Lincoln Navigator review

Published: 13 Apr 2020


What is it like on the inside?

All the points that might be lost on the driving are more than compensated for by the Navigator’s superb interior. In Black Label spec it is, quite simply, one of the best, most comfortable and spacious automotive interiors in the world. The level of detailing, fit and finish and material quality is excellent and the way it operates indicates that it will last for years.

The 30-way front captain’s chairs have every conceivable adjustment, including individual adjustment for each leg, massage functions plus auto heating and cooling. In the second row you can opt for a three-seat bench or two captain’s chairs. And then there are two adult-sized separate seats in the third row. All of them offer best in class comfort and space. And, in the L version, there’s still enough space behind the seats to stash a fair amount of shopping.

The instrument panel offers everything from a configurable head-up display to a built-in inductive phone charger. There’s no gearlever whatsoever, just four toggle switches to select PRND. It frees up so much centre console space, it’s surprising more carmakers don’t follow suit.

Being part of the Ford Motor Company, it’s no surprise to find a Lincoln version of the Blue Oval’s Co-Pilot 360 suite of tech. This makes things like parking and avoiding hitting things much more simple. When you’re in a vehicle as large as this, that’s good for you – and for all the other road users you’re bearing down on.

But there are some uniquely Lincoln tech touches, too. The optional 20-speaker Revel Ultima sound system fills the concert hall-sized cabin with a suitable amount of noise and ambience. To the point you might want to stay in your car rather than bother to see the live show. And then, of course, there’s the Lincoln Way app. This allows you to do everything from unlock and start the car remotely to connecting with the Lincoln Concierge.
