2025 Lincoln Navigator Front End Revealed For First Time

Back in June, Ford Authority reported that the refreshed 2025 Lincoln Navigator would launch with styling cues borrowed from the redesigned 2024 Lincoln Nautilus. Shortly thereafter, Ford Authority spotted a prototype out testing wearing heavy camouflage, concealing any potential exterior styling updates for the full-size luxury SUV, at least for the most part. However, upon closer inspection, those elements became a bit clearer, revealing what appears to be a coast-to-coast light bar and an updated headlight design, along with a rear liftgate and taillights that are similar to the new Nautilus as well. Now, Ford Authority has spotted another 2025 Lincoln Navigator prototype out testing, but this time, with far less camo covering the front end, specifically.

These new photos confirm that the 2025 Lincoln Navigator will indeed share quite a bit in terms of front end styling with the redesigned Nautilus, a look that will also adorn the upcoming, refreshed 2025 Lincoln Aviator. Here, we get a much better look at the Navigator’s strip that runs across the entire front end with a Lincoln Star logo in the center, which could very well light up, though in this case, it’s completely taped up. We also get a good look at the front grille mesh design, though the headlights are still largely concealed.

The rest of this prototype is covered in heavy camo from front to back – save for a set of massive 24-inch wheels – which is notable for a couple of reasons. For one, the largest size wheel one can get with the current Navigator is 22 inches, and secondly, the refreshed 2025 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban will be offered with 24-inch wheels as well. Also interesting is the fact that this prototype has its power running boards deployed while it was moving, but that likely won’t be something the production version will emulate.

Moving to the rear, we get a look at the Navigator’s rear end styling updates as well, which will likely also take cues from the 2024 Nautilus, as well as the 2025 Aviator, though it’s difficult to tell given the presence of heavy camo.

As Ford Authority previously reported, the 2025 Lincoln Navigator will offer a coast-to-coast display inside the cabin, a feature that has become increasingly common in luxury vehicles in recent years – including some Lincoln models sold in other countries, like the Zephyr, as well as the new Nautilus. In terms of powertrains, the 2025 Navigator is also slated to receive a hybrid of some sort, which could be the existing twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 PowerBoost that originally launched in the 2021 Ford F-150.

    Not much to see and does it even matter what they so to the Navigator. It trails all GM full size competitors in sales buy a country mile.


    The new 25 Suburban blows the current Navi out of the water. It needs a refresh ASAP.

    Lincoln currently has a “front end” problem (i.e. all of their front ends basically look identical). Not much variety there, in my opinion. The new Navigator’s front end here, though, looks similar to the current Dodge Durango, at least with the camo on, anyway. In summary, here’s hoping that the Navigator’s front end is at least a departure from what they are currently offering.

      Bias much? How come BMW, Mercedes Benz, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Lexus, Jaguar, Alfa Romeo ect, ect, ect basically have the same grille design without a peep out of folks like yourself? Hmmmm…
