Available in two models, standard and long-wheelbase L, the 2010 Lincoln Navigator promises comfort inside its cavernous interior. More upscale than the Ford Expedition, the Navigator is quiet and comfortable inside. Design and function of all the interior's core elements are good, and Lincoln's unique gauges are a fun touch. Seating is comfortable throughout, even in the oft-compromised third row. Power fold capability means the third row can be quickly and easily stowed when not in use, and as one of TheCarConnection's editors notes, the power fold feature can be used to scoot faraway cargo toward the rear, as it moves the cargo aft when unfolding the seats.
Materials inside the 2010 Lincoln Navigator are mostly high-quality, though there are a few low points. Premium trappings like "real-wood interior trim" and "luxuriously soft" leather are "let down" by cheap switchgear, painted plastic elements, and unpadded surfaces, says ConsumerGuide. Cars.com also finds fault with the interior plastic's texture, remarking it "doesn't seem nice enough to be in a pseudo-luxury vehicle."
On the whole, major elements are well-executed, but the details fall between the cracks. Cars.com finds the four cup holders enough for even the "incredibly thirsty traveler," but decries the lack of "smaller cubbies" in the cabin. "Big, plush seats" are everywhere, they continue, with "no shortage of room" anywhere in the cabin, according to ConsumerGuide.
Quietness also enhances the comfort, thanks in part to the "acoustic windshield, thicker side glass and increased insulation," says Kelley Blue Book.
