With over a decade on the roads and through several updates, the Lincoln Navigator is still as large and stately as ever. Reviewers sum up the 2010 Lincoln Navigator as a brash and flashy piece of rolling bling. TheCarConnection.com's editors like the 1960s-esque grille work, though others have called it "overkill in chrome."
"Chrome" might not be the right word, however, as Cars.com points out-"it's actually painted plastic" and up close, it doesn't look "substantial." Edmunds doesn't care about the technicalities and says the Navigator has the "most amount of chrome available on the nose of any current production vehicle." Cars.com admits it looks like the real thing from a distance, and MotherProof calls the look of the 2010 Navigator "distinctive, stylish, and decidedly Lincoln," though it'll never be considered "discreet." Cars.com cuts to the chase and labels the Navigator the "Blingmobile."
Styling in the cabin also draws some inspiration from earlier Lincolns, this time with gauges similar to those found in 1970s and 1980s vehicles. Kelley Blue Book says the design has even deeper roots, with a "'50s retro look." Cars.com praises them for being "easy to read and extremely distinctive."
