Vehicle Profile: 2020 Lincoln Navigator
Big on luxury, big on intelligence and big on presence
Nothing conveys power and prestige quite like a large luxury SUV, and few vehicles in the segment deliver like the 2020 Lincoln Navigator. From the outside, the Lincoln Navigator carries a formidable presence that makes standing out all the easier. Inside the vehicle is a sanctuary for the senses, ideal for traveling in peace and quiet after a hectic workday or with the family in tow on a weekend adventure. With abundant tech, exceptional performance capabilities and a distinctively first-class aura throughout, the new Lincoln Navigator does everything big.
Muscle and might
Powering the Lincoln Navigator is an engine that is every bit as mighty as its appearance: a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 capable of delivering upwards of 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.* Channeling all that power through a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with 10 independent shift points, this engine is equal parts strong and smooth, delivering balanced performance in all driving situations.
With Lincoln Drive Modes, you can customize your experience behind the wheel with standard Slippery, Excite, Conserve, Deep Conditions and Normal settings and an optional Slow Climb mode.** Also standard for the Lincoln Navigator is tow/haul mode, which enables best-in-class max towing of up to 8,700 pounds.*** This means that you won’t just have the power to conquer the open road, but also the might to bring along your adventure gear and navigate treacherous terrain beyond the beaten path.
Every 2020 Lincoln Navigator boasts standard Lincoln Co-Pilot360™, a suite of advanced driver-assistive technologies that work to keep you and your passengers safer. With Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert, Enhanced Active Park Assist, Lane-Keeping System, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward and Reverse Sensing Systems all standard across the lineup, the new Lincoln Navigator is a superior choice when it comes to safety. Available features like a head-up display and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Front Collision Warning only add to the confidence you’ll feel behind the wheel.
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator also offers up plenty of smarts when it comes to keeping you connected and entertained. An available Revel® Ultima Audio System deliberately places 20 speakers throughout the spacious cabin to ensure a high-quality, concert-like experience when you listen to music, which you can control via SYNC® 3 and built-in Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. Backseat passengers can enjoy their favorite shows and entertainment thanks to the available Lincoln Play Rear-Seat Entertainment System, which includes two 10-inch adjustable seat-mounted screens that offer Roku and Slingbox® functionality.
The look of luxury
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator exists at the intersection between brawn and sophistication, giving off an air of power while broadcasting your appreciation for the finer things. The elegance of the Lincoln Navigator is evident in everything from the signature Lincoln grille to high-class features like Lincoln Embrace, which detects your key fob as you approach and greets you with a timed light sequence. With available Lincoln Embrace Plus, that lighting extends to the Lincoln Star logo at the center of the grille, adding an additional layer of brilliance.
New for 2020 is the Monochromatic Package offered for the Lincoln Navigator Reserve. Available in Pristine White, Ceramic Pearl and Infinite Black, this package emphasizes the finer points of the new Lincoln Navigator in a more minimalistic fashion, letting its bold body speak loud and clear.
Might and majesty are key facets of the 2020 Lincoln Navigator, making it an optimal SUV for drivers looking to stand out and make a bold impression. The new Lincoln Navigator is available to test drive at your preferred Lincoln dealership.
