5 reasons to buy the 2021 Lincoln Navigator

1. Generous cargo space 

If space is what you need, the 2021 Navigator Lincoln certainly delivers. Even in the standard wheelbase version of the Navigator, there’s 20.9 cu-ft of space with all the seats up, 63.6 cu-ft behind the second row, and 103 cu-ft with all the seats folded. This is more than enough to transport furniture, large amounts of luggage, or piles of sports equipment. The larger wheelbase – the 2021 Lincoln Navigator L – ramps the cargo space with all seats folded up to a whopping 120.2 cu-ft. Besides this, there are also plenty of cubbies and bins inside the cabin for passengers’ belongings.  

2. A great adventuring buddy 

The 2021 Lincoln Navigator, capable of accommodating over 100 cu-ft of cargo, boasts additional qualities that make it perfect for either a road trip or a staycation. Firstly, each version comes with a 450-hp turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine for plenty of power on the road. This means that, despite its size, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator still moves as swiftly regardless of the road surface. Fuel economy is respectable for such a large vehicle – the 2WD version achieves an EPA-estimated 18 combined mpg from the V6.

To seal the deal, it has a towing capacity of up to 8,700 lbs for the 2WD version when properly equipped.

3. Lots of driver aids 

You want to know you’re secure when you’re driving, and the 2021 Lincoln Navigator will give you peace of mind behind the wheel. As standard, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator comes with useful driver aids like pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and rear cross-traffic alert, while more high-tech things, such as a heads-up display and automatic park assist, are available as add-ons. When it comes to driving confidence, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator delivers. 

4. Family-friendly 

Whether you have children, a large family in general, or spend a lot of time ferrying friends around, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator is the perfect chariot for keeping all passengers happy. The vehicle seats either seven or eight depending on the configuration, and each row has plenty of slots and bins for belongings. All seats prioritize comfort – even in the third row – and the leather upholstery adds a touch of luxury. Plus, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator comes with the SYNC® 3 infotainment system, which is responsive and intuitive. As standard, the screen is 10-inches in size and the Navigator comes with a 14-speaker stereo, available Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto connectivity, and other features that will satisfy a group, like wireless charging and six USB ports.

5. Exceptional seating 

Lincoln has spared no expense when it comes to seating. The 2021 Lincoln Navigator seats seven as standard, or eight with the available second-row bench seat. The seats are upholstered with leather and the front seats are heated, ventilated, and power-adjustable. The second row is also heated and even the third row is sufficiently comfortable for adults. Driver and passengers of all shapes and sizes can find their perfect position in the 2021 Lincoln Navigator.
