2015 Lincoln Navigator: A Truly Full-Size SUV
The Lincoln Navigator has just been “refreshed” and offers a new interpretation of the classic vehicle that created the full-size luxury SUV segment. With a new EcoBoost engine, refreshed exterior design and enhanced interior appointments, the new Lincoln Navigator offers a compelling combination of power and refinement. Outstanding passenger room, towing capability, ride and handling, and fuel economy are attainable for thousands of dollars less than competitors. So what’s the major difference in the 2015 versus last year’s model you ask? Well, the difference is that this is laser focus from the company to make the brand bigger and better and the all new Navigator is right in line and consistent with what Lincoln has already been able to achieve with the MKC and the MKZ.
Exterior design changes are accentuated by the execution of Lincoln’s split-wing grille. The more refined appearance complements enhanced power and hauling capabilities that Navigator customers demand. The sleek front end includes a newly designed hood, and the back end features a power lift gate. Navigator wears jewel-like daytime running lights, as well as high-intensity discharge adaptive headlamps with LED accents. A total of 222 LEDs illuminate the exterior and give Navigator a distinct personality. It also comes standard with 20 inch aluminum wheels and 22 inch wheels when you opt for the Reserve Package. This package also includes tuxedo black or bright stainless steel, power running boards.

Enhancements to the interior include luxurious leather and additional customer-focused technologies such as SYNC with MyLincoln Touch. Power and performance are delivered in a luxuriously quiet environment. Compared with the outgoing model, the new Navigator achieves improved interior quietness and scores a higher articulation index rating (a measure of how easy it is to hear a conversation) courtesy of nearly two dozen vehicle upgrades. Bumper to bumper, roof to floor, the 2015 Navigator was built with a comfortable passenger experience in mind. Acoustic laminated glass, enhanced carpet, headliner and insulated door and floor panels combine to create a quieter interior. The Navigator has long been synonymous with large scale luxury. On the 2015 model, the available Reserve Package introduces a new level of luxury, offering customers:
Updated cabin that extends upgraded premium leather to all three rows of seats, as well as to the armrests, center console lid and gear shift Hand-wrapped leather instrument panel with contrast stitching and leather glove box door Premium Ziricote wood trim, a luxurious natural-grain wood new to the automotive industry that is most commonly used as an accent in yachts.
“The 2015 Lincoln Navigator provides many upgrades over the outgoing model, offering customers — whether loyal Navigator owners or drivers new to the brand — new and compelling reasons to consider driving a Navigator,” said Matt VanDyke, director, global Lincoln.
The 2015 Lincoln Navigator is available in rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive configurations and goes on sale this year with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price starting at $62,475, including destination and delivery charges.
