This week, Ford’s Lincoln luxury brand pulled the sheet off its completely-redesigned, 2018 Navigator full-size SUV – the first such redesign for the model since the 2007 model year.
Pity; we were just getting used to the 2015 refresh.
The overall shape and effect of the new Lincoln Navigator is remarkably different from the outgoing model – i.e. it’s far less straight and square, with a sloping roofline and an overall sense of dynamism. Gone from the new SUV is the old, familiar split-wing grille, replaced instead with one shaped like that on the all-new Continental and the revamped, 2017 MKZ. And of course, we’d be remiss not to mention the 2018 Lincoln Navigator’s rather striking set of directional, “saw-blade” wheels, which are sure to prove polarizing.
But at this juncture, we want to hear from you. What do you think of the new luxury SUV’s curb appeal? Is the all-new, 2018 Lincoln Navigator a home run for the designers? Or did Lincoln manage to make a decent-enough-looking SUV worse? Weigh-in with the poll embedded below, and drop us a line in the comments section if you feel especially strongly.
