Lincoln reveals the extended-lenght version of the Navigator

Article by Christian A., on June 21, 2017

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.

Longest Day, Longest Navigator: Roomiest Addition to Lincoln Lineup Debuts on Solstice

Wednesday marks the first day of summer, the longest day of the year and the perfect time to debut the extended-length Navigator, Lincoln’s longest, most luxurious and spacious SUV.

This all-new Navigator, nearly a foot longer than the regular model, features increased cargo capacity*and is specially designed with a below-floor storage compartment behind the third row. In addition, the second-row door is larger, allowing for easier entry and exit.

It’s the definitive vehicle for getaways with family and friends – everyone travels in comfort and nothing is left behind. Both versions of the new Navigator go on sale this fall.

The longer Navigator provides best-in-class cargo volume behind the second-row seats. Also, the extra 15 cubic feet of storage behind the third row means while every passenger enjoys a comfortable ride, bags still fit and bulky cargo isn’t a hassle.

The roomier Lincoln Navigator comes standard with Lincoln’s signature personalized customer service, including Pickup and Delivery.

With the service, a Lincoln Service Valet picks up a client’s vehicle for any service need, at any location, provides the client with a complimentary Lincoln loaner vehicle, and returns the freshly washed vehicle to the client once service is complete.

Lincoln introduces Destination

With the new extended-length Navigator, Lincoln is unveiling Destination, a new Black Label interior theme that celebrates the art of travel.

Destination takes its inspiration from vintage luggage, hearkening back to a time when travel was rich with excitement and intrigue. Mahogany Red Venetian leather with an intricate diamond weave on the seats is complemented by khaya wood laser-etched appliqués that lightly echo the pattern.

“There’s so much fine detailing throughout this interior,” said David Woodhouse, Lincoln design director. “While it’s monochromatic, it is rich, warm and inviting through the use of color and textures. The look is truly indulgent and luxurious.”

Navigator comes in two other Lincoln Black Label interior themes, as well – Chalet and Yacht Club.

Lincoln Black Label gaining in popularity

Lincoln Black Label offers the ultimate expression of Lincoln style and substance, providing clients personal service and a host of exclusive membership privileges. These range from premium service coverage to personalized vehicle shopping with dedicated personnel at home, in the showroom or online.

Every Lincoln Black Label Navigator comes standard with the best Lincoln has to offer in features and technology, including its award-winning Perfect Position Seats and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. This system uses advanced radar and cameras to provide a collision warning to the driver. If the driver does not respond in time, it can automatically apply vehicle brakes. The system is designed to reduce the severity of and, in some cases, eliminate frontal collisions, including those involving pedestrians.

Lincoln Black Label continues to grow in popularity, according to Doug Hange, Lincoln Black Label brand and operations manager. “It’s the ultimate in both design and service,” he said. “It offers an upgraded vehicle that’s appealing to many clients. And the member privileges open up a whole level of options.”

Lincoln Black Label members receive lifetime complimentary car washes, a complimentary culinary experience – with enhancements such as a champagne or wine toast, appetizers and a personalized menu. Membership allows them to qualify for the Avis® President’s Club – an exclusive, invitation-only program. Perks of the club include complimentary rentals in select locations and premiere savings.
