Unsurpassed luxury; high technology feature list; towing and hauling capability; roomy seating
A new Monochrome Appearance Package is new for 2009, and there are several other appealing new features. Sirius Travel Link, a subscription-based information service that's integrated with the navigation system, is now available, Front Park Assist, a capless fueling system, rain-sensing wipers, heated second-row seats and a rear-view camera system are all now on the standard-equipment list. The Sync system, which allows a voice-activated hands-free interface with cellphones, PDAs and music players is also new for 2009.
The Lincoln Navigator is sold in just two models -- Lincoln Navigator and Lincoln Navigator L -- and both of them are offered with a choice of rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Features and powertrains between the two models are similar, but the Lincoln Navigator L is about 15 inches longer than the standard-length Lincoln Navigator.
Both Lincoln Navigator models are powered by a 300-horsepower, 5.4-liter V8 engine, hooked up to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. Even though the Lincoln Navigator can top a 6000-pound curb weight, the powertrain has plenty of power to move the big SUV with authority. The engine's 365 pound-feet of torque brings strong trailer-towing capability, with a rating of up to 8700 pounds. Fuel economy is about as expected for a vehicle of this size and weight, at 14 mpg city, 20 mpg highway for the 2-wheel drive model.
An extensive list of safety features on the Lincoln Navigator includes the Advance Trac with RSC stability control system, which is designed to prevent situations that could lead to a rollover, plus seat-mounted side airbags in front, Safety Canopy side curtain bags that cover all three rows, and knee bolsters for the front passenger.
The Lincoln Navigator boasts a very high seating position, and power-retractable running boards aid entry and exit. Both versions of the Lincoln Navigator have three rows of seating, and can accommodate a total of seven or eight depending on the configuration. Front seats are very ample and adjust for a very wide range of occupants. The third row folds down easily, especially with the power-folding feature. With the second and third rows folded, cargo space expands to a cavernous 128.2 cubic feet in the extended L version. Second-row seats are split 40/20/40, while the third row is split 60/40 to reach the best combination of passengers and cargo.
The Lincoln Navigator is closely related to the Ford Expedition but offers a showier appearance inside and out. It also offers many luxury and high-tech options, which appeal to those looking for a luxurious, tow-friendly SUV that can also haul a large family in top comfort. The Lincoln Navigator also gets gas mileage that's similar to smaller luxury vehicles. The Lincoln Navigator L provides the most passenger space, with an easier-to-reach third row and additional cargo space in back.
