Ford really needs to hit the mark with this. It's not okay for the Navigator to be just an airport shuttle anymore. I hope they bump the power up to at least 400 on the eco-boost and lighten the truck so its something that can compete with the Denali, Escalade, and Infiniti QX80 (formerly QX56). Competing with the MB GL is a bit far fetched, I don't think it would be smart to aim the Navigator at competing with the GL since the markets are so different. The whole Lincoln line needs to step up their game to compete with Cadillac. I hope they do it.
Spied! 2015 Lincoln Navigator and Navigator L Show There's Still Life in the Old SUV
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee carries on the tradition of the 1982 original. No, seriously.
I have a 2007 Navigator with 125K miles. It has been the best SUV I have ever owned. (3-suburbans, 1 Expedition and 1 other Navigator) If you go to the dealer and sit in a new Navigator, you can't tell the difference from the 2007. I really hope Lincoln puts some serious R&D into the new model. Otherwise I see no reason to upgrade.
Navigator will also get a split-nose grille that was first shown in its current form on the 2013 Lincoln MKZ sedanNOOOO!!!!
Not different enough to justify keeping this vehicle in the lineup. The Navigator is already treading around on it's last legs and a refreshed front end and wheel's isn't going to cut it. I hope the interior gets a complete refresh with higher quality materials and they tweak little things like 86'ing some of that tacky chrome and bringing back the old taillamp design. Also find a way to either hide the rear windshield wiper or cover it with some plastic and add an arm for it to rest on like the first gen did.
