The 2008 Lincoln Navigator is as big inside as it is on the outside, with comfortable seats and plush appointments.

As last year, the 2008 Navigator comes in two editions for 2008: standard and long-wheelbase L, which is 14.7 inches longer than the standard model and has more storage capacity (42.7 cubic feet. vs. 18.2 cubic feet). With both the second- and third-row seats folded, the standard Navigator boasts 103.5 cubic feet of cargo space, while the L model ups that to a cavernous 128.2 cubic feet.

Automotive.com reports "any version of this full-size sport-utility vehicle can seat either seven or eight." According to Cars.com, "inside the cabin, big, plush seats welcome the driver and passengers." It is noted here that the Lincoln Navigator 2008 "third row was about as cramped as any third row in a large SUV these days, but the power fold option was nifty to watch." In any event, the Lincoln Navigator has "no shortage of room in any direction...the seats are generously sized and very supportive," says ConsumerGuide.

Storage and cargo space are equally generous. While Cars.com remarks that the Navigator’s "center console sports four cupholders for the incredibly thirsty traveler," this source points out that "it didn't fit much other stuff...there were no smaller cubbies for things like breath mints, change, a cell phone, etc." However, Automotive.com states that folding "the second- and third-row seats...the Navigator L opens a whopping 129 cubic feet of cargo space."

The materials used in the Lincoln Navigator draw mostly favorable notice. ConsumerGuide notes "luxuriously soft leather upholstery and real-wood interior trim are standard," but the "premium ambiance is let down by low-budget switchgear feel, painted plastic panels, and a few too many unpadded surfaces." Cars.com also  contends there's "something odd in the texture of 2008 Lincoln Navigator's new interior plastic...it doesn't seem nice enough to be in a pseudo-luxury vehicle."

Kelley Blue Book says the 2008 Lincoln Navigator is "uncannily quiet inside due to a new acoustic windshield, thicker side glass and increased insulation throughout."

Conclusion

The 2008 Lincoln Navigator interior is wonderfully luxurious, but marred by some lower-grade materials.

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.
