$5,000 discount is offered for trade-ins of Lincoln Navigator for 2018 Cadillac Escalade

The battle for dominance in the market for large, luxurious body-on-frame sports utility vehicles is already heating up even before Ford commences sales of its new Lincoln Navigator SUV. This comes as GM decided to offer a trade-in deal that sees $5,000 off a new Cadillac Escalade.

Ford is all set to begin sales of the new Navigator SUV sometime next week. It is a massive improvement over the current iteration. There is also a massive step-up in price, with the new Lincoln Navigator having a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $72,055. As a new generation vehicle that boasts of being a far cry from the current version, the Lincoln Navigator is attracting a lot of attention, and that could potentially translate to huge sales.

On the other hand, GM is offering the Cadillac Escalade for the 2018 model year. While it is not an outgoing model, the 2018 Cadillac Escalade hasn’t received major enhancements since the 2015 model year. Although the Cadillac Escalade is expected to remain a dominant force in its segment, its sales superiority is being challenged heavily by the new Lincoln Navigator. In short, GM will be having its hands full defending its position in the luxury SUV segment until it rolls out a new generation -- or even a major update -- of the Cadillac Escalade.

Ford will release Expedition and Lincoln Navigator hybrid SUVs in 2019

Most automakers are looking into electrifying their current models; that is, if they have not done so yet. But some manufacturers like Ford have offerings that are being overlooked, until recently. This is because the company finally announced that they will come out with at least four new hybrid vehicles by 2019, Ford reveled when asked by Automotive News. For the first time, they will be electrifying future crossovers and SUVs, unlike before where they just focused on hybrid sedans.

To be more specific, the company said that they will be developing a plug-in hybrid version of the Escape, and a hybrid version of the Expedition. Their upscale line Lincoln will also be following the eco-friendly trend with hybrid versions of the MKC and the Navigator - where the Expedition and Lincoln are scheduled for a 2019 release.

But that’s not all they have in mind as these hybrid SUVs will then be followed by a hybrid Mustang as well as the new F-150. We do not know which models will be released first, but we do know that all six models should be launched in the market by 2020. According to Automotive News, Ford invested around $4.5 billion to bring in 13 EVs and hybrids to the market.

Lincoln reveals the extended-lenght version of the Navigator

A lot of people would consider the 2018 Lincoln Navigator an SUV large enough to fit seven passengers comfortably, and still having a lot of cargo space. But not everybody has the same standards, and some may still find it small for some odd reason. Well, if you are one of those people, then worry no more. Ford's luxury marque just announced that they have prepared what they call an "extended" version of the luxury SUV.

To be more specific, the Extended-lenght Lincoln Navigator will be almost one foot longer than the regular version. That’s 30 centimeters longer, meaning that there will be even more space for the passengers.

The extended Navigator offers a segment-leading cargo volume behind the second row seats, which the company is indeed proud of. An additional 15 cubic feet of cargo has been added behind the third row seats. And as I have mentioned earlier, the longer the vehicle, the more legroom there will be for the passengers. That’s because of its wheelbase that has been extended by almost 10 inches (25.4 centimeters) more than the standard version. But the good news doesn't end there, this version also has elongated rear doors which makes getting in and out of the car easier.

2018 Lincoln Navigator officially unveiled at the New York Auto Show

For the past few months, several spy photos of Lincoln’s flagship SUV – the all-new 2018 Lincoln Navigator – have been surfacing, showing its basic shape and a couple of modifications including the removal of its coverings. Shape-wise, the 2018 Navigator has a striking similarity with the Navigator Concept’s gullwing (showcased during last year’s New York Auto Show).

Unfortunately for the said gullwing, it never made it to production, which isn’t really surprising since most enthusiasts have always known of its fate. The various spoilers that have surfaced before the 2018 Navigator’s debut has, quite frankly, subdued the excitement and hype for the updated SUV.

Now, for those who are still eager to learn more about Lincoln’s freshly revamped flagship SUV, sit back and relax as we give to you a quick run-through of what’s in store for you.

Lincoln Navigator Concept was a show-stopper at the 2016 New York Auto Show. It is the latest re-imagination of the first Navigator, which had jumpstarted the creation of the large luxury SUV segment in 1997.

However, this concept provides a glimpse of what Lincoln could offer for its SUV clients -- more space, better performance and better refinement.

The new Lincoln Navigator Concept was inspired luxury sailboats and yachts as evident from its modern lines and its Storm Blue exterior paint that mimics the grays and blues of sea and sky as well as from, custom gear and wardrobe management system and the teak finishes.

While executives at Lincoln say that the 2015 Navigator is a moderate refreshening, the full-sized luxury SUV is actually expected to retake the lead in a segment the brand pioneered in the 1990s but eventually lost to the Cadillac Escalade.

Lincoln is hoping that the 2015 Navigator would serve as a reminder that the brand is still one of the dominant names in the luxury car industry, preparing customers to the real deal after two or three years when Lincoln rolls out a redesigned Navigator.

