Tag along with Edmunds Senior Writer Mark Takahashi as he gets behind the wheel of the all-new 2018 Lincoln Navigator. It follows the Continental sedan to market, strengthening Lincoln’s foothold in the premium luxury market.

The Navigator makes a strong styling statement with oversized proportions and a bold grille. The interior combines smart features with easy-to-use interfaces, along with sharp design and impeccable materials.

Mark spent quite a bit of time in the top-of-the-line Black Label trim, enhanced with 30-way power-adjustable seats and the Revel Ultima audio upgrade. Like all Navigators, it’s powered by a twin-turbo V6 that produces 450 horsepower. The price of admission rings in just shy of the $100,000 mark and he’s convinced it’s worth it.

At that size and price, it’s primary competitors are the Cadillac Escalade and Mercedes GLS-Class. Mark says he’d take the Navigator over both of them in a heartbeat.

      Why a 3rd row power recline but manual in the second row? No cooled second row, only heated? No power sunshades?

      I went to the dealership to look at this SUV. It is absolutely huge but appropriately sized to allow grown adults elbow room.
      I didn't care for the middle seating position in the third row as it was a tad hard also the belt buckle coming from the ceiling down was annoying.
      Getting out of the third row kids are going to have a blast! They get the jump! 😁 Yes I know there's step available but I did jump and it would be kid approved! (in my 49 year old mind).
      Was some of you might not be able to see in the video the burgundy seats have silver tinsel glitter type thread throughout the seating so the wifie will definitely like that. At least mine will. Haha.
      Unfortunately at $100,000 this is well above my paycheck.
      Having said that I give a round of applause to Lincoln. If this doesn't win some awards I'll be surprised.
      Well done engineers! Take a bow.👏

      Lincoln in the past 15 to 20 years has been very poor and unimpressive but lately with the new Continental and Navigator I am really impressed with the whole Ford Lincoln Brand in General.

      7 seated vehicles with no cargo room are a mystery. Unless your just headed to the mall or movies, how is this practical? Going to the airport for instance or a family trip. Rooftop maybe?

      Just got out of Austin Auto Show, and AFTER 3 hours (eat, my kid play & check every single brand that is more than 40), we can say that the latest 2018 Lincoln Navigator is the best SUV with 3rd Row seat in the planet.

      We checked ALL of them (Asian made, European, North American made, etc...).

      Their top of the line that's in the $100+k beats every single SUV with 3rd row seat, and the sound by REVEL is super awesome.

      IF u want SUV with 3rd row seat plus with the best seats (it's super comfortable, even the 3rd row seats), then this is it!

      MOST (if NOT all) people in the comment section, didn't see it yet in person, so IF you don't, shut the F up!

      Have a great day to y'all
