2018 Lincoln Navigator first view

While the 2018 Navigator certainly has an imposing presence, Lincoln should be admired for resisting any temptation to overdo the glitziness. The ethos behind this all-new full-size SUV is summed up by Kumar Galhotra, brand President, who said, “Quiet luxury is both a look and a feeling.”

Indeed, as far as attracting customers is concerned, the Navigator’s interior ambience is probably more important than the external styling. Consequently, that particular aspect clearly received lots of attention from Lincoln’s engineers and designers.

All of the ‘touch points’ have been given a premium texture, for example. In addition, cabin noise (perhaps a true indicator of luxury) has been minimised thanks to various measures such as the use of laminated side glass.

The cabin has six seats arranged over three rows. Those for the driver and front passenger are heated and cooled, plus they have a massage function.

Naturally, there’s a plethora of technology. As well as a 12” configurable instrument cluster and a Sync3 infotainment system, available features include a head-up display, 360° camera monitoring, a Revel Ultima audio player with twenty speakers and 10” entertainment screens for rear-seat occupants.

Connectivity is taken care of by a wireless charging facility, six USB ports, four 12v outlets, a 110v socket and a ten-device Wi-Fi hotspot.

Like the previous model, power is provided by a 3.5 litre V6 EcoBoost turbocharged gasoline engine. However, output has been increased to around 450 horsepower (about 335 kW) and the automatic transmission now boasts ten speeds.

Production of the 2018 Lincoln Navigator is due to begin this summer. Prices have yet to be announced.
