2018 Lincoln Navigator Interior
Inside the 2018 Lincoln Navigator, you will not find any resemblance with the current generation, and this is just amazing.
One of the things that you’ll immediately notice is that the car seat is a lot lower that you might expect. Plus, the center stack is not filled with a lot of buttons to make your life easier. Instead, you only have the HVAC vents, climate controls, and the infotainment screen.
In what concerns with the center console, this has more buttons but still, the design is very clear. While you’ll be able to find some premium leather finishes inside the cabin in the standard version, higher models come with wood inserts and real aluminum as well.
