The upcoming next-gen Lincoln Navigator will be available with two new Black Label themes and Lincoln’s first ActiveGlide hands-free technology.
Lincoln continues unveiling the features which the 2022 Navigator is bringing, and they are actually noteworthy.
Firstly, a pair of exclusive Black Level themes – Central Park and Invitation – adds new elements of craftsmanship.
Central Park (named after a famous urban park) stands out with open-pore dark walnut that extends the entire length of the dashboard and depicts lasered-in scenic pathways of the park. It represents a balance between the organic oasis and skyscrapers of New York.
Invitation boasts detailed luxury created by industry-first dual laser-etching and a unique, open-pore Khaya wood finish of the center console and instrument panel.
Black Label is currently available on the Navigator, Aviator, and Nautilus. This theme has contributed to their sales increase. In 2021, Black Label sales have improved 35 percent on the Lincoln Navigator and now represent over one-fifth of all Navigator sales.
Secondly, Lincoln ActiveGlide – a new hands-free driver-assist tech debuts on the next Lincoln Navigator. This is an evolution of Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Centering, and Speed Sign Recognition.
When the system’s camera and radar are working, signature blue light cues emerge on the digital cluster and head-up display, and the driver can operate the vehicle hands-free on prequalified sections of divided highways.
Across North American highways, there are more than 130,000 miles of Hands-Free Blue Zones in the GPS mapping system of Lincoln. To ensure the driver’s eyes remain on the road, a driver-facing camera monitors eye gaze and head position.
The new Navigator also has such functions as Lincoln Enhance over-the-air software updates and Amazon Alexa Built-in. The 2022 model will be arriving in dealerships in early 2022.
