Expert Quotes:

strays from Expedition's large, clear presentation of gauges with a retro design of smaller, fussier, and harder-to-read shapes
Consumer Guide

massive grille attracts attention (for better or worse) like a Las Vegas marquee advertising a $5 steak dinner and Wayne Newton Live
Edmunds

The modern face of American luxury is a big toothy grin covered in braces.
Edmunds

World’s biggest cheese grater. World’s biggest BBQ grille. World’s biggest harmonica. Any analogy you come up with for the Navigator’s new front end always is prefaced by “world’s biggest.”
Autobytel

Not that the gallons of chrome slathered all over the Navigator are exactly subtle.
Automobile Magazine

The 2014 Lincoln Navigator's styling is getting up there in age–now looking almost retro from some angles–but it's a traditional luxury SUV at its finest, and may actually satisfy someone who preferred those old-school SUV charms. It's a big, boxy utility vehicle with a lot of extra glitz and chrome. However, it's not quite as flashy as an Escalade, which has essentially claimed the throne to the kingdom of SUV gluttony.

Take a step back, and while the Navigator definitely has its share of overdrawn details--like the somewhat over-the-top Sixties-sized grille, and oversized taillamps--and the body shell is at the least tastefully proportioned. On the down side, Ford has failed to touch up either the Navigator or its Ford sibling, the Expedition, with the somewhat brawnier, more chiseled update that the F-150 pickup (which both models are somewhat related to) received.

On the inside, there's a similar story. The Navigator's cabin feels part unintentionally retro from the last decade, and part inspired from earlier Lincolns of the 1970s and '80s. The Navigator really bears little semblance in its interior details or design to newer Lincoln models like the new MKZ or MKS sedans, or the MKX crossover. It's effective though, as well as straightforward and perhaps a little trucklike, but with soft detailing.

Conclusion

Without an update for years, the aging Navigator hasn't kept up with its glam neighbors.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
