Re: 2018 lincoln fleet cards

It is curious that the leg room specifications seem to be different on the Lincoln Navigator/L vs. the Ford Expedition/Max:

Lincoln Navigator/L vs. Ford Expedition/Max

1st Row Leg Room (max): 43.7 vs. 41.0
2nd Row Leg Room (max): 41.5 vs. 41.5/42.6
3rd Row Leg Room (max): 36.1 vs. 36.1

Yeah, it is curious/strange cause both seems to have the same exterior dimensions.
Also, I find a bit odd that in some interior dimensions the new Navi has worse numbers (Maybe because the new L model is shorter than before)

Re: 2018 lincoln fleet cards

They do make significant changes to interior packaging and trim even if the metal stampings are probably the same.

Re: 2018 lincoln fleet cards

Yea if i recall, the navigator usually always have lower dimensions due to different designs and additional options. The avg person probably wont feel the hlf in im space between them, but they will def feel them across the competition.

Re: 2018 lincoln fleet cards

regarding leg dimensions, obviously the metal does not change, so any difference would probably have to do with seat dimensions.

Re: 2018 lincoln fleet cards

So they have Rhapsody Blue and now "Blue Diamond" - wonder how close those are to the current Midnight Sapphire Blue??

imho, Lincoln really needs something like that...

...I'm spacing & can't remember or find the name of the lightER [BL] blue paint
but
found:
"Yacht Club, the signature theme which combines Coastal Blue Venetian and Blue Bay Alpine leather"

...EDIT^^^^ Found IT
"Crystal Blue" which a weird google-Link that went to Lincoln@facebook says is a [Chroma]

Re: 2018 lincoln fleet cards

Lincoln has really taken the recent blue fashion trends to an extreme unlike any other automaker. It's a little like Ford's Green/Beige era from the early 90's and Chrysler's mid 90's obsession with purples. It's been awhile since we saw a specific color era so clearly defined like this.

I have to say if it wasn't for the dashboard, the Expedition is still more attractive to me than the Navigator. I definitely prefer the smoother horizontal fascia and more intricate headlights than the exaggerated blockiness of the Navigator, but there is just no beating the Navigator's interior, especially since the Expedition is using such an outdated dashboard from the F-Series.
