The 2015 Lincoln Navigator has earned a five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A five-star Overall Vehicle Score is the highest rating a vehicle can earn in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program, which is tasked with evaluating new automobile designs against various safety threats.
The program combines vehicle performance in frontal and side-impact crash tests and resistance to rollover.
The 2015 Lincoln Navigator features advanced technologies aimed at providing safety for occupants.
• AdvanceTracwith Roll Stability Controluses gyroscopic sensors to measure the vehicle’s roll and turning rates to help provide stability in sharp turns. The system applies brake pressure and reduces power to minimize skidding and fishtailing when the vehicle corners sharply or swerves
• Side-impact airbags, standard equipment on Navigator, include side-curtain airbags that deploy from the headliner or from both sides of the vehicle as part of the Safety CanopySystem
• SOS Post-Crash Alert Systemtriggers the horn and emergency flashers when the front airbags are deployed or the safety belt pretensioners are activated, which aids first responders trying to locate the vehicle
Navigator also features a suite of driver-assist technologies including:
• Blind Spot Information System uses radar located in the rear quarter panels to help detect a vehicle in a blind spot. If a vehicle is detected, BLISalerts the driver with a warning light in the appropriate sideview mirror
• Cross-traffic alert uses radar to detect vehicles approaching from the side when a motorist is slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. An approaching vehicle can be detected from up to 15 yards away. The system will send an audible warning to the driver and a visual display in the corresponding mirror will appear, as well as a flashing light in the vehicle’s message center
• Forward and reverse sensing systems provide audible alerts designed to help drivers avoid obstacles when parking
