  Lincoln (automobile) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As recently as 1998 Lincoln was the best-selling luxury brand in the United States, helped by the massive success of the Navigator SUV, and a redesign of the Town Car and Continental.
Leland named the brand after his longtime hero Abraham Lincoln, for whom he had voted in 1860 in the first presidential elections he was eligible for.
A 1969 Lincoln was used by Nixon and a 1972 Lincoln used by Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan and Bush.

 Review - LINCOLN NAVIGATOR
When the Lincoln Navigator entered the marketplace in 1997 as the first full-sized American luxury sport utility vehicle it was little more than an optioned-out Ford Expedition.
The Navigator was completely redesigned for the 2003 model year addressing most of the truck’s initial shortcomings.
The Navigator is comfortable and spacious and gives its passengers a sense of refinement with brushed aluminum trim, splashes of dashboard walnut, and excellent-feeling leather surfaces.

 1999 Lincoln Navigator - The Car Connection
Despite the full-size dimensions with a wheelbase extended to 3 yards and an overall length of 17 feet, the Navigator acts lively on pavement and is easy to maneuver in traffic or even in a crowded parking lot.
The big Lincoln wagon rides on the chassis of the Ford full-size F-150 pickup truck and it is a direct descendant of the Ford Expedition wagon, with even more fancy fittings.
The original single-cam and two-valve 5.4-liter V-8 engine, aboard when Navigator debuted as a 1998 model, has been replaced with a sophisticated dual-cam and four-valve 5.4-liter V-8 that soars to 300 hp at 5000 rpm and exerts massive torque to 360 lb-ft at 3000 rpm.

 2003 Lincoln Navigator - The Car Connection
It seemed like an odd invitation: test-drive the new, 2003 Lincoln Navigator in the hill country that surrounds Santa Barbara, Calif. At best, it seemed an opportunity to test the effectiveness of heavy-duty Dramamine as we weaved and wallowed through the twists and turns of a beautiful section of country better suited to sports cars.
In the Lincoln's defense, torque comes on smooth and fast and the gap is less than it might seem on paper.
The Navigator's ergonomics are, on the whole, vastly improved, yet the poorly lit tripometer is positioned where it's likely to be obscured by your hand on the steering wheel.

 Research a New Car - 2002 Lincoln Navigator

The 2002 Lincoln Navigator is positioned as the premium leader in sport ut ility vehicles.
Parking the Navigator requires a commensurately large piece of pavement, though the process is assisted nicely by the optional Reverse Sensing System that warns of approaching obstacles.

Navigator's monotube shock absorbers are more tunable and responsive to small changes in amplitude and velocity than the previous model’s conventional twin-tube dampers.

 Motor Trend: 2003 Lincoln Navigator   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
It was a surprise that Lincoln chose the tight and twisty backroads of sleepy Santa Barbara, California, to begin the first drive of the luxurious new 2003 Navigator, rather than an expansive horse ranch or Beverly Hills country club.
To achieve this new level of refinement, the Navigator has moved to a fully boxed hydroformed frame that is 70 percent torsionally stiffer than last year's more traditional frame for reduced noise, vibration, and harshness, even on rough and uneven road surfaces.
Navigator replaces its previous recirculating ball system with a carefully tuned rack-and-pinion setup for friction-free steering with smooth transitions and low effort around town, completing the dynamics transformation.

My brakes started grinding on my Navigator at 24,000 miles, which was a shock to me, since my 99 Nav went 65,000 miles on the original brakes linings.
Not Lincolns, but some cars it is. When I picked up the car, Ford stepped up and covered it 100%, no questions asked.
And navigation took us right to the front door of the little cabin we had rented.

 Car Review: 2005 Lincoln Navigator 2WD
I must confess that the Lincoln Navigator 2WD is a car I would have chosen for a trip up and down the spine of Arizona.
The Lincoln was ideal for the paved portion and we had a lot of fun driving along there.
We didn't try the Navigator on the dirt portion, particularly since it was not 4WD and it was a large vehicle for the rather narrow road.

"Navigator has proven to be popular with people who wear the latest in urban fashion, the most modern hairstyle, the coolest shoes and the flashiest jewelry, because they also want the best in stylish transportation," said Patrick Schiavone, Truck and SUV design director.
The Navigator is also customized with a unique rear center console that houses a video game system, and a refreshment center complete with a refrigerator, ice bucket, and drink/food warmer.
The first is a white monochromatic Navigator with gold exterior accents, a specialized grille, chrome roll tip exhaust, and low profile 22-inch chrome wheels with glinting gold touches and the second is another fl monochromatic Navigator featuring tinted windows, specialized grille, roll tip chrome exhaust, and low profile 22-inch dub spinner wheels.

The Lincoln Navigator is definitely not a mini-moke and it weighs in at over 5500 pounds.
As the Navigator is driven along, the system levels the ride so that it maintains a constant height and it can also be used to raise the ride height an additional inch if the driver decides to take a short cut up to the estate house.
MATT - Lincoln is also bringing out a pickup version of the Navigator next year, Dad and it's basically an SUV with a bed in place of the third-row seats.

Navigator comes standard with special protection in the form of front air bags for the driver and front passenger, which deploy in certain frontal collisions to minimize the risk of serious injury.
Trucks are still a new concept for the folks at Lincoln, but their cure for excess automotive flab is as Yankee traditional as the old Green Bay sweep: more power.
A brief stint behind the wheel of a preproduction '99 Navigator was enough to convince us that the new engine, which will initially, at least, be exclusive to Lincoln, lends a tangible increase in giddyap to this pavement Percheron.

 Adrants » Lincoln Goes For Bike Messenger Street Cred Without Permission
This Lincoln Navigator ad on page 41 of last Sunday's New York Times Magazine, according to bike racer, former bike messenger and Animal New York Publisher Bucky Turco, uses bike messenger's names, without permission, to promote the vehicle by attempting to create a relationship between messengers and SUVs.
Lincoln made a mistake, they have to pay lawyers like everyone else and since they didn't listen the first, well-documented time that they made this mistake they are going to have to pay their lawyers far more than that ad will ever generate whether they win or lose and lose is far more likely.
When Lincoln says "live well" they mean to stop buying their cars and get a bicycle and excersize you fat bastards.

 Car and Driver - 2003 Lincoln Navigator - June 2002
So does luxury, and when you join size and luxury, you get the Lincoln Navigator, which, since its launch as a '98 model, has become a common fixture in America's high-end subdivisions.
What you see on these pages is Lincoln's completely redesigned, second-generation Navigator, charged with the mission of maintaining Lincoln's share in the market it had largely created.
From the outside, the new Navigator is the spit and image of the original, with the same profile, the same huge chrome-surround grille, and the same butch-looking front valance.

 King of the Hill: Cadillac Escalade vs. Lincoln Navigator   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Lincoln plans to differentiate the two much in the same way GM separated the Yukon/Escalade twins this year, with brand-specific interiors and hardware such as independent rear suspension in the Lincoln version of the SUV.
The Lincoln's air suspension, once innovative (air shocks up front, air springs out back), is now out-teched and unable to compete with the Caddy's trick electronic setup.
Yet the Lincoln is optionally equipped with an AWD system called Control-Trac that, in "A4WD" mode, continually varies front-to-rear torque distribution up to a 50/50 split.
