Review of the 2005 Lincoln Navigator

  • A spacious and stylish full-size luxury SUV, but the Escalade is more powerful and the Lexus LX 470 more refined.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Lots of room for passengers and cargo, handles well for its size, stylish interior, smooth drivetrain, extensive list of luxury features.

  • Cons

    A few low-grade interior materials, still can't match the Escalade's power, some confusing controls.

  • What's New for 2005

    A revised version of last year's 5.4-liter V8 engine mated to an all-new six-speed automatic transmission gives the Navigator a boost in performance and refinement. The AdvanceTrac stability control system now features Roll Stability Control and is standard on all Navigators. Design changes include a new front fascia, revised side cladding and running boards. A new 18-inch chrome wheel design is also available.

My 2005 Lincoln navigator mpg Gauge is going down. When I bought it was reading 13.2 then 12.9 now is reading 12.8. I would like to hear from some one if this is normal or something is wrong.




Love it, love it, love

I bought a 2005 fully loaded ultimate 4x2 navigator in September 2009. I had two jeeps and a fully loaded dodge ram pickup prior to this navigator and there is no comparison. I love my navi. It drives like a dream the engine is powerful and smooth. Love the air suspension fills like your riding on air. I will drive it until the wheels fall off and then my next car will be a navigator




Wow!!!!

I had never considered a Nav, I'm 6'3" - the Escalade was a huge disappointment - dash and emergency brake cut into my shin and leg! Happened upon the Nav by chance. Was very taken with comfort, pick-up and ease of handling! I was surprised by the comments about lacking power, as the "Baby" moves like a bat out of hell and thinks 90 is an appropriate cruising speed. Among the most comfortable and supportive seats I have ever had in a car. I will agree that the gas mileage was a kick in the head -- but considering it's size and weight it could be alot worse. All in all -- an A+ on the car -- which does not extend to the dealership --yuck!




Good to excellent

New 6peed automatic trans is a great feature. Engine power is excellent. I pull an RV it has plenty of torque. Economy is excellent for its size. Handling is superb.




Smoothest ride

Vehicle: 2005 Lincoln Navigator Ultimate Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)

The Navigator drives extremely well. The air suspension makes the drive smooth and the air tight doors and windows makes for a quiet drive. The power deployable running boards and liftgate is an outstanding feature for anyone especially women with children. The extensive safety features on this vehicle was a buying factor for my family. The side air bag curtains seems like a great feature to have for the safety of my children. The roll stability sounds great knowing that SUV's tend to flip. The fuel economy is within normal range of a large SUV, although the increased gas prices do not help. Not featured in most SUV's is the 3rd row seat that is comfortable with plenty of leg space.

Traded in suburban due to a little smaller size vehicle. Certain offered many more upgrades and luxury type features.
