    2018 Lincoln Navigator Reviews

    this all-new 2018 Lincoln Navigator is also very good. It's distinctive, capable, and competent in ways that will stand up well in the upper echelon of the SUV hierarchy. And we'll get this out of the way now: it's far superior to its primary competitor, the Cadillac Escalade.

    ...

    The Black Labels look and feel special, making the nearly $100,000 price tag for a Navigator seem far more justified than the rather laughable, similarly priced Escalade. However, the same can be said for lesser, cheaper versions. Perhaps the Navigator lacks the refinement of a Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class or a Range Rover – there's still a bit too much noise along with the aforementioned ride – but given its space, performance, style and enormous features list, this is a Lincoln flagship that can finally compete with the big boys.

    The 2018 Lincoln Navigator has turned a page. It’s no longer an also-ran. Leaping from the back of the segment to the front, it will undoubtedly be noticed by consumers and the competition. With it coming so far, you can’t help but root for it to go the next step, too, and really knock the other guys back on their heels. Regardless, it doesn’t detract from what Lincoln has accomplished. The new Navigator isn’t just light years better than the old one. It’s also a serious contender for class leader, and that’s no small feat.

    Quite possibly the worst looking vehicle ever produced, the front is absolute garbage.

    Wow, they did their homework! JDN - you reading all this?

    And I like the interior, much better than that bag of discongrouos parts that make up the overdone Continental. I'm not crazy over the exterior, but I'm sure not everyone likes the Escalade exterior either (which I like)....

    Pretty good reviews so far. Good job Lincoln! Now the next Escalade has to be great as Lincoln has set the bar pretty high (especially interior wise)

    Yeah, like this much more than the Continental. I am quite impressed. I am surprised and delighted at the attention to detail, I did not see that coming. The reviews seem to be very positive and agree with that thought.

    I'm glad Lincoln took it up a notch, this will force Cadillac to be better. As the Escalade had no real, direct competition they could get away with being ok (and I do like the look of the Escalade interior), but I do recognize that they could and should have done better for a $100,000+ vehicle. I do believe we have read the next gen will have independent rear suspension, am I correct?

    And I know Ford fans have accused us GM fans of being anti-Ford and ripping anything and everything Ford apart. Here I am saying they did a good job (just like I said for the Fusion and Mustang). Continental = joke in my eyes.

    Big jump. The front is boring and the sides are contrived, but it's far from the worst-looking vehicle ever produced or even ugly at all.

    The worst you can say is that it's tame and contrived outside.

    While I happen to like the Continental, I would agree the Navigator is far more well executed design-wise.

    Check out the Beluga Whale looking front end on the Infiniti QX80 and try that statement over again. The new front end design for Lincoln IMO looks better here than on other things even though I'm still not a fan. I'm glad they've stepped up their game here at Lincoln with this and I hope it forces Cadillac to make a better effort with the Escalade.

    Are you joking? This monstrosity makes the Pontiac Aztec look decent. The wheels are atrocious, the grill is comical even by Ford standards, and the headlights don't even lineup with the bodyline. Only the most dyed in the wool Ford apologist would say this thing looks anything other than hideous. It's a hot mess.

    It could stand to look more truckish and less like a tall station wagon.

    For me this and the infiniti is a complete oh no on looks. The Lexus LX is average on looks with the rest of the lineup in this class looks pretty good for the most part.
