Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Though gargantuan in dimensions, the Lincoln Navigator defies some typical big-SUV expectations. For instance, developers sought road behavior approaching that of a mature sedan.

Ride/handling qualities reach well past GM’s biggest SUVs, imparting a lighter feel. In the fully independent suspension, adaptive dampers can subdue most harsh road surfaces, despite the 22-inch wheels on most models.

Size isn’t as much of an obstacle as expected. Adaptive electronic steering delivers some light driver feedback, while coping with massive wheels and a turning circle that exceeds 40 feet. Lincoln has modified Ford’s terrain-management system to improve traction control.

Emitting a throbbing sensation, Lincoln’s version of the corporate twin-turbo V6 is more powerful than the Expedition’s, unleashing a bounty of low-end torque. Downshifts from the 10-speed automatic occur frequently, but are seldom bothersome. Paddle shifters and a tow/haul mode can be used.

Gas mileage has shrunk, despite the updated powertrain. The standard-wheelbase rear-drive Lincoln Navigator is EPA-rated at 16/23 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined. The longer-body Lincoln Navigator L alters that estimate to 16/22/18 mpg. With all-wheel drive, the Lincoln Navigator is EPA-rated at 16/21/18 mpg.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

While sharing its basic profile with the Ford Expedition, Lincoln’s exuberant SUV differs sharply in body styling. A tall front end conveys a sense of drama, far beyond the previous model. Hints of current Land Rovers can be seen in the no-pillar bodysides.

Large headlights sit alongside an inset mesh grille. Upper models get LEDs. Body creases and corners recall Lincolns from the company’s past. Large taillamps stretch across the rear, while swirled-design wheels impart their own dramatic aura. So do the long chromed fender vents.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Spacious and lavish, the Lincoln Navigator cabin approaches the spectacular. Glossy wood panels and a flurry of chrome trim attract the eye, while high-resolution display screens emphasize the practical.

Seating seven (eight with a second-row bench), the Lincoln Navigator promises luxurious comfort and an isolating experience. Thick sound-damping materials help keep the cabin quietly tranquil.

Separating the wide, wide horizontal dashboard is a console that looks almost like furniture. High-definition displays dazzle the senses. A 12-inch screen with an excellent interface substitutes for conventional gauges. The infotainment system is less intrusive than those in many luxury vehicles. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are standard.

Immense doors open wide for easy entry/exit. Power running boards also help.

Even the base model’s front seats are softly supportive, with just-right flexibility. Optional 30-way power seats provide exceptional comfort, with lower back and shoulder adjustments.

Second-row captain’s chairs should please larger passengers. Lower-end models can substitute a three-person bench that slides to ease third-row access. Six-foot-tall riders can fit into the third-row seats, enjoying a fair amount of legroom, though head space could be slightly limited.

With all seatbacks upright, cargo volume totals 19.3 cubic feet in the regular model, or 34.3 in the extended-length L version. Folding down second and third rows expands space to 103.3 or 120.2 cubic feet, respectively. A power-folding third-row seat and power tailgate are standard.


New Car Test Drive

The all-new Lincoln Navigator delivers supreme comfort and overall quality. Sumptuous interior materials and finishes fill the vast cabin. There is plentiful space for passengers, even more so in the longer Lincoln Navigator L versions. Driving the new-generation Lincoln Navigator feels like a special occasion, a trait that’s been absent from recent versions.
