With the debut of the new 2022 Navigator, Lincoln is elevating first-class travel yet again with the introduction of more effortless technologies.
The new 2022 Navigator is the first Lincoln vehicle to offer ActiveGlide. An evolution of Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Centering and Speed Sign Recognition, Lincoln ActiveGlide* adds a new level of convenience for drivers. Blue light cues appear on the digital cluster and head-up display to indicate when the system’s advanced camera and radar are activated, enabling drivers to operate Navigator hands-free on prequalified sections of divided highways. Hands-Free Blue Zones include more than 130,000 miles of dedicated highways across North America in the Lincoln GPS mapping system. A driver-facing camera in the instrument cluster monitors eye gaze and head position to help ensure a driver’s eyes stay on the road.
Also new is the Navigator SYNC® 4** system, enabled by cloud connectivity, which is now more intuitive than ever, with twice the computing power and the ability to wirelessly connect smartphones for seamless integration of Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and SYNC AppLink® apps.
Lincoln Enhance delivers wireless software updates that bring the latest system and modem technologies and improvements to the new Navigator. The updates install new features and conduct preventative maintenance to reduce repair trips and improve performance, allowing Navigator to get even better over time. The built-in hands-free Amazon Alexa† experience offers clients complimentary access to key features for up to three years.
To add, the upgraded massage system available in the 30-way Perfect Position Seats takes relaxation for driver and front passenger to a new level. Second-row seats now come with standard heat, ventilation and available segment-first massage capability with Active Motion. Even better, second-row passengers can now control their seat, climate and audio settings on a new 5.8-inch digital module.
The 2022 Navigator boasts a responsive powertrain and impressive handling capabilities with an advanced 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine that offers a blend of power and refinement with an impressive 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.
Lincoln continues to build on its comprehensive, standard suite of driver-assist technology – Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ 2.0†† – to provide clients with additional ways to customize their vehicle. New standard features include:
· Intersection Assist: Navigator can alert a driver attempting to turn left by applying the brakes when camera and radar technology detects oncoming traffic
· Active Park Assist 2.0: The latest iteration of park-assist technologies – Active Park Assist 2.0 offers Park Out Assist with side-sensing capability so drivers can confidently navigate out of a spot when someone is parked too close
Additional standard features include Forward Collision Warning, Post Collision Braking, Distance Alert, Dynamic Brake Support, Pedestrian Detection, Auto Hold, hill start assist, automatic headlamps, Voice-Activated Touchscreen Navigation and Phone As A Key.
The new Navigator will be built at Kentucky Truck Plant and arrives in dealerships early next year. For full press release go to https://media.lincoln.com/content/lincolnmedia/lna/us/en/news/2021/08/18/new-lincoln-navigator-commands-the-road.html
