Hybrid and all-electric vehicles are the future. The best proof is that almost all of the established automakers are focusing on the hybrids. Lincoln is no different. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid is about to arrive and it will be the best Navigator so far. You can find so many similarities between the Navigator and Ford Expedition.
However, Navigator looks more attractive and is more premium SUV. The exterior comes with additional aluminum work and design is perfect. Even the interior is very luxurious and upscale. The 2020 Navigator will get numerous upgrades. However, the only significant upgrade will be a hybrid drivetrain.
The exterior of the upcoming 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid won’t depart from the regular gasoline model. The current model got significant upgrades, so the new Navigator will introduce minor changes. For the start, the front grille is larger now and it looks really big. LED headlights are available as standard. Moreover, even Lincoln’s emblem is supported by LED lights.
The taillights are unchanged, just like the large lettering in the back. The side profile now comes with blacked-out windows and 22-inch wheels. The wheels are looking premium and extremely modern. You can see numerous similarities between the Navigator and Ford Expedition models. However, you can also realize how better and more attractive Navigator SUV looks.
When it comes to interior design and level of comfort, Navigator is one of the best in the segment. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid offers nothing but luxury. The cabin is equipped with upscale materials and soft-touch surfaces. The dash comes with perfect design and a new 10-inch touchscreen. The touchscreen comes with user-friendly menus and with a better interface.
Also, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard. Level of comfort is truly great and the interior room is generous. Center console sports beautiful air vents and it looks very elegant. Leather upholstery provides astonishing comfort and the rear passengers will get a new entertainment system. The third row can fit the adults with no problem, which is another good thing about this SUV.
Hybrid Drivetrain, MPG, Tow Rating
The regular Navigator model offers the same 3.5-liter twin-turbo engine. This unit generates up to 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately, it is the only powertrain choice. It isn’t a bad thing, this engine is quiet, smooth and more importantly, powerful. However, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid will surely satisfy the customers. Hybrid drivetrain will deliver astonishing mileage for the start.
The gasoline engine is rated at 21 mpg on the highway, and hybrid drivetrain will offer over 30 mpg. Electric motor and battery pack in a combination with the powerful V6 will provide more power as well. But the number of horses and level of torque won’t increase significantly. That means we can expect a slightly more powerful model with better fuel economy. Current Navigator can tow almost 9,000 pounds.

Premium SUVs aren’t cheap. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid will start at around $80,000. The base model is priced at $73,500 and Black Label trim at almost $100,000.
