For 2018, the Lincoln Navigator went through a significant redesign that introduced a more upscale appearance, a more refined interior, new technology, and an updated powertrain with considerably more power. With the paint still drying on this new style, we expect no changes when the 2019 Lincoln Navigator strikes showrooms.
2019 Lincoln Navigator Changes
As a carryover model, we anticipate not a single change to the 2019 Navigator’s style. Offered its makeover is so fresh, we expect buyer interest to stay high. The redesign generated a more upright body with more defined lines, a new grille that’s more Continental-like, and far more.
2019 Lincoln Navigator Interior
The interior of the 2019 Lincoln Navigator will be very large and elegant. It has three rows of seats and it is able to bring as much as 8 guests. The second row of seats is offered with either two captain chairs or a bench for three persons. In the 3rd row can be placed even 3 passengers. The seats will be upholstered in leather. The cargo room provides the area of 19 cubic feet. However, with the second and the 3rd row folded down, there is a space of even 103 cubes. The long-wheelbase Navigator L has even more cargo space of more than 34 cubic feet. The control panel is wide and elegant and features a large 10.0-inch touchscreen with Sync 3 infotainment system and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
As for the equipment, the base model will come standard with three-zone automated environment control, a rearview electronic camera, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, 6 USB ports, satellite radio and Revel audio with 14 speakers. The Navigator Select model will add cordless gadget charging, a heated guiding wheel, a 360-degree cam and adaptive suspension.

The Reserve model will offer Revel audio system with 20 speakers while the Black Label features adaptive cruise control, lane departure caution, park help and so on.
2019 Lincoln Navigator Engine
We also anticipate no changes under the Navigator’s hood. Look for its 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine to stay at 450 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automated transmission deals with shifting duties prior to the power hits the rear wheels. Optionally, buyers are able to pick all-wheel drive.
2019 Lincoln Navigator Safety
The current Navigator hasn’t gone through IIHS testing yet, however we expect strong crash-test ratings. We likewise imagine it’ll be at least a Top Safety Pick, as it has offered automatic emergency situation braking– a requirement for this score. Keep in mind, though, AEB becomes part of the Technology Package that’s readily available with the Select and Reserve trims, and not the base Premium model.
2019 Lincoln Navigator Pricing & Release Date
There is no official release date for the 2019 Lincoln Navigator, but we anticipate it’ll show up in late 2018. Prices is likewise not main yet, but we expect it to stay near to the 2018 Navigator’s MSRP range of $73,250 to $98,100 (destination fees included). The competition for the 2019 Navigator will include the Cadillac Escalade, the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and the Land Rover Range Rover.
