First 2018 Navigator Reviews

Automobile Magazine just post the first 2018 Navigator review, and give us mixed results. Low score in the exterior review and high scores for the interior and powerplant. I think that , taking into consideration that american auto journalism are biased against Ford/Lincoln, is a good result.

Re: First 2018 Navigator review

Motor Trend, as usual, just published at the same time as Automobile Magazine their review. In this case, is far more nice than Automobile... They love the interior, the powerplant and love not so much the exterior.

"some of the criticisms seem especially sharp, it’s because expectations were so high and the delivery was so well-executed in most regards. 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."

Re: First 2018 Navigator review

Most of the reviews appear to be really fair. The biggest complaint seems to be the ride handling.

" And we'll get this out of the way now: it's far superior to its primary competitor, the Cadillac Escalade. "

Re: Navigator First Drive Review

Also love this, but it goes without saying.....

"Quite simply, this is the finest interior Lincoln has created in a half-century"

Congrats Lincoln! This makes me very excited for any all-new or heavily raised products coming up. Go Lincoln Go!

It seems the disappointment in ride is less that its bad and more that is not better?? motortrend states that the ride is among best in class but proceeds to say its shuddery. I believe the biggest issue is more the tires, it probably feels like the tires are over inflated and certain pavement creases and cracks are "felt" more readily, adding to that 'nervousness' feeling. Honestly, lowering the air pressure in the tire a bit probably remedies the ride complaints
