With a standard-features list that meets or exceeds the domestic SUV class, the 2012 Lincoln Navigator is a conservative but richly fitted luxury truck—one with some of the most advanced connectivity features in the class.
Among its standard features are more functional pieces, like power running boards that ease entry and exit, and leather seating. Last year Ford added some of its highest tech to the mix: there's now Sirius Travel Link, HD Radio, and SYNC, the Bluetooth controller that enables voice commands for some audio, navigation and phone controls. The SYNC and Sirius Travel Link system offers voice-activated control of climate and navigation systems, plus the ability to search traffic and weather conditions in real time. All are now standard, along with Ford's MyKey system, which lets drivers set limits on vehicle functions such as radio volume and top speed.
There are plenty of chances to option the 2012 Navigator with items including a power moonroof, rear-seat DVD system, perimeter alarm, illuminated entry with approach lamps, remote start, and adjustable pedals. Adaptive cruise control is one of the few increasingly common options that's missing.
