DEARBORN, Mich., June 08, 2018 – The all-new 2018 Lincoln Navigator earns five stars, the highest possible government crash rating, from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program.

“We want our Lincoln clients to feel at ease and confident behind the wheel for an ultimately enjoyable driving experience,” said Andrew Kernahan, Lincoln Navigator chief engineer. “Our innovative technology allows us to enhance that experience while also improving the vehicle’s overall safety.”

Navigator’s lightweight aluminum body, fully boxed steel frame, dual pyrotechnic pretensioners in front seat belts and driver-assist technologies all contribute to it achieving the top rating.

These include Blind Spot Information System, a lane keeping system, enhanced active park assist, auto high beams, 360-degree camera and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability.
