2016 Lincoln Navigator

Pros: New turbo V6 engine delivers improved economy with no significant sacrifice in power; Spacious and comfortable 3rd-row seat folds flat to the floor; impressive towing capacity; lots of standard equipment

Cons: Fuel economy is still poor compared to most vehicles; some controls are placed out of easy reach; tall step-in height means entry and exit can be tricky for smaller occupants

CG Says: After last year’s refresh, the 2016 Lincoln Navigator gains a new Sync 3 infotainment control system. The Navigator is obviously an expensive vehicle, but it is actually something of a bargain when compared to the rest of its class—and to high-end versions of the Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon. The Navigator’s 3rd-row seat space and comfort remains among the best in the class, and the extensive updates for 2015 help Navigator hold its own against the redesigned Cadillac Escalade.
