Other welcomed changes for the new 2022 Lincoln Navigator include the new Sync 4 infotainment system now fed through a bigger 13.2-inch touchscreen that well streams into the lower control panel and center environment vents. The brand-new screen, 3.2-inches bigger than the older Sync 3 setup, tends and features lots of improvements to be simply as user-friendly as Sync 3 however makes better use of the screen real estate with multiple info sets displayed at one time.
Engine and Drivetrain
Continuing to power the Lincoln Navigator is the brands 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine great for 440 horse power and 510 lb-ft of torque and still mated to a 10-speed automated transmission. If youre taking notice to the brand-new horsepower figure, youll wonder why the brand-new Navigator has lost 10 horsepower over the outbound design years. Well, that change, which isnt even discovered, is because of an increased compression ratio of the engine resulting in included performance, 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 however the city mileage remains at 16 mpg in addition to the integrated at 18 mpg.
My only fault with the drivetrain is the drive mode selector, which provides you access to several drive modes (Conserve, Normal, Normal Automatic 4 × 4, Excite, Deep Conditions, and Slippery), which return to a default Normal drive mode upon rebooting the automobile rather of leaving it in a mode like Normal 4 × 4, which will use the equipped all-wheel-drive system in an automated mode. My believed here would enable all-wheel-drive when it is essential upon rear-wheel slippage without an act to enable the mode each time you get in the vehicle– if you pick the choice once it would keep that feature with each vehicle start.
To keep with the style of raising the brand-new Lincoln Navigator for its high-end personality, the 2nd row of seats not just feature heating and ventilation, however they now tout rubbing as a schedule, which comes as a $625 alternative on my crammed Navigator Black Label trim test automobile. The brand-new Cadillac Escalade does not have the availability of both second-row seat ventilation and massage. The second row likewise benefits from an optional pair of 10.1-inch entertainment touchscreens with the combination of several streaming service apps comparable to numerous new wise TVs. You still get the standard 30-way best position front seats with the Active Motion Massage features, heating, and ventilation and the third row has an unexpected quantity of space for three adults and access to a couple of USB charging ports next to the storage cubbies and cup holders.
The new Navigator has actually impressed me a lot that I d think about a purchase just if it would suit the garage bay where our brand-new Lincoln Aviator resides with only a couple of inches of room to spare– something to be conscious of with the brand-new Navigator and even more so with the long-wheelbase version, which costs an extra $3,045.
Before the Electric Vehicle movement gets ahold of big SUVs, manufacturers are working vigilantly to keep what they have appropriate and fresh, which is just what Lincoln is making with the newest Navigator through smart updates and revitalizing for the 2022 design year.
The updates for the brand-new 2022 Lincoln Navigator go the distance to potentially position it back in the king of the hill position after Cadillac revamps their Escalade.

The new 2022 Lincoln Navigator tows as much as 8,700 pounds in the 4 × 2 normal-wheelbase configuration and up 8,300 pounds for the 4 × 4 normal-wheelbase. Going with the long wheelbase will yield somewhat lower tow maximus at 8,400 pounds for the 4 × 2 and 8,100 for the 4 × 4 Navigator L.
The guiding wheel rack has a good artificial-feeling weight to it but requires several turns from lock to lock, once again, reminding you that youre driving one of the biggest production guest automobiles on the road. Theres a welcomed sense of easy driving where the Navigator doesnt challenge the driver to be stressed when navigating or parking, partially thanks to the high-resolution 360-degree cam system and a wide variety of active safety features helping to monitor the roadway.
Move your head for too long or end up being sidetracked and the ActiveGlide system and the system will alert you to gain back attention or control of the vehicle. The system appears to work effortlessly but my dissatisfaction is that it didnt work on numerous regional highways in my area, just significant Interstate roadways.
Interior and New Updates
The sufficient power from the twin-turbo V6 scoots the big Navigator together with authority and strikes 60 mph in simply 6 seconds, rather the quick large SUV. When theres a requirement to leap out in traffic, theres never a need for more power and there isnt much turbo lag to distress the driver.
Lincoln has certainly raised the presence and standing of the brand-new 2022 Navigator. Doing such has kept it well within the leading running for the coveted large SUV section to highly punch versus new automobiles like the revamped Cadillac Escalade. Continuing the availability of the top-trim Navigator Black Label with its distinct “theme” choices giving you a set palette of colors and fine interior trims and an exclusive Black Label Special Edition Package as found on my $115,275 totally loaded test vehicle.
