Big SUVs like the Lincoln Navigator have been in fashion, and then awkwardly out of it, but that doesn’t mean they’re an extinct species. The diehards — Land Cruiser, Range Rover, GL-Class, Escalade, and Navigator — live on, and in a couple of instances, are living better than ever.
In recent years, the Navigator has seemed a bit like a relic in the Lincoln lineup. It was as if the Navi was a model that the brand, after purging the Town Car sedan, couldn’t quite figure out what to do with. But now for 2015 the Navigator finds a fresh direction: with some new details from front end to tailgate, a new infotainment system, and a new, more fuel-efficient (and stronger) twin-turbo engine packed into its mega-sized dimensions.
Does it still feel like the 72-ounce steak of Lincolns? And is it enough to tackle the new, fully redesigned Escalade? In both cases, the answer is yes.
