Before the Electric Vehicle movement gets ahold of large SUVs, manufacturers are working diligently to keep what they have fresh and relevant, which is just what Lincoln is doing with the latest Navigator through clever updates and refreshing for the 2022 model year.
The updates for the new 2022 Lincoln Navigator go the distance to potentially place it back in the king of the hill position after Cadillac redesigns their Escalade. To answer back at Cadillac, Lincoln improves upon the same platform with some exterior styling updates that move closer to the attractiveness of the Aviator sibling, in addition to receiving some welcomed interior updates for both luxury and technology.
Engine and Drivetrain
Continuing to power the Lincoln Navigator is the brand’s 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine good for 440 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque and still mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. If you’re taking notice to the new horsepower figure, you’ll wonder why the new Navigator has lost 10 horsepower over the outgoing model years. Well, that change, which isn’t even noticed, is due to an increased compression ratio of the engine leading to added efficiency, which yields an improvement of 1 mpg on the highway for the all-wheel-drive setup. Now, the Lincoln Navigator normal-wheelbase all-wheel-drive gets 22 mpg highway, a slight improvement but the city mileage remains at 16 mpg along with the combined at 18 mpg.
