This fourth generation Navigator model will is being largely awaited in all corners of the world.
2017 Lincoln Navigator Interior and Exterior Redesign
Ford’s top of the line luxury SUV will be packed with some of the best comfort and entertainment features of today. It will have its seats upholstered in shiny leather and have a soft touch materials used in covering almost all of its interior equipments. Although many intricate details have been kept under wraps, we can expect this car to have spacious cabin space that can easily accommodate all its passengers with utmost comfort. There is no word so far regarding its technological features, but we can naturally expect the 2017 Lincoln Navigator to have enhanced versions of current equipment on offer.
We cannot ignore the fact that this car has started to show its age in recent times, so the car company has decided to present this vehicle in a completely new refreshed exterior design that is in sync with modern times. The officials have also hinted at the possibility of this car being available in an exciting range of colours. The major change that this vehicle will go through is at its build quality. Like Ford F-150, the 2017 Lincoln Navigator will be constructed exclusively with aluminium and lightweight steel, thus making it significantly lighter than any of its previous versions. All things included, it would be safe to assume that this car will retain the trademark body features for which Lincoln is known.

Reports state that the company has decided to shelve its current 5.4 litre V8 engine and bring forth a much more compact variant to allow for better fuel economy. A 3.5 litre EcoBoost V6 engine will make an entry under its hood and produce a maximum of 370 hp along with 420 lb-ft of torque. Compared to similarly priced vehicles in this segment, the 2017 Lincoln Navigator clearly has an upper hand due to this engine’s power capabilities.
This engine will get a new transmission system in the form of a 10-speed variant and deliver significant improvements in fuel economy on both city and highway drives. Economy is further enhanced because of this car’s reduced weight, which has been achieved by using aluminium based architecture.
