Detailed Review

This SUV has been appreciated since it received the North American Truck of the Year award at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Yes, we are talking about none other than Lincoln Navigator. The 2019 Lincoln Navigator is known for its impressive build quality and perfromance. Last year itself, the Navigator received major redesign and it worked in its favor.

The exterior outlook projected by the 2019 Navigator is outstanding and mesmerizing. The SUV has got extraordinary capability of carrying people and tow heavy loads. Powering the core is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that churns out 450 hp. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The additional gearing offers positive impact on the acceleration and fuel economy.

There is an extensive use of premium material inside the cabin. The three rows are wide enough to fit passengers. The dash offers a fresh infotainment system along with modern tech. The only drawback of this size is problematic maneuvering in the city. Otherwise, the Navigator stands on all expectations and is likely capturing the luxury SUV at fast pace.

The base Navigator trim is available only in standard wheelbase whereas the other trims are available are available in extended wheelbase Navigator L that gets more cargo volume.

We Recommend

The 2019 Navigator is truly expensive no matter the base trim is available with a lower starting price, the top trim offers almost everything as standard. We would suggest the mid Select trim. The Select trim has received great updates like adaptive suspension and there's not much price gap as well. You may further add optional Technology package for important driver safety equipment.

2019 Lincoln Navigator Engine

8.2/10
“Despite its size, the 2019 Lincoln Navigator has composed handling, and it provides a comfortable ride even over uneven pavement. The Navigator's powerful V6 engine easily pushes this large SUV along, and it gets good fuel economy ratings for the class.”- cars.usnews

Engine and Transmission

Power duties are carried out by 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that churns out 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. We believe that it is sufficient power to run this beast around city or highway. You can make the drive exciting with drive mode selectors that will make the 10-speed automatic transmission to get into the job.

Acceleration

The Navigator SUV weighs 6000 pounds, and still manages to sprint zero to 60 MPF in less than 7 seconds. This is the one of the best examples of marvelous engineering. It nicely beats most of ots rivas, but fails to do the same with the Cadillac Escalade. The Escalade is quicker than the Navigator SUV in quarter mile acceleration as well. However, the refines 10speed transmission feels much better than that available with the Escalade. The transmission allows smooth shifts and seamless driving experience.
