Lincoln Confirms Next-Gen Navigator

Lincoln Confirms Next-Gen Navigator

Despite recent rumors that Lincoln might be headed for the chopping block, not helped by GM CEO Dan Akerson’s outburst last week, Ford Motor Company has repeatedly said that it’s committed to the Lincoln brand. Not only that, but part of future product portfolios will included a Navigator SUV.

Scott Tobin, director of product development for Lincoln, said during a short video on the company’s Facebook page, that not only will the Navigator stick around long-term, it will likely remain as a large, heavy-duty vehicle designed for hauling and towing, which probably means it will retain body-on-frame construction and possibly larger displacement engines, though in Ford’s corporate-wide push to improve fuel efficiency, at least one EcoBoost engine will probably join the roster.
