tall stance, big windows, HID headlights and massive outside mirrors aid visibility, and the standard reverse sensors ease parking this big beast
The Lincoln Navigator hasn't been rated by either of the major U.S. crash-test agencies in several years. But it does offer all the requisite safety features for a big SUV along with items like parking sensors and a camera system to help get over some of the parking-lot and driveway hazards of piloting such a mammoth vehicle.Included in the Navigator is the usual assortment of dual front, side and curtain airbags, along with anti-lock brakes, traction, and stability control with roll mitigation. There's also trailer-sway control, which helps the vehicle correct for the swinging motion induced when it's towing.
Some drivers might find outward visibility challenging in the Navigator because of its sheer height, but thankfully the big Lincoln comes with front parking sensors and a rearview camera system. And in case you have teens in the house or want valets to take it easy, Ford's MyKey system can put the kibosh on things like speeding or sound-system volume when you're not in the vehicle.
The 2013 Lincoln Navigator includes a reassuring list of safety features -- even if there aren't up-to-date crash-test ratings.
