While not a "Ford" in name, the Lincoln Navigator is every bit a Ford truck in reality. It’s one of the few remaining body-on-frame SUVs still sticking around. That might make it less popular than than the new unibody SUV’s that Ford’s been touting recently, but it’s got one thing that they don’t: longevity.
Truth of the matter is that it’s a truck. With the proper maintenance it’ll last about as long as one.
Jeff Mohr, owner of Super Bumper, just logged his 400,000th mile in his 1999 Navigator. He’s probably the exception when it comes to pure usage. He logs over 30,000 miles a year. Still, that just makes it more impressive that he’s been able to hit such a serious milestone in Ford. People are always raving about Toyota’s durability, so it’s nice for Ford fans to have a feather to stick in their hats.
