2022 Lincoln Navigator Black Label Review & Test Drive

The new Navigator has impressed me a lot that I d consider a purchase only if it would suit the garage bay where our brand-new Lincoln Aviator resides with only a number of inches of room to spare– something to be conscious of with the brand-new Navigator and much more so with the long-wheelbase version, which costs an extra $3,045.

However, theres an invited sense of simple driving where the Navigator does not challenge the driver to be stressed when navigating or parking, partially thanks to the high-resolution 360-degree cam system and a wide variety of active security functions helping to keep track of the road. Additionally, the most significant modification is the addition of the hands-free driver-assist system dubbed ActiveGlide, which is basically a renaming of Fords BlueCruise.
Move your head for too long or become distracted and the ActiveGlide system and the system will signal you to gain back attention or control of the vehicle. The system appears to work flawlessly but my frustration is that it didnt work on many local highways in my area, just significant Interstate roads.
