2022 Lincoln Navigator Black Label Review & Test Drive

The new Navigator has impressed me so much that I d think about a purchase just if it would fit in the garage bay where our new Lincoln Aviator lives with just a number of inches of room to spare– something to be mindful of with the new Navigator and a lot more so with the long-wheelbase variation, which costs an additional $3,045.

Driving Character
Theres still a sensation that youre browsing a big automobile– pun planned. The steering wheel rack has a good artificial-feeling weight to it however needs a number of turns from lock to lock, again, reminding you that youre driving among the biggest production traveler lorries on the road. However, theres an invited sense of simple driving where the Navigator doesnt challenge the driver to be worried when steering or parking, partly thanks to the high-resolution 360-degree camera system and a wide variety of active safety functions helping to keep an eye on the roadway. Additionally, the most significant change is the addition of the hands-free driver-assist system called ActiveGlide, which is basically a renaming of Fords BlueCruise.
Move your head for too long or end up being distracted and the ActiveGlide system and the system will alert you to gain back attention or control of the vehicle. The system appears to work effortlessly however my disappointment is that it didnt work on lots of local highways in my location, just significant Interstate roadways.
