Expert Quotes:

strays from Expedition's large, clear presentation of gauges with a retro design of smaller, fussier, and harder-to-read shapes
Consumer Guide

massive grille attracts attention (for better or worse) like a Las Vegas marquee advertising a $5 steak dinner and Wayne Newton Live

The modern face of American luxury is a big toothy grin covered in braces.
Edmunds' Inside Line

World’s biggest cheese grater. World’s biggest BBQ grille. World’s biggest harmonica. Any analogy you come up with for the Navigator’s new front end always is prefaced by “world’s biggest.”

Not that the gallons of chrome slathered all over the Navigator are exactly subtle.
Automobile Magazine

The 2011 Lincoln Navigator hasn't changed much in appearance in many years—it's still a big body-on-frame box on wheels, albeit one dressed up with a lot of bling. Along with the Cadillac Escalade it's become iconic among some cultural subsets, and some of the Navigator's styling cues—its huge, chrome grille, for instance, which at once brings to mind 1960s-era station wagons, and more recent full-size pickups—might be horrible and garish to some tastes, stylish and fresh to others.

Inside, there's a lot of inspiration from earlier Lincolns, this time with gauges modeled after those found in 1970s and '80s vehicles. There's a retro look, no doubt, but they're very visible and straightforward.


Depending on how you see it, the 2011 Lincoln Navigator is either a relic of another time, or the king of bling. Either way, its style is uniquely American.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
