017 Lincoln Navigator release date
Although fourth-generation model is still in the phase of development, it is expected that it will come until the end of 2016. According to rumors, it will come in the fall of 2016 as 2017 Lincoln Navigator.
