The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has awarded the 2015 Lincoln Navigator with its maximum 5-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety in the New Car Assessment Program.
The score highlights the SUV’s ability to keep passengers safe in the event of a frontal or side-impact crash, as well as its resistance to rollover. It uses a nifty system called AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control to provide stability and minimize skidding/fishtailing in sharp turns.
However, what impresses us the most about the 2015 Navigator here at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford is the vehicle’s ability to avoid crashes altogether, thanks to its comprehensive suite of advanced driver-assist technologies.
Features like Blind Spot Information System, Cross-traffic alert, and forward and reverse sensing systems ensure that the driver is as aware of his or her surroundings as possible, making them less likely to get into a situation that would lead to an inevitable crash. And that, we think, is even better than its 5-star crashworthiness!
