If you are in a market for a large SUV with great towing capacity, you should wait for a 2016 Lincoln Navigator. It will appear better than ever.
Changes and design of exterior
After more than two decades, Navigator has been fully refreshed last year. This year, the brand new 2016 Lincoln Navigator will bring even more changes and upgrades. First of all, it will most likely ride on the new platform. It will be the same architecture that underpins the current – 2015 Ford F-150. This platform is made of high-strength steel, aluminum and other lightweight materials. It will also get new aluminum body. All this will affect its weight which will be now significantly improved. It should be lighter for around 700 pounds. This will improve fuel efficiency and performance. When it comes to exterior design, it will keep its recognizable boxy and powerful appearance. The front end will get a large split grille and rectangular head lamps. Unfortunately, we cannot reveal more, since there is no official information about it.
