2018 Lincoln Navigator Review, Release Date, Price – There is a doubt that the Navigator is the star of the Lincoln brand’s lineup. It doesn’t have the Continental value or the sales numbers of the MKC, but it comes of the newly redesigned full-size Navigator SUV.
Credit comes from a new exterior design that maintains the overall shape of the Navigator while still giving it a fresh look. The grille also mimics the Continental style, which is an enhancement of the current “tooth” chrome Navigator row. The 2018 Lincoln Navigator front end now looks more cohesive and finished well, which is not surprising because the last version has a face lift that never looks right.
Just as with a redesigned exterior, the 2018 Lincoln Navigator interior makes it stand out. It’s very spacious as you might expect, even in the standard size version (there’s an expanded L model with additional cargo space) there’s enough space for six adults to sit comfortably.
In front, the driver and passenger get the same 30-way power adjustable seats that standard in the Continental. In the second row, there is captain chairs or a three-person bench to increases the passenger capacity to seven. The second-row captain’s chairs shift fore and back and tilt forward to make third-row access easy. An optional center console can be added which includes audio control and storage. There are additional climate controls as well, but they are on the back of the front console.
Things you will not see in this Navigator is chaos. There is a large touchscreen interface, several buttons, switches and knobs on the dashboard. The Lincoln signature transmission button has been integrated in such a way that makes it easy to reach. There are several controls for climate and radio systems in the center console, and it does not look very complicated. The instrument panel is wide, reconfigured with a lot customization features, but the screen is default for the most basic information. For utilities, there is ample storage space on the center console and inside it. There is a feeling of spaciousness from the driver’s seat that makes some competitors deficient.
