Close your eyes and put yourself in the shoes of someone shopping for a full-size, upmarket SUV from a more traditional nameplate. Then the Navigator makes sense.

Yes, it’s big. It’s loaded with extras–all of them.

Why not a Ford instead? Wouldn’t that be more practical? Yes, but it doesn’t wear the premium badge.

Something for the gearheads from the Navigator, though. Check out the drivetrain: It features a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 450 horsepower along with 510 lb.-ft. of torque backed by a 10-speed automatic. On the road, power delivery is smooth and seamless.
