Lincoln redesigned its full-size sport utility vehicle for 2003, moving the Navigator away from its pickup-truck origins. Chassis modifications promised to lessen the trucklike ride that the previous model had exhibited. Lincoln claimed several industry firsts as options, including a power-folding third-row seat and power-extendable running boards, which ease entry and exit. Although the Navigator is essentially a dressed-up Ford Expedition, the 2005 model gained a six-speed-automatic transmission ? versus the Expedition's four-speed automatic ? that promised improved smoothness when shifting. A new 5.4-liter V-8 with three valves per cylinder delivered the same 300 horsepower as before, but torque output increased. AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control became standard on all Navigators. Rear- and four-wheel-drive Navigators are offered in Luxury and Ultimate trim levels. Current models feature a four-wheel-independent suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. Lincoln dropped its Aviator after 2005, making the Navigator the company's sole SUV. An Elite Package, available on the Ultimate trim level, includes 18-inch chrome wheels, a navigation system, THX-Certified audio, high-intensity-discharge headlights, a rear-seat entertainment system, power running boards and a heavy-duty trailer-towing package.
