Which Navigator does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating8.4 / 10
Here's all you really need to know: The 2019 Lincoln Navigator is one of our favorite luxury SUVs. Last year's redesign enhanced the Navigator's already impressive capability to carry people and tow heavy loads. It also ushered in fresh styling and new features. This new Lincoln is at the head of the class against its American counterparts and likely earns front-row status with valet attendants, too.
We think the 2019 Navigator wears Lincoln's new design language well. It has both presence and style, even when parked next to SUVs from well-established marques such as Mercedes-Benz and Range Rover. Under the hood is an impressive turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that cranks out a stout 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. All that massive power gets to the ground via a 10-speed automatic transmission. And while 10 speeds may seem like overkill, you'll hardly notice the shifting, and the additional gearing helps improve both acceleration and fuel economy.
Inside, the Navigator uses top-notch materials on every panel. There are three rows of adult-size seating, a massive amount of cargo space, and modern tech behind the prominent infotainment screen. About the only downside is the care required in driving in crowded urban areas, but that's hardly a unique con for a full-size SUV. Overall, we think Lincoln's Navigator is one of the nicest — and certainly the most surprising — luxury SUVs on the market for 2019.
2019 Lincoln Navigator configurations
The 2019 Lincoln Navigator is available four trim levels: base, Select, Reserve and Black Label. All trims are powered by a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 (450 hp, 500 lb-ft) paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive is optional for the first two trims. The Reserve and the Black Label come with 4WD standard.
The base Navigator trim level uses the standard wheelbase only. The Select, Reserve and Black Label trims are all available in the extended-wheelbase Navigator L that has additional cargo space. All Navigators have standard second-row captain's chairs and seat seven, but a three-person 40/20/40-split second-row bench seat is optional to boost seating capacity to eight.
Standard feature highlights on the base trim include 20-inch wheels, LED headlights, a trailer towing package, a power liftgate, keyless ignition and entry, tri-zone automatic climate control, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings, first- and second-row leather upholstery (third-row vinyl), power-adjustable and heated front seats, power-folding second-row captain's chairs with heating, and a power-folding 60/40-split third-row bench.
Also included is a configurable gauge cluster display, 10-inch touchscreen display with the Sync 3 interface, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, six USB ports throughout the cabin, navigation, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a 14-speaker surround-sound system.
The Select adds 22-inch wheels, adaptive suspension dampers, power-folding running boards, upgraded leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, a surround-view parking camera system, and a wireless charging pad for personal devices.
Just a bit further up the ladder is the Reserve trim that adds a panoramic sunroof and upgraded front seats with ventilation. You also get the Technology package (optional on the Select) that includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic braking, a head-up display, lane keeping assist, an automated parking system and automatic high beams.
The Black Label Navigator adds the above options as standard plus additional chrome exterior trim, upgraded leather upholstery and a 20-speaker stereo system. For 2019, Lincoln's 30-way multicontour front seats are standard equipment.
Some of the upper trim level items are available as stand-alone or packaged options on the lower trim levels. Other notable options include a rear-seat entertainment system, with dual headrest-mounted displays and wireless headphones, and power-folding and heated second-row seats.

Lincoln Navigator vs. the competition
2019 Lincoln Navigator
2019 Cadillac Escalade
Lincoln Navigator vs. Cadillac Escalade
These two full-size luxury SUVs have been slugging it out for years. Both offer distinctly American style and high towing capabilities. But because of the Cadillac's dated interior, solid rear-axle suspension, and subsequent harsh ride and too-high load floor, we think the Navigator is the better choice.
Lincoln Navigator vs. Ford Expedition
When fully optioned in its Platinum trim level, the Expedition rivals the Lincoln in quality leather, wood appointments, size and power. The Ford is powered by a slightly less powerful — but still robust version — of the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 found in the Lincoln. You give up a few features, but the Expedition is worth considering if you want to save a little cash.
Lincoln Navigator vs. Chevrolet Suburban
The Suburban is a corporate cousin of the Cadillac Escalade. The Suburban's a good choice, but it can't really compete with the luxury and sophistication of the Lincoln. You'd be better off getting the Ford Expedition Max if you want the Lincoln's capabilities at a lower cost.
2019 Lincoln Navigator SUV for Sale
Coming off a redesign last year, the 2019 Lincoln Navigator carries over its stylish looks, along with the turbocharged engine and all sorts of top-level tech equipment on the inside. The engine, an impressive turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 with 450 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque, is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. And the Navigator can be had in both two- and four-wheel drive.
Like Navigators of the past, this 2019 model is available in two lengths — standard and extended wheelbase. The extended-wheelbase Navigator — the L — provides additional rear cargo space that will certainly help on long trips with lots of people and lots of luggage. Both sizes come standard with three rows of seating and capacity for seven passengers. (A bench seat in the second row that expands capacity to eight is optional.) And much like previous Navigators, there are multiple trim levels and options to satisfy your need for luxury and available technology.
The base trim level has quite a bit of equipment including items such as a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated front and second-row seats, power-adjustable pedals, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, a 14-speaker surround-sound audio system, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The midlevel Select and Reserve trims add a few desirable creature comforts such as adaptive suspension dampers, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats and a panoramic sunroof, all of which are sure to enhance the luxury experience.
The Black Label Navigator is the topped-out trim level of sorts, with safety features such as adaptive cruise control, active parking assistance and lane departure warning, as well as upgraded interior trim, full leather upholstery with 30-way power adjustable seats, and a 20-speaker stereo. Depending on the trim, there are a few stand-alone options such as bigger wheels and a rear entertainment system.
When it comes to full-size luxury SUVs, the distinct capabilities of each one can make it hard to focus on a best choice. But the Navigator's impressive power and towing capability, premium cabin, and extensive number of features appear to justify the Navigator's price as well as its place alongside offerings from Range Rover and Mercedes-Benz. It belongs in this class that demands unique character as well as style, sophistication and presence. If the 2019 Lincoln Navigator is on your shopping list, let Edmunds help you find the right one for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 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.
