standard safety features meet the luxury-class baseline
Automotive

Crash scores for the 2008 Lincoln Navigator are among the best for any SUV on the market.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the Navigator five out of five stars in front impact protection and four stars in rollover resistance, but Cars.com notes that the 2008 Lincoln Navigator "has not been crash tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which has a more stringent testing process than NHTSA."

Automotive.com says that the Lincoln Navigator's "standard safety features meet the luxury-class baseline," and includes "dual-stage front airbags, front occupant side-impact airbags and curtain-style head protection airbags for all outboard seats." In addition, every Lincoln Navigator is "equipped with Lincoln's AdvanceTrac anti-skid stability program. This system features Roll Stability Control, which uses a gyroscopic roll-rate sensor to enhance rollover resistance," as well as "four-channel antilock brakes (ABS), rear obstacle detection and a tire-pressure monitor," all offered as standard Lincoln Navigator equipment. Cars.com notes that "tire pressure is always important to keep an eye on, and even more so with SUVs." ConsumerGuide offers "kudos to Lincoln for making a rearview camera available, but it's unfortunately part of a pricey option package."

Automotive.com also comments on visibility, which the Lincoln Navigator 2008 has in abundance: "once the driver gets comfortable, however, it's hard to beat the commanding view ahead. A Greyhound bus or tractor-trailer rig are about the only vehicles on the road that can obstruct the driver's forward vision in a 2008 Lincoln Navigator."

Conclusion

The 2008 Lincoln Navigator is a real safety performer.

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.
