2022 Lincoln Navigator Refreshed With Hands-Off Driver Assistance

Navigator finds its way to 2022 upgrades

  • New nose gives Navi a more corporate look

  • Tech upgrades inside boost connectivity

Lincoln has just revealed a new flagship. The Navigator gets freshened for 2022 with some new threads outside, new features, and a new hands-off driver assistance system as well as Sync4.

The assistance system is called Lincoln ActiveGlide, the brand’s version of Ford’s Blue Cruise. It combines adaptive cruise control, lane centering, and speed sign recognition with advanced mapping to allow hands-off driving on more than 210,000 km of divided highway across Canada and the U.S. Like the similar system from GM, a camera monitors the driver to make sure that though their hands are not on the wheel, their eyes are as the driver still needs to be able to take control.

Tech upgrades continue in the interior, with Sync 4 boasting cloud connectivity and more than twice the computing power it had previously. Lincoln Enhance over-the-air updates are available, and the system offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wirelessly. The system can answer natural language questions and has simplified route planning options. Second-row seating now has standard heat and ventilation, and offers optional massage, all controlled by a rear seat screen. Driver and front passenger have available 30-way adjustable Perfect Position Seats.

Outside, the 2022 Lincoln Navigator gets headlights more like the rest of the family, as well as an updated signature grille. Adaptive pixel lamps accentuate the fascia while the taillamps offer a 3D look and new signature welcome light animation.

Hardware changes include Adaptive Suspension with Road Preview. A camera reads the road 500 times a second to adjust the suspension up to 100 times a second to smooth the ride. 12 other sensors are part of the system. For towing, Trailer Reverse Guidance is also available.

The 2022 Lincoln Navigator offers 440 hp, 10 less than last year, but the same 510 lb-ft from a 3.5L V6. Pricing was not revealed, but the 2022 model will arrive at dealers early next year.
