2014 Lincoln Navigator Review

The 2014 Lincoln Navigator has a low ranking because of its anemic engine performance, oafish handling, poor safety scores, and somewhat outdated cabin. On the plus side, it has decent reliability and a low cost of ownership for its class. 

Pros & Cons

  • Comfortable ride quality
  • Reasonable ownership costs
  • Weak engine
  • Low safety scores
  • Outdated cabin quality and features

2014 Lincoln Navigator Overview

Is the 2014 Lincoln Navigator a Good Used SUV?

Among 2014 luxury large SUVs, you likely won't find a vehicle with lower purchase prices and ownership costs than the Navigator. This SUV also offers a breadth of passenger and cargo space, making it a decent buy for those on a budget who need lots of room. The Navigator's underpowered engine and aging interior design hold it back compared to rival vehicles.

Used 2014 Lincoln Navigator Performance and Interior

The 2014 Lincoln Navigator is powered by a 310-horsepower V8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Compared to other large SUVs that have stronger V8s, the Navigator can feel sluggish when accelerating. This is especially true when the vehicle is loaded with people or cargo. Once you get going, though, you'll have sufficient power for cruising or passing others at high speeds. With rear-wheel drive, the Navigator gets an estimated 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway; with four-wheel drive, it manages 13/18 mpg city/highway.

The Navigator features a truck-based body-on-frame construction, which usually means a stiff ride and dubious handling. However, this SUV sops up most bumps in the road and delivers a comfortable and luxurious ride quality. There is some body lean around turns, and the Navigator's large size can make it hard to maneuver.

The Navigator seats up to eight. It has standard leather upholstery, a second-row bench or bucket seats, and a power-folding third-row bench. All models include heated and cooled 10-way power-adjustable front seats, as well as heated second-row seats. There is ample space and comfort for passengers no matter where they sit, even in the last row. The Navigator has full sets of LATCH child-seat connections for all second-row seats and a tether anchor for the third-row middle seat. Cargo space is great for a large SUV, at up to 103.3 cubic feet in the base model and 128.2 cubic feet in the Navigator L long-wheelbase variant.

The 2014 Navigator is part of a generation that began in 2007. Given the generation’s length, the Navigator doesn't stack up well to the rest of the class. Some cabin materials are below the quality you'd expect from a luxury vehicle, and the SUV's technologies aren’t as modern or user-friendly as those in some rivals. Standard features in the 2014 Navigator include dual-zone automatic climate control, a 14-speaker surround-sound audio system, HD Radio, a USB port, satellite radio, a voice-activated navigation system, the SYNC infotainment system, trailer-sway control, a rearview camera, and parking sensors. Available features include a moonroof, remote start, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.

Should I Consider Another Used Navigator?

The 2014 Lincoln Navigator is part of the SUV's third generation, which spans the 2007 through 2017 model years. The SUV has been fully redesigned for 2018. There were few notable changes to the couple of years prior to 2014, so you can likely save money and get a similar vehicle by shopping for an older version.

Which Used Lincoln Navigator Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Lincoln Navigator is available in two trim levels: Navigator and long-wheelbase Navigator L. The main difference between these two is the L's greatly expanded cargo volume. You also have the option of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Most features come standard, so you won't have to do much hunting unless you're looking for a moonroof or DVD system. Also note that the Navigator comes with second-row bucket or bench seats, which affect the passenger capacity and room.

A certified pre-owned Navigator may also be a good fit. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Lincoln extends its original new-car warranty to six years or 100,000 miles. Lincoln puts its CPO vehicles through a 200-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Lincoln warranty page carefully.

2014 Lincoln Navigator and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Lincoln Navigator or 2014 Cadillac Escalade?

The 2014 Cadillac Escalade ranks highly among luxury large SUVs, mainly because of its high reliability score. That's not its only positive, though – the Caddy boasts a strong V8 engine that gets it moving quickly, paired with a comfortable ride quality. Inside, the Escalade features an upscale cabin with plenty of quality materials; the extended ESV model offers the most third-row legroom. Average prices for the Cadillac can run up to about $10,000 more than the Lincoln, but the Escalade is worth the money if your budget allows.

Which Is Better: 2014 Lincoln Navigator or 2014 Ford Expedition?

The 2014 Ford Expedition is a close corporate relative of the Navigator. These SUVs share some of the same faults, like a weak V8 engine. You'll likely save money by shopping for an Expedition, as its top-end price is about the same as the Navigator’s starting price. However, the low-trim Expedition is slim on features, and models across the lineup have second-rate materials. The Ford also gets a below-average reliability score, while the Lincoln's is above average. Overall, the Lincoln is the better pick.

Which Is Better: 2014 Lincoln Navigator or 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class?

You'll pay a lot for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, but you’ll get a lot in return. With four available turbocharged engines, ranging from an efficient diesel to performance V8s, the GL-Class doesn’t want for much under the hood. It also features an elegant cabin with a straightforward infotainment system. Unlike some rivals, including the Navigator, the GL-Class is available with a whole host of driver assistance features, such as a drowsiness monitor, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and a 360-degree camera.
