Based on the latest Ford Expedition, and using underpinnings derived from the Ford F-150 pickup truck, the new Navigator has an aluminium body that's said to be around 90kg lighter than the old model's.

Motivation comes from a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine with 336kW of power, and tied to a 10-speed automatic transmission. This engine is probably shared with the F-150 Raptor, which boasts 691Nm of torque.


Among the SUV's available features are ambient interior lighting, an illuminated grille badge, a panoramic roof, speed-sensitive adaptive headlights, a cargo management system for the boot, wireless phone charging, 12.0-inch configurable instrument display, adaptive cruise control, surround view camera system, and trailer backup assist.

As far as entertainment goes, the Navigator can be had with 10.0-inch screens built into the front seat backs, and a 20-speaker Revel Ultima sound system. Wi-Fi connectivity, a Sync 3 infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are all standard.

Throughout the cabin there are six USB ports, four 12V outlets, and a single 110V plug.

While the Navigator is a competitor for the Cadillac Escalade, it trails far behind its GM rival. Last year, 39,092 Escalades were sold throughout the US, compared to just 10,421 Navigators.
