Big bold and beautiful, the 2020 Lincoln navigator redefines the American luxury SUV. While the argument could always be made that the Navigator was fantastic, nothing compares to the stunning design and overwhelming luxury of the latest iteration of Lincoln’s full-size masterpiece.
The spacious, well appointed interior provides plenty of room for seven or eight passengers. The front seats are almost infinitely adjustable and second two rows are spacious and provide adequate legroom. All things considered, the 2020 Navigator could take the “Family Cross-Country Adventure vehicle” award.
The Navigator is available in four different trim levels: Premiere, Select, Reserve and Black Label. Lincoln offers an extended wheel base in select trims. Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive is available.
Lincoln’s Navigator features bold exterior styling. The SUV’s oversized front grille is framed by premium LED lighting. A straight beltline separates the SUV’s windows from the large doors and bright chrome trim shines throughout.
The base Navigator includes 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, running lights and fog lights. All trims feature a capless fuel filler, hands-free power liftgate, dual exhaust and active grille shutters.
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator’s interior sets a new standard for family comfort. The nicely-appointed cabin features leather upholstery and plush carpets. Front seats are highly adjustable, heated and ventilated (optionally). Second row seating includes two heated captain’s chairs and a center console or an optional three passenger bench seat. While not as spacious as the first two rows, third-row bench seats are power reclining and work well for two adults.
Lincoln’s Navigator provides 19.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row of seats and 57.5 and 103.3 cubic feet behind the second and first rows. Those numbers increase to 34.3/73.3/120.2 cubic feet in the extended wheelbase L models.
A 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine delivers 450 horsepower and 513 pound-feet of torque. That powerful V6 sends power to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, four-wheel drive optional. Lincoln’s towing package means the great looking SUV can pull up to 8,700 pounds.
Fuel economy in the 4×4 models is rated at 16/21 mpg city/highway. Rear-wheel drive models see a modest bump at an EPA-estimated 16/23 mpg city/highway.
Lincoln’s powerful engine and smooth shifting transmission help make the massive SUV feel light on its feet. Sure, the suspension is tuned for comfort, but the Navigator feels ready and handles everyday city driving with ease. Lincoln’s optional surround-view camera and parking sensors help make parking and maneuvering in small areas less stressful.
The 2020 Navigator features a WiFi hot spot, push-button start and remote start. The base infotainment system features a 10-inch touchscreen display, 14-speaker audio, Bluetooth, USB ports, satellite radio and navigation. Apple CarPlay and Android Audio are also included.
