2008 Lincoln Navigator | new car review

Posted on Jun 25, 2009 by

Based on the Ford
Expedition, the is one of the largest and most
powerful vehicles on the road. Surprisingly luxurious, this large SUV
continues to deliver highs levels of capability and functionality.
And it ought to be, being the masthead of Lincoln, a nameplate
associated with class and panache.

New for 2008 are more
comfortable seats, a rear view camera; something that was really
needed for a vehicle of this size and girth, Lincoln signature chrome
grill and HID projector headlamps with the integrated fog lamps. With
lots of chrome all around, the Navigator comes with a standard power
liftgate, cooled seats, power-folding third row seats and a high end
audio system.

Lincoln offers a long
wheel base version of the Navigator in the Middle East. 15 inches
longer than the regular model, the Navigator L offers additional 25
cubic feet of cargo volume behind the third-row seat. Both models are
available in 4×2 and 4×4 configurations.

The Navigator’s
interior features a flow through centre console that sweeps up into
the rectangular “eyebrows” that frame the dash panel. The
instrument bezels are inspired by popular rectangular fashion
eyewear. Cool-white lighting creates a calm feel to the interior at
night.

A 5.4-litre V8, mated to
a 6-speed auto is the propulsion unit for the Navigator. This 3-valve
engine produces 300hp and 365Nm of torque. It rides on 18-inch wheels
with the option of chromed 20-inchers on hand.

Standard on board
includes antilock brakes with brake assist, dual front and 2nd-row
curtain airbags, an improved tyre-pressure monitoring system and
AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control.
