The new 2017 Lincoln Navigator has already been announced. It papers that the one that we have seen a short time ago at the Chicago Auto Show will not get to stick around for too long, which makes it redundant in a way. This may or may not be true but we could do with a few tweaks the the current model of the Navigator, but the question is do we need them this soon. Well whether we do or not the new 2017 Navigator may hold all the answers to us once it gets released next year.
The current ones did get a number of refreshing features and added some things that reshaped the majority of the faults the vehicle had but we are still looking for more things which will make it great. This update my hold the answer that we seek as the Navigator was once a legendary automobile which was popular back in its day. The Navigator has been here for a decided already as its first generation model has been issued in 2007.
What the greatest news about this model is the aluminum structure it is going to us as it will help it reduce and shed a lot of weight for the end product. There have been some announcements that put the same platform that was used with the 2015 Ford F-150 into play here. If it does the results might be just what they planed them to be as the same platform worked for the F-150 car so we feel that it might do the same here.
Whatever the case, we feel excited to see the new 2017 Lincoln Navigator roll out and we are helping you to find out as much as you can about it through this review. Read all the specs and keep an eye out for the exclusively released pictures.
2017 Lincoln Navigator release date and price
The vehicle has been rumored that it may come out as early as this year already but the predictions of the release date for the 2017 Lincoln Navigator is going to be in the end of 2016 is too slim. We feel that the car is going to come out in its designated time in 2017 with the middle or the later part being a more appropriate time table. The price is something that has been rumored a lot as well and there is a figure of around $ 35 250 circling this model. if it does get to cost that much it will give in an edge compared to the Ford Expedition , Infiniti QX80, Cadillac Escalade and any other rival it is going against out there.
Engine setup and news
The current engine for the Lincoln Navigator is the 5.4 liter Triton V8 engine, but it appears that the 2017 Lincoln Navigator will get a new one under its hood. Some speculations say that the 2017 version of the truck will get the 3.5 liter V6 engine which will in turn grant a power output of 370 horsepower and 430 pounds-feet of torque for the car. There are some thoughts about using a 3.6 liter engine as well but this one should have to be enhanced in terms of fuel economy which what needs to be done for this kind of an engine to be utilized. Finally there are talks about a hybrid powertrain as well but no confirmation about that as well.
2017 Lincoln Navigator exterior changes
The current Navigator has not been long on the market but we are already getting a 2017 Lincoln Navigator already packed and ready. The new model plans to expand on the shortcomings of the current one and will add some new design features and characteristic to the model. First of all the already mentioned weight cut is a big deal and is something that they have planned for a long time. By using an aluminum base it can be done and the one that they may borrow from the F-150 is perfect for the job. It will make the vehicle lighter and enable better fuel economy for the car by a long shot.
This is something that the future Navigator vehicles might benefit from in a large matter. The competition is already turning to a lightweight solution so why not follow suite while there is still time. Changing the platform is just the beginning as there are some other tweaks that need to be made to we get a complete setup. Expect a number of changes which consider weight reduction all over the car. They plan to reduce the car by a whole of 700 pounds in its weight and it will enhance both the performance and the fuel efficiency for the car.
The interior of the 2017 Lincoln Navigator is going to be as pleasant as ever. Adding a great inside setup is the part of the formal which the past Navigator vehicles have gone by and will also be seen on this one as well. Many things still need to the decided about the inside as we have the least amount of information available about that part of the car but as the release date gets closer more info will emerge. For now what is apparent is the high comfort levels which are going to be complemented with ample space on the inside. A lot of headroom and legroom is what you get which is going to be bolstered with fine materials and fine touch surfaces.
