Automotive Editor -

The all-new third-generation Lincoln Navigator replaces its ten-year old predecessor and arrives with a thundering a 450-horsepower twin-turbo V6, a raft of technological improvements, and one of the finest cabins to ever grace an American vehicle.

What's New for 2018

The 2018 Lincoln Navigator is a clean-sheet redesign.

Choosing Your Lincoln Navigator

There’s only one engine available in the Navigator, a 3.5-liter 450-hp, twin-turbo V6 packing 510 pound-feet of torque. Connected to a 10-speed transmission, the V6 returns an EPA-estimated 16 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway, and 19 mpg combined (adding the optional all-wheel-drive system drops the highway figure by a point and the combined rating by two points). Rear-wheel drive is standard on Premiere and Select models, while a four-wheel-drive system is optional – the Navigator's two higher-end trims come with four-wheel-drive.

Based on the Ford Expedition, the 2018 Navigator boasts similarly impressive towing figures. It can hitch up and move up to 8,700 pounds with a short-wheelbase and two-wheel-drive, while the long-wheelbase and four-wheel-drive's maximum drops to 8,100 pounds. That second figure ties the long-wheelbase Escalade ESV, while the standard model is only capable of hauling 8,300 pounds.

To better compete with the biggest version of the Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln offers the Navigator Select, Reserve, and Black Label trims with a long-wheelbase body that adds nearly a foot to the overall length and boosting the cargo volume from a minimum of 19.3 cubic feet to to 34.3 cubic feet. Maximum cargo volume moves from 103.3 cubes to 120.2.

Premiere

Starting at $72,055, the Navigator Premiere is the base trim, but isn't exactly basic. It rides on 20-inch wheels, features LED headlights with LED running lights, and that big chrome grille hides aero-enhancing active grille shutters. A side-wind stabilization system helps keep the tall, slab-sided Navigator from reacting too severely to cross winds, while standard blind-spot monitoring and a self-cleaning reversing camera help keep the big SUV clear of obstacles.

The interior has leather-trimmed seats with heating and 10-way adjustability in front. A 14-speaker Revel audio system and Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system – with a 10-inch touchscreen – are also standard. Every Navigator comes with 4G LTE wifi capability, active noise control, and three-zone climate control, keeping even the fussiest passengers comfortable and occupied.

The only option for the Navigator Premiere is four-wheel drive, which adds $2,655 to the price tag.

Select

For a modest $4,000 over the price of the base trim, the Navigator Select adds a lot of features. Instead of 20-inch wheels, the Select gets standard 22s. In the cabin, a heated steering wheel and wireless charging pad add to the already impressive list of comfort features.

Optional extras focus mainly on safety and comfort features. A $2,640 Technology Package adds an automatic parking system, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, an impressive head-up display, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, and lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist. A panoramic sunroof is a $1,995 option. On the functional front, the $1,895 Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Package adds Ford's Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which makes the business of driving in reverse with a trailer a matter of simply twisting a knob. And in terms of borderline unnecessary items, Lincoln's excellent 30-way front seats add $1,500 to the price tag

Finally, the $1,995 Lincoln Play rear-seat entertainment system is a treat for second-row passengers. Not only does it add the usual DVD player and rear displays – a pair of 10-inch screens – but it brings in a wifi hotspot and the ability to watch live TV while on the go via the Slingbox app. Owners need a Sling streaming setup at home to enjoy this perk, but once that's in place, the Navigator becomes a stunning road-trip vehicle.

Reserve

This is the cheapest model available with four-wheel drive as standard, but the $80,705 Reserve’s brings more to the table, including 24-way heated and cooled front seats, and standard captain's chairs in the second row.

Like the Select, Reserve buyers can add the Technology Package, Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Package, Lincoln Play system, and panoramic sunroof for the same prices listed above. The 30-way seats are still available, and with a massaging function, but since their base is now a 24-way set of chairs, the price is a bit cheaper, at $1,250. A $995 Revel Ultima audio system scatters 20 speakers throughout the cabin.

Black Label

Priced from $93,205, every Black Label model offers the Technology, Heavy Duty Trailer Tow packages, and Revel Ultima audio system as standard, along with three distinct design themes: Chalet and Yacht Club models feature Venetian leather, whereas Destination has a mahogany theme from headliner to carpet mats.

The Black Label trim's only options are the Lincoln Play suite and the Revel Ultima audio system.

But buying a Black Label means more than just gaining access to a well-appointed vehicle – it's the price of membership in an exclusive club with plenty of perks. Black Label owners essentially never need to visit the dealer. Dealership employees handle every element of vehicle service, picking up and dropping off the Navigator at a location of the owner's choosing and even leaving a loaner while their vehicle is being serviced. That perk runs for the first four years of ownership and includes complimentary car washes and an annual detailing service. When Black Label owners travel, they can take advantage of complimentary vehicle loans at their destination airport for one week. There's also a concierge service, not unlike what some major credit card companies offer. These perks certainly soften the blow that comes from purchasing a $93,000 vehicle.

CarsDirect Tip

The Reserve and Black Label are fantastic vehicles, but not so good that we can ignore the value of the mid-range Select trim. Grab the Technology Package and 30-way seats and enjoy the good life for just over $84,000.
