2023 Lincoln Navigator Adds New Diamond Red Tri-Coat Color

The 2023 Lincoln Navigator gains one new exterior color in its lineup, known as Diamond Red Tri-Coat. Here’s a first look at the new color.

Diamond Red Tri-Coat is tagged with paint code C9, and it adds $750 to the overall cost of the 2023 Lincoln Navigator. It is available for the Navigator and extended-length Navigator L in conjunction with Standard and Reserve trims. However, it is not offered on Navigator Black Label models. As a reminder, the following list comprises all available 2023 Navigator exterior paint options:

  • Ocean Drive Blue Metallic Tinted Clearcoat
  • Pristine White Metallic Tri-Coat
  • Ceramic Pearl Metallic Tri-Coat
  • Starlight Gray Premium Colorant
  • Silver Radiance Metallic Clearcoat
  • Infinite Black Metallic Clearcoat
  • Diamond Red Tri-Coat (new for 2023)

The following are all available trim levels:

  • Standard
  • Reserve
  • Reserve L
  • Black Label
  • Black Label L

Finally, the following are all available interior colorways for the 2023 Navigator:

  • Sandstone
  • Black Onyx
  • Black Onyx/Roast

The 2023 Lincoln Navigator soldiers on largely unchanged from its prior model year. This includes the continuation of many features that were introduced for the 2022 model year, including a refreshed front end design, a larger 13.2-inch infotainment screen with Sync 4 capabilities, upgraded massage functions in the seats, and more. Since the 2022 model year, the Navigator has featured the automaker’s semi-autonomous driver assist feature, Lincoln ActiveGlide, which facilitates hands-free driving on compatible North American roads.

The 2023 Lincoln Navigator is powered by Ford’s twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that is rated to produce 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, which is paired with the automaker’s 10-speed automatic transmission. The full-size luxury SUV has proved to be a serious contender in its competitive sales bracket, as it recently reclaimed second place in Q3 2022 after being briefly unseated by the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Thus far, only the Cadillac Escalade continually outsells the Navigator.

    I don’t think your exterior colors for 2024 Lincoln Nautilus are very good choice. I think you need some brighter colors. You could definitely use some colors from the Lincoln Corsair . I hope you will take a second look and add some brighter colors, so I can buy a 2024 Nautilus
