Interior:Ebony, Premium LTHR HTD/Ventilated Low-Back Bucket Seats
New for 2018
Everything. The 2018 Lincoln Navigator gets its first major makeover in a decade. Thanks to a new chassis and aluminum body panels, the Navigator loses about 200 pounds over the previous model. In addition to the Continental-influenced exterior styling, updates include a revised drivetrain, more infotainment options, and quieter interior as well as more luxurious interior appointments.
The full-size three-row 2018 Lincoln Navigator is the premium brand’s flagship model and sits above the compact MKC and midsize two-row MKX and three-row MKT crossovers as well as the full-size Continental and midsize MKZ sedans.
Power for the 2018 Lincoln Navigator comes from a second-generation twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 making an estimated 450 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. The engine also features a new stop/start system. A 10-speed automatic backs the engine and sends power to the all-wheel-drive system with an electronically locking rear differential.
Luxury appointments include front heated and ventilated 30-way power seats with massage function and memory settings, French-stitched leather seats in all three rows, second-row climate control and tilting second- and third-row seats.
Lincoln isolated the Navigator’s interior from the outside world by adding laminated windows, a noise-canceling system, redesigned climate ducts, and new tires. Infotainment features include a 20-speaker Revel Ultima audio system, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Navigator also features second-row audio controls. An available rear entertainment system features a pair of 10.0-inch screens on the back of the front headrests as well as SD, HDMI, and quick-charging 2.5-amp USB ports (there are six USB ports overall). The system also supports wireless streaming to each screen via Android phones.
Notable safety driver assistance features include a head-up display, Trailer Backup Assist, a 360-degree camera system, and adaptive cruise control.
The key fob in the driver’s possession will adjust up to 80 vehicle settings upon start up.
