2018 Lincoln Navigator Concept, Price, Release Date
It is about more than a decade for the ongoing Navigator to keep its life and to give you high-quality car to ride. It is a luxury SUV with much utility. However, we have to say that the current model is quite old and it should get some replacement which is still in the process. Right now, we have seen the 2018 Lincoln Navigator concept that was introduced a few months ago. This luxury SUV comes with more different look compared to the previous model, but we glad that some improvements are added for its important areas.
As other concept cars, you cannot expect that the production version will be the same as the concept. Lincoln mentioned that some features they showcased would be carried over to the production model but they did not explain about the features. The ongoing reports indicated that the extended wheelbase model is also added. The design is impressive. From the concept, we can find that it has a unique door-opening system. It has a two-door design that can open up to show two rows of the seats as well as a massive set of motorized stairs. For the EL version, rumors mentioned that it would get suicide doors to make it more attractive. 2018 Lincoln Navigator goes with electric running boards as the standard and they do not go with motorized stairs. We glad that the car will get aluminum and high-strength steel which can make it able to have 10,000 pounds of towing capacity for either RWD or AWD.
The futuristic interior concept will be completed with finest features and accessories although everything is still camouflaged. If we take a close look, it is safe to say that it has similar treatment as the ongoing model with the same dashboard and the highly modular electric front seats. The standard will be massage system, climate control, triple-zone automatic and all common features inside.
2018 Lincoln Navigator Engine
Under it bonnet, the new 2018 Lincoln Navigator likely will get a new 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that is the same as before and it can produce about 450 hp as well as more than 450 lb-ft of torque power. It is the same basic engine as the Raptor. The transmission will be ten-speed automatic to complete rear or all-wheel drive system.
2018 Lincoln Navigator is predicted to have a little more expensive price compared to the previous model. You may need to spend more than $60,000 to get the base version. The release date may happen at the end of 2017 or the beginning of 2018.
