The creators of the Lincoln Navigator have stepped up their game with the new 2009 model. Improving the fuel economy to 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, the Navigator was designed to contend with the rising standards for gas consumption while not surrendering the level of luxury buyers crave.
The improvements come from a combination of architectural changes and systems engineering enhancements, including unique software to regulate gas consumption by using automatic gas shut-off systems. These changes put Navigator at the head of the full-size luxury SUV market in fuel economy.
The SUV also comes with more standard features to maintain the luxury image of Lincoln like a rear view camera, E85-capable V-8 engine, SYNC, and a 14-speaker THX II-Certified audio system with Sirius satellite radio. It also features an available elite package with further features like a next generation navigation system and a rear camera. The elite package also includes different options for the car's appearance like a new grille and different color options.
