STATUS: Unchanged for 2020 - There's literally lots (a few tons, actually) to love about the Navigator if you're looking for Titanic-sized luxury with cavernous passenger and stowage space. Both it and the equally large Ford Expedition share similar weight-saving aluminum skins, but the Navigator's twin-turbocharged V-6 outguns the Expedition's engine by 75 horsepower. Both also are equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions that direct torque to the rear, or to all four wheels. Physically, the Navigator and the extended-length Navigator L adopt grilles that are similar to the rest of the Lincoln lineup. Buyers will find plenty of standard and optional trick stuff, including laminated side glass for a quieter cabin, "speed-dependent" adaptive headlights that spread their glow over a wider area at lower velocities, and a customizable cargo-management system designed to keep gear securely in its place. Front-seat passengers can be treated to 30-way power-adjustable chairs with heating, cooling and massage functions. Last, but far from least, you can order a 20-speaker premium audio system. For energizing your connected devices the Navigator comes with six USB ports, four 12-volt outlets and a 110-volt plug.
