The 2010 Lincoln Navigator
is a full-size luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV) available in Base and L trims. Propelled by a 5.4-liter V-8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, the Lincoln Navigator gives the consumer a choice of two- and four-wheel drive.
A truck-based offering with truck like capabilities, the Navigator can tow up to 9,000 pounds, when properly equipped. Available as a seven-seat vehicle, the Navigator is spacious as well and capable of hauling a load of cargo. Since the Navigator weighs three tons, the engine struggles at higher speeds. While the Navigator has achieved five-star safety ratings, its fuel economy is only in the 9 mpg city / 13 mpg highway range.
New for 2010
For 2010, the Lincoln Navigator receives trailer sway control and programmable MyKey added to the Sync system, while premium leather seats from previous years become standard.
Engine: 5.4L V-8
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Body Style: SUV
Trims: Base Sport Utility, L Base Sport Utility
On the Outside
The Lincoln Navigator features a little less chrome than the new Lincoln models but does come with 18-inch aluminum wheels as standard, while 20-inch chrome wheels are offered as an option.
From the Inside
Boasting a spacious interior with plenty of space for passengers in all three rows, the Lincoln Navigator has a maximum of 128.2 cubic-feet of cargo space in the L trim.
While the 5-4-liter V-8 engine generates a modest 310 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque mated to a relatively modern six-speed automatic transmission, the Lincoln Navigator's ladder-frame chassis allows the big SUV to tow up to 9,000 pounds and also perform off road.
Standard safety features on the Lincoln Navigator include stability control with a rollover sensor, traction control, antilock disc brakes with brake assist, front-seat side airbags and three-row side curtain airbags, trailer sway control, and a rear-view camera.
