Rumors are circulating about Cadillac developing a pickup truck for release at the end of 2024. Because of this, it is believed that Lincoln may also be working on a luxury pickup truck. Sources suggest that this vehicle will likely be built on the Navigator chassis but with 2 rows of seating instead of 3 and a bed at the back of the truck. It is expected that this upcoming pickup will come with multiple engine options. That should include a naturally aspirated V8, a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6, and a hybrid variant. This truck is said to offer decent towing and payload capacities, along with some off-road capabilities. On top of its performance specs, this vehicle should also be crafted with luxurious interior materials and equipped with various safety features.
If rumors are true, it will be the only full-size truck in Lincoln’s lineup. But this is not the only one in their history. In 2002, Lincoln introduced the Blackwood, but it was discounted because of low sales figures in 2004. Lincoln tried again in 2006 with Mark LT, but it was also discounted in 2008 for the same reason as Blackwood. So if Cadilac introduces its own luxurious pickup, Lincoln will probably follow with Navigator Pickup.

The 2024 Lincoln Navigator Pickup, as we mentioned before, should come with multiple powertrain options. Since it will be based on the Navigator SUV, it should have the same engine.

We expect the Navigator Pickup to have 17 mpg in the city and around 23 mpg on the highway. For the acceleration, we also going to see similar numbers. And that will be around 5 seconds.
There will be no big changes inside. The biggest difference will be in the number of seating positions. The pickup version of the Navigator will just come with two rows of seating instead of three.

2024 Lincoln Navigator Pickup Price and Release Date
We expect to see the Lincoln Navigator Pickup in Q4 of 2023 or Q1 of 2024. With a starting price of around $95.000, it will not be a cheap truck, but with a powerful engine, luxurious interior, and well-known robust-looking exterior, we are sure it will justify its price. For the Black Label trim, we expect the price to go up to $120.000.
There is no doubt Lincoln will offer us a powerful, luxurious truck with plenty of safety and comfort features, but we need to wait to see the official statement from the company to see if these rumors are true.
Also, we need to see what Cadical will have to offer in this competitive, luxurious truck segment.
