Comfort & Quality

Available in two models, standard and long-wheelbase L, the 2009 Lincoln Navigator promises comfort once inside its cavernous interior.

The interior of the 2009 Lincoln Navigator features mostly high-grade materials. “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,” says ConsumerGuide. Cars.com contends there's "something odd in the texture of 2009 Lincoln Navigator's new interior plastic...it doesn't seem nice enough to be in a pseudo-luxury vehicle."

Lesser-quality materials detract from the cabin of the otherwise luxurious 2009 Lincoln Navigator.

The ’09 Navigator doesn’t sweat the big stuff, but small items are easily lost within the vast interior. Cars.com remarks that the Navigator’s "center console sports four cupholders for the incredibly thirsty traveler," and 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."

According to Cars.com, "inside the cabin, big, plush seats welcome the driver and passengers." It is noted here that the Lincoln Navigator 2009 "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," remarks ConsumerGuide.

Kelley Blue Book says the 2009 Lincoln Navigator is "uncannily quiet inside due to a new acoustic windshield, thicker side glass and increased insulation throughout."
