Hassett Automotive

The team at Hassett Lincoln is proud to announce that the Lincoln Navigator was just named the 2018 North American Truck of the year. A well-deserved award indeed, as the Navigator has seen some serious updates over recent years.

Lincoln has truly exceeded expectations, creating a luxury SUV that is able to tow 8,700lbs and still retain the comfort and drivability that the brand is known for. With a 3.5L twin-turbocharged V-6 producing 450hp and a whopping 510ft-lb there is certainly no shortage of power in the Navigator. Every bit of that 450hp is easily accessible via the quick-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain alone would have been enough to get Lincoln the title of 2018 Truck of the Year, but lucky for us, the engine was just the beginning.

The Interior

The Navigator has become known for its spacious interior. Now equipped with a center control panel and touch screen, this Lincoln has all the tech one could hope for. You can plug in your Android or iPhone for Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. The transmission is designed as easy accessible press down keys, without the gear shift to take up space. The Navigator comes with soft leather seating and a chrome-wood finish for the interior trim.

The technology put into this car is something of an extraordinary kind. 30-way power adjustments for the driver and passenger bring a high-end standard of comfort the Navigator. The back seat comes with adjustable temperature controls, and vents for better air circulation around the inside of the car to keep everyone comfortable.

The digital dash monitors your speed, which recognizes speed limits, operation of adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance, time, temperature and miles to empty. What more could you ask for? The back-seat passengers have entertainment built in to the head rests of the driver & passenger seats, with their own personal built in screens, including Lincoln Play, Wifi and personal HDMI and USB ports.

Reclining the third-row seats by hand to make more cargo room can be a hassle. Never bother with that again with the power-reclining third row in the new Lincoln Navigator 2018. The cargo space is roughly 80 cu. ft. to fit all of those groceries, suit cases or party favors for your next big event!

The Exterior

The outside appearance shows off with a large metallic grill for the front, light-up emblem, LED lights, trim, back-sweeping headlights, which taper into the Navigator’s beltline.

Puddle lights, when you open it’s doors are great when getting in and out of the car in the evening. Entering the Navigator has never been easier with power-actuated running boards and illuminated door handles. Plus, a panoramic moon roof, allows your guests in the back can enjoy the fresh breeze, and beautiful sight.

The Drive

Power is always a tap away while cruising, with no noticeable lag from the turbochargers. The new 10-speed automatic shifts quickly and seamlessly and the CCD adaptive shocks do a phenomenal job of turning those impacts into soft bumps before they reach the cabin.
