Our Opinion - 2022 Lincoln Navigator Review

A finalist for SUV of the Year in 2019 and a top pick in our full-size luxury rankings, Lincoln’s Navigator could be the best vehicle the company has to offer right now. The interior and exterior design is distinctly American, with trying to impose style and high-quality materials, making the vehicle appear luxurious.

The Perfect Position seats, which can be adjusted in 30 ways, are the most comfortable we’ve ever experienced in a Mercedes-Benz. Our comprehensive luxury comparison test featured several German competitors, and none could match the Navigator’s performance.

Additionally, the Lincoln MKX provides a driving experience that is worthy of a high-end car. The ‘Gator’s standard twin-turbo V-6 provides effortless acceleration and surprising accuracy in the handling department. Ride quality isn’t as magical-carpet-plush as some of its rivals; it’s especially bad on the 22-inch wheels. Hopefully, the new 2022 model will be more comfortable to drive.

Say hi to the Everglades’ largest gator. Lincoln’s flagship, the Navigator, is a three-row, full-size luxury SUV. This fourth-generation Lincoln Navigator, which goes up against the Mercedes-Benz Escalade, Mercedes-Benz Granger causality, and BMW X7 in competition, was introduced for the 2018 model year.

Updated styling, new interior features, and an innovative palms highway driving aid all debut in the Lincoln Explorer and Navigator L for 2022.

Only one powertrain is available for Lincoln’s biggest and most expensive SUV. This is the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 with 440 horsepower and 510 pounds-feet of torque, of course. This engine is paired with a successfully complete automatic gearbox and a choice between RWD and AWD. The EPA gave the Navigator a city/highway fuel economy rating of 16/22 mpg for 2021.

When it comes to safety features, the Navigator doesn’t hold back. Crossing Assist, which is able to detect oncoming cars while attempting a left turn, will be included as a standard safety feature beginning in 2022. It will alert the driver & apply the brakes if it detects an impending collision. 

Active Park Support 2.0, which can assist drivers in edging out of a spot when another vehicle has parked too close, is now also standard. Also included are walkability detection, forward lane departure warning and automatic headlights as standard features.

ActiveGlide is a quasi system that allows car owners to function the Navigation system hands-free on certain segments of the highway from Lincoln. Speed sign recognition, lane centering, and adaptive cruise control are included. To further ensure that the driver is focused on the road, an eye and head tracking camera is integrated into the instrument cluster.

The Navigator is a massive vehicle with a massive interior, but it has advantages and disadvantages when compared to the Cadillac Escalade, its most direct competitor. With regard to third-row legroom, the Lincoln is anticipated to offer a significant advantage over Cadillac.
