We knew the 2018 Lincoln Navigator—the reboot of the brand’s full-size SUV with the Midas touch—would be a big deal. It’s even bigger than that.
This week, Lincoln announced a new Destination trim, which is part of its upmarket “Black Label” series, and a long-wheelbase option that adds about a foot and includes wider rear doors and more interior storage.
Taking cues from vintage luggage and the heydays of luxury air travel, according to Lincoln, the Destination series will sport red leather with diamond-pattern stitching on the seats and laser-engraved wood in the cabin.
You’ll need to pay $94,900 for the Destination, which is the same price for fellow Black Label trim levels Chalet and Yacht Club. Yes, like travel in the 1950s, the Swiss Alps, or any form of yachting, the Black Label series Navigators are fairly expensive, especially when you consider that the base price for Lincoln’s full-size SUV is

Players arriving for a tournament this week at Muirfield Village might notice a framed picture of Tiger Woods with a resplendent smile and bright red shirt. He’s posed there with the trophy, an image that embodies the excitement he once brought to golf.
A far different photo emerged Monday, this one from the Palm Beach County jail in Florida after Woods was arrested on a DUI charge.
Sullen, lifeless eyes.
Thinning hair mussed at the top. Scraggly facial hair. A white T-shirt.
In another stunning development for a player who became one of the dominant figures in sports, Woods was arrested on suspicion of DUI and spent nearly four hours in jail before he was released on his own recognizance.
Woods said an “unexpected reaction” to prescription medicine – not alcohol – was the reason for his arrest. He said he understands the severity of the incident and takes full
The Lexus LX 570 exists because the Land Cruiser does. If that world-patrolling, UN-peacekeeping Toyota hadn’t built up decades of global goodwill, there’d be no reason to plaster it with leather and wood and a big chromey grille, and sell it as a luxury truck. The heritage is real, and so is the upsell potential.
With all its lavish gear and top-drawer finishes, the LX still manages to hang on to most of the Land Cruiser’s off-road skill. We give it a 6.8 out of 10, with points scored for its comfort and capability. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
The LX wears its social-climber status on its sleeve, which on a car sits at the nose. The hourglass-shaped beak works better on smaller crossovers and sedans than it does here. Omit those details, and the biggest Lexus SUV’s credentials are on display: squared-off corners, big taillamps,

Tiger Woods attributed an “unexpected reaction” to prescription medicine for his arrest on a DUI charge that landed him in a Florida jail Monday for nearly four hours.
Woods, the 14-time major champion who had back surgery five weeks ago, was arrested on suspicion of DUI at about 3 a.m. Monday and taken to Palm Beach County jail. He was released on his own recognizance.
An arrest report might be available on Tuesday, Jupiter Police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said.
“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Woods said in
ST. DAVID, Maine — Madawaska police, Aroostook County Sheriff’s deputies and emergency services responded to two related automobile accidents on U.S. Route 1 late Saturday morning. Police are still investigating the accidents, and they are trying to determine why a man was driving in the wrong lane for several miles shortly before 11 a.m.
According to Lt. Jamie Pelletier of the Madawaska Police Department, Douglas Hise, 49, of Caribou was driving a Cadillac Escalade northbound near the Grand Isle and Madawaska town line when he veered into and continued driving in the left southbound lane into oncoming traffic. Multiple cars avoided Hise by swerving into the opposite lane. Latrina Hazleton, 38, of Van Buren veered right, however, and tried to pass between Hise and the snowbank, Pelletier said.
Hise struck the rear driver’s side of Hazleton’s GMC Suburban, spinning her vehicle around and back into the roadway. Hazleton struck the opposite snowbank,
One of the last provinces for full-size SUVs are its ability to haul, tow, drag, or lug myriad toys up and down interstates, from one campsite to the next.
After all, car-based seven-seaters can offer the same interior space with better fuel efficiency and a better ride.
Eager to hold the high ground, Ford’s new Expedition can lay claim to the superlative of best-in-class towing potential among full-sizers. It took the crown from itself.
The company announced Thursday that the new 2018 Ford Expedition can be equipped to haul up to 9,300 pounds attached to its stern. Ford measured the capability using the widely accepted—and more stringent—J2807 SAE standard.
The new Expedition will come equipped with a 3.5-liter turbocharged V-6, which Ford calls EcoBoost, and a 10-speed automatic as standard. Last year’s version was equipped with the same engine, but a 6-speed automatic instead, and was rated to tow up to 9,200 pounds
CARS.COM — The next frontier for in-car connectivity is Wi-Fi mobile hot spots that allow you to wirelessly connect multiple devices while the car is hurtling down the road. In these cars, SUVs and trucks, a tablet or laptop — not just a smartphone — can remotely connect to office networks, play movies and TV shows, access hundreds of online radio stations and tap into other internet fare while the car is rolling down the road.
