The all-new, 2018 Lincoln Navigator luxury SUV, unveiled earlier this year at the New York International Auto Show, will start at $73,250 including destination, Lincoln says. That’s nearly $10k more than the 2017 model’s $64,710 base price (before incentives), with much of that extra cash likely covering the 2018 edition’s new aluminum-alloy body and rich array of tech-savvy features.
At the far end of the range is the 2018 Lincoln Navigator L Black Label, where “L” stands for “long-wheelbase”. That model, which features Lincoln’s top-of-the-line Black Label trim, is approximately a foot longer than the standard luxury SUV, delivering 10 inches of added legroom and some 15 cubic feet of extra cargo capacity. It was unveiled just yesterday, wearing a price tag of $98,100 and up.
Here’s the full pricing breakdown:

Power and torque figures for the 2018 Lincoln Navigator’s sole powerplant option – a twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter V6 – have not yet been announced, although the engine is expected to put out around 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft in this application. Rear-wheel drive will be standard on Premiere and Select models, with AWD available as a $2,655 option; the Reserve and Black Label will ship with AWD as standard.
The all-new, 2018 Lincoln Navigator luxury SUV goes on sale in the US this fall, and will try to take the fight to GM’s venerable Cadillac Escalade. Whether or not it succeeds will largely rest on whether it’s managed to differentiate itself sufficiently from the mechanically- and structurally-similar Ford Expedition, and whether it offers the sort of opulence suggested by its heavy price tag. It’s too soon to tell just yet, but the early indicators look strong.
