The 2021 Lincoln Navigator remains practically unchanged this year apart from a few aesthetic updates over the previous model year. The changes include an optional Monochromatic appearance package that gets dark exterior treatment instead of chrome and black alloy wheels instead of silver. Lincoln has also replaced 4 paint color options with 4 new ones and is expected to give the Navigator a mid-cycle refresh next year. The 2021 Lincoln Navigator price starts at an MSRP of $78,400 including the $1,695 destination fee and sees a price hike of $920. 

Featuring a 3-trim lineup of the Navigator, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator MSRP can be an expense of $78,400-$100,350 this season. Having said that, it simply translates to the fact that the range-leader 2021 Lincoln Navigator Black Label will cost you $21,950 more than the base 2021 Navigator for enhanced specs and assets.

We Recommend

While the top-end Black Label trim tends to get very expensive as its price stands on par with other premium European luxury SUVs, we would suggest opting for the 2021 Lincoln Navigator Reserve trim which offers the most value for money to its buyers. 


The 2021 Navigator continues to be powered by the same 3.5-liter twin-turbo 450-hp V6 engine that offers strong acceleration and towing performance. The Lincoln Navigator interior not only offers abundant passenger and cargo space, but the available safety, technology, and creature comforts also make it a strong option in the full-size luxury SUV segment. At this price point, the Navigator 2021 competes against the likes of the BMW X7, Cadillac Escalade, Infiniti QX80, and the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

A bold grille highlights the imposing stance of the new Navigator, which is a testament to its unapologetic strength. It takes those unbridled 450 ponies and gives itself the capability to carry eight passengers in ultra-plush comfort.  When it comes to Lincoln Navigator towing capacity, it holds as much as 6,200 lbs of towing capacity. Lincoln navigator safety metrics also stand out with a five-star rating from the NHTSA.

The Lincoln SUV can be elaborated further with a Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow package and an optional Monochromatic appearance package. The 2021 Lincoln Navigator has a maintenance cost of $3,467 along with an estimated repairing expense of $1,452 over a course of five years. A depreciation in its resale value could hit as high as $50,000 for the same period.

Fuel Economy

8.0/10

The 2021 Lincoln Navigator gas mileage is quite good for a vehicle of this class and size. In cities, the fuel economy is rated at 16 mpg, while highway miles are accounted for at 21 mpg, and combining these figures yields 18 mpg. A 23.2-gallon gasoline tank that is standard on the 2021 Lincoln Navigator allows it to cover as much as 487.6 miles in a single fill.

With a lighter curb weight than competitors, the BMW X7 offers the best fuel economy at 22 mpg combined. On the other hand, the GLS-Class is more fuel-efficient than Navigator by offering 3 mpg more than Navigator in combined scenarios. Cadillac's expansive fuel tank ensures that it can drive for longer distances without stopping at a gas station, but it's least fuel-efficient among its competitors. 

Interior

8.9/10

The 2021 Lincoln Navigator interior exudes luxury providing seats covered in high-end leather for an outstanding plush feel and featuring adjustable massage functions that use air chambers to streamline your travel experience. An elegant and sturdy center console made of genuine wood goes well with leather trim seats, packed with heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, power tilt/telescope steering wheel with memory, power-adjustable pedals with memory, 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory and lumbar support, and heated steering wheel as standard across all the trims.

While it gives all of its competitors a run for their money regarding seating, the Cadillac Escalade offers more space for the first row than the Lincoln Navigator seats. The Navigator seats provide sufficient wiggle space inside the vehicle but do not outshine any metrics and give balanced space to all passengers. For entertainment and infotainment, Lincoln Navigator features a 10-inch high-resolution LCD touchscreen with a touchpad, along with with a 14-speaker Revel premium sound system. A cargo room of 19.3 cubic feet ensures that one can pack and go for long trips without any concerns.

Exterior

6.0/10

The 2021 Lincoln Navigator, with its chic curves and chrome detailing goes great with the curvaceous roofline, supplying a sleeker profile while maintaining higher seating. Standard Navigator models come with 20-inch machined alloy wheels and chrome-tipped dual exhaust tips in the rear. A large precisely positioned set of projector-beam headlamps and Revised LED Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs) accentuate the new signature front styling.

The Reserve model adds 22-inch alloy wheels and a panoramic vista roof. The Black Label model adds an illuminated Lincoln star to the grille. Every Navigator comes standard with a complete set of LED exterior lights, which include headlights, taillights, daytime running lights, and fog lights. The Lincoln Navigator weight metric does come in at the highest though, at 5,855 lbs.

The 2021 Lincoln Navigator is the heaviest of all SUVs because of its extensively upgraded mechanicals and interior convenience equipment. Diagonally, though, the Cadillac Escalade is the largest, so it offers the most comfort. The BMW X7 is the most compact model in the group, on the other hand, the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class features the longest wheelbase in the competition.

Safety

6.0/10

Based on the success of previous versions of the Navigator, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator will be equally safe. In addition to its class-exclusive driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping alert, and auto high-beam headlamps, the Navigator also includes advanced security features. Several driver safety assistance systems, including a forward collision mitigation system, blind-spot detection system, and lane-keeping assist are built into Lincoln Co-pilot 360, which is standard on all trims and add to the SUV safety. Standard and available safety features include:

  • Lane-Keeping Assist system

Competition

9.0/10

2021 Lincoln Navigator vs 2021 BMW X7

Both the 2021 BMW X7 and the 2021 Lincoln Navigator offer top-of-the-line comfort and convenience features, including a large and luxurious interior, rear seats that recline, and more. With its plush interiors, potent engine, and very composed and refined ride quality, the BMW X7 stands out. However, it lacks practicality, and that is where you find the Lincoln Navigator, which provides a memorable and practical ride each time you travel in it. 

2021 Lincoln Navigator vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class

The 2021 Lincoln Navigator and 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class are heavy-duty luxury vehicles that are similar in many ways. Both appeal to customers who value comfort and convenience and drivers who value a smooth ride over serious off-road capability. However, Lincoln Navigator offers the best value in terms of comfort, luxury, and convenience items with the best value in class. On the other hand, the GLS-Class offers very smooth performance and excellent drive dynamics.

2021 Lincoln Navigator vs 2021 Cadillac Escalade

With the arrival of the 2021 Lincoln Navigator, the Cadillac Escalade is seen as an eternal competitor once again. While the Lincoln Navigator appears to be a nearly identical car on paper, it is significantly different in terms of both its road presence and its interior luxury. Further, the Navigator provides more space per passenger than the Escalade, whose front row is crammed. Plus, the Lincoln comes equipped with a smaller but stronger engine, resulting in a more efficient and performance-oriented SUV than the Escalade.

Final Verdict


Created to truly stand out in a sea of sport utilities, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator redefines luxury on the move with a host of luxury features that let you drift off to sleep in complete comfort even on the longest of journeys. From the standpoint of comfort, technology, and horsepower, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator is an impressive SUV. All in all, the luxurious SUV would make a great addition to any family or executive's car fleet.
