2024 Lincoln Navigator Review: Prices, Specs, and Photos

What kind of vehicle is the 2024 Lincoln Navigator? What does it compare to?

Lincoln’s 2024 Navigator is a luxury SUV on a traditional full-size platform. There aren’t many traditional SUVs left, but the Navigator stands out for its polish and elegance amongst rivals like the Cadillac Escalade, BMW X7, Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

Is the 2024 Lincoln Navigator a good SUV?

Yes, the 2024 Lincoln Navigator is a good SUV overall, held back mainly by its dismal fuel economy. It earns a TCC Rating of 7.2 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

What’s new for the 2024 Lincoln Navigator?

The big news is that standard rear-wheel drive is dropped for 2024, so all Navigators are now four-wheel drive. The base model is now called Premiere and is now available with Lincoln’s BlueCruise limited hands-free highway driving system. Finally, Flight Blue Metallic returns after a hiatus and replaces Ocean Blue on the exterior color palette.

The Navigator features adaptive LED headlights framing a bold yet elegant grille, mirrored in the rear with sequential LED taillights.

A 13.2-inch touchscreen comes standard and can be upgraded with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The cabin also gets leather upholstery, 10-way power front seats, power-folding rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and wireless device charging. Seats are heated and cooled in the first and second rows, and can come with 30-way power adjustments up front and massage in the first and second rows. An extended wheelbase Navigator L adds 12 inches in length, increasing the cargo hold for about $3,000 more on all but the base Premiere.

Second-row passengers get a 5.8-inch touchscreen for climate controls, and rear passengers can be placated with optional 10.1-inch touchscreens with wireless headphones and Amazon Fire TV access. The Navigator is also available with a 28-speaker Revel stereo with eight overhead speakers.

This year, every Navigator model can be equipped with the BlueCruise hands-free driver-assist system, which better positions the Navigator against the Cadillac Escalade and its Super Cruise system. BlueCruise is a Level 2 semi-autonomous system compatible with 130,000 miles of North American highways (and counting). It maintains following distance and lane positioning, requiring only periodic driver intervention. BlueCruise operates on a subscription model after a trial period and requires native navigation.

The Navigator’s sole powertrain combines a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and newly standard four-wheel drive. It’s good for 440 hp, 510 lb-ft of torque, and a maximum towing capacity of up to 8,700 pounds.

Lincoln furnishes an adaptive suspension system equipped with a sensor network to adapt to road conditions on the fly, as well as plenty of standard safety tech, including adaptive cruise control, active lane control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitors, and park assist.

How much does the 2024 Lincoln Navigator cost?
