2009 Lincoln Navigator Sport Utility

Benefits of Driving a 2009 Lincoln Navigator Sport Utility

The Navigator is closely related to the Ford Expedition but offers a showier appearance inside and out. It also offers many luxury and high-tech options, which appeal to those looking for a luxurious, tow-friendly SUV that can also haul a large family in top comfort. The Navigator also gets gas mileage that's similar to smaller luxury vehicles. The Navigator L provides the most passenger space, with an easier-to-reach third row and additional cargo space in back.

What's new for 2009?

A new Monochrome Appearance Package is new for 2009, and there are several other appealing new features. Sirius Travel Link, a subscription-based information service that's integrated with the navigation system, is now available, Front Park Assist, a capless fueling system, rain-sensing wipers, heated second-row seats and a rear-view camera system are all now on the standard-equipment list. The Sync system, which allows a voice-activated hands-free interface with cellphones, PDAs and music players is also new for 2009.

Model Strengths

  • Unsurpassed luxury
  • high technology feature list
  • towing and hauling capability
  • roomy seating

Model Review

The Navigator is sold in just two models -- Navigator and Navigator L -- and both of them are offered with a choice of rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Features and powertrains between the two models are similar, but the Navigator L is about 15 inches longer than the standard-length Navigator.

TheCarConnection.com's editors drive the new Lincoln Navigator in order to pass along their expert opinion; this is supplemented with highlights of some of the Web's most informative reviews, gathered by TheCarConnection.com, to help you make the best decision.

The Lincoln Navigator has been on sale now for more than a decade, and it's maintained its stature as a luxury SUV through major redesigns and minor annual upgrades.

The two 2009 Lincoln Navigator models differ in length by 14.7 inches. The additional length of the L model gains the Navigator L 24.5 cubic feet more storage space (42.7 cubic feet. vs. 18.2 cubic feet). With both the second- and third-row seats folded, the standard Navigator boasts 103.5 cubic feet of cargo space, while the L model ups that to a cavernous 128.2 cubic feet.

Both 2009 Lincoln Navigator models are powered by a 300-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 and driven by a six-speed automatic transmission in either 4x2 or 4x4 configurations. The Navigator's maximum tow rating is an impressive 9,100 pounds.

The 2009 Navigator's handling is secure, but this isn't a truck that likes hustling. The engine provides good power, and the six-speed automatic responds quickly with downshifts, but compared to other V-8 engines in the class, the Ford-sourced 5.4-liter isn't overly impressive for the Navigator's 6,200-pound curb weight. The six-speed automatic does make the 2009 Lincoln Navigator a pleasant cruiser, helping to keep engine speed down at interstate speeds. The four-wheel independent suspension provides a smooth ride, but there's a fair amount of roll in corners.

The powertrain in the 2009 Lincoln Navigator is smooth, though, and it contributes to the quietness of the comfortable interior. The interior's design, function, and comfort are good, and they're much more upscale than the Ford Expedition. The Lincoln-style gauges are a fun throwback, and even the third-row seats are comfortable. When not needed, the power-fold feature on those seats is especially convenient. As one editor of TheCarConnection.com recently experienced, cargo that lies beyond the reach of one's arm can be "slid" toward the tailgate's opening by unfolding the third-row seat; as the seat raises itself, the cargo shifts rearward.

The 2009 Lincoln Navigator ups the ante by simplifying the Navigator's packaging and turning many of last year's options into standard equipment on both the Navigator and its slightly longer stablemate, the Navigator L. New comfort and convenience features that are now standard on the Navigator include a rearview camera system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, EasyFuel capless fuel fill, Front Park Assist, Lincoln SYNC, and heated second-row seats.

Lincoln's next-generation, voice-activated navigation system and the Sirius Travel Link are now available, as is a new limited edition appearance package, the Monochrome Appearance Package. The new navigation system, working through the Sirius Satellite Radio network, provides Navigator occupants coast-to-coast access to information and entertainment such as real-time traffic data, weather reports, fuel options sorted by price or distance, major league pro and college sports, as well as movie listings from more than 4,500 theaters. The new 2009 Monochrome Limited Edition Package includes features such as Ebony wood trim, Stone or Camel seats with black leather inserts and black piping, and a stitched Lincoln logo on each headrest. On the outside, the package features unique badging, body-color accents, and power folding heated memory mirrors with puddle lamps.

Safety-wise, the 2009 Lincoln Navigator performs very well in government front and side crash tests. Additionally, Stability Roll Control and other dynamic safety equipment are standard.


The Bottom Line:

The 2009 Lincoln Navigator is a well-rounded, full-size SUV offering both luxury and performance.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Lincoln Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

6 years or 100,000 miles comprehensive limited warranty coverage from the original in-service date

Rental Reimbursement $45/day

Age/Mileage Eligibility 6 model years or newer / less than 60,000 miles
Lease Term Certified Yes
