What’s the price of improved off-road capability, better traction in inclement weather, and that oh-so-important all-wheel drive badge? Well, Lincoln has a number for you. The price of all-wheel drive is more than $5,000, at least in the context of the slightly updated 2024 Lincoln Navigator full-size luxury 3-row SUV. The new model year drops its previously available rear-wheel drive Standard trim, so the Navigator is now only offered with AWD on Premiere, Reserve, and Black Label trims—bringing the base price up to the Premiere’s level—but there are a few more updates here and there to go over as well.
2024 Lincoln Navigator Power
The 2024 Navi will solely be offered with the carryover twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 making 440 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque (on premium fuel) that powers all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission. It’s still based on the same T3 body-on-frame platform as the Ford Expedition, and like the Expedition, the 2024 Navigator is still available in various extended-wheelbase “L” variants. That engine is good for a tow rating of up to 8,300 pounds, which drops to 8,100 pounds for extended Navigator L trims.
2024 Lincoln Navigator Trims
The Navigator has brought back its previously-available Flight Blue exterior paint color choice for some trims, previously offered as a non-metallic color back in 2022 but now offered in a different metallic finish for the 2024 model year; last year’s Ocean Blue paint finish is no longer available on any trim. All color choices come with a $750 up-charge save for black and silver, on the Premiere and Reserve, and there are two $2,000 paint choices available on the Black Label. As previously mentioned, the Standard trim has been dropped, so we start with the Premiere trim:
The newest addition to the now-entry-level Navigator Premiere trim (remember, the old Standard is gone) is a three month trial of BlueCruise 1.0 hands-free driving (you may recall it was previously branded Activeglide). When activated, BlueCruise 1.0 allows the driver to take their hands off the wheel while rolling down the road on 130,000 miles of specific prequalified North American roads, although a face-monitoring camera ensures the driver keeps their eyes on the road ahead. While activated, the driver display shows a unique “Blue Zone” screen and a picture of the steering wheel with the text “Hands Free” above to denote when it’s engaged, or when the driver needs to take back full control.
Otherwise, the Premiere trim starts out with 20-inch machined aluminum wheels, chrome-surround grille, powered deployable running boards, adaptive suspension, and the trailer tow package as standard. It’s also well-equipped inside, with tri-zone climate control, 12-inch digital driver display, power-adjustable pedals, 13.2-inch dashboard touchscreen with Sync 4, wireless phone charging pad, ambient lighting, 14-speaker audio setup, heated steering, heated and ventilated front and second row seating, available 4G WiFi network, and more as standard features. For $1,895 there is an available Plus Exterior Package that swaps in 22-inch wheels, panoramic glass roof, and upgrades the powered running boards to get illumination.
For Reserve and Black Label trims, the full BlueCruise 1.0 system is included with no trial for a four year period. The Reserve trim’s exterior upgrades to the Premiere’s available 22-inch machined aluminum wheels as the standard choice. A different 22-inch design with 12-spoke and black painted pockets is available for $995, or there’s an optional all-black 22-inch 8-spoke design included in the purchase price. The all-black wheel is also included if you option the $1,995 Monochromatic Package which also includes a body-colored bumper accent and body-colored mirrors (and is only offered with Infinite Black, Pristine White, or Ceramic Pearl exterior colors). Reserve trim also gets illuminated powered deployable running boards and the panoramic roof as standard, and the interior upgrades to 24-way front seats with leather and adds seat memory for the passenger, as well as a Head-Up Display (HUD) for the driver .
The regular Reserve trim is also available as the extended Navigator L body, with an additional 12-inches of cargo volume. An available $6,310 “Reserve I” upgrade package includes an illuminated Lincoln badge on the nose of the SUV, 30-way adjustable massaging front seats, LED-illuminated first and second row seatbelts, and a 28-speaker 3D sound system.
The Black Label trim, also available as a stretched L body, builds on the Reserve treatment with the 22-inch, 12-spoke wheel design with black painted pockets as standard, light-up grille badge on a unique grille design, and the panoramic roof standard. Inside there are unique black carpeted floor mats and optional design themes to choose from when ordering that informed style and trim selections: Chalet, Yacht Club, Invitation, or Central Park. The 30-way adjustable massaging front seats are standard, as are illuminated seatbelt buckles, and the 28-speaker 3D audio.
The available $6,695 Special Edition Package (which can’t come in all-black paint) options the all-black 22-inch wheels, a unique black-chrome mesh grille, black mirrors, and a black-painted roofline with painted black roof rack .
2024 Lincoln Navigator Pricing
The Navigator Premiere starts at $84,660 after factoring in destination and delivery charges. The Reserve is priced from $97,220, or around $3,000 more on top if you want the L model. The Black Label tricks over into six figures with a $112,645 starting price, with a similar price increase for the bigger L model. Only Reserve, Reserve L, Black Label, and Black Label L trims are offered with the optional $2,600 Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Package if you’ve got some serious hauling to do. All models come with an 18-inch spare tucked away. Hopefully the Lincoln brand gets around to offering a hybrid soon, considering the company should have the technology to make it possible in Ford pickups, and it’s also already promised a fully-electric version of the Navigator sometime in the future. We’ve already seen Cadillac’s all-electric Escalade, so maybe Lincoln will act soon.
