Its been spied trolling the streets of Dearborn. It should be getting the new lincoln face as well as a revised rear end (hello lightbar?) but most promising to us fuel efficiency aficionados is going to be the addition of EcoBoost power. thw '15 Navi is expected to receive fords tried and true EcoBoost 3.5 TT V6 capable of pulling down 26-27 MPG...

I'm actually looking forward to this although I would never buy one.
Hopefully they made some significant changes since the new Escalade has that.
Is it still Ford-based or more of a Lincoln than it is a Ford?

Yay for EcoBoost!

I am nervous about how the navigator will look with the new Lincoln grille though. I am anticipating that grille making the front of the vehicle look bulbous and too rounded. The light bar on the back should be nice though.

With Cadillac and Lincoln both updating their full size SUVs, don't you think Infiniti will have to do the same soon?

They just updated the Nissan Patrol which is basically the QX80. That should give clues as to what we can expect from the next-gen QX80. It shouldn't be too hard for them to turn the Patrol into the QX80 so a next-gen model could be launched sooner rather than later.

im pretty sure the overseas update to the patrol was actually in line with the refreshed QX80. the new Patrol/QX80 debuted in 2010, so it would of seen MINOR updates to this point. Its still a relatively new vehicle, whereas the Nacigator has been running around like that for 8 years or so.

Looking forward to seeing how they update things

Navigator is in desperate need of an update

Seems like full sized SUVs are in this year because alot of them are becoming updated!

navigator really does need to be saved.
lucky for them, even if it's not the ideal luxury SUV to consumers, it will still be seeing a ton of fleet sales.

the new Navi broke cover yesterday and its showing up with a new ecoboost engine that should really give it a clean cut edge in fuel economy over other big haulers like QX80, escalade and Rovers...





Thats the stretched out L model. Here is the standard and the interior

Can't say im impressed, i'm also not disappointed. I just think they could have done a much better job with it's design.
It's rival, the Escalade is a much better looking SUV, in my opinion.
