Redesign First Glimpse:
At a quick first glance, one would surely feel that he is seeing a familiar face which resembles that of Ford Expedition. If that happens, rest assured because you are on the right track. The 2018 Lincoln Navigator is nothing but a remodeled version of Ford’s popular SUV which comes with the touch of luxury from Lincoln like leather trimmed seats, Lincoln’s signature grille design, sound-proof cabin and much more.
2018 Lincoln Navigator – Engine and Power
Normally the trend is that, that SUVs come powered with V8, especially if they are high priced. But 2018 Lincoln Navigator has a twist in the tale. It comes with a smaller V6 engine. It is being thought that this has mainly been done in order to cut out the weight of the vehicle which amount to nearly 300 pounds. This change has not only reduced weight but also reduced fuel consumption besides improving performance.
Specifically, under the hood, we will see a 3.5 liter V6 which really sounds very small in a realm of V8s. But the lower number of cylinders does not necessarily mean lower amount of power. This 3.5 liter V6 can score a massive 380 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque thanks to the direct injection and two turbo chargers for each set of three cylinders while Lexus LX’s 5.7 liter V8 can manage 383 hp.
As for mileage, 2018 Lincoln Navigator has 15/20 mpg for city/highways when running on the AWD system. If transmission is two-wheel drive system, an increase of 2 mpg in both figures is inevitable leading to 17/22 mpg on city/highways.

Although this luxury SUV has some bugs on its design the price range will certainly put it in the game. The main competitors of Navigator will be some very powerful and luxurious names.
