“It delivers on space, comfort and functionality while driving like a smaller SUV…”

The 2015 Lincoln Navigator is a people mover designed for those that like to arrive in style.

Looks:

The Lincoln Navigator makes a statement wherever you take it. The bold split grille with the integrated front bumper and blended in driving lights brings style to the front of this truck. The body lines help split up the large side body panels. A large LED brake light stretches across the power lift gate and wraps around each corner giving it an interesting look while making it very visible when the brakes are applied. Another feature I found very cool was the welcome mat. When you press the unlock button on the remote the Lincoln logo illuminates the ground.

In The Cab:

As you open the door to climb in the cabin, power deployable running boards to help you get in greet you. Don’t stand too close though because they come out right at ankle height! Inside you can choose the optional Trevino leather seats, leather door trim and console accented by Ziricote wood inlays. The dash is hand warped and stitched giving this cabin a very upscale look. The front bucket seats can be heated or cooled. The second and third rows fold flat with the touch of a button. Both models carry eight passengers. SYNC with My Lincoln Touch is a command centre that control everything from entertainment to climate. Speaking of entertainment, the sound system is a THX 11 certified 5.1 surround system that features 14 speakers and 600 watts of power.

Safety first:

Front seat mounted side airbags, safety canopy system with side curtain airbags and rollover sensor. Advance-Trac with roll stability, tire pressure monitoring system, and trailer sway control are just some of the standard features on the Navigator.

Roadworthy:

This large SUV is perfect for the whole family. It delivers on space, comfort and functionality while driving like a smaller SUV. Very little, if any, body roll. Steering is magnificent and easy while responsive to changing lanes and finding a tight parking space.

Verdict:

You may not drive it to be cool, but you can’t help looking cool driving down the road.

Power:

This vehicle comes standard with a twin turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine that puts out 380 horsepower and 460 lb ft of torque. The transmission is a six speed select shift. 4.10 gear ratio. Towing is made easy with the transmission tow/haul mode, which helps keep you from gaining too much speed when towing downhill. The engine maintains its power band while towing up a hill keeping the speed and momentum constant.
