The 2018 Lincoln Navigator shares the same platform with the smaller Ford Expedition SUV. Lincoln Navigator Concept was presented at the New York International Auto Show, which offered a general overview of the U554 Navigator. However, the concept’s gull-shaped doors and star-inspired steps were only introduced as part of an exhibition of the production model. This provoked a provocative comment from Cars.com when he echoed a response from publisher Aaron Bragman, who correctly predicted that Lincoln would keep the same characteristics without the wings and steps of the seagull.
2018 Lincoln Navigator Features
The Lincoln Navigator would not be a re-packaged Ford Expedition like previous generations, although it is lagging behind the MKX in terms of sales but ahead of the MKT, but hopes to make it more competitive in the luxury SUV segment as it prepares for the Cadillac Escalade, the Infiniti QX80 and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which have already launched new generations in 2013 or 2014, and which will be designed by Lincoln’s new design team who also designed the new MKZ 2013. This would be completely new and would introduce the Ecoboost 3.5, further improvements and interior and exterior performance.
The 2018 Navigator and 2018 Navigator L have retained the same exterior design as the Expedition instead of the previously reconditioned Ford. However, it now featured an updated grille with rear tailgate lights that look like the Dodge Durango. The EcoBoost V6 engine is the only engine available for the 2015 model year and produces 380 horsepower and 460 lb-ft.
The exterior included HID headlights with LED traffic lights and LED tail lights. The twenty-inch wheels are standard, replacing the 18-inch wheels, while a reserve package features 22-inch wheels. The dashboard panels feature MyLincoln Touch with Sync as standard and controlled by an eight-inch touch screen on the dashboard, and houses two twin 4.2-inch screens that flank a central speedometer, lining up with the rest Lincoln models. The start button has become standard, as well as a passive input and a backup camera. Blind spot monitoring has been added as an optional feature.
2018 Lincoln Navigator Engine
On April 12, 2017, Lincoln introduced the officially-styled fourth-generation browser at the 2017 New York Auto Show. This version, like fourth-generation Expedition, is designed to be lighter, more spacious and more luxurious than the previous generation, losing 200 pounds with a new aluminum body and featuring a new 3.5-liter V6 engine coupled with an automatic system. 10 speed transmission. The specification now has a power rating of 450 hp (336 kW) at 5000 rpm, 510 lb-ft (691 N·m) at 3500 rpm (corresponds to the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor). The 12-inch configurable instrument cluster and the front display screen are among the new offerings.
2018 Lincoln Navigator MSRP
The browser will continue to offer the standard version and the long version L with the same level settings as the previous generation. Lincoln has set a MSRP of $ 73,000 (US) for the standard size and $ 84,000 (US) for the L version.
The 2018 Navigator family also introduced the “Black Label” luxury series, with three new optional embellishments, Destination, Chalet and Yacht Club. All three will be the most expensive browsers in the fourth generation, with a base MSRP price starting at $ 94,000 (US) for the standard size and about $ 98,100 (US) for the 2018 Lincoln Navigator L version.
