Lincoln Adds New Standard Tech To 2020 Navigator

Lincoln is talking up the 2020 Navigator and the new standard technology that it has added to the high-end SUV. Lincoln says that for 2020 the Navigator brings more features and technology to luxury buyers, including the Lincoln-exclusive Phone As A Key technology. This tech is turning up first on the Lincoln Aviator and will be standard on the 2020 Navigator.

Phone As A Key uses the Lincoln Way app to allow 2020 Navigator owners to unlock and lock their vehicle via their smartphone. The tech also allows the opening of the liftgate and owners can start and drive the vehicle all without needing to use a normal key. Another handy aspect of this tech is that owners can save and recall individual preferences like seat position, mirror adjustments, and steering column positioning.

Those fearing a dead smartphone will feel better knowing that the external keypad will get them into the vehicle, and a typed code on the central screen will start the 2020 Navigator. Lincoln has also rolled several other key technologies into the 2020 Navigator with Lincoln Co-Pilot 360 driver-assist technologies. These include:

  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps
  • Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert and trailer coverage
  • Lane-Keeping System with Driver Alert, Lane-Keeping Alert, Lane-Keeping Assist
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Dynamic Brake Support
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Pedestrian Detection
  • Rear view camera with washer

Lincoln has also made power running boards, heated and ventilated front-row seats, and wireless charging pads standard for the 2020 Navigator. It remains to be seen how much prices increase for the 2020 Navigator compared to 2019; the 2019 Navigator starts at $73,205 for the base and goes up to $96,395 for the Black Label.

    Hi. Pretty sure the wireless charging pad is an option in the Convenience Package. It might be standard on the Black Label, but not on the Reserve Models – based on the Lincoln ordering guide furnished by Lincoln.

      whoops. realize you shifted to standard options for the NAVIGATOR at the end of the article — my error.

    We own a 2004 Lincoln Navigator Ultimate. It is our favorite over our 2019 Toyota. Sadly, a new Navigator is over our budget at the moment. Not that we would ever get rid of the 2004!! These Navi’s are amazing!! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!
