Lincoln has pinned its hopes on the upcoming 2016 Lincoln Navigator to carry forward the brands name and amend the features that plagued its previous release. This is a luxury SUV that will be looking forward to creating a revolution in terms of power, performance and fuel economy and that too at a reasonable price tag. Contrary to natural expectations, Lincoln has decided to base this car on its older variant while introducing some refreshments to both its exterior and exterior. From what we could understand, Lincoln is expecting this car to blaze the trails and make way for other cars following it.
2016 Lincoln Navigator Engine Specs
The 2016 Lincoln Navigator will likely be offered in just one single engine, as per our sources. Under the hood, it will have a 3.5 litre twin-turbo V6 engine that has the capability to produce a horsepower of up to 370 and torque of 430 lb-ft. The advantage this engine has over the ones fitted inside its competitors is that they are likely powered by an 8-cylinder variant that is bound to have lesser fuel economy rate. This engine will possibly be mated to a 6-speed auto transmission gearbox and come in all-wheel and rear-wheel drive system.
2016 Lincoln Navigator Interior Design
Cosmetic changes are at large inside the Lincoln Navigator 2016. It is characterized by the usage of quality materials along with attractive techno packages. Lincoln’s trademark giant dashboard has got an overhaul and now comes adorned with soft-to-touch materials. Extensive use of plastic has also been made in other places, such as vents located on the centre stack. While this decision might not have helped the car to look more luxurious but it has certainly improved its cost effectiveness. Seats are to be covered with quality leather and provide excellent comfort throughout.
MyLincoln Touch infotainment system has been fixed inside of 2016 Lincoln Navigator, which will boost up the car’s value in leaps and bounds. This attractive package includes options to control radio, fan speed and a great audio system. The car company will revert to its older tried and tested knobs and buttons control instead of touchscreen system.
2016 Lincoln Navigator Exterior Modifications
2016 Navigator shares its seven year old platform that is found in its predecessor. The car’s dimensions are the same along with its architecture. Its exterior is to be covered with the same type of sheet metal except on its hood and tailgate. The front grille has attained a split-wing design, which makes this car looks muscular in appearance. Rear light design is rather disappointing as it seems that they have tried too hard in replicating those found in Dodge Durango. Overall, this car has attained an aerodynamic shape to help with better handling.
2016 Lincoln Navigator Release Date and Price
The upcoming 2016 Lincoln Navigator might not have all that it takes to compete with its rivals in terms of visuals, but it more than makes up because of its under the hood features. Expect this car to release near the end of 2015 and cost slightly higher than the model currently available on offer.
