Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview The Navigator is Lincoln's full-size luxury SUV that can seat up to eight people in three rows. Related to the Ford Expedition, the SUV is also available in long-wheelbase Navigator L form. Competitors include the Cadillac Escalade and Infiniti QX56.
New for 2011 A voice-controlled navigation system with HD radio technology and Sirius Travel Link is now standard instead of optional for the Navigator, which also gets free maintenance for the first 12 months or 15,000 miles.
Exterior The Navigator's most prominent feature is its grille. It's an eggcrate design with a large horizontal bar running through the Lincoln logo. Flanking the grille are standard xenon headlights. Exterior features include:
Standard capless fuel system
Standard rain-sensing wipers
Standard power liftgate
Standard 18-inch aluminum wheels; 20-inch chrome rims optional
Interior The leather-upholstered heated-and-cooled front seats include power adjustments, and there are adjustable pedals to add to driver comfort. Wood accents are found throughout the cabin. Second-row captain's chairs are standard, but a split-bench seat can be substituted at no extra charge. There's a standard power-folding third-row seat.
The Navigator also comes standard with Ford's Sync voice-operated entertainment and information system and MyKey, which gives buyers the ability to set maximum speed and volume limits based on the key that's in use — handy for parents sharing the Navigator with a teen driver. Power-lowering running boards are standard, too. Interior features include:
Seats seven or eight
Standard Sync voice-activated multimedia system
Standard backup camera
Standard heated second-row bucket seats
Standard Sirius Satellite Radio with 14-speaker audio system
Optional backseat entertainment system with 8-inch screen
Under the Hood The Navigator has standard V-8 power and is available with rear- or four-wheel drive. Mechanical features include:
310-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 that makes 365 pounds-feet of torque
Six-speed automatic transmission
Runs on regular gas
9,000-pound (RWD) or 8,700-pound (4WD) towing capacity when properly equipped
Safety The standard electronic stability system includes trailer sway control, which can detect if a trailer is out of control and apply the brakes or reduce engine power.
Standard safety features include:
Electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control and trailer sway control
Side-impact airbags for front-seat occupants
Side curtain airbags for all three rows of seats
Front and rear parking sensors
Navigator L Though similar in appearance to the regular Navigator, the long-wheelbase Navigator L is about 15 inches longer and provides 42.6 cubic feet of cargo space with all the seats in place — nearly 25 cubic feet more than the shorter model.
Like the Navigator, the Navigator L is powered by a 5.4-liter V-8 that drives a six-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and four-wheel-drive models are offered, but the Navigator L's towing capacity of 8,700 pounds for the rear-wheel-drive model and 8,500 pounds for four-wheel-drive versions are both slightly lower than what the regular Navigator achieves.
