The previous generation of the Lincoln Navigator had been in production for a decade, making it a prime candidate for getting a total makeover. Experts and enthusiasts alike knew a fresh take on the nameplate was in the works when a Navigator Concept made its way to the New York Auto Show stage last year. For the 2018 model year, however, Lincoln debuted the next-generation Lincoln Navigator at this year’s New York event.
Lincoln dropped a teaser of the new Navigator ahead of the show on April 10th, with a shadowy image depicting the 2018 model’s darkened silhouette illuminated by brilliant headlights. The auto show reveal showed off even more goodies: a flashy new chrome grille and cool new wheels. From the puddle lamp that illuminates the ground under the front doors as the driver approaches to the totally revamped interior, the 2018 Lincoln Navigator was clearly designed with next-level luxury in mind.
A host of new and innovative technology will be available in the next-generation Lincoln Navigator, including a Wi-Fi hotspot that can support 10 devices and the SYNC 3 system. A new twin-turbo V6 will deliver 450 HP when mated to Ford’s 10-speed transmission.
We at Mountaineer Lincoln are very excited for when the production 2018 Navigator comes to our dealer lot.
