The Lincoln Navigator isn’t exactly what anyone might consider a future classic or red hot collectible destined to gain value, but in this day and age, pretty much any lower-mile vehicle made in recent history has some sort of appeal in that regard. In fact, we’ve seen a few Navigators hit the auction block recently and sell for solid money, including a 2011 model with just 6k miles, as well as another 2011 with 14k miles on the odometer. Now, we have yet another stellar example of the large, luxurious SUV that’s up for grabs at Bring a Trailer right now – this 50k-mile 2001 Lincoln Navigator.
This 2001 Lincoln Navigator remained in the possession of the original owner until this year, and as such – coupled with its relatively low mileage total – it remains in fantastic condition. The black exterior paint shines like new, contrasted by gray lower bodywork, chrome trim, running boards, and chrome 17-inch wheels, with just a few minor blemishes that the seller pointed out in the listing.
The same goes for the interior, which is covered in gray leather for the heated, cooled, and power-adjustable front seats, second-row captain’s chairs, and folding third-row bench. As one would expect from a Navigator, this big SUV is filled with amenities including a leather and wood-trimmed steering wheel, driver seat memory settings, power-adjustable pedals, front and rear climate control, cruise control, and an Alpine CD/cassette stereo.
Power comes from the naturally-aspirated Ford 4.6L V8, which in this guise was factory-rated to produce 300 horsepower and 355 pound-feet of torque, flowing to the wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. In excellent shape with few miles on the clock, this 2001 Lincoln Navigator is certainly an appealing find – not to mention a potential future collectible, to boot.
