14 mpg city, 20 highway (rear-wheel drive); 13/18 (4WD)
a 4WD Navigator averaged just 12.5 mpg, a thirsty total even for a vehicle driven in mostly city conditions
An old engine and sheer mass work against the 2014 Lincoln Navigator, and it's only rated at 16 mpg combined (14 mpg city, 20 mpg highway) in rear-wheel-drive models. Those equipped with four-wheel drive do worse, with ratings of 15 mpg combined (13 mpg city, 18 mpg highway). It's officially a flex-fuel vehicle, with the ability to run on E85 if you happen to be near the 1 percent of U.S. gas stations that offer it--but then fuel efficiency falls to 12 mpg or 11 mpg combined, respectively.
However, if you fill each of the seven seats with a passenger, fill the cargo hold with stuff, and decide to tow a boat, you'll find that the environmental impact per person isn't all that bad. With a luxurious space for up to seven, plus cargo--with some towing ability built in--it just might replace two vehicles on a road trip.
Thirst for gas is the Navigator's downfall.
