2015 Lincoln Navigator Review

The 2015 Lincoln Navigator gives you an abundance of cargo and cabin space, a mighty towing capacity, and a brawny engine. Its awkward handling and subpar cabin materials, however, push it to the middle of the luxury large SUV class. 

Pros & Cons


  • Spacious third row
  • Great towing capacity
  • Brisk acceleration



  • Awkward handling
  • Inferior interior plastics
  • Difficult-to-use infotainment system


2015 Lincoln Navigator Overview

Is the 2015 Lincoln Navigator a Good Used SUV?

If you’re shopping for an SUV with plenty of space, the 2015 Lincoln Navigator may suit your needs. It offers generous cargo space and plenty of room in all three rows, which can’t be said of many rivals. It also has a muscular V6 engine and a hearty towing capacity. However, it has some subpar cabin materials for a luxury-class vehicle, and its bulky handling makes it difficult to drive.

Used 2015 Lincoln Navigator Performance and Interior

The 2015 Lincoln Navigator is powered by twin-turbocharged V6 engine that generates 380 horsepower and provides strong acceleration for highway merging and passing. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. According to the EPA, the rear-wheel-drive 2015 Navigator achieves 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, which is impressive for an SUV of its size. The Lincoln Navigator can also haul plenty of stuff with its above-average 9,000-pound towing capacity. The Navigator’s handling is clunky, even for a large SUV. However, an available adaptive suspension system can customize the ride, allowing you to choose between Normal, Comfort, and Sport settings.

The 3-row 2015 Lincoln Navigator features supple leather upholstery and attractive wood trim, though the dashboard and doors contain some unsuitable plastic panels that somewhat cheapen the cabin. The 2015 Navigator comes standard with second-row bucket seats, and a second-row bench seat increases seating capacity from seven to eight. First- and second-row seats are spacious and comfortable, and the third row offers more room and comfort than those of most competing SUVs. The Navigator has impressive cargo space for the class, with a maximum 103.3 cubic feet in the base model and 128.2 cubic feet in the Navigator L extended-wheelbase model.

Standard features in the 2015 Lincoln Navigator include navigation, two USB ports, Bluetooth, a dual-zone automatic climate control, and MyKey, which allows parents to set limits on audio volume and vehicle speed. Also standard is Lincoln’s voice-activated SYNC system and the 8-inch touch-screen MyLincoln Touch infotainment system. The SYNC system can be slow, and its complicated buttons and voice commands take some time to master.

Should I Consider Another Used Navigator?

The 2015 Lincoln Navigator is part of the SUV's third generation, which began with the 2007 model and ended with the 2017 model. While you could potentially save money by purchasing an earlier Navigator model, the 2015 model may be worth the extra cost, as it was refreshed and features some of the SUV’s latest technology.

Which Used Lincoln Navigator Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Lincoln Navigator comes in two trims: Select and Reserve. The Navigator L, an extended-wheelbase model, is also available, adding nearly 16 inches in overall length. All models come with a twin-turbocharged V6 engine and rear-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive is available.

The Lincoln Navigator Select comes standard with adaptive headlamps, a power tailgate, an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system, dual-zone climate control, MyKey parental controls, a 14-speaker THX surround-sound audio system, a proximity key, remote start, satellite radio, HD Radio, two USB ports, voice-activated navigation, forward and reverse sensing systems, blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, and a rearview camera. Standard seating features include leather upholstery in the first two rows and 10-way-power-adjustable heated and cooled front seats.

The Lincoln Navigator Reserve adds leather upholstery in all three rows, wood trim, a hand-wrapped leather dashboard, power-deploying running boards, and an adaptive suspension with continuously controlled damping. Some used Navigator models may also come with a moonroof or a dual-screen rear-seat DVD system.

Lincoln also offers certified pre-owned vehicles. 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.

2015 Lincoln Navigator and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Lincoln Navigator or 2015 Infiniti QX80?

The Infiniti QX80 shines in areas where the Navigator falters, offering athletic handling and a more opulent interior. It also has more available safety features than the Navigator, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and a surround-view camera system.

Which Is Better: 2015 Lincoln Navigator or 2015 Cadillac Escalade?

If you’re looking for comfort, check out the Cadillac Escalade. It boasts one of the cushiest and most luxurious cabins in the class, as well as a smooth, supple ride. The Escalade’s powerful base V8 engine tops the Navigator’s, and the Cadillac offers a number of advanced technology features that the Lincoln doesn’t, including a standard hand’s-free liftgate and a Wi-Fi hot spot.
