Back in 2000,Lincoln Navigator is one of best jeep in Nigeria and popularly used by rich multi-millionaire families before other automobiles (Range Hover,Honda Pilot, ML GL, Land Hover,Land Cruiser and other Japanese SUV Jeeps.) But it’s seem there are lots of jeeps and people have different choice of cars they want to drive.
The Navigator is classy and sophisticated without going overboard. It takes the basic design and styling of the Ford Expedition up several notches. It’s not too pedestrian, like the Ford, but it won’t turn you into a showboat either.
It features a long wheelbase and an elegant overall style. How Lincoln managed to give what is essentially a big box such presence and beauty is beyond us. The illuminated emblem in the grille, the recessed lighting, and the masculine but sleek character lines down the side are all attractive elements on their own, but they come together to create a truly handsome machine.
The Navigator has one engine and transmission combo. Why? Because it’s good. You don’t need anything else. The twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 puts out 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. The 10-speed automatic transmission makes the most of that power, too, in terms of both performance and efficiency.
The Navigator puts its competitors in its rearview mirror in terms of performance and capabilities. It can do a 0-60 mph sprint in just 5.4 seconds. It’ll do the quarter-mile in a quick 14 seconds at 100 mph. Need something that can tow? The Navigator can pull 8,700 lbs. That’s more than the Infiniti QX80, GMC Yukon, Cadillac Escalade, or the Mercedes-Benz GLS. This SUV is at the top of the heap in terms of performance.
It features best-in-class second and third-row legroom, and there’s plenty of space for the whole family. There’s ample storage space in the center console and throughout the cabin, and the Navigator has a large cargo area – 19 cubic feet behind the third row and up to 103 cubic feet with the two rearmost rows of seats folded.
The interior isn’t just packaged well, it’s luxurious, too. The Navigator comes with rich, thick leather seating surfaces, open-pore wood and piano black plastic on the trim, and plenty of chrome accents. While the Black Label Navigator is the most luxurious, even lower trim levels offer some fantastic materials.
The system’s response time is one of the best in the industry, and the modern graphics make everything look great. The controls are mostly on the touchscreen, and the interface is smartly laid out.
The Sync 3 system comes with a variety of features, including highly sought after ones like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, and connected mobile apps. The Lincoln Navigator gives you access to all the features via a 10-inch capacitive touchscreen.
The Navigator comes with a long list of safety equipment, including a heads-up display, a 360-degree camera system, blind spot sensors, lane alerts and assist, automatic braking, and adaptive cruise control. Pair that with the high crashworthiness ratings, and you have one of the safer vehicles on the road.
