Just a few hours after Lincoln teased the 2015 Navigator, a photo popped up on Twitter that shows off the front end of the new SUV. 

The 2015 Navigator will adopt Lincoln’s staple split-wing grille, although it is massaged to look more masculine on the Navigator.

Details are sparse, but we do know that Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine will be an option on the new Navigator. The SUV will also adopt Lincoln drive control which uses continuously controlled damping to offer a smooth ride. New electric power-assisted steering will also be included.

On the inside, Lincoln says that the Navigator will deliver best-in-class cargo volume along with other luxury features like push-button start, MyLincoln Touch infotainment and a leather wrapped steering wheel. A new ‘reserve package’ will also be available which includes 22-inch wheels and wooden interior accents.

The 2015 Navigator will be revealed Thursday, Jan.23. Check back to AutoGuide for more details.

    I forgot all about this SUV. What a surprise! Glad to here that a new one is coming. The current Navigator is off the radar.

    The front end looks very nice. Much better than other Lincoln products.

    This is the first time I have seen an implementation of Lincoln’s current design language that I like–although on the concept model, I sincerely hope the hood is slightly ajar, because it looks like there’s a panel gap between the hood and the grill split panel…

    I hope so. If not, they should close the gap on future models.

    Doesn’t look like the hood is latched closed. Gap is consistent between the hood and grille. The reflections make it look uneven.

    Having seen other shots where the gap is clearly not there, I agree completely–the hood just wasn’t fully closed here. Overall, I really like this look, and some other publications have pointed out how the split-ribbed grille hearkens back to some early Lincoln designs. Let’s hope this continues to evolve, and that the more fuel-efficient engines grow more competitive.

    I’d like to see Ford make Lincoln into a good choice again. The more options buyers have, the better.
