For big family shoppers, purchasing a three-row crossover or a minivan is usually the ideal option. Indeed, with their long lists of specs and impressive fuel economy, you could even consider acquiring one. However, for those instances where you require maximum seating capacity as well as the power to drag a trailer, only a big, customary truck-based SUV such as the 2017 Lincoln Navigator L will do. Although it has a seven seats standard and class-leading 9,000-pound towing ability, the Lincoln Navigator offers you much more than simply rugged ability. Additionally, it’s a luxury car offering creature comforts. The Navigator, on the highway, is impressively comfortable and quiet, and its V6 turbocharged engine is powerful and offers easy driving experience despite your load. Furthermore, the Navigator has among the biggest interiors of all SUVs, thus interior space will rarely be an issue.
2017 Lincoln Navigator L – Design Appearance:
The 2017 Lincoln Navigator L general appearance remains quite similar, but certain specs are new. For instance, the grille has a radiator shape, the hood is refreshed, and the fog lights and front bumper are connected. The roof rails are mounted above the crossover and the rear end highlights are exhaust tips and lights. The 2017 Lincoln Navigator L interior cabin has 3 rows of seats with a sitting capacity of up to seven individuals. The seats are of the leather material, which also is wrapped around the steering wheel to update the interior environment. This is in addition to the movable and adjustable options that the seats also have.
Also, the cabin also has a dashboard, 3-zone environment control system, and an LCD. The touch screen size is about 8 inches. The modern and cutting-edge infotainment functions make the cabin classy and sophisticated in performance. The functions of the power-train include a braking system and power steering. The typical devices such as speakers, MP3, radio, and FM makes the vehicle’s interior elegant in efficiency. The storage space of the vehicle can also be increased using the adjustable choices offered.
Safety gear that comes standard comprises front-seat side airbags, traction and stability control, three-row side curtain airbags, antilock disc brakes, post-crash alert system, and a trailer sway control. Blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, a rear cross-traffic alert, and a rearview camera are equally standard. The MyKey system (standard and programmable) enables owners to stipulate stereo volume limits and speed limits for secondary drivers, such as valets and teenagers.
A four-wheel-drive Navigator at the tests tracks in a simulated anxiety stop in 125 ft. came to a sudden halt from 60 mph. That’s on average with this class of SUVs. However, the 2017 Lincoln Navigator L hasn’t yet been crash-tested, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in previous year’s test gave it an overall five-star rating (out of five), with the side-impact and frontal-impact protection both receiving five stars.
2017 Lincoln Navigator L – Unter the Hood:
Underneath the 2017 Lincoln Navigator L hood is a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost unit. The twin-turbo engine is paired off with an automatic 6-speed gearbox, whereas manual stays optional. Power is also sent to either all or rear wheels, at the choice of the buyer. AWD models cost somewhat more. The vehicle’s powertrain output is about 460 lb-ft and 380 hp of torque. There are three driving modes available, with Normal as launching, Sport and Comfort for a fast or smooth drive. The car is not very fuel efficient, as it goes 20 mpg on highway and 15 mpg in the city. The all-wheel drive system even consumes more gas.
2017 Lincoln Navigator L – MSRP and Availability Date:
The 2017 Lincoln Navigator L will have a manafacturer retail price of $65,000 based on trim level. Other trims, all-wheel drive system, and extra packages increase the vehicle’s manufacturer’s suggested retail price to over $70,000. And the release date is 2016 summertime.
