2010 Lincoln Navigator


(from Lincoln Press Release)  2010 Navigator Overview


•Standard Trailer Sway Control joins AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) for improved confidence while towing
•SYNC® and SIRIUS Travel Link™ help 2010 Navigator owners stay connected using voice-activated technologies
•Standard MyKey™ allows Navigator owners to limit top speed, radio volume even when they're not in the vehicle

Lincoln Navigator combines classic Lincoln design and amenities with the functionality full-size SUV customers demand. For 2010, Navigator's exclusive AdvanceTrac with RSC is joined by standard Trailer Sway Control.

Trailer Sway Control works in conjunction with AdvanceTrac with RSC to determine from the yaw motion of the vehicle if the trailer is swaying and takes measures – such as applying precise braking or reduced engine torque – to help bring both vehicle and trailer under control.

Unlike competitive systems, AdvanceTrac with RSC utilizes a second gyroscopic roll rate sensor to determine the vehicle's body roll angle and roll rate. If the unique roll rate sensor detects a significant roll angle, the system applies additional countermeasures – such as applying brakes to one or more wheels or reducing engine power – to enhance vehicle rollover resistance.

In the event of an accident, Navigator is equipped with the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™, where the horn and emergency flashers are activated in an airbag deployment event. Other safety features include Safety Canopy® side-curtain air bags with rollover detection and dual-stage front air bags that deploy with varying power based on crash severity, the driver’s seat position and safety-belt usage. Front seat-mounted side air bags provide enhanced protection in the event of a side impact, while SYNC with 911 Assist can call for help.

Refinements in Technology and Comfort

For 2010, the luxurious Lincoln Navigator and Navigator L come with the convenience of standard SYNC voice-activated communications and entertainment. More than just hands-free calling, SYNC brings 911 Assist, Vehicle Health Reports, and Traffic, Directions & Information services to the Navigator, all with a pre-paid three-year subscription included for the original vehicle owner (SYNC: Traffic, Directions & Information not available with the optional navigation system).

Also available is a voice-activated navigation system with SIRIUS Travel Link that lets customers access to up-to-the-minute information and entertainment content through the vehicle’s navigation system. The information includes current gas prices from an estimated 120,000 filling stations, up-to-the-minute traffic information for 78 markets, weather conditions, sports scores and movie listings.

To help encourage safer teen driving, Lincoln Navigator for 2010 features the MyKey system. Parents simply program the key through the vehicle message center to incorporate features such as:

•Limited top speed of 80 mph
•AdvanceTrac with RSC cannot be deactivated
•Audio system volume limited to 44 percent of maximum volume
•A speed alert chime at 45, 55 and 65 mph

Navigator now features standard power-deployable running boards permitting easy ingress and egress. Premium leather-trimmed seats with an inset Lincoln star on the front headrests complement either the standard exterior or the monochrome exterior package.

Other standard features include the Easy Fuel™ capless fuel-filler system, anti-theft perimeter alarm system, second-row heated seats and rain sensing wipers that use an advanced optical sensing system to detect how hard rain or snow is falling, then determine when to activate windshield wipers and how fast to run the wiper motor.

As Powerful as it is Luxurious

Navigator is powered by a 5.4-liter V-8 engine featuring Flex Fuel (FFV) capability to give owners more options at the pump. With three valves per cylinder and variable cam timing, the 5.4-liter engine delivers a balance of refinement and muscle. Rated at 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque, Navigator can tow up to 9,200 pounds when properly equipped.

Navigator's powerful engine is paired with a standard six-speed automatic transmission. With a wide 6.02:1 gear ratio and two overdrive gears (fifth and sixth), the six-speed transmission has smaller steps between gears than a typical four-speed automatic and offers improved shift quality, faster acceleration and improved fuel economy.
