One of the six available Lincoln Drive modes, slippery, is seen on the information screen behind the steering wheel.

Lincoln Drive Modes

Satisfy both your desire for control and need for excitement with the simple twist of a dial. From Slippery to Conserve, the Lincoln Navigator offers six distinct selectable drive modes for confidence, exhilaration and control in a wide variety of driving conditions. Each mode has a number of calculated settings that tune the vehicle, including the available adaptive suspension, shift points, 4x2 vs. 4x4 drive lines, information displays and more — and it all happens with the simple twist of a knob.

Adaptive Suspension*

Road conditions vary and, for smooth and confident driving, your suspension should too. The adaptive suspension controls the up-and-down movement of the wheels when driving on uneven surfaces and over potholes. This system, controlled by the six selectable Lincoln Drive Modes, helps decrease the stress of harsh outside driving situations without compromising the comfort within.

Aluminum Body

The all-aluminum-alloy body of the Lincoln Navigator gives new meaning to the phrase “less is more.” The reduced weight from aluminum allows Navigator to be enriched with cutting-edge features that enhance comfort, quietness and the driving experience.

Four-Wheel Drive*

Whether it’s on the road or off, 4x4 capability offers true mastery of your journey. The Navigator’s 4x4 powertrain unlocks and deftly applies the Twin-Turbocharged engine’s 450 horsepower** and 510 lb.-ft. of torque,** making rugged driving conditions easily traversed. Plus, by adding available Hill Descent ControlTM and tow hooks, trying situations will be easily overcome.
**Horsepower and torque ratings achieved using 93-octane fuel.
