Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2014 Lincoln Navigator OVERVIEW

Once the king of full-size luxury SUVs, the Lincoln Navigator has largely stood still as competitors became more advanced in recent years. It's no longer the most opulent or brash choice, but it's a commodious vehicle that's a good choice for people hauling things or passengers.

The bigger question buyers need to ponder, though, is whether they need the truck-based abilities of the Navigator -- or if they'd be better off with a more comfortable and efficient crossover.

What's New

Entering its eighth model year in its current version, the Navigator gets no meaningful changes for 2014.

Interior/Exterior

The Navigator's exterior hasn't changed much since its 2007 redesign. It may be huge, but it isn't as imposing as a Cadillac Escalade or Range Rover, nor is it as tasteful as a Mercedes-Benz GL450 or Audi Q7. Worse, it looks very similar to the Ford Expedition with which it shares many components.

It's in the Navigator's interior that age becomes a bigger problem. Materials are far from opulent, and a Navigator makes do with a relatively small screen and few advanced features like lane departure warning, around-view monitors or trick off-road controls. At least what's there is relatively easy to use -- and features like SYNC voice recognition, navigation, HD radio and power-deploying running boards are all standard equipment. Another advantage: The third-row is usable for adults and folds flat with power-assist.

Under the Hood

The only engine is a 5.4-liter V8 with 310 horsepower -- it's outdated, underpowered and not that economical at 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway. The six-speed transmission is, likewise, outclassed by eight-speed gearboxes from many competitors.

Rear-wheel drive is standard, while a four-wheel drive system is an option. Towing capability is up to 9,000 pounds.

Performance

The truck-based underpinnings of the Navigator hurt its maneuverability, and it isn't more spacious than unibody competitors. In addition to a bouncy ride and vague steering, it doesn't handle with much confidence and is ultimately more of a chore to drive than any luxury vehicle should be.
