Fancy picking up a refreshed Lincoln Navigator? Well, prepare to shell out at least $62,475. That's a whopping increase of $6,310 for the now-EcoBoost-equipped SUV.

That's just for the two-wheel-drive Select model, though. Want to drive all four wheels? Better have an extra $3,575 laying around. Snagging the top-of-the-line Reserve model, meanwhile, demands a premium of $7,500.

For those extra bills, you'll net Lincoln Drive Control, complete with continuously controlled dampers, power running boards, Ziricote wood interior trim, upgraded leather, 22-inch wheels, a "unique" interior headliner and, of course, a "Reserve" badge.

Finally, adding the long-wheelbase bodystyle tacks on an extra $2,165. Other optional goodies include 22-inch wheels, if you pass on the Reserve trim; the bigger hoops are $2,500 on two-wheel-drive models and $1,850 on 4WD Navis. If you'd prefer 20s, there are also a set of dark-finish aluminum wheels that can replace the stock items, for $495. A sunroof is $995, a rear-seat entertainment system with monitors inserted in the headrests is $1,995 and the two premium paint options – White Platinum Tri-Coat Metallic and Ruby Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat – are $695 and $495, respectively.

All told, a four-wheel-drive Navigator L Reserve will demand $75,065. Regardless of how the Navigator is outfitted, Lincoln has positioned it squarely against the new GMC Yukon Denali. The prices of the two are virtually mirrored, with the Denali starting at $62,680 and the Denali XL starting at $65,380. Which would you choose? Let us know in Comments, and take a look below for the full pricing release from Lincoln.

Pricing Announced for New 2015 Lincoln Navigator and Premium Reserve Package

> 2015 Lincoln Navigator full-size luxury SUV goes on sale later this year with a starting manufacturer's suggested retail price of $62,475, including destination and delivery charges

> Redesigned exterior, updated interior, more powerful engine, additional customer-focused technologies and new luxurious appointments elevate next Lincoln Navigator

> Available Reserve Package includes 22-inch wheels, ultra-luxurious leather interior and premium Ziricote wood trim; manufacturer's suggested retail price for 4x2 models equipped with the Reserve Package is $69,975



DEARBORN, Mich., May 20, 2014 – The 2015 Lincoln Navigator full-size sport utility vehicle, with a refreshed exterior design, refined interior appointments and more power and better handling than ever, will go on sale later this year with a starting suggested manufacturer's retail price of $62,475, including destination and delivery charges.

"The 2015 Lincoln Navigator has nearly two dozen upgrades over the outgoing model, rewarding current Navigator owners and offering strong reasons for new customers to consider the vehicle that defined the large luxury SUV segment," said Matt VanDyke, director, Global Lincoln.

Leading the now-standard features for the 2015 Navigator is a new powertrain with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine. The twin-turbocharged, direct-injection engine will deliver 380 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque.

This outstanding power also delivers projected best-in-class towing of 9,000 pounds with properly equipped Navigators.

The new EcoBoost engine is mated to a six-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission – also new for the 2015 model year.

Also added for the 2015 Lincoln Navigator is Lincoln Drive Control with a continuously controlled damping suspension to help provide a smoother ride, and electric power-assisted steering that helps deliver responsive handling. Continuously controlled damping is standard on all 4x4 models and all Navigators equipped with the available 22-inch wheels.

Lincoln Navigator 4x4 models add hill start assist and Hill Descent Control™ as standard equipment.

Exterior design changes are accentuated by iconic split-wing grille, while puddle lamps that create a "welcome mat" below front doors offer a new level of elegance.

Among standard interior enhancements are luxurious leather and additional new customer-focused technologies, including push-button start, SYNC® with MyLincoln Touch™ connectivity system, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, and an LED-backlit instrument cluster with tachometer, trip odometer, compass, outside thermometer and message center.

The new Reserve Package provides features for customers seeking the ultimate in Navigator luxury. The package includes Lincoln Drive Control with continuously controlled damping, 22-inch polished aluminum wheels, premium Ziricote wood trim and ultra-luxurious leather-trimmed seats in all three rows. Also included is a hand-wrapped leather and stitched instrument panel, armrests and console.

The suggested manufacturer's retail price MSRP for 4x2 models equipped with the Reserve Package is $69,975; 4x4 Reserve Package models start at $72,900.

