There’s nothing quite like balling on a budget that comes with driving a Lincoln Navigator around Massachusetts! When the first Navigator hit the streets of Boston and other cities, it was a huge hit and quickly established itself as the luxury SUV of choice. Its direct competitor, the Cadillac Escalade, took over the market a few years after the Navigator sold the most units ever in its first release year. And it’s ruled that market ever since, but what it’s also done is make the Lincoln Navigator a bit of a members-only club.
It’s not often you see one of these luxury SUVs on the roads around Boston and beyond anymore, so when you’re driving one, you know you are part of an exclusive club. But what model year of the Navigator is right for you?
That’s what your used car leasing financing friends at Drivrz Financial are here for. Today, we’ve put together a list of the best used Lincoln Navigators by year so you can be sure you’re choosing the right one for you!
1999 Navigator – 1st Generation
Talk about one of the OG luxury SUVs. The 1999 Navigator added power-adjustable pedals and speed-sensitive volume control for the audio system. In addition, the third-row seat was put on rollers to make it quick and easy to remove for added cargo capacity. Powered by a 300-horsepower 5.4-liter engine, producing 360 ft-lbs. Of torque, this model year Navigator has a tow rating of up to 8,500 pounds.
2005 Navigator – 2nd Generation
With the second generation of Navigators came a facelift that replaced the front bumper and the round fog lights with square ones. Lincoln also updated the side cladding, providing a sleeker appearance for the running boards. In addition, the 2005 Navigator comes with a new V8 engine with the same 300-horsepower as the 5.4-liter option but more torque. Inside, more tech features and updates to the luxury SUVs styling and brand come standard, including a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, DVD-based satellite navigation system with a voice-activated touch screen, THX audio system, and HID headlights.
2007 Navigator – 3rd Generation
Lincoln took the Navigator back to its classic look for this redesign year, as well as incorporated classic styling and details from the 1961 Lincoln Continental—just take a look at the all-new huge, chromed grille on this model year, and you’ll see what we mean! In addition, Navigator’s platform is more rigid, and they revised the independent suspension system to deliver better handling and improved ride quality. Finally, with interior features like turn signal mirrors laced the exterior and parking sensors, leather-upholstered power seats, adjustable pedals, a trip computer, and an auxiliary audio input for MP3 players, you can still cruise in style in the 2007 Navigator.
You could call the 2019 Navigator the Taj Mahal if you wanted it due to its massive size and spectacular style. They debuted a massive redesign of their flagship SUV with this model year, complete with a modern exterior and a plush, stylin’ interior treatment. And with the superpowered 450-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine, you’ll have effortless power at your feet. When you sit inside the 2019 Navigator, you’ll discover features like massaging seats, a panoramic sunroof, and safety features like a heads-up display, adaptive cruise control, self-parking feature, automatic high-beam headlamps, lane-keeping assist, and automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
