Lincoln is at a bit of a crossroads, with the luxury brand on the verge of going through some major updates as it moves into a new era of electrification and a heavily revamped styling language. Ford CEO Jim Farley has provided a few hints as to what future Lincoln models may look like, stating his desire to see these vehicles offer customers the latest technology and massive interior screens, for starters. We’ve already seen this start to come to fruition with a handful of new products from FoMoCo’s luxury arm, and the forthcoming 2025 Lincoln Navigator looks set to continue that trend with a new coast-to-coast display, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority.
The 2025 Lincoln Navigator will indeed feature a coast-to-coast display inside the cabin, one that’s similar to the screen present in the redesigned 2024 Lincoln Nautilus. However, the screen in the 2025 Lincoln Navigator will be a bit wider at both ends, for more of a wraparound aesthetic. This particular feature will help the Navigator better compete with its chief rival – the Cadillac Escalade – which is also getting a coast-to-coast screen as part of its forthcoming refresh for the 2024 model year, as Ford Authority reported earlier this week.
In the recent past, many Ford and Lincoln models in China have incorporated coast-to-coast screens, which is one of the hottest trends in the new vehicle market these days. That includes the Zephyr sedan, which features a 12.3-inch digital cluster and a massive 27-inch coast-to-coast fully customizable touchscreen that can be split into multiple displays or kept as a fullscreen.
Outside of this new screen, the 2025 Lincoln Navigator will feature exterior styling elements that also mimic the new Nautilus, as Ford Authority reported yesterday. Those include a coast-to-coast light bar or similar element up front, updated headlight and taillight designs, a revised tailgate, and new wheel options, at a minimum.
