Lincoln’s full size SUV is getting a well-deserved redesign. New 2016 Lincoln Navigator will be hitting the market with some exciting changes and updates.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR
Luxury design of the new 2016 Lincoln Navigator will be seen both on the exterior and on the interior. The body of the new model will be made out of aluminum which will result in the weight reduction of around 700 pounds. It will be equipped with a set of 20-inch wheels that come as a standard, while 22-inch wheels will also be available. From the outside, new model will have an aggressive and powerful appearance and it will keep its recognizable boxy shape. The front side of the vehicle will feature a familiar split-wing grille as well as square-shaped LED headlights. Taillights will also be redesigned. The size of the cabin will remain the same but new model will definitely come with many updated features that will make this generation of Navigator more user-friendly. Bose 11-speaker sound system, MyLincoln Touch infotainment system, dual climate control, cruise control, and electric power steering wheel, are just some of the many great features that will be included.
2016 LINCOLN NAVIGATOR ENGINE
We will also see some nice changes under the hood of the new model. This generation of Navigator will likely come with only one engine option. This will be a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine that will be capable of delivering 370 horsepower and up to 430 lb-ft or torque. This unit will be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission system. Both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive system will be available. Even though the fuel efficiency will still not be at the top level, there will be some improvements from the previous generation. Fuel ratings for the new 2016 Lincoln Navigator are at 13 mpg for the city drive and 18 mpg on the highway.