Lincoln Navigator L, offering customers a longer wheelbase and greater overall length, will continue to be available in both 4x2 and 4x4 versions. Navigator L has a 131-inch wheelbase (versus 119 inches for the standard wheelbase) and a total length of 222.3 inches (versus 208.4 inches).

Standard on Lincoln Navigator L is a non-limited-slip 4.10 axle. This axle is available on standard-wheelbase versions as well.

Suggested manufacturer's retail price for the 2015 Lincoln Navigator L starts at $64,640 for the 4x2 version and $68,215 for the 4x4 version. Prices include destination and delivery charges.

The 2015 Lincoln Navigator is built at Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, Kentucky, and is scheduled to be in showrooms early this fall.

      Decent updates until the all new Navigator is released in 2016. Lincoln was smart to focus on getting the new MKC out first (on sale soon), and then a new MKX (on sale next year), before turning to a new Navigator.

        Yup This is just a very Late cycle refresh to compete with new GM big SUVs... Then the All New aluminum Znavigator comes out in 2-3 years based on the new 2015 chassis and next gen EcoBoost drivetrain with 10-speed auto... Then it will be Lincoln's turn... Just a matter of time The highend Premium Reserve interior of this Nav is way better than the GMs and priced right at $72k at the starting price of Escalade...! Much better deal...!

        Uh, I think it had a lot more to do with the fact that their full-size trucks need an update, and 2015 was going to be when that happened, so it didn't make sense to dump effort into an offshoot truck when the R&D was being spent on the Ford side. The MKC and MKX have followed the redesign schedules of their Ford counterparts as well. I do not see how it was a matter of shuffling the deck and strategizing what came out first. Maybe you mean focusing on volume models first, but the Navigator is the worst-selling Lincoln, so it's no surprise they focused on the MKC and MKX first.

      Remind me why I would drop $70K on this brash hunk of junk when I could use that money to buy a Mercedes GL450 or Range Rover Sport.

        Range Rover Sport?  You better check the price increases.  Cough up another 30K and no room inside.  Use premium fuel all the time and be prepared to get to know your Dealer Repairs Department's Personal on a first name basis.  Even though they have improved under Indian ownership TATA, still near the worst in repairs.  Whether cover under warranty or not, they are a pain, and the Lincoln will actually hold it's value better over 7-10 years.  I admit, they look the best on the road, but the repairs are just awful for their prices.  Had a 2008, made me put off retirement by a couple of years.

      This $62k Navi is sooooo much better in every way than a $45k Expedition. Oh. Wait. Never mind. RIP Lincoln.

      I thought the navigator to be a competitor for the escalade.. The navigator needs to be completely redone instead of a refresh. It's not bad though. I remember in the late 90s early 2000s when this car use to reign supreme before all these emission laws and costly gas prices. They need to bring back that level of opulence in completely new design. With these cars I highly doubt gas prices affect their sales in anyway. Look how well the g wagon and the escalade are doing

      Amazing. It's old and dated looking before it came out.

      Can't think of one reason why anyone would pay $70,000 for this thing or any SUV for that matter.

        $70k for a Grand Cherokee SRT8 is more than worth it. Same for an Escalade.

      $10,000 less than an Escalade so yeah I think pricing is fine.

        Or $62k for an almost 20 year old rebadged Expedition.

      I'd take a Tahoe over this. This thing is a joke at that price.

      So, based on that pricing, is Lincoln just full-on admitting that it's not a competitor to Cadillac then? They are pricing it squarely at the Yukon Denali instead. Interesting considering that they started the American luxury SUV movement before Cadillac rushed the 1st-gen Escalade to market to compete. Probably not a terrible move I guess considering that the Escalade has owed the Navigator in sales for the past decade.

        Nah, I think Lincoln is just being more realistic about pricing. That price is what Ford thinks the Navigator is worth. GM seems to be up in the night with their prices though.

          And yet they sell better than the Navigator and GM's margins have been better than the rest of the industry of late as well. Sounds to me like they have it handled pretty well. That said, I agree with you, Ford is selling the Navigator at a price they think it's worth. GM is doing the same. It's just that said price shows that Lincoln isn't trying to compete in the same market as the Escalade.

          The Navigator does compete in the same market as the Escalade, just at a lower price. You see this all the time. Hyundai competed with Toyota and Honda for decades by undercutting their prices.

        Considering it's platform is over a decade old and this their second facelift. The only significant change is the Ecoboost V6. The interior looks like a high trim level F-150. I would say it's a tad overpriced.
