Lincoln Navigator Models and Navigator History

The introduction of the Navigator by Lincoln in 1998 marked a historical moment in the carmakers history: it was the first time it ventured into the truck or SUV market. The model was based upon the popular Expedition by Ford, and was powered by a very capable 5.4-liter, SOHC V8 engine that could deliver 230 horsepower, featuring amenities like air suspension and lighted running boards amongst hundreds of others. The 1999 model year offered some slight revisions, including more horsepower, hands-free cellphone options and a roller-mounted and removable third-row, amongst others.


For 2000, the Navigator offered an integrated GPS system, reverse parking sensors and the side-impact airbags were made standard. Minor changes were made to the interior and exterior style, and climate-controlled seats were offered as an optional add-on. In 2001, climate control was offered as standard equipment and child-seat anchors were introduced. Lincoln also rolled out their popular 36-month included maintenance program. The only changes for 2002 was the addition of the Limited Edition package.


In 2003, the Navigator rolled into dealerships with updated suspension, newer technologies and lots more optional upgrades. The 2004 Navigator offered only two trims: Luxury and Ultimate. A tire-pressure monitoring system was made standard as was a Roll Stability Control (in the Advance Trac system). No significant changes were made for the 2005 and 2006 model years. But in 2007, the SUV offered a brand-new body style, a larger and chromed front grille, redesigned tail lamps, and also boasted power-folding third-row seating, new independent suspension and plenty of new options. During this year, Lincoln began offering a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty, too. In 2008, only one trim level would be offered and many previous options, like cooled and heated seats, became standard features. The backup camera was finally introduced, much to the joy of critics. Sync multimedia was offered in 2009 as a standard feature, alongside of the backup camera and heated seats in the second-row. The engine gained an additional 10 horsepower, and the GPS system now came with a hard drive.


In 2010, the Navigator boasted the new MyKey synch system and made leather upholstery a standard feature. A 110-volt AC power outlet and rear DVD system were offered as new options for the 2011 model year. The only major changes for 2012 was the addition of the blind-spot mirrors and minor updates to the Synch system. The Navigator coasted through 2013 and 2014 with no major changes.
