Read more about 2018 Lincoln Navigator Redefines Large Luxury SUVs at AutoGuide.comThe all-new full-size SUV aims to elevate family travel to first class.
Introduced at the 2017 New York Auto Show, the 2018 Lincoln Navigator focuses on combining modern luxury with advanced technology. The exterior design isn’t a far departure from the Navigator Concept that debuted at last year’s New York Auto Show, but as expected, the wild doors didn’t make it to production. But what is surprising is the twin-turbo V6 engine under the hood that is expected to produce 450 horsepower while paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. And compared to its predecessor, the new Navigator weighs nearly 200 pounds less, thanks to high-strength aluminum used on its body.
Lincoln says additional weight savings were reinvested in features such as towing capability and quietness, like laminated front and side glass that contributes to the quietest Navigator cabin ever. The SUV also brings a new Lincoln technology called speed-dependent adaptive lighting, which provides a wider spread of light at lower speeds for increase visibility and as the vehicle accelerates, the beam of light narrows to help eliminate the glare off signs or other distractions.
