One thing I like to do when we get a new vehicle to drive is to check out the backseat. I like to know that not only are the front seat passengers comfortable, but the kids in the back are as well. After all, they deserve to ride in luxury too.
2015 Lincoln Navigator
The 2015 Lincoln Navigator offers nothing but comfort and luxury. But don’t think that takes away from the family-friendly nature of the SUV. Our girls found it extremely nice and hard to give back.
Just take a look at these features and see if you can resist the back seat:
- With its best-in-class (Luxury Extended Utilities) third-row leg room, there is plenty of room to stretch. Even our kids with the longest legs have no problem extending their legs for comfort. Not to mention, there is no rubbing of heads on the car’s roof. The head room in the back allows for tall riders and gives everyone enough breathing room to remain comfortable. With all of our kids, this is essential.
- Not to mention, it is not often that the kids get to experience heated bucket seats. Lincoln went above and beyond as far as the kids are concerned. In addition to the low-back heat seeping through their seats, they are also enveloped in leather-trimmed seats that can recline for additional convenience on the road.
- Auxiliary climate controls are a big deal as well. Being able to control their space in the backseat seems to give them a sense of independence within the vehicle. And, I can stay nice and warm in my front seat zoned area while they keep it a little cooler. It’s a win-win for all of us really.
- Now, the Navigator we drove did not have this option, but it is definitely one worth mentioning for families: Dual-Headrest DVD Entertainment System by INVISION™. If you take long road trips and have small kids, this could be a sanity saver. Or, it would be in our family. It features two 7-inch color LCD wide-screen monitors that are built into the front-row head restraints. The back seat passengers can watch different movies (or the same one) and listen quietly thanks to the two dual-channel infrared headphones. In today’s world, this is like heaven on wheels.
Plus, don’t think the kids don’t notice the vast amount of storage space behind the 3rd row. Plus, with the extended-version, Navigator L, there is even more room to be had. This means more room for the kids in their seats when we have luggage, shopping bags, or bikes in the back.
Throw in the standard rear view camera, LATCH system, AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) and MyKey®, and you have an excellent family-friendly vehicle.
