2010 Lincoln Navigator Review

(2 Stars)  Needs engine, interior upgrades

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Navigator, which is a full size, Sport Utility Vehicle, weighing almost 3 tons, won't be purchased by those concerned about fuel economy. It was one of the first truck based SUV's on the market and received a major redesign a few years ago. There is only one trim level, albeit one very well equipped trim level. This monster of a vehicle can comfortably transport 7 people and all of their cargo. It's also capable of towing almost 9000 lbs. If it's not big enough for you, Lincoln offers the navigator L, the long wheelbase version, which adds 15 inches to the already not insubstantial overall length of the vehicle.

The power for all this vehicle comes from a 5.4 liter V-8 that generates 310 Hp and 365 Ft.-LBS. of torque. This power is sent through a 6 speed automatic transmission and can be routed through either a two, or four wheel drive system. While the power supplied by this motor is ample, and it is able to manage a 15miles per gallon combine economy, it shows itself as somewhat underpowered when fully loaded.
