Overview of the Lincoln Navigator

Learn about the Lincoln Navigator

Summary

Lincoln is known for its high-performance luxury vehicles, and this full-size SUV comes well recommended. The Lincoln Navigator has a family-sized cabin and a 3.5 L twin turbo-charged engine available as either a V6 or a V8. Due to its powerful engine, earlier models have been known to be quite noisy, though this issue was fixed with the new 2019 model. Details like a wood and leather interior trim and chrome grill contribute to an upscale feel that should satisfy most drivers. However, some customers have said that the look comes up short when compared directly to its competitors.

Safety

All Lincoln Navigators include four-wheel anti-lock brakes and traction control to reduce skidding on slippery surfaces. The vehicle comes with front driver and passenger, front side-body, and front and back head airbags. In addition, models from 2008 include a rollover sensor, which applies the brakes when it detects the car leaning over too much on one side.

Newer models from 2017 come standard with an impressive array of features, such as front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, which help you reverse and change lanes safely by alerting you of approaching vehicles

Interior

The interior features included in the Lincoln Navigator are mostly the same across all generations and models. Electric windows and air conditioning are included in all trims. Multi-level heating for all six seats is a nice touch, especially for backseat passengers. As a rule, the look and feel of the Lincoln Navigator's cabin is luxurious. However, some passengers have found that the occasional use of low quality plastics detracts somewhat. We recommend exploring the vehicle's interior before buying to ensure it meets your expectations. 

Technology

Trims as far back as 2003 are equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system with GPS navigation. Drivers with children might choose a model with the available rear-seat video entertainment system. Lincoln has focused heavily on the vehicle's sound system, and most models come with an impressive setup. The 2013 model, for example, features a 14-speaker THX sound system as standard. Additional available technologies on models from around 2010 include:

  • Rear-facing camera to assist with parking 
  • 14-speaker surround-sound system with a six-CD changer
  • Satellite radio
  • Bluetooth and Apple/Android integration to easily connect your smartphone

Space

Cabin and cargo space in the Lincoln Navigator are equally generous. The vehicle seats seven passengers and features impressive front- and second-row legroom and headroom. The second-row seats also feature one-touch tilt-and-slide functionality, to increase third-row legroom. Both the second and third row fold down flat, expanding cargo space from around 20 cubic feet to close to 100 cubic feet. 

Comfort

Independent front and rear suspension and available all-wheel drive means the Lincoln Navigator can take on whatever you throw at it. Even older models have an impressive towing capacity of up to 9,000 lbs. with the right upgrades. So, whether you are pulling a load of wood or a motorhome, your ride in the Lincoln Navigator should be just as smooth.
