Sanctuary has always been the leading theme with the current generation Lincoln Navigator and that continues this year with the significantly refreshed 2022 model. Expanding its focus on sanctuary and first-class travel, the new Navigator is as luxurious and serene as it gets with all the benchmark-setting features of the previous year while taking it to the next level with some pretty major interior and technology updates. Visually, the front end has been refined further with a revised grille that has even more presence and a set of adaptive pixel projector headlamps bring a more modern touch.
Power and performance remain unchanged with its 3.5L twin-turbo V6 that produces 440 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. And complementing that power is a new Adaptive Suspension system with Road Preview that uses a system of twelve sensors and a forward-facing camera that monitors the car in real time to help soften any rough elements on the road for the most luxurious ride feel possible.
If you ask us, the biggest (and our favorite) update is ActiveGlide, Lincoln's version of Ford's BlueCruise technology. The hands-free driver-assist technology adds a game-changing layer of convenience on long road trips, allowing for a Level 2 autonomous experience inside one of the most comfortable cars out there. The feature is compatible with what the brand calls "Hands-Free Blue Zones," which includes over 130,000 miles of highways across North America.
Combined with Sync 4, drivers and passengers have quick and seamless access to all their favorite content and services. CarPlay and Android Auto are ready to connect to virtually any smartphone for a fully connected experience with your preferred device. Alexa is also supported and a new Lincoln Play with Fire TV option is available so passengers in the rear seat can easily watch TV and movies from any of the major streaming services. Further enhancing the Sync 4 experience is an all-new 12.3" center stack display with their updated Constellation UX experience and a new 5.8" in the rear makes it easier to adjust climate control and audio settings.
Always refining their Black Label experience, Lincoln adds a couple of new interior themes with the highlight being Central Park. Inspired by one of the most famous parks in the world, the theme paints the car in a new exterior color called Manhattan Green Metallic and wraps the entire interior in a dark green leather that's paired with open-pore dark walnut with laser-etched graphics.
Add to that the upgraded massage seats, which are also available in the second row, the new Navigator is a spa and wellness center on four wheels. It's no surprise that it continues to be a favorite amongst clients who want the ultimate in practicality and luxury whether that be from the chauffeur-driven perspective or for those who just want a getaway from the chaos of the daily commute. As the company celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, the new Navigator smoothly transitions the brand into its next hundred years, flying the flag for uncompromised American luxury.
