Ford is increasing investments in electrifications sector. By 2022 all models should get a hybrid, PHEV, or all-electric version. For this purpose, the company will spend over $11 billion by next year. Development has already started, and we are very curious to see its largest rigs with such a source of power. Yes, there are F-150 truck and full-size SUV Expedition. Fans are also keen to get more about its premium version 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid. A combination of luxury equipment and fuel-saving drivetrain are opposite. But, a greener ride is definitely going to attract some buyers willing to spend over $100k for this model.
There are a lot of unknown details about the development of this system. All abovementioned vehicles will share the drivetrain when it enters the market, that is for sure. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid is a luxurious version of the Ford Expedition, and both SUVs are using the same architecture and the frame as F-150 truck. Still, we don’t know how this company plans to create a unit strong enough to meet the expectations of buyers.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid Specs
The standard Navigator SUV is going to continue to use a 3.5-liter V6 engine. Thanks to turbochargers, it can deliver 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. Lincoln officially confirmed the next Aviator is getting a plug-in hybrid system that will be capable to burst more than 450 horsepower. Since this one is smaller than the Navigator, we can only expect a higher output. Can 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid achieve 500 ponies? We would place our bet on yes. Also, the engine can create an insane amount of torque – 600 pound-feet. Currently, the Aviator concept could be the strongest one we see with Lincoln badge on it. Well, until the 2020 Navigator Hybrid appears.
Besides the power boost, the new SUV can count on better gas mileage and a drive by using only electric power. In this case, you can expect a range of around 30 miles. Fuel economy will jump to at least 80 mpg, or 24 mpg combined. We still don’t know if the new 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid is going to offer both 4×4 and 4×2 systems. But, a 10-speed automatic transmission is a certain choice.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid Features
The premium SUV will be loaded with a lot of features and systems. The equipment list is pretty long, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto right from the start. Still, there is space for upgrades, with navigation still being an optional feature. Heating of front seats and steering wheel, and leather wrapping them increase comfort and overall impression. Having a full-size SUV means a lot of space, both for passengers and cargo, so there are no reasons to worry about these things. Upper trim levels, such as Black Label or Reserve, will come with captain’s chairs in the second row.
There are three standard trim levels available for the Navigator. We are sure that two higher trims will be there for the Hybrid model as well. The entry-level SUV for the petrol engine is Standard. Select and Reserve, with their respectable upgrades, are on the way for the Hybrid, we are sure.
2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid Black Label
At top of the offer, we will find the 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid Black Label. Everything is special and unique about this version of any Lincoln vehicle. Every edition is different and the highlights of these models are themed interiors. The cabin is getting features to enhance the feeling of the theme. We still don’t know what kind of topic will be used for the 2020 Navigator Hybrid, but be sure it is going to be spectacular.
Ford Electrification Plans
Mustang crossover will be the first product of the heavy money load invested in electrification. That is exactly what Ford needs – a big name to start an evolution. All Ford’s vehicles will have some kind of an electric drivetrain in their offer. By 2022 there will be 40 model, and that will cost a hell. By 2020, the US carmaker plans to spend $11 billion. Besides Mustang, the Blue Oval company needs few more big names to popularize this segment. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid will be based on the best-selling vehicle in the US, F-150 full-size truck.
According to latest rumors, both models, together with the Ford Expedition, will arrive somewhere next year. Exactly when, we still don’t know. Since the truck is more popular, we can also check out rumors about its hybridization and we will get clues about the 2020 Lincoln Navigator Hybrid. But, it seems like the premium SUV will get a diesel engine before the greener variant. A 3.0-liter Power Stroke is a bit late, but it will be ready for the next season. Since the F-150 is getting it, we can definitely say that Navigator will get a diesel power for its engine room.
