Well known American car manufacturer is preparing something new for the 2017. It is a 2017 Lincoln Navigator which will undergo many changes.
Improvements and design of exterior
2017 Lincoln Navigator is a full-size luxury SUV which will show many modifications and improvements. First of all, it will be much lighter than the current model. If the rumors are true, new Lincoln will ride on the new platform used in 2015 Ford F-150. This architecture is made of lightweight materials such as aluminum, high strength steel and carbon fiber. Therefore, new Navigator could lose even 700 pounds. This will improve its aerodynamic, fuel efficiency and performance. It will be great to handle and it will provide great driving experience. When it comes to exterior design, it will keep its recognizable, boxy appearance. Changes will be visible both on the front and rear fascias. We will notice revised grille, headlamps, rear lights etc. The lights will be equipped with quality LED lighting which will provide great visibility. Its main competitors will be Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, Land Rover Range Rover and BMW X7.
Design of interior
Inside, 2017 Lincoln Navigator should be also improved with some new tech features and materials. The cabin will be quite spacious and comfortable as always. There will be a plenty of head and leg room. The seats will be most likely covered with high quality leather. Speaking of the equipment, it is still not known what will be the new features. Some of the standard features will be a rearview camera, blind-spot monitors, audio system, Bluetooth, navigation and so on.
