During the day, the enormous panoramic moonroof fills the passenger compartment with natural light while, at night, the soft glow of LEDs creates an elegant setting. Also at night, the speed-dependent adaptive lighting provided far better visibility than most vehicles can hope for.

Both Navis had a seemingly endless list of standard equipment including built-in Wi-Fi, a 360° outside camera, 30-way seats, excellent massage, and very comfortable second-row captain’s seats. The third row is quite spacious with room for three.

The Navigator comes with one of the best implementations of Apple CarPlay we’ve seen. Ford just seems to know how to do it right in its current Sync 3 infotainment platform. Second-row passengers have separate audio and climate controls, further adding to passenger comfort.


While the 2018 Lincoln Navigator isn’t necessarily for everyone, it provides an extremely refined driving experience and obscene amounts of interior room combined with an elegant and somewhat understated cabin design. For that, we award the 2018 the designation “King of the Hill.”
