2015 Lincoln Navigator Reveals its New Front End
The 2015 Lincoln Navigator has been partially revealed ahead of its Washington D.C. auto show debut. Our friends at MSN Autos snapped this shot of the new Navigator's uncovered front end. We'll reserve judgment on the styling until we see the whole vehicle tomorrow, but until then, this is your best look yet at the redesigned three-row SUV.
The Navigator sports Lincoln's signature split grille, which looks blockier here compared to the more streamlined MKC. The headlights look to feature HID projector lamps, while the bumper gets strips of chrome that span the front valance.
As we previously reported, the next-gen Navigator is expected to ride on the same F-150-based platform, as opposed to the new 2015 F-150 chassis. New drivetrains are also expected, possibly including an EcoBoost engine for improved fuel economy. The model will likely continue to offer two different wheelbase lengths.
Based on what we can see in the photo, it's hard to tell if the styling is a hit or a miss. But given that the current model has been on sale since 2007, a change was definitely needed. What do you think of the Navigator's new look?
