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.

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.
