You Can Now Unlock Lincoln’s Massive 2020 Navigator with Your Smartphone

Lincoln’s biggest and baddest SUV has a bold new monochrome look and cutting edge smartphone tech.


The new Lincoln Navigator is upping its game, entering the next decade in high style. The luxury SUV‘s 2020 updates include a striking collection of monochromatic color schemes—Infinite Black, Pristine White, and Ceramic Pearl—and more importantly, outstanding new tech upgrades. 

Pristine White

Some of the added, new standard features to whet your appetite: 

  • Power running boards
  • Wireless charging pads
  • Heated and cooled seats in the front
  • The biggie: you will be able to use your smartphone as a car key

With Lincoln’s new smartphone setup, you will be able to use your phone as a master key, unlocking doors and trunk and starting the engine. 

Ceramic Gray

Apple, Audi, and BMW all agreed on a standard for using phones as keys in 2018, so in that sense Lincoln is just joining the crowd. However those manufacturers don’t provide the Lincoln Co-Pilot360 package, which is chock-full of excellent features geared toward driver assistance. They include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, a lane-keeping system, and blind spot detection. 


In announcing the 2020s Lincoln didn’t get into specific changes under the hood, so it’s likely the new line of Navigators will still boast a 10-speed automatic gearbox and a stout 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine.

The 2020 Lincoln Navigator will go on sale in November 2019. Keep an eye out for news on pricing, which will likely be released in the fall.
