2012 Lincoln Navigator Styling

6.0
On Styling

Still a big, two-box ute with lots of metallic trim and bejeweled details, the 2012 Lincoln Navigator hasn't changed its game much over the past decade. Does it need to? Of the buyers still left looking for big, blingy SUVs, the Navigator still gets its share, though it was eclipsed years ago by Cadillac's even more glitzy Escalade.

Unplug some of the Navigator's more overdrawn details--the Sixties-sized grille comes to mind--and the basic Navigator body shell is actually pretty conservative, themed as tastefully as Ford's own Expedition.

Is it a piece of American archaeology, or still a swinging king of bling? With the 2012 Lincoln Navigator, it can be hard to tell.
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.
