Best 7 Passenger Vehicles: #7 2012 Lincoln Navigator
The 2012 Lincoln Navigator puts a luxury face on the same basic platform used by the Ford Expedition. As such, the Lincoln Navigator shares many of the same characteristics when taken off the pavement and into the rough stuff. Important differences between the two more than 7 seater vehicles include a heaping helping of luxury gear in the Navigator, with features such as power-folding running boards (to keep from getting caught on ruts, rocks, or ledges) and a navigation system coming standard. Four-wheel drive is available with the SUV, which also cribs its 310 horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 and six-speed automatic transmission from the Expedition.
