Lincoln Navigator Production Increased In February 2024

Like many other automobiles made by the Detroit Big Three, Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator production at the Kentucky Truck plant faced a bit of adversity last fall due to the United Auto Workers (UAW) strike. However, Expedition production bounced right back in November, reaching 6,730 units – an increase of 3,592 units or 114 percent versus October, after which things shifted downward in December before rising in January and February. As for the Lincoln Navigator, it also enjoyed a small boost in production last month, according to FoMoCo’s latest sales report.

In January, The Blue Oval built a total of 1,587 Lincoln Navigator SUVs, but that number jumped to 1,635 units in February – a modest increase of 48 units, or around three percent. Regardless, any sort of increase in production output is notable given the fact that Lincoln currently has more inventory than any automotive brand outside of the walls of Stellantis, as Ford Authority recently reported – prompting it to ramp up incentives by a large margin in an effort to move leftover 2023 models.

Meanwhile, both the Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator are set to receive a mid-cycle refresh for the 2025 model year. As Ford Authority previously reported, hybrid versions of the Expedition and Navigator are seemingly likely to debut alongside the forthcoming 2025 model year updates planned for both models, which include revised, Range Rover-like exterior styling and new taillights for the Expedition, along with Nautilus-like cues for the Navigator, plus revised interior designs and even a coast-to-coast display screen for the big Lincoln SUV.

The 2025 Ford Expedition will also receive a pretty extensive interior makeover, one that will include the introduction of a coast-to-coast or pillar-to-pillar screen, along with an additional screen in the center stack that’s located between the HVAC vents, much like the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus, among various other tweaks – details confirmed by some recently acquired photos of a refreshed Expedition prototype.
