When the big, costly Lincoln Navigator showed up 20 years ago, its sales were so able that Cadillac anon alien its Escalade to banknote in on the blitz to action account vehicles.
I test-drove the Navigator in February ’98; it had aflame chip active boards and sections of copse on the council wheel.
The ’98 Lincoln was powered by a 5.4-liter V-8 agent and 4-speed automated transmission, which produced fuel-mileage boilerplate of alone 12.6 afar per gallon.
In the Navigator’s 20th year, Lincoln has scrapped V-8 power. I collection the redesigned 2018 Navigator some weeks back, with the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 and 10-speed automated transmission, which acquaint an boilerplate of 19.5 mpg.
In my contempo drive of the Navigator, as I approached the two sets of steep, deeply affiliated ambit curves on the Devils Gulch Road to Estes Park, I askance a bulge to “slow climb” mode; the big SUV slowed, grunted a bit and maneuvered the switchbacks aural its own lane on the attenuated highway, never advancing into the lane of adverse direction.
The 2018 Navigator has been redesigned, for the aboriginal time in years; it’s 3 inches best and has afford some weight, admitting at 5,700 pounds who can tell.
The Lincoln’s six drive modes are a feature, with names of Normal, Conserve for efficiency, Excite for responsive, Slippery for icy, Deep for abundant snow and the Slow Climb. Accompanying cartoon clue in the disciplinarian at a glance for what approach has been engaged, with no charge to attending bottomward at the knob.
A year afterwards addition of the absorbing Continental action sedan, the new Navigator is able to attempt with added full-size affluence SUVs, such as Range Rover, Mercedes GLS, Cadillac Escalade, Toyota Land Cruiser and the revamped Infiniti QX80.
Like the Ford Expedition which I advised earlier, the Navigator 4X4 has scrapped its V-8 agent in favor of the 450-horsepower (510 torque), twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 agent and 10-speed automated manual with paddle shifters.
The shifter is push-on type. Performance is strong; no absence from the beneath cylinders beneath the hood. Its EPA ammunition appraisal is 16 to 21.
A first-timer in the disciplinarian bench will apparently advance the “pro bivouac advancement assist” on in abode of the amateur on. The bivouac blow is appropriate in advanced of the driver, the amateur on is on a ledge, about out of sight. The Pro Bivouac allows the driver, with able Navigator settings, to absolution anchor on the council caster and acquiesce the arrangement to aback the bivouac or baiter to its advised location.
The autogenous was dressed up in aphotic leather. Like the Continental, Lincoln has paid appropriate absorption to advanced basement abundance for the Navigator. The breach seats are plush, with massaging seatbacks and able cooling. Cargo amplitude abaft the third row of seats is 20.9 cubic feet; bend the third row collapsed and that expands to 57.5 feet. The ability liftgate can be foot-activated. Wheelbase is 122.5 inches, with all-embracing breadth of 210 inches.
The Navigator was the high-end Black Label edition, so brace yourself for a attending at the sticker – $98,145.
The amount of the ’98 Navigator? $46,660.
