The Navigator differentiates itself from its Ford Expedition sibling by piling on the luxury touches on this almost $90,000 behemoth. This hulking SUV can accommodate up to eight people, although it’s so large it’s probably overkill for most buyers -- unless they need to tow upwards of four tons. While the Navigator pampers occupants with power everything and a rich interior ambience, there are some deficiencies that detract from a great experience.
A 3.5-liter V6 turbo makes a healthy 411 horsepower on regular fuel, and it’s mated to a mostly smooth 10-speed automatic transmission. (Lincoln says the engine makes 450 hp when premium fuel is used.) That abundant power scooted our four-wheel-drive Navigator to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds. Its 16 mpg overall is on par with similar large SUVs, but that's nothing to write home about.
