The exterior chrome and square gauges have a retro 1960s look. The interior is all about comfort, luxury and modern technology. Build quality is excellent compared to the competition. For someone who drives nothing but full sized V8 trucks, I was impressed with the gas mileage and power of the Navigator. The seats are very comfortable and there is all kinds of leg, side and head room in all 3 rows.
Very smooth ride for a 4X4 vehicle, massive towing capability, second row captains chairs, great gas mileage for this class of SUV.
Sluggish 0-35 MPH? The 5.4L engine has plenty of power but is hampered by the slow and easy towing tune. Use a different tune like the 2WD Expedition which is essentially the same vehicle but is much quicker from a dead stop.
