One of the many features that make the upcoming Cadillac Celestiq stand out from the crowd is the coast-to-coast display panel, which serves to provide passengers with an immersive infotainment experience. More Cadillac vehicles, like the full-size Escalade, are receiving a similar treatment to help leapfrog the competition in terms of display screen size. Now, it appears as though the 2025 Lincoln Navigator is set to feature a pillar-to-pillar display.
GM Authority sister publication, Ford Authority, has learned from sources familiar to the matter that the 2025 Navigator – a direct rival to the Cadillac Escalade – is to boast a coast-to-coast infotainment screen to meet the competition from General Motors. Similar to the enormous screen found in the refreshed 2024 Lincoln Nautilus, the Navigator display will be slightly larger and curved at the ends.
It’s worth noting that the Blue Oval has introduced a coast-to-coast screen to a few Chinese-bound Ford and Lincoln vehicles, including the Zephyr sedan.
As of the time of this writing, it’s unclear what the exact dimensions of the pillar-to-pillar infotainment screen in the 2024 Cadillac Escalade will be. However, if it’s anything like the Cadillac Celestiq’s – which is 55 inches wide and includes highlights like 8K pixel density and Digital Blinds Active Privacy – it will certainly be game changing for the full-size luxury SUV.
In regard to other updates for the Escalade’s upcoming mid-cycle refresh, the exterior is expected to feature revisions to the front and rear fascia, as well as possibly new taillight clusters. Gigantic 24-inch wheel option will be on offer, along with a new roof-mounted communications fin.
Under the hood, the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax is expected to be replaced by the 3.0L I6 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax engine, while the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine will remain as the standard powerplant. The GM ten-speed automatic transmission will direct power to the ground via the rear wheels as standard, or all four as an option.
