When shopping for a new vehicle, one of the important things to learn about is safety features. Many luxury vehicles like the Lincoln Navigator have more safety and driver-assisting features that have your back and give you peace of mind.

Our friends in Richmond, Mechanicsville, and Ashland, VA, understand just how important safety features are when shopping for their next vehicle. That's why we at Richmond Lincoln have put together this review of the 2021 Lincoln Navigator safety ratings and features.

Lincoln Navigator Safety Rating

If you want to get an idea of how safe the 2021 Lincoln Navigator is, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is a great place to start.

The NHTSA conducts crash tests of vehicles to determine how safe they are. The cars will receive a rating out of five stars. There are three types of crash tests:

  • Front
  • Side
  • Rollover

Each of these crash tests receives a starred rating that adds toward the overall 5-star rating. So, how does the Lincoln Navigator do?

The vehicle earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, the best score a vehicle can get. In fact, the Lincoln Navigator earned five stars for its frontal and side crash tests.

Lincoln Dependability

The Lincoln Navigator is a dependable SUV with the tech to prove it. Like many Lincoln models, the Lincoln Navigator has a Phone As a Key function. There is no need to worry about losing your keys; just use your phone via Bluetooth® to unlock, start, and drive your Lincoln Navigator.

If your phone dies, no worries. You can unlock and start your vehicle with a code. With two ways to get into your SUV, you won't have to worry about misplacing anything.

Another helpful dependability tool is the Lincoln Way™ App. This app allows you to perform several functions for your Lincoln, like:

  • Start/stop your vehicle
  • Lock/unlock your Lincoln

In addition to these functions, the app gives you important details to keep an eye on your car's health, oil level, and tire pressure so that you know if your Lincoln Navigator needs attention. You can even contact roadside assistance.

Lincoln Navigator Safety Features

The Lincoln Navigator has plenty of safety and driver-assisting features to help keep you safe if the unexpected happens and that can make your daily drives a little easier.

There are plenty of airbags in the vehicle, including dual-stage front airbags, side-impact airbags, and a Safety Canopy® system with rollover sensor.

When it comes to driver-assisting features, many of them fall under the Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ technology suite. Some of the standard features in this suite are…

  • Lane-Keeping System: Using a camera mounted behind the rearview mirror, this system monitors lane markings to detect unintentional drifts out of your lane. If the system detects a drift, it will use corrective steering to fix it.
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking: If your SUV senses a potent frontal accident, it will warn you and then apply the brakes if needed to help lessen or avoid the severity of an accident.
  • Rear-view camera with camera wash: See any potential obstacles behind your vehicle with this camera. To keep it clean, the camera comes with a washer, so you always have that perfect view.
