Lincoln Navigator is a full-size luxury
SUV with room for well-heeled families and the muscle to haul their toys. Significantly refreshed last year, the Navigator received much-needed interior and exterior updates, plus a new turbocharged V6 engine that does more with less. The Navigator can tow up to 9,000 pounds and is available in two lengths. While its technology improves this year with the easier-to-use Sync 3 infotainment system, the Navigator still lags competitors such as the
Cadillac Escalade and Mercedes-Benz GL in other key technology and safety aspects. Unlike the Navigator, those rivals boast automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, radar-based cruise control, and even have the capability to massage the front-seat occupants.
For 2016, the Lincoln Navigator receives the Sync 3 infotainment system. Based around an 8-inch touch screen, this latest version of the Ford/Lincoln communications, entertainment and navigation unit is easier to see and operate.
2015 sees the Lincoln Navigator receive a refreshed exterior design and a new interior with premium leather and wood trim. The old 5.4-liter V8 is replaced with a new 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, and a new continuously variable dampening suspension allows drivers a choice of three settings.
