Lincoln Navigator has “Longer” List of Reasons to Buy

It’s June 21st… and Planet Lincoln on I-45 in Spring, Texas is celebrating the first day of summer. It’s the longest day of the year and an ideal time to debut the extended-length Navigator, Lincoln’s longest, most luxurious and spacious SUV.

This 2018 Navigator is nearly a foot longer than the regular model and features increased cargo capacity*and a newly designed below-the-floor storage area behind the third row. In addition, the second-row SUV door is larger, which allows for easier entry and exit access.

This longer luxury SUV is the definitive summer (or anytime) 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 Black Label: Destination

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

Destination takes its inspiration from items such as vintage luggage and hearkens 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.

Popularity Grows

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 our ultimate expression of design and personal service,” he said. “It offers an upgraded vehicle that’s appealing to many clients.
