The Navigator gets several features as standard equipment, including ventilated front seats, wireless charging and the Co-Pilot360 suite of driver assistance technology. Also, the model range has been simplified to three trims for the standard wheelbase and two trims for the long wheelbase. See the 2020 Lincoln Navigator models for sale near you
If you have the money, the Black Label's uniquely stylish interior themes make it the most desirable trim by far. Otherwise, there's nothing wrong with opting for the Standard trim given its adaptive suspension and generous standard technology. Adaptive cruise control, a huge sunroof and those Perfect Position seats make the Reserve trim pretty tempting as well. Find a Lincoln Navigator for sale

2020 Ford Expedition - The 2020 Expedition is also relatively new and offers the same interior space with a bit more towing capacity. However, it has less power and a less luxurious interior.
2020 Infiniti QX80 - The Navigator is still the overall superior package, but the new QX80 is also a considerably cheaper luxury SUV.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class - The latest GLS may not have the Navigator's ultimate space or towing capability, but it's far better than you'd expect given that it's a crossover. Its high-lux cabin is the only competition that can top the Lincoln.
Used Land Rover Range Rover - The old Navigator would've made this comparison ridiculous, but that's not the case with the new one. The high-style Range Rover (albeit a cheaper used one) is a worthy alternative to the Navigator.
