  • 2020 Lincoln SUV Lineup: What’s new, what’s the same, and what’s still to come?

Lincoln is in a huge expansion these days, so you can count on a lot of excitement for the next year. The company has started with a complete overhaul of its lineup recently, so there are a plethora of all-new models, including several SUVs. The legendary Navigator has been redesigned a couple of years ago, while there are also some brand-new names, such as Nautilus, Aviator and Corsair. Interestingly, there is also a large MKT, which is the oldest and the biggest crossover in the lineup. All in all – a couple of brand-new models, a couple of very fresh models and a couple of proven designs is what you can expect from 2020 Lincoln SUV lineup. Here they are:



2020 Lincoln Navigator

2020 Lincoln Navigator

Considering that the current generation of this full-size luxury SUV is still pretty fresh, as it debuted less than two years ago. Therefore, we expect from the upcoming model to hit showrooms without bigger changes. The 2020 Lincoln Navigator specs are about to remain the same. Count on the same Expedition-based mechanics, along with Lincolns new styling philosophy, which has brought this brand to the completely next level.

Styling will remain untouched, as well as the 2020 Lincoln Navigator interior. Plush materials, lots of space and a full load of standard equipment is what you can expect from the upcoming model. Of course, there is a chance to see a couple of novelties in terms of standard equipment, but the core will definitely remain the same. Therefore, count that even most basic models will come standard with things like large 20-inch wheels, tri-zone climate control, genuine wood trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, ambient lighting, 10-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi hotspot, power-adjustable front seats and many more.

Of course, count on a long list of options as well. The basic equipment level structure will remain the same, so 2020 Lincoln Navigator Black Label will remain the flagship version, with highlights like unique styling and interior details, a full load of safety features etc.

A familiar 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 is about to remain the same. With a max output of 450 horsepower and 10-speed automatic transmission, you can count on excellent ride quality. Some reports suggest 2020 Lincoln Navigator hybrid version for the near future, but that doesn’t sound very likely at the moment.

The base price will go around 73.500 dollars.

2020 Lincoln Aviator

2020 Lincoln Aviator

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator was definitely one of the most anticipated models for the next year. The production started a month ago and the new SUV represents the company in the segment of a mid-size luxury crossover. When it comes to base 2020 Lincoln Aviator specs, the new model is in a close relationship with the new Explorer. It features the same RWD platform and shares most of the mechanics.

On the other side, the new model features Lincoln’s newest design language, based on the newest version of legendary Continental and Navigator models. Compared to the Navigator, this one is rather a crossover, so don’t count on spectacular capabilities. When it comes to the 2020 Lincoln Aviator GVWR – towing capacity, the exact details are still unavailable, but we count on similar numbers to the new Explorer. That would mean around 6.200 pounds.

Under the hood, the 2020 Lincoln Aviator comes with the company’s new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, which is good for about 400 horsepower. Another interesting novelty is a new plug-in hybrid version, which delivers full 450 horsepower and over 600 pound-feet of torque. At this point, we don’t know fuel economy details about the new hybrid. On the other side, the standard 2020 Lincoln Aviator mpg ratings will go around 118 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

When it comes to trim level organization, count on Lincoln’s typical namings, which means that the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Black Label will be reserved for the best-equipped versions. Starting price goes around 51.000 dollars.



2020 Lincoln Corsair


Another big novelty for the famous American luxury brand is this small luxury crossover. The Corsair comes as a direct successor of the MKC, and it is part of the company’s new naming policy, which won’t include those generic three-leather nameplates anymore.

Lincoln Corsair

The new 2020 Lincoln Corsair is a compact crossover and it is designed to compete with models like BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Porsche Macan, but we would say rather with more affordable models like Lexus NX, Audi Q5, Acura RDX etc. As you can see, the competition is very strong, but the Corsair comes with a lot of trumps.

Stylish exterior and even better interior layouts are some of them. While the exterior is heavily based on the brand’s newest design language, the 2020 Lincoln Corsair interior also features a fine amount of distinctive details, as well as a very long list of standard equipment, which includes tons of tech goodies as well.

Under the hood, you can count on two powertrain choices. Base models will feature a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which delivers around 250 horsepower. An optional engine is a familiar 2.3-liter unit, with a max output of 280 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque.

We expect that the 2020 Lincoln Corsair release date will be scheduled for the third quarter of the year. The base price will go around 36.000 dollars.



2020 Lincoln Nautilus


Lincoln has switched to the new naming policy almost entirely. In most cases, new models came, but there were some exceptions as well. One of them is the Nautilus. It came a year ago, with a completely new styling, based on Lincoln’s latest design language. It looks very stylish, but the fact is that this isn’t an all-new model under the skin. Its predecessor, the MKX was last time redesigned three years ago. So, the new name came as a part of a mid-cycle refresh.

Therefore, the styling may look completely new, but the fact is that mechanics haven’t changed too much. So, the Nautilus doesn’t offer the most spectacular driving experience, if we compare it with rivals. Also, you will notice that the interior isn’t at the level you would expect from new Lincoln cars. Therefore, some reports were even suggesting a 2020 Lincoln Nautilus redesign.


Of course, that won’t happen and the current model will carry on for a couple of more years for sure. That’s also the reason why 2020 Lincoln Nautilus price will be more affordable compared to rivals.

There are two familiar engines in the offer. Base models are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 250 horsepower. If you prefer something peppier, opt for a 2.7-liter twin-turbo, which features a max output of 335 horsepower.

Since there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus release date will be scheduled for the end of the year.


2020 Lincoln MKT


Although it is pretty old, it looks like the MKT will carry on for some time. Some reports were suggesting 2020 Lincoln MKT replacement, but it looks like it will continue in the same way in the next year. The main reasons for that are 2020 Lincoln MKT dimensions. It will continue to be the largest crossover in the company’s lineup, with plenty of space on the inside.

The 2020 Lincoln MKT interior is definitely the strongest point. With three spacious rows of seats, it can comfortably accommodate 7 adult passengers. Also, the cabin still looks opulent, despite the age. All in all, this cabin is a nice place to be in.

2019 MKT

Under the hood, the 2020 Lincoln MKT will continue with a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6, which delivers pretty solid 365 horsepower. This is definitely a strong performer, but fuel economy isn’t great. Moreover, this is one of the thirstiest models in the class. It returns around 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

The 2020 Lincoln MKT Hybrid has been rumored as well, but doesn’t seem likely at this point and probably won’t come.
