The 2011 Lincoln Navigator, the well-to-do cousin of the Ford Expedition, features a couple of tweaks as it continues to set itself up as a rival to the Cadillac Escalade in the large luxury sports utility vehicle market.
Ford, which owns Lincoln, strives to tone down the Navigator’s reputation as a gas-hungry rig with changes that are expected to carry over to some of its other models, including the Ford F-150 truck. Powered by a 5.4-liter V8 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, the Navigator puts out 300 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. Ford engineers developed a technology that regulates gas consumption by using aggressive deceleration fuel shut-off, requiring no extra effort by the driver and saving on fuel.
The Navigator’s EPA-estimated fuel efficiency is expected to improve. Last year, the Navigator was pegged to get 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway in rear-wheel-drive versions. The engine burns either E85-ethanol fuel or unleaded gas.

Lincoln also plans to offer a 4.4-liter V8 diesel as an option in the 2011 Navigator in another nod to improved gas mileage. That engine is similar to a 3.6-liter turbodiesel used in European Jaguars and Land Rovers, and estimates are that it, besides generating almost 10 percent more horsepower, will increase fuel efficiency by another 20 percent.
As usual, the 2011 Navigator will be packed with high-end standard fare. Heated and cooled front seats, 18-inch machined aluminum wheels, a rear-view camera, power liftgate, rain-sensing wipers, perimeter anti-theft alarm and a 14-speaker audio system with Sirius satellite radio are a few of the items on the list. The navigation system uses the Sirius Travel Link program, which provides access to all sorts of information, from traffic data to weather reports to fuel options. Ford’s MyKey technology lets parents limit the vehicle’s speed and speaker volume.
