Exclusive Safety and Security Features
of mind on journeys of any length, Navigator is aided by exclusive AdvanceTrac
with RSC, including standard Trailer Sway Control. Trailer Sway Control works in
conjunction with AdvanceTrac with RSC to detect trailer sway through the motions
of the vehicle and take measures - such as applying precise braking and reducing
engine torque - to bring both vehicle and trailer under control.
AdvanceTrac with RSC delivers a level of performance that competitive stability
control systems can't match. Unlike competitor systems, AdvanceTrac with RSC
uses 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 keep the wheels
In the event of an accident, Navigator is equipped with
the SOS Post-Crash Alert System, where the horn and emergency flashers are
activated should airbags deploy. Other safety features include Safety Canopy
side-curtain airbags, a rollover detection system and dual-stage front airbags
that deploy with varying power based on crash severity, the driver's seat
position and seat belt usage. Front seat side airbags provide extra protection
in the event of a side impact.
Navigator also features the exclusive
MyKey system. Parents can simply program the vehicle key through the in-dash
message center to incorporate restrictions such as:
- Persistent Belt-Minder chime
- Limited top speed of 80 mph
- Traction control system that limits tire spin cannot be deactivated
- Audio system volume limited to 44 percent of maximum volume
- A speed alert chime at 45, 55 or 65 mph
Capability to Match its Luxury
Navigator is powered by a proven, capable
5.4-liter Flex Fuel V-8 engine. Flex Fuel gives consumers more options at the
pump, allowing refueling with E85 ethanol fuel blends.
With three valves
per cylinder and variable camshaft timing, the 5.4-liter engine delivers a
satisfying balance of refinement and muscle. Rated at 310 horsepower and 365
ft-lb of torque, Navigator can tow up to 9,000 pounds when properly equipped.
With a wider gear ratio, Navigator's 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.
