The Lincoln Navigator is an American made full size luxury SUV which has been produced by the Ford Motor Company and sold under the Lincoln brand name since 1998. The vehicle competes directly with other large luxury SUVs like the Cadillac Escalade and GMC Denali Series.
The 2010 automobile comes standard with a 5.4 liter engine which produces 300 horsepower. The eight cylinder engine also produces 365 pound feet of torque at 3,750 revolutions per minute. The Lincoln Navigator comes standard with a six speed automatic transmission. The automobile does not have an overly powerful engine, but it still has very good towing capacity of 9,000 pounds.
To help with fuel costs, the 2010 automobile engine comes with flexible fuel capacity. Flexible fuel cars can run on both regular gasoline as well as gasoline blended with ethanol or other gases.
Most reviews of the 2010 automobile say the engine within the Navigator is not sufficient when compared to other cars in its class. The Navigator’s main competition of for American made SUVs is the Cadillac Escalade, which comes with a much more powerful engine than the 300 horsepower produced by the Navigator. One benefit of the Lincoln Navigator over the more powerful Escalade is that fuel efficiency is greater.
The 2010 automobile is the fourth Navigator produced in the SUV’s third generation. The engine options within this Navigator remain unchanged since the car was first introduced in 1998. The flex fuel engine option was first introduced in 2008, but has become standard with the 2010 automobile.
