Something, anything better than this; I mean the old Navigator wasn't a Maserati Quattroporte when it came to the looks department, but still it was 1000 times better than this.

By "BOLD moves", I think we were all expecting something else.

I like the steering wheel, where you grippin grain down low, and have the controls as well.

Interior on the whole isn't too bad, instrument panel seems cool, but all-in-all a bit light colored for my taste.

Don't like the front grille.

I hate the new pick-up truck that Lincoln makes. Defeats the purpose, IMO:

95% of cars produced today are ugly.
I'm not surpised that Ford's SUV is ugly. I'm always pleasantly surprised when I see a modern car of any type that looks good.

It reminds me of that much maligned Pontiac Aztek. Car design--like most design--is very stagnant these days.

Maybe they're shooting for the half a billion figure.

Ford, which this week lost its place as the US second largest carmaker to Japan's Toyota, said higher pension costs related to its redundancy programme would push its net second-quarter loss up from the $123m announced on July 20 to $254m.

does this get great mileage or are they marketing these to the dozen or so people in denial that gas prices have tripled?

What is so pitiful is that this thing and pickup trucks is about the only product that's kept Ford afloat (be that as it may) these last few years. The profit margin on these gas-guzzlers in incredible. And you should all of the SUVs that are on the streets here. I swear 50% of the traffic!

Despite their troubles, this car is sexy up close and live.

A few years back, when the Navigator came out, I was listening to talk radio in NJ -- the guys on the station were calling it the 'Lincoln Fornicator.' I found this highly amusing. ~ Huntsman

Other than the Shelby projects Ford had lined up recently, they have seemed rather stale. I havent been interested in American cars since the Muscle movement.
