2003 Lincoln Navigator

2003 Navigator Photos
Large SUVs are extremely popular for their ability to carry lots of people and a decent amount of cargo. However, because they are based on trucks, they have left a lot to be desired in the handling department. They have never delivered a rewarding driving experience due to a rough ride and/or sloppy steering and handling. If you're using a large SUV strictly for its utility this does not really matter, but more and more people are buying a luxury SUV as an alternative to a large luxury sedan.

No manufacturer has been able to produce a large luxury SUV with anywhere near decent handling. Cynics would say that's impossible as no large tank built on a truck chassis could even be made to handle like a nimble small sedan. The laws of physics work against it.

Until now that is.

Amazingly, Lincoln engineers have taken a truck chassis and totally reengineered it such that the new 2003 Lincoln Navigator does handle and ride much like a large luxury sedan.

Now if you need to carry up to eight passengers and/or cargo and enjoy the experience as a driver, you can. Even those who do not like large SUVs have to be impressed with what Lincoln has done. The fact that many of the engineers who worked on this vehicle came from Jaguar is no coincidence.
