The last time bought a Lincoln was in 1977. Through the years all cars have improved in maintenance and ride comfort. Before purchasing this Navigator, I have driven 2 Tahoes for 21 years. My first drive in this new Navigator I notice the quietness of the interior cabin. The ride is very smooth. I am also surprised by the turbocharged engine. The acceleration is smooth and quick. Confidence builder! The only think I felt lacking is the instrument panel. It is on the small side. The font size of wording is too small for my eyes to read quickly. The pinkish lighting color on the word just makes it even harder to read. Other than that I am very happy with the purchase.

Fortunate to have purchased this "Executive Vehicle", because a prior company owned it and let only their high level mgmt drive it. Did a carfax on it and everything was good so far, saw it at the dealership and test drove it along with the 2017 expedition el platinum. This is definitely a lot quieter than the expedition and there are significant differences that make it a Lincoln w/ a different badge and not just some Expedition w/ a different badge. Ended purchasing this w/ a 10yr/100k bumper2bumper warranty. The vehicle drives like a dream. My family and I were also looking at the new top of the line Suburban, Yukon Denali XL, Escalade, and the AMG GLS 63 SUV. Ended up with this one because fr the price point and what I was getting it was just worth it. Did not like the GM vehicles, the steering felt sloggy and who still uses column shifters on high end vehicles?! As for the gls63, towing capacity maxes out @ 7500 which for that price point and motor it's got it rather weak. The Navigator has the ability to tow and tow a boat/trailer it will here in the Pacific NW. Overall impressed, just wish the 2017 model was not as antiquated with the accoutrements inside; but that was definitely addressed with the 2018 totally redesigned Navigator. Those are selling like hotcakes!
