Changes to the 2022 Lincoln Models

Jessica Shea Choksey | Dec 01, 2021

For 2022, Lincoln’s four crossover/SUV lineup receives minor changes across the board. The Corsair, Nautilus, and Aviator each arrive with revised exterior color palettes and numerous equipment and appearance package updates. However, the most significant upgrades go to Lincoln’s largest SUV, the Navigator, which becomes the first model in the brand’s lineup to receive ActiveGlide semi-autonomous driving technology. The Navigator also receives minor front and rear styling changes. All powertrains across the model line are carryover.

Wireless charging is now standard on the Aviator Reserve and Grand Touring trims, while a head-up display and phone-as-a-key functionality are now standard with the Reserve I and Grand Touring I packages. The Convenience package is no longer available, and its features are now offered separately as standalone options. The Illumination package now pairs newly added LED fog lamps with Adaptive Pixel LED headlamps.

Additionally, a new Monochromatic appearance package offers unique black, white, and gray color schemes, as well as oversized 22-inch wheels and body-color exterior elements.
