2013 Lincoln Navigator Overview
The 2013 Lincoln Navigator continues to be one of the biggest and boldest SUVs on the road–not just because of its large, boxy proportions, but also thanks to its massive chrome grille, large xenon headlamps, and numerous chrome flourishes. It’s a massive, rugged presence that’ll have many turning their heads.
2013 Lincoln Navigator Performance
The 2013 Lincoln Navigator is as impressive under the hood as it is outside of it, with a massive 5.4-liter V8 delivering 310 horsepower and up to 365 pound-feet of torque to either two wheels or all wheels, depending on preference, via a six-speed automatic transmission. At low speeds on the 4WD models, the system can switch the engine’s electronic throttle control to a special off-road calibration to optimize torque management in low-grip situations. It can also tow up to 9,000 pounds.
2013 Lincoln Navigator Efficiency
The 2013 Lincoln Navigator is not very fuel efficient. EPA fuel economy estimates range between 16 mpg combined (14 mpg city/20 mpg highway) on the 2WD model and 13/18/15 on the AWD model. But with an engine that beefy, it’s no surprise it gulps so much fuel.
2013 Lincoln Navigator Interior
The 2013 Lincoln Navigator features an impressively long list of standard premium amenities and quality. These include 10-way power-adjustable front seats with heating and cooling, heated second-row seats, a rearview camera, power-adjustable pedals, voice-activated activation, a 14-speaker THX II-certified audio system, and much, much more. Passengers are simply bathed in luxury.
2013 Lincoln Navigator Safety
The 2013 Lincoln Navigator comes standard with antilock disc brakes, traction control, stability control with rollover sensor, front-seat side airbags, three-row side curtain airbags, and a post-crash alert system. It received four out of five stars for overall protection in government crash tests as well as the highest possible rating of “Good” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in frontal-offset, side, and roof strength tests.
