Ford has updated the 2015 Lincoln Navigator as part of efforts to breathe new life into its Lincoln luxury brand and executives say longer-term plans are to introduce a next-generation Navigator that will be all new.

Longer terms mean 2 years? or maybe 3 I hope but I don´t know why I think that Lincoln depending on sales success they will sell this 2015 Navi for 4 or 5 years. Maybe 4 years maximum because if GM are planning aluminum for the next trucks that means also aluminum for its SUVs and Ford won´t want to launch its aluminum SUVs after the GM products.

this is also interesting:
And while the overall segment is only about 50,000 SUVs a year, it has remained stable in recent years
This fullsize Luxury segment is very small:
Escalade 22,154
Navigator 8,613
MB GL 29,912
Audi Q7 15,000 (aprox number)
Range Rover 12,000 (aprox number)

and really the GL and the Q7 are more like the MKT rather than Escalade and Navi size, so in the full size luxury segment there are only 2 SUVs and the tota market is less than 35k SUVs, a lot of cars sells the double of that

I was checking the Navi minisite webpage and it says 370hp and 430 torque, they don´t change it like they did wih the MKC so why they said at least 370hp if they were going to mantein that hp

Claiming "at least" still qualifies it. That is standard practice as they finalize. And I am not sure it is finalized either.

Regardless, hp happens as a function of RPM's, so nobody is going to rev these beasts. What matters is that instant torque, and this motor delivers that splendidly.
yeah, agree, thanks for the clarification wings
