2018 Lincoln Navigator: sleek, spacious design with tech

If you’re looking for a full-size SUV why get cheated? Buy the 2018 Lincoln Navigator 4X4 Reserve.

It’s big. It’s bad. And it’s proud of being both.

The Navigator’s luxurious and spacious interior provides first-class seating for up to seven passengers. Not just the passenger and driver — but the second- and third-row passengers too. Nobody gets cheated.

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.

The all-new Navigator is a foot longer than the regular model. The second-row door is larger, allowing for easy entry and exit. And the leg and headroom in the third row are just as good as the second.

And thanks to best-in-class cargo volume, there’s still plenty of room behind the seats, including a below-floor storage compartment to stow valuables. The interior layout is clean and uncluttered with a simple, soothing ambience.

“Quiet luxury is both a look and a feeling,” says Kumar Galhotra, president, The Lincoln Motor Company. “The all-new Navigator embodies both. The sleek styling, spacious interior and technology are all designed to make each trip effortless.”

Navigator is powered by a twin-turbo, 3.5-liter, V6 engine mated to a 10-speed transmission. The combination generates 450 horsepower and provides smooth power whenever you need it, with plenty left over for towing toys. I managed almost 20 miles per gallon in combination of city/highway driving.

Standard SYNC3 with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility enables passengers to manage audio, phone, navigation and more from the vehicle touch screen or steering-wheel-mounted controls. Second-row passengers have their own audio and climate control, while third-row seats feature power recline capability.

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.

Best of all is the Revel Ultima audio system with 20 speakers. The system transforms the cabin into a personal theater with three distinct listening modes — stereo, audience and on-stage.

If you place a higher premium on technology than comfort — no worries.

Trailer-backup assist automatically steers the vehicle to turn a trailer the desired amount. A 360-degree camera and enhanced park assist reduces stress from parallel and perpendicular parking. And adaptive cruise control automatically slows the Navigator in stop-and-go traffic — resuming speed when traffic allows.

And, if you’re not into the passing scenery, an available rear-seat entertainment system allows passengers to stream content wirelessly with an Android device to one of the 10-inch adjustable screens mounted on the rear of the front seats.
