The 2020 Lincoln Navigator is the company's largest and grandest model, with loads of chrome and seating for up to eight. While some of the parts it shares with the lesser Ford Expedition are obvious, Lincoln gives the Navigator enough exclusive content to feel truly luxurious. Its effortless acceleration and lofty towing capacity are delivered courtesy of a powerful 450-hp twin-turbo V-6 powertrain. Unfortunately, its uncouth ride on uneven roads diminishes the comfort level. Even so, the big Lincoln is packed with cutting-edge technology and is available with extremely comfortable seats. While the 2020 Navigator is neither fuel efficient nor totally refined, its flashy exterior and extravagant features rise above these shortcomings; it's still one of the best SUVs out there.
What's New for 2020?
Lincoln gives the Navigator lineup improved standard features and updated packages for this year. Every model now has standard adaptive dampers, power-operated running boards, heated and ventilated front seats, automatic high-beams, the latest Sync infotainment software, and the owner's smartphone now can be used as a key. All but the base models now have illuminated power running boards. The paint-color palette drops Ingot Silver, Ruby Red, and White Platinum in favor of Pristine White, Red Carpet, and Silver Radiance. Likewise, Lincoln's suite of driver assists—called Co-Pilot360—now includes automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist, forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, and a backup camera with a camera washer. There's also a new Monochromatic package available on the Navigator Reserve that brings unique exterior styling.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
We think the mid-level Navigator Reserve represents the best combination of luxury and value. The long-wheelbase L version has more cargo space and passenger versatility for an extra premium if you need the room; regardless of which model, we'd also choose the all-weather capability of all-wheel drive. Every Reserve has desirable features such as heated and ventilated front seats, a head-up display, power-adjustable steering wheel, and a host of driver-assistance technologies. The only other options we'd recommend are the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow package that maximizes the Navigator's towing ability. The Luxury package also orders up Lincoln's excellent 30-way power seats and a fancy 20-speaker Revel Ultima audio system.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The 2020 Navigator has only one engine-and-transmission combination, but with 450 horsepower, one is all it needs. We found the Navigator to be responsive and genuinely speedy, and the 10-speed automatic shuffles through gears adeptly enough to avoid perturbing dozing passengers. At our test track, the standard-wheelbase Navigator and long-wheelbase model had equally quick acceleration. However, straight-line performance is where the Navi's performance potential begins and ends. Steering feel is numb and its sheer bulk prevents it from being a vehicle that encourages enthusiastic driving. But the most serious problem with our test vehicles was their ride quality. Wearing optional 22-inch wheels, the Navigator was sometimes jittery, and sharp impacts were followed up by bouncing rebounds—the worst of both worlds.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
Unlike its V-8 competition, the Navigator employs a downsized, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 and a 10-speed automatic transmission in the quest for better fuel economy. Despite its smaller engine, it's far from fuel efficient and proved unexpectedly thirsty during our real-world highway testing. Despite a highway-fuel-economy rating from the EPA of 21 mpg, our test vehicle delivered 18 mpg over the course of 200 miles.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
The Navigator's interior is lavishly spacious and genuinely luxurious. Materials such as open-pore wood trim and massaging front seats are only available in the upper trim levels, but even entry-level Navigators have much to offer. The Navigator's third row is one of the best examples of that seating arrangement. There are 1.1 inches more legroom in the Navigator's third row than that of the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and other competitors fall even further behind. The Navigator offers optional 30-way-adjustable massaging front seats, a keystone feature for Lincoln's flagship SUV. The seats are almost sculptural and are so customizable that you can even adjust the individual left and right thigh supports to different heights. The Navigator's immense size can be a drawback when weaving through traffic or attempting to park, but it's a huge boon when it comes time to pack for vacation. Short-wheelbase models have limited cargo space with all three rows in use; cargo space is abundant with the third row folded. Long-wheelbase L models have cargo room aplenty even with the third row in use.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The Navigator comes standard with an eye-catching 10.0-inch touchscreen and has USB ports in every row. The infotainment system's graphics are slick and easy to read—important for Lincoln's presbyopic clientele—and the huge screen is like a glittering jewel atop the Navigator's prow. Every model comes with a five-year subscription to Lincoln's smartphone app and related services, and the standard navigation system includes a six-year subscription to SiriusXM's Traffic and Travel Link.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The Navigator hasn't been crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), but the 2019 model received five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Lincoln also makes its Co-Pilot360 suite of driver-assistance technology standard. Key safety features include:
- Standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
- Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
- Available adaptive cruise control
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
Lincoln's warranty coverage roughly matches that of its competitors, but there are a few perks that help the company's customer-service practices stand out from the herd. Owners who choose the Black Label trim enjoy four years of complimentary scheduled maintenance instead of one year.
- Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
- Powertrain warranty covers six years or 70,000 miles
- Complimentary scheduled maintenance is covered for up to four years or 50,000 miles

Lincoln Navigator Expert Review
The Ford-Expedition-based 2020 Lincoln Navigator is the largest SUV in Lincoln's lineup, slotting above the midsize Aviator. Where the Navigator differs from its Ford sibling is with its appointments; the Lincoln features a more luxurious interior and even has chimes from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Its engine also has more power than the Expedition's. A long-wheelbase variant called the Navigator L is also offered.
- Heated and ventilated front seats, wireless phone charging and Phone as Key capability are now standard.
- Lincoln CoPilot360 is now standard on all trims.
- The Monochromatic package, which is available in Pristine White, Ceramic Pearl and Infinite Black exterior colors is now available. Based on the Navigator Reserve, the Monochromatic package adds 22-inch black alloy wheels, a body-colored mesh grille and side mirror covers.
We love the Lincoln Navigator because of an opulent and distinctive interior. In a 2018 First Test, we noted that everything you interact with feels expensive and it offers excellent space for passengers even those in the third row. Despite its size, the Navigator accelerates effortlessly thanks to its twin-turbo V-6 and responsive transmission. A comfortable ride complements the snazzy interior thanks to the available adaptive suspension. However, with the 22-inch alloy wheels, you feel more impacts and road imperfections, detracting from the SUV's isolated feel. Over broken pavement, the Navigator got floaty and displayed unnecessary body motions during the finalist loop of MotorTrend's 2019 SUV of the Year evaluations.
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator is powered solely by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 450- hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic is the only transmission available. EPA fuel economy ratings for the 2020 Lincoln Navigator are 16/22 mpg city/highway for the rear-drive variant or 16/21 mpg with four-wheel drive and rear-drive long wheelbase variants.
In NHTSA testing, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator received a five-star overall score (out of five stars).
All 2020 Navigators come standard with the Lincoln CoPilot360 driver assistance suite, which bundles together automatic high beams, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with trailer coverage and rear cross-traffic alert. Adaptive cruise control comes standard only on the Reserve and Black Label models.
With all seats in place, the standard wheelbase 2020 Lincoln Navigator has 19.3 cubic feet of cargo space. That increases to 63.6 cubic feet with the third row folded and the second row moved all the way forward (57.5 cubic feet with the second row in its standard position). With the second- and third rows folded, total capacity grows to 103.3 cubic feet.
The Navigator L offers more cargo space with all seats up at 34.3 cubic feet. Fold the third row and capacity grows to 73.3 cubic feet or 79.6 cubic feet with the second row moved all the way forward. Total cargo capacity with the second- and third rows folded is 120.2 cubic feet.
Maximum towing capacity when properly equipped is 8,700 pounds for the rear-drive, standard wheelbase 2020 Navigator or 8,300 pounds with four-wheel drive. The long-wheelbase Navigator L tows less at 8,400 pounds in rear-drive guise or 8,100 pounds with four-wheel drive.
Both 2020 Lincoln Navigator variants offer generous passenger accommodations. First- and second-row passengers get 43.9- and 41.1 inches of legroom while the third row has 36.1 inches.
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator comes standard with the Sync 3 infotainment system featuring a 10.0-inch touchscreen and navigation. A 14-speaker Revel audio system comes standard on the Standard and Reserve models. The range-topping Navigator Black Label gets a 20-speaker Revel Ultima surround sound system as standard.
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator is available in three trims:
2020 Lincoln Navigator Standard: The base Navigator comes well-equipped with features like LED headlights, a rearview camera, three-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, keyless entry/start, a 12.0-inch digital gauge cluster, remote start, a hands-free power liftgate, a heated steering wheel, interior ambient lighting, heated and ventilated 10-way power-operated front seats, leather upholstery, 20-inch alloy wheels, and second-row captain's chairs.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Reserve: Moving up to the Reserve adds 22-inch alloy wheels, power running boards, a panoramic sunroof, 24-way power adjustable front seats, adaptive suspension, and a surround view camera system.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label: The range-topping Black Label adds the 30-way Perfect Position seats with massage function, heated second-row seats and special interior two-tone color combinations finished in Venetian leather upholstery. Black Label models also come standard with all-wheel drive.
Options include a head-up display, an illuminated Lincoln logo, a rear seat entertainment system, and a second row bench seat.
The Navigator currently ranks among the best full-size luxury SUVs on the market. It returns for 2020 essentially unchanged. You will love the twin-turbocharged V6 engine with 450 horsepower and a towing capacity of 8,300 pounds, the stylish 22-inch wheels, the panoramic sunroof and the huge amount of space for passengers and cargo (especially in the long-wheelbase Navigator L). Don’t forget the arsenal of advanced driving aids and the feature-rich and user-friendly infotainment system.
