Lincoln is playing in the big boys’ league as the 2015 Navigator has been officially unveiled. The model in question will become a direct rival to the new Cadillac Escalade and it has received a split wing grille, LED infused HID headlights, a bulging hood, new taillights, some chrome trim and 20-inch aluminum wheels, amongst others. As far as the cabin goes, this is getting a wood steering wheel, leather upholstery, MyLincoln Touch infotainment system, push-button ignition, PowerFold third-row seats and higher quality materials.

The North American based automaker Lincoln is also offering, if the items mentioned above are not enough for you, a Reserve Package, which is adding the leather wrapped dashboard, the ultra-luxurious leather seats, the Ziricote wood trim and 22-inch polished aluminum wheels. The new SUV can also be equipped with the Lincoln Drive Control, with Continuously Controlled Damping, which will ensure a smooth ride.

As far as the engine goes, the 2015 Lincoln Navigator will come with a 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6, which has replaced the old 5.4 liter V8. The total output produced stands at 370 HP (276 kW) and 582 Nm (430 lb-ft) of torque. Power is being sent to the optional Control Trac Four-Wheel Drive system through a six-speed automatic transmission. Additional details on the 2015 Lincoln Navigator, including its price list, will be announced close to its launch, scheduled for this fall.
