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.
With no surprise, the elongated version of the Lincoln Navigator is going to be priced more than the regular version. The 2018 Navigator starts at $72,055 MSRP for the entry level Premiere trim, while the cheapest you could get the Extended variant for is $80,750 for the Select L model. But note that it is not just size that you are paying extra for, as the Extended variant comes with a set of 22-inch wheels as standard, compared to the 20-inch wheels that come with the regular version.
For the range topping Black Label L, be ready to spend at least $96,905, and if you want an even more comfortable cabin, that will cost you an easy $100,000 by adding options like the rear seat entertainment system, the 30-way adjustable driver and passenger seats with massaging functions.
Furthermore, Lincoln offers a new Destination interior theme just for the range topping model - featuring Mahogany Red Venetian leather upholstery finished with a fancy diamond weave, and khaya wood laser-etched appliqués. The lower trims of the extended Navigator, on the other hand, can choose from Chalet and Yacht Club interior themes.
The longer SUV will make its debut on the eve of the longest day of the year, also known as summer solstice. And both models should start selling in the US this fall.
