The size of the Lincoln Navigator is something that can't be overlooked. Its sheer size, luxury appointments, and performance strength often attract our friends and neighbors around Mechanicsville, Ashland, and Richmond, VA, to the SUV.

Sometimes, even the interior can't fit all your belongings. When that's the case, you can rely on the impressive 2022 Lincoln Navigator towing capacity. The towing will vary depending on the SUV's equipment, which we'll discuss in more detail in this review.

If you want to experience the strength of the Lincoln Navigator yourself, our Richmond Lincoln team can get you behind the wheel!


Due to its large size, the 2022 Lincoln Navigator needs an equally large engine. When you do attach a trailer, however, the need for power grows, which is why the 2022 model of the famed SUV features a twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine. With this V6, the Lincoln Navigator produces up to:

  • 440 horsepower
  • 510 lb-ft of torque

Mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift®, this SUV effectively shifts from one gear to the next.  

So, how much can this powerhouse of an SUV tow? Well, for the Lincoln Navigator, the maximum towing capacity reaches 8,700 pounds with the proper equipment. With the Lincoln Navigator and a 4x2 drivetrain, reaching this maximum is possible. If you go with the 4x4 drivetrain, the towing capacity slightly lowers to 8,300 pounds.

Also, you can choose the Lincoln Navigator L, which stretches the wheelbase of the SUV from 122.5 inches to 131.6 inches. In this configuration, the maximum towing capacity reaches 8,400 pounds with a 4x2 drivetrain and 8,100 pounds with a 4x4 drivetrain when properly equipped.

Helpful Towing Technology

The Lincoln Navigator offers a few available features to help make towing a bit easier. Some of these features are part of the Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ 2.0 Towing Package.

As a part of this package, the towing system equips your navigation with:

  • Trailer Reverse Guidance
  • Trailer Backup Assist
  • Pro-Trailer Hitch Assist 2.0

See where you're moving your trailer when backing up and let your Lincoln Navigator aid in attaching your trailer.


With your family or friends comfortably seated in the Lincoln Navigator and a trailer hooked up to the back, you can still rely on a versatile trunk for other storage needs.

If you choose the standard Lincoln Navigator, here's how the cargo room measures behind each row:

  • 103.3 cubic feet of cargo room behind the first row
  • 63.6 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row
  • 20.9 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third row

With this kind of spacious trunk, easily pack up groceries, backpacks, and more! For larger cargo, choose the Lincoln Navigator L and its expansive interior.

With all seats lowered, you'll have 120.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the first row. If your second row is occupied, the Lincoln Navigator L has 79.6 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row. The lowest amount of cargo space in the Lincoln Navigator L is 36 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third row.


With a twin-turbocharged engine and various wheelbases to consider, the Lincoln Navigator proves to be a reliable, sturdy towing machine. At Richmond Lincoln, we'll happily set you up with a test drive to experience its raw power in person.
