Lincoln Navigator
2018
Lincoln Navigator 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 Base 4-door SUV 4WD Automatic
Redesigned for 2018, the Navigator builds upon its Ford Expedition sibling with more luxury and showmanship. The cabin of the new Navigator is thoroughly modern, elegant, and expensive looking--a stark contrast to the dated design of the outgoing model. Laminated front and side glass should help cut down on the excessive wind noise that plagued the previous Navigator. Designed with big, technology-laden families in mind, the three-row interior features numerous power ports and seating configurations that can accommodate up to eight passengers by using a second-row bench seat. The twin-turbo V6 is estimated to produce 450 hp, much more spritely than the last-generation model. A new 10-speed automatic transmission replaces the previous six-speed. Rear-drive is standard, with four-wheel drive being optional. The new Navigator goes on sale in fall 2017.

2017
Lincoln Navigator 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 Base 4-door SUV 4WD Automatic
This more luxurious version of the Ford Expedition is neither as quiet nor as plush as its GM competitors, but it offers a much more comfortable third-row seat and is more reliable than GM's offerings. The 3.5-liter turbo V6 delivers smoother, more effortless power delivery than the old V8 that it replaced, and it returned 15 mpg in our testing. Handling is ungainly but secure. The Navigator rides comfortably, but wind noise is excessive. The interior looks dated, and there is no hiding the Navigator's pickup-truck roots. Both regular- and long-wheelbase versions are available. The motorized running boards help access to the tall cabin. Sync 3 has replaced the much-maligned MyLincoln Touch infotainment system.

2015 Redesign Year
Lincoln Navigator 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Others
A freshening in the 2015 Navigator brought a turbocharged six-cylinder in place of the V8. However, fuel economy increased by only two mpg. Unfortunately, the update didn't include advanced crash-avoidance systems such as forward-collision warning. In this upscale class, such equipment should be readily available, if not a standard feature. The top-shelf Reserve adds 22-inch wheels, Lincoln Drive Control adjustable suspension, and upgraded interior leather and wood. The Navigator's cabin is spacious with room for eight and a third row that's usable even for adults. A long-wheelbase version adds even more room.

2007 Redesign Year
Lincoln Navigator 2014 Trim Shown: 2014 Base
In 2007, the Navigator was freshened, receiving a six-speed automatic transmission. The power-operated third-row seat folds flat into the floor, and the Navigator L is 15 inches longer, bringing significantly more cargo room. Sill, the Navigator never lets you forget you're driving a truck-based SUV with balky handling, a hard-working engine, and long braking distances. A rear-view camera is standard.

Lincoln Navigator 2006 Trim Shown: 2006 Sport Utility
The first full-size American luxury SUV, the Navigator offers leather and wood interior trim, seating for eight, and a selectable 4WD system that can be left permanently engaged. The cabin is quiet and both rows of rear seats are comfortable and spacious for three adults - unusual with any SUV. The 2003 redesign improved ride and handling.

Lincoln Navigator 2002 Trim Shown: 2002 Sport Utility
The Navigator is similar to the Ford Expedition. The big Lincoln came swathed in luxury items, such as leather and wood interior trim. It also had second-row seating that featured two individual seats with a large console between them. The Navigator's selectable four-wheel-drive system can be left permanently engaged. It handled soundly in our tests but drank a lot of fuel. Climbing in and out takes agility, and parking and maneuvering around town can be a challenge.