While Lincoln executives won’t discuss future product plans, industry analysts expect the new Navigator to bear an aluminum body. Lincoln was credited with creating the full-size luxury truck-based SUV segment, rolling out the MY1997 Navigator in 1996.

Lincoln will launch in October its first large marketing campaign for the Navigator since 2007, after starting shipment of the 2015 version to dealers earlier this month. The luxury carmaker will commence showing the ads once it sees that dealers are well-stocked with the 2015 Navigator in late October.

Seeing high demand for full-size SUVs, Lincoln decided to update the Navigator – the vehicle’s first since the 2007 model year. Now, the updated Navigator is powered by Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, which provides up to 380 hp of power output and 460 pounds-feet of torque.

The engine’s fuel economy EPA-rated is at 16 mpg city, 22 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined. Lincoln has also endowed the new Navigator with the MyLincoln Touch infotainment system as well as the Lincoln Drive Control, which adjusts the ride according to road conditions using electronic sensors.

Lincoln introduced the 2015 Navigator back in January and the vehicle was seen as a bonus for brand’s dealers. Still, it appears that the life cycle of this model will be short as the company will redesign the Navigator and roll it out in the second half of 2016 as a 2017MY.

Just like the F-150, the Lincoln Navigator is expected to arrive with an aluminum body which means it will not only be lighter but also more fuel efficient. The 2015 Navigator made its debut with a new 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine that generates 380 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque.

The EcoBoost V6 replaces the old 5.4-liter V8 and it is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with Lincoln’s SelectShift. Regarding the design, the 2015 Navigator features the latest version of company’s split-wing grille, LED taillights and 20-inch machined aluminum wheels.

If you were looking for a full-size sport utility vehicle, you better take a look also at the 2015 Lincoln Navigator as the company announced that it will carry a price tag of $62,475, including destination and delivery charges. For those who don’t know it yet, the 2015 Lincoln Navigator comes as standard with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost that delivers 380 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The engine is bolted to a new six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The 2015 Navigator is available with the Lincoln Drive Control with a continuously controlled damping suspension to help provide a smoother ride, and electric power-assisted steering that helps deliver responsive handling.

As standard, 4WD models and a all models equipped with 22-inch wheels are offered with continuously controlled damping. Meanwhile, the 2015 Navigator 4x4 models come as standard with hill start assist and Hill Descent Control.

The oldest remaining nameplate at Lincoln is getting a new look. Lincoln has re-engineered the Navigator for the 2015 model. It will start building the Navigator in late summer and will begin to sell in early fall. Lincoln launched its reinvention plan in 2012, and brand executives promised four new vehicles by the end of 2016.

The carmaker has already unveiled two: the already available MKZ sedan and the MKC crossover due in the second quarter. Lincoln will launch a new vehicle in 2015 and another in 2016. Andrew Frick, group marketing manager of Lincoln, remarked that the 2015 Navigator is among the four new vehicles, which means it would be a bonus for Lincoln dealers who have craving for more offerings.

"This large utility, where we've been playing for so long, is a good place for us to invest," Frick said during the media unveiling. The Navigator features the latest version of Lincoln's split-wing grille design that was introduced in 2013 on the MKZ. The redesigned rear end now features LED taillights that extend its width, which is another signature element of the brand’s new design language.

Lincoln has finally introduced the all-new 2015 Navigator and as expected the car comes with a redesigned exterior, updated interior, more powerful engine and additional customer-focused technologies. Let’s start with the engines! Under the hood we find a new 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine rated at 370 hp and at least 430 lb-ft of torque, according to preliminary test data.

This new engine replaces the old 5.4-liter V8 and what’s more interesting is that it is expected to deliver best-in-class towing. Bolted to a six-speed automatic transmission with Lincoln’s SelectShift, the vehicle is available in both four-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive configurations.

As standard, the 2015 Navigator is offered with electric power-assisted steering, while the optional Lincoln Drive Control adds Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD), a suspension system that monitors multiple vehicle sensors and road conditions every two milliseconds and adjusts the suspension needs accordingly. 2015 Lincoln Navigator also offers driver-friendly Hill Start/Descent Assist.

The Lincoln Navigator SUV will continue to be available after the brand shakeup but this time, the new model will make use of EcoBoost V-6 power instead of the V-8, global Lincoln director Matt VanDyke confirmed to Motor Trend. However, the mechanically related Ford Expedition will still be offered with the V-8.

It’s expected that the next-generation Lincoln Navigator will get Ford’s 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6, with an output of 365 hp and 410 lb-ft. This is a considerable improvement over the present truck model’s 310 hp and 365 lb-ft. For now, the Navigator has the same weight as F-150, so it’s likely to also offer a zero to 60-mph acceleration time of about 6.5 seconds.

Its fuel efficiency is expected to slightly improve too. If the next Navigator weighs less, both aspects could still improve further. VanDyke said that Lincoln is going all-EcoBoost, so a V-8 is doubtful. It’s possible that Ford’s 302-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 and its 278 lb-ft of torque would be used as the base engine. For January and February 2013, sales of the Lincoln Navigator sales have fallen by 17.8%, to 1211 units.
