2021 Lincoln Navigator video

[MUSIC PLAYING] ALISTAIR WEAVER: Luxury SUVs really should offer the best of all worlds. And our Edmunds editor's choice for 2019 delivers with panache. It's the Lincoln Navigator. [MUSIC PLAYING] JONATHAN ELFALAN: Powerful, capable, designed to make a statement-- the Lincoln Navigator is everything a luxury SUV should be. Its styling is uniquely American and a standout. The interior is elegant, functional, and packed with clever storage solutions. The available 20-speaker sound system is a masterpiece. And there's lots of other useful tech which help create a fantastic in-cabin experience. [MUSIC PLAYING] CARLOS LAGO: We love these seats, too. They're heated and ventilated. And they'll even give you a massage. Their positioning is just right so you don't end up with your knees around your neck. There's enough space inside for seven or eight full-size adults. And if that's not enough, there's a long version available, too. MARK TAKAHASHI: Despite its massive size, the Navigator is surprisingly easy to drive. The turbocharged V6 has plenty of power for towing yet returns decent fuel economy. Prices start just above $70,000, so this is no cheap Lincoln. But it's brilliantly well-rounded. That's why it's our favorite luxury rig for families. [MUSIC PLAYING] ALISTAIR WEAVER: Head to edmunds.com for a full review of the Lincoln Navigator and to find a great deal near you.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Lincoln Navigator?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
