Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Navigator delivers excellent ride comfort and impressive handling capability for its size.

Substantial nosedive and abundant body motions are inevitable when stopping abruptly. But otherwise, Lincoln’s fully independent suspension yields a pleasantly smooth ride. Credit for ride comfort goes largely to Lincoln’s available adaptive dampers, available in expensive option packages for rear-wheel-drive models. The adaptive suspension is standard with four-wheel drive.

Few models of this size and weight handle so adeptly, maneuvering with a significant level of precision even when the road turns curvy. Electric power steering reduces the amount of steering-wheel motion needed for parking or lane-changing, helping to make this biggie feel smaller than its dimensions suggest.

Twin-turbo V6 power propels the big SUV with gusto, helping to make the Lincoln Navigator a better-driving vehicle than before, as well as a more efficient one. Turbo lag is not an issue, and the V6 unravels its power over a broad range of engine speeds, making it impressively quick. Despite weight that hovers around three tons, 0-60 mph acceleration can be achieved in less than 6 seconds, a startling figure in this vehicle league. Lincoln’s 6-speed automatic shifts smoothly, without annoying indecision.

As expected, gas mileage wins no prizes, EPA-rated with rear-drive at 15/21 mpg City/Highway, or 17 mpg Combined. Four-wheel drive drops the highway estimate to 20 mpg. The Lincoln Navigator L is EPA-rated at 15/20 mpg City/Highway with rear-drive, and 15/19 mpg with four-wheel drive. In the realm of three-row vehicles, Lincoln Navigator falls near the bottom of the fuel-economy scale.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Updated and freshened numerous times over the years, Lincoln’s Lincoln Navigator maintains a clean, well-proportioned appearance in its current form. Slapping a bundle of flashy chrome detailing atop a relatively reserved-looking body yields an appealing result.

To many eyes, today’s Lincoln Navigator represents the best possible melding of vintage luxury design cues with a wholly traditional profile. Underneath, the Lincoln Navigator is truck-based, a close cousin to the Ford Expedition, with nearly identical dimensions.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

As expected, interior space is vast, whether the Lincoln Navigator is standard-length or extended-wheelbase. Accommodations in both the second and third row rank ahead of Lincoln Navigator’s competitors, in space as well as seating comfort. Lincoln Navigator cabins used to be on the plain side, but nowadays they’re lushly trimmed, with a sophisticated edge.

Front and second-row occupants can expect splendid seating, well-shaped for adults, with ample space in each direction. Headroom beats Cadillac’s Escalade. Bucket seats up front are sufficiently wide, but softly cushioned and helpfully supportive. The second row also contains bucket seats, for six-passenger capacity.

Only in the third row will adults feel cramped. Entering and leaving the third row is a little easier in a Lincoln Navigator L than in the standard-length version. Making use of power-folding capability allows the third row to be stowed away, swiftly and easily.

Although the power tailgate is handy, the Lincoln Navigator’s vast cargo floor is on the high side. For shorter drivers, loading luggage can be a challenge.

Up front, the dual-binnacle dashboard is wrapped in leather, highlighted by twin-stitched seams. A large touchscreen sits high on the center stack, but knobs and buttons haven’t disappeared. In fact, they’re present throughout the dashboard and steering wheel. All told, despite soft detail work, the Lincoln Navigator still comes across as a tad trucklike. Standard SYNC3 infotainment operates using touch, voice, or steering-wheel controls.

Sound-deadening materials and noise-suppression techniques make the cabin nearly silent at highway speeds. Only a hint of exhaust sound can be heard.


New Car Test Drive

The Lincoln Navigator might be considered a relative bargain in the large-SUV class, when considering its lavish list of standard features, when compared with Cadillac Escalades and Range Rovers.
