The new 2017 Lincoln Navigator is an excellent choice for people who still prefer traditional crossover SUVs. For 2017, it gains several refreshments on its exterior and interior, with much of the changes taking place on the latter. It features a powerful V6 engine, an updated infotainment system, and a spacious and well-appointed cabin.
2017 Lincoln Navigator Release Date & Price
Its release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017, at least according to recent industry rumors. Pricing has already been announced by Lincoln, and is unchanged over the previous model which demands an MSRP starting from $63,195.
Just like the model it replaces, the new Lincoln Navigator is typically less expensive than comparable rivals, offers a plush riding quality, and both passenger and cargo space are plenty. On the flipside though, the Navigator comes with a few low-quality interior materials, is difficult to park, and high-end features are scarce.
Granted, the Lincoln Navigator 2017 comes in a segment awash with a plethora of vehicles – that are better riding, offer plenty of standard features for the money, and upscale material quality. However, it still remains within the endangered segment of truck-based crossovers that surprisingly still command some respect from traditionalists. On a plus side, the Navigator, in addition to the aforementioned features, offers lots of interior space, a stout towing capability, a three-row seating capacity, and an overflowing flare of American style.
The Lincoln Navigator interior for the 2017 year model has been updated and now features a better responding Sync 3 powered infotainment system and gull wing doors that were a bit of a surprise during the 2016 New York Auto Show. Also, it comes stuffed with plenty of accessories for the money even for the most basic model.
Beneath the hood, it comes with a familiar 3.5L turbocharged V6 engine that sends a whopping 380 horsepower to either the rear wheels or all wheels via the six-speed automatic transmission system. When properly equipped, a towing capacity of about 9,000 pounds can be expected for the RWD Navigator.
On the flipside however, its massive weight takes a toll on its maneuverability, fuel economy, handling, and parking. We recommend you shop around first before committing to the Navigator especially if you’re not planning to optimally tap into the Navigator’s capabilities more often. For those looking for something engaging and fun without losing much on utility, here are some options you can consider: Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, and 2017 Cadillac Escalade.
