When Lincoln stated that their 2023 Lincoln Navigator would be coming as an all-new design, many auto enthusiasts are excited. Any updates are always welcomed, so having an all new construction would definitely be an exciting thing to enjoy about the ride. And it seems that the tested stage Navigator has been spotted, so it should be more exciting to learn more about the ride.
The Updated Looks
The new Navigator seems to wear many fresh designs and styles, and there are many cosmetic upgrades along the way. The SUV had been updated 3 years ago, but it doesn’t mean that they can’t get new (substantial) modifications on the exterior and interior for the upcoming model. Navigator has been considered one of the biggest SUVs on the market. It is also included as a luxury variant, regardless the trim level.
The Exterior Appearance and Facelift
If everything goes as planned, the new front fascia would be more attractive, thanks to the revised grille extending the height. There would be changes on the headlights too, making them look as if wrapping around the fenders. The rear side has new LED taillights covering tailgate’s length. In the end, the new Navigator looks like the Aviator. Navigator is quite big but it doesn’t compromise the elegance. However, the spied prototype is heavily camouflaged, so it’s hard to see how to the physical visual.
Interior Cabin and Its Changes
Based on the spyshots, it is clearly visible that the 2023 Lincoln Navigator is on its way to launch. Don’t expect too much on the interior arrangement. Since the Navigator isn’t going through any platform change, everything will remain the same. And it includes the interior cabin. The standard cargo capacity for the regular Lincoln is set at around 19.4 cubic feet, and it is located right behind the third row seat. For Lincoln L, the capacity would be around 34 cubic feet.
With three row arrangement, the Navigator is able to accommodate 7 people. For the new production, Lincoln will get inspiration from the Escalade. It will come with huge digital display screen, along with the advanced Revel 16-speaker audio system. For extra touch, the dashboard would be new and you should expect extra system controls. Lincoln will also use the latest and the newest driver assistance techs to improve safety.
Power and Performance
The upcoming 2023 model will be using the same powertrain as the current model. However, the upcoming model’s performance would be better with the V6 twin-turbocharged unit with 3.5 liter capacity. It is going to pair up with rear wheel driving system, or probably the all wheel driving system for optional pick. It also comes with auto 10 speed gearbox that is able to churn 450 hp and 510 Nm of torque. With this powerful arrangement, the Navigator has towing ability to 8.750 pounds.
Will there be hybrid technology? The company doesn’t say anything about it, but according to many sources, they may have been working on the technology. But still, Lincoln doesn’t say a word about the hybrid power. If it’s true that they are planning the new hybrid, it would be an excellent pick related to fuel efficiency.
Price and Release Date
The company hasn’t said anything about their plans for the launch date of Lincoln Navigator. The full size SUV is definitely launching in very late of 2022 or the beginning of 2023. The exact date hasn’t been known, though. For the price, the base trim may start at around $78,000 while the highest trim, Black Label, would cost more than $100,000. For further details about the 2023 Lincoln Navigator, everything should be available in details in the following months.
