The Navigator L is an upscale version of the Ford Expedition EL. To make certain the two are never confused, the Navigator wears one of the most boldly styled front ends on the market. The upscale interior is finished in leather, wood and satin-nickel finishes. Third row seats are can be folded automatically. Compared to the shorter wheelbase Navigator, the Navigator L adds some 15 inches of length behind the third row seat, doubling the three-row cargo carrying capability. The standard 300-bhp 5.4L V-8 is equipped with a 6-speed automatic. Although full-size SUVs have become popular as family haulers, their only real advantage is the higher tow ratings. Full-size SUVs with truck underpinnings are robbed of interior space with the body mounted over the frame. Modern FWD-biased SUVs offer similar interior room with improved maneuverability, cargo capacity and fuel efficiency for far less money.
