SAFETY AND TECHNOLOGY UPGRADES REAFFIRM 2010 LINCOLN NAVIGATOR AS LUXURY SUV LEADER
•Standard Trailer Sway Control joins AdvanceTrac® wîth RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) for improved confidence while towing
•SYNC® and SIRIÚS Travel Link™ help 2010 Navigator owners stay connected using voice-activated technologies
•Standard MyKey™ allows Navigator owners to limit top speed, radio volume even when they're not in the vehicle
Lincoln Navigator combines classic Lincoln design and amenities wîth the functionality full-size SÚV customers demand. For 2010, Navigator's exclusive AdvanceTrac wîth RSC is joined by standard Trailer Sway Control.
Trailer Sway Control works in conjunction wîth AdvanceTrac wîth RSC to determine from the yaw motion of the vehicle if the trailer is swaying and takes measures – such as applying precise braking or reduced engine torque – to help bring both vehicle and trailer under control.
Únlike competitive systems, AdvanceTrac wîth RSC utilizes a second gyroscopic roll rate sensor to determine the vehicle's body roll angle and roll rate. If the unique roll rate sensor detects a significant roll angle, the system applies additional countermeasures – such as applying brakes to one or more wheels or reducing engine power – to enhance vehicle rollover resistance.
In the event of an accident, Navigator is equipped wîth the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™, where the horn and emergency flashers are activated in an airbag deployment event. Other safety features include Safety Canopy® side-curtain air bags wîth rollover detection and dual-stage front air bags that deploy wîth varying power based on crash severity, the driver's seat position and safety-belt usage. Front seat-mounted side air bags provide enhanced protection in the event of a side impact, while SYNC wîth 911 Assist can call for help. Refinements in Technology and Comfort
For 2010, the luxurious Lincoln Navigator and Navigator L come wîth the convenience of standard SYNC voice-activated communications and entertainment. More than just hands-free calling, SYNC brings 911 Assist, Vehicle Health Reports, and Traffic, Directions & Information services to the Navigator, all wîth a pre-paid three-year subscription included for the original vehicle owner (SYNC: Traffic, Directions & Information not available wîth the optional navigation system).
Also available is a voice-activated navigation system wîth SIRIÚS Travel Link that lets customers access to up-to-the-minute information and entertainment content through the vehicle's navigation system. The information includes current gas prices from an estimated 120,000 filling stations, up-to-the-minute traffic information for 78 markets, weather conditions, sports scores and movie listings.
To help encourage safer teen driving, Lincoln Navigator for 2010 features the MyKey system. Parents simply program the key through the vehicle message center to incorporate features such as:
•Limited top speed of 80 mph
•AdvanceTrac wîth RSC cannot be deactivated
•Audio system volume limited to 44 percent of maximum volume
•A speed alert chime at 45, 55 and 65 mph
Navigator now features standard power-deployable running boards permitting easy ingress and egress. Premium leather-trimmed seats wîth an inset Lincoln star on the front headrests complement either the standard exterior or the monochrome exterior package.
Other standard features include the Easy Fuel™ capless fuel-filler system, anti-theft perimeter alarm system, second-row heated seats and rain sensing wipers that use an advanced optical sensing system to detect how hard rain or snow is falling, then determine when to activate windshield wipers and how fast to run the wiper motor. As Powerful as it is Luxurious
Navigator is powered by a 5.4-liter V-8 engine featuring Flex Fuel (FFV) capability to give owners more options at the pump. With three valves per cylinder and variable cam timing, the 5.4-liter engine delivers a balance of refinement and muscle. Rated at 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque, Navigator can tow up to 9,200 pounds when properly equipped.
Navigator's powerful engine is paired wîth a standard six-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
With a wide 6.02:1 gear ratio and two overdrive gears (fifth and sixth), the six-speed transmission has smaller steps between gears than a typical four-speed automatic and offers improved shift quality, faster acceleration and improved fuel economy. Navigator Safety Technologies
