For traditional SUV feel, the new 2017 Lincoln Navigator is undoubtedly a solid choice courtesy of a plush ride quality, affordable starting price, spacious third-row seating, and easy drivability relative to its rivals. Additionally, the powertrain is capable, the touchscreen interface updated, and the interior refined. The Lincoln Navigator release date should be expected sometime before the fall of 2017.
Younger Model For Modern Obstacles
Granted, the crossover market is nowadays awash with a sheer variety of utility vehicles each boasting of unique strengths and features. The Navigator offers plenty of versatility on various fronts – offering adequate space for a large family, superior towing capabilities, laudable off-roading, and the over-flowing American flare.
Although the previous Lincoln Navigator refresh wasn’t no mean feat, there was need by Lincoln to rejuvenate the Navigator in terms of performance and aesthetic makeover. This, Lincoln hopes, will bring it to speed with the rest of the industry best.
Better Infotainment System?
The Lincoln Navigator 2017 interior offers a variety of new technologies and features. The infotainment system is now more responsive and crisp, and features the new BlackBerry powered Sync 3 touchscreen interface. Its working is synonymous to a smartphone and even people who are often beleaguered by smartphone phones will find it easier to operate it.
Stronger In Towing But Weak In Turning
The 2017 Lincoln Navigator towing capacity is yet another notable aspect that warrants a closer inspection. Lincoln says the newest model can tow a maximum of about 9,000 pounds. On the flipside, though, is perhaps its lack of easier maneuverability in tight spaces. The fact that it has a large footprint isn’t in doubt, and we highly encourage any would-be buyers to carefully consider their options first before committing.
What About The Competition?
There is no shortage of rivals here despite the promising 2017 Lincoln Navigator specs. They include the Cadillac Escalade and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. The 2017 Cadillac Escalade redesign offers a bold styling and a strong V8 power. Rumors allege its price will most likely remain unaltered at around $72,970.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Diesel price starts from an MSRP of around $63,600 and for that amount you get strong brakes, a spacious accommodation for up to seven adults, available fuel-efficient diesel V6, a classy and hush interior, and an authoritative power. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class release date should be expected sometime in the latter half of 2017.
