2019 Lincoln Navigator Black Label

This is no soccer mom-mobile. Navigator excelled in several categories, including handling, design, and technology.

The 2019 Lincoln Navigator nabbed top honors from Good Housekeeping‘s “2019 Best New Car Awards.” After undergoing extensive testing over 5,000 miles, editors found that the Navigator earned the “Best Luxury Large SUV” award. Obviously its style was impossible to ignore, but the magazine found that when it came to performance, Lincoln was, well, badass.

The 2019 Navigator not only has sleek high-end styling, but the design and functionality was well thought out and executed beautifully.

“We were impressed by the amount of legroom in the second and third rows, a whopping 13 cupholders and tons of storage both for passengers and in the cargo area,” said Rachel Rothman, Good Housekeeping chief technologist and engineering director.

The Navigator’s interior has much to offer in terms of comfort and style. Sure, it can be a family car, but can also just be a cool roomy ride that offers high-end comfort and sweet handling.

The Perfect Position seats were a hit with the testers. “If you want the ultimate upgrade for long road trips, you can even get 30-way massaging front seats,” added Laurie Jennings, Good Housekeeping Institute director and lead consumer tester.

We’re hardly surprised, Lincoln has been earning raves among critics, and selling big time. Lincoln’s first-quarter sales for 2019 gave Ford a huge boost, with an impressive 11.2 % gain.

We’ve always been Lincoln fans, and the Navigator not only looks great, but has solid towing capability, produces 450 hp, and utilizes some of the most high-tech features.

“This is the best Lincoln in a while,” says Good Housekeeping. “The Navigator is equal parts total utility vehicle and luxe family ride.”
