2012 Lincoln Navigator Overview
With seating for up to eight occupants, the 2012 Lincoln Navigator full-size luxury SUV is the perfect family-mobile that mom and dad are sure to love.
Not much has changed this year in the 2012 Lincoln Navigator except for the addition of spotter mirrors that provide a more complete view of the driver’s blind spots and full voice control of smartphone applications with the available Sync AppLink system. The Navigator has a longer-wheelbase brother, Navigator L and competes with other full-size luxury SUVs such as the Cadillac Escalade and Infiniti QX56.
Available in one trim and with one engine, the 2012 Lincoln Navigator is very straightforward when it comes to the details. A 310-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 (with E85 capability) generates a powerful 365 pounds-feet of torque for optimal hauling capability. The Navigator receives its best tow rating in rear-wheel drive at 9,000 pounds compared to 8,700 pounds for the four-wheel-drive models. Equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, the Navigator gets 13-14 mpg in the city and 18-20 mpg on the highway.
Aside from engine size and towing capabilities, the 2012 Lincoln Navigator boasts a cavernous interior with multiple seating arrangements. Captain’s chairs for the second row are standard, but you can get a split-bench seat instead at no extra charge. The power-folding third row is standard and provides an easy solution when extra cargo space is needed. Speaking of cargo space, the Navigator has 18.1 cubic feet of volume behind the third row, 54.4 cubic feet behind the second row and 103.3 cubic feet behind the first row.
The luxurious interior features power, leather, heated and ventilated front seats, power adjustable pedals, wood accents, heated second-row bucket seats, satellite radio, 14-speaker, 600-watt THX certified surround sound system and Sync voice-activated multimedia system that manages your Bluetooth hands-free calling and mobile audio device integration via a USB port are all standard features. A navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic and a dual headrest seven-inch color LCD DVD entertainment system are optional.
Standard features abound outside of the 2012 Lincoln Navigator with xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a power liftgate, 18-inch wheels and power-lowering running boards. A moonroof and 20-inch chrome rims are optional.
Keeping you and your family safe is a priority for the 2012 Lincoln Navigator with antilock brakes, front and rear parking sensors, backup camera, electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control and trailer-sway control and MyKey, which limits the top speed and volume so you don’t have to worry too much about your kids when they borrow the keys.
Big enough for the family or team and built for road trips or city driving, the luxurious 2012 Lincoln Navigator full-size SUV is up to the task.
