Finally, An Update to the Standard Luxury SUV
Here’s the 2018 Lincoln Navigator in All Its Massive Glory
The current Navigator is, in terms of vehicle lifespans, a relic. It’s been around for a while and it’s become a bit dull. Knowing this, Lincoln completely remedied the situation: the new Navigator utilizes the brand’s new design language — classic callbacks with a reserved modern flair — and is, in a word, huge.
The grille emblem is at least nine inches tall (gone are the days of the hood ornament, sadly). The twin-turbo V6 pumps out 450 horsepower. It’s a full-size SUV that looks even bigger thanks to its bold shape. It’s big on tech, too, which is far and away the most important part of automobiles these days: six USB charging ports and four 12-volt outlets throughout, with buttons galore to move the seats in up to 30 different directions; rear-seat entertainment that can be streamed from Android devices or directly from other media; trailer back-up assist, 360-degree cameras… the list goes on.
Absent are the gullwing doors and “concertina” steps from the concept, and understandably so. We’re eager to drive one and see how it stacks up to the competition.
