2018 Lincoln Navigator is a bold “Continental SUV”

Lincoln has revealed its next taste of American Luxury in the shape of the 2018 Navigator, a full-size SUV that doesn't stint on chrome. Unveiled today at the New York International Auto Show 2017, the 2018 Navigator borrows heavily from the Navigator Concept shown off last year, though drops some of the more eye-catching details of that show car. Nonetheless, this isn't an SUV you'll miss on the road.

2017 Lincoln Continental AWD Reserve Review: American Cheese

2017 Lincoln Continental AWD Reserve Review: American Cheese

The 2017 Lincoln Continental had a strong start: indeed, few auto-show cars capture the spirit of their predecessors - and the attention of the buying public - like the 2015 Continental Concept did. Unapologetic in its lavishly-chromed exterior and purple shag-pile cabin, it was far from the milquetoast sedans that had ill-borne the Continental name up until their demise in the early '00s. Instead, it summoned memories of icons from the fifties and sixties, a conspicuous and distinctive play on the "American Luxury" slogan of the brand.

2017 Lincoln Continental First Drive: How to reboot an icon

Five minutes into driving the 2017 Lincoln Continental, a Mercedes-Benz C300 pulled up alongside me at the lights. “That’s a beautiful car!” the middle-aged driver called to me across the gap, to the barely-disguised pleasure of the Lincoln exec in the passenger seat. With less than 24 hours in Los Angeles to get to grips with the new Continental, I was attempting to multitask and squeeze in not only experiencing the car but figuring out what exactly had prompted the company to resurrect the such a storied nameplate now.

Want to be a luxury brand these days? Better get in line.

Devil in the Details: Up close with Lincoln’s Continental Concept

Devil in the Details: Up close with Lincoln’s Continental Concept

When you're resurrecting a name most associated with pampered land-yachts of the 60s and 70s, you can either fight it or - as Lincoln has with the new Continental Concept - embrace it, shag pile and all. A vision in navy blue and chrome, the meaty sedan previews, so the Lincoln Motor Company says, next year's production Continental, undoubtedly shedding some of the more outlandish features in favor of commercial viability. That'll be a shame, though, since as I discovered at the New York Auto Show today, what the Continental Concept excels at is detailing.

Lincoln Continental Concept quietly sneaks in luxury

While others make a great noise about their latest, greatest, and most luxurious, Lincoln is of the opposite mindset. It believes that luxury isn't loud, obnoxious, or in your face but one that is quietly just that: luxurious. That is the statement and the gamble that the car maker is willing to make with the return of the Lincoln Continental, not as a final version but as a concept preview of what is to come. Somewhat ironically, due to the name's history, the revelation is causing some noise in the automobile world.
