Large & Luxurious: 2018 Lincoln Navigator SUV

Lincoln has introduced the 2018 Navigator, an all-new full-size SUV that combines modern luxury with advanced technology – elevating family travel to first class. The all-new Navigator is equipped with wireless charging and standard Wi-Fi that keeps everyone connected. Advanced technology allows the driver to effortlessly adjust the vehicle to make driving easier or more enjoyable – in any weather or terrain.

Available in Premier, Select, Reserve and Black Label trim levels, power for the large Lincoln SUV is generated by a twin-turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. Torque is communicated through the wheels via an all-new ten-speed automatic transmission.

Inside the passenger cabin spaciousness comes in all three rows, including storage in each to keep the cabin clean and organized. The interior layout is clean and uncluttered, with a simple, soothing ambience.

Navigator is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. A 12-inch configurable instrument cluster allows drivers to choose the information they want displayed. An available Head-Up Display can show selected information on the windshield instead of the instrument cluster. This helps drivers keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. It’s also easy to adjust to changing conditions. With the turn of a dial, the driver can adapt the Navigator to changing road or weather, and enjoy a smooth, confident ride. Staying connected is easy in the all-new Navigator with six USB ports, four 12-volt power outlets and a 110-volt plug. An available wireless phone charger in the first-row center console media bin eliminates tangled cords.

The all-new Navigator’s advanced cargo management system offers an adjustable shelf behind the rear seats that allows clients to create storage customized to their needs. Even with the vehicle parked on an incline, the feature ensures groceries won’t roll out when the liftgate is opened.

Even when the all-new Navigator is fully packed, each occupant can sit in comfort. The driver and front-seat passenger enjoy Perfect Position Seats, which offer massage, heating and cooling functionality, and can be adjusted up to 30 different ways.
