2000 Navigator New Car Test Drive
The Lincoln Navigator offers all the requisites that appeal to buyers looking to join the herd of big sport-utilities on the road: a high seating position, brawny looks and a roomy cabin for passengers and cargo. To those SUV attributes, Lincoln adds a host of features designed to coddle its occupants in a quiet, soft environment. Last but not least, the Navigator is built on the rugged structure of the Ford F-150, the best-selling pickup truck in the U.S.
For 2000, the Lincoln Navigator features a new satellite navigation system, a reverse sensing system, climate-controlled seats and minor styling revisions.
Lincoln Navigator is available with two-wheel drive ($42,460) or four-wheel drive ($46,210).
Navigator is powered by a 5.4-liter four-valve twin-cam V8 engine rated at 300 horsepower. It comes standard with a four-speed electronically controlled automatic overdrive transmission. The 4x4 Navigator comes with an advanced four-wheel-drive system that offers a low-range set of gears, as well as Ford's Control Trac system.
