2012 Lincoln Navigator
2012 Lincoln Navigator
For technical sophistication and capability in a big American SUV, it's tough to beat the Lincoln Navigator. The Navigator's 310-hp, 5.4-liter V-8 produces significant power and torque, and the six-speed automatic offers smoothness and functionality. A stiff frame, an independent suspension, and large, vented disc brakes make the Navigator -- available in both regular and extended-length (L) forms -- surprisingly good to drive. There are an abundance of power-operated conveniences, such as a stowable third-row seat, adjustable pedals, and power-deployed running boards. The interior is nicely designed, and excellent audio and voice-activated navigation systems are offered, including Sync AppLink. The exterior has a slightly affected-looking nose and somehow manages to be both dignified and monstrous at the same time. There are a host of standard convenience and safety features, including a power liftgate, heated and cooled front seats, a power-folding third row, a rearview camera system, trailer-sway control, roll stability control, Sync voice-activated communication, integrated blind-spot mirrors, and programmable MyKey. There's almost nothing you can't haul with the Lincoln Navigator. Take along the family, some cargo, and a boat, and jam to the 600-watt THX-certified stereo as you cruise on down the road.
