The Lincoln Navigator has best-in-class towing -capable of hauling up to 9,000 pounds. And the 6-speed automatic transmissionwith tow/haul mode helps keep you from gaining too much speed when towing downhill. And going up? It helps the engine stay in its power band so that youcan keep your momentum. Standard trailer sway control works with tractioncontrol to monitor vehicle motion, and to help give you peace of mind.
The Lincoln Navigator is one of the very few full-sizeSUVs engineered with an independent multilink rear suspension (IRS) system thatenables each wheel to negotiate bumps and jolts on its own terms, providingenhanced ride quality and control.
Superior ride and handling aren't the only benefits. The Navigator IRS featuresour patented "porthole-in-frame" design in which steel halfshafts pass throughelliptical portholes in the frame. This design allows for a lower and fullyflat load floor, increased passenger and cargo volume, a lower rear ride heightfor enhanced aerodynamics, plus a lower step-in height to help make getting in and out easier.

In Full Manual mode, you can go all the way up anddown the gearbox to put you fully in control. The display will show theselected gear and the control system will lock the torque converter and holdthat gear for a full manual transmission feel.
