CC Outtake: This Is Not A Great Luxury Car

I’ve always been highly challenged by the existence of the Navigator. Plunking a “classic” grille on the front of a trucky Ford Expedition was bad enough, on so many levels. But when I first saw this revised version in 2007, I almost browned my bermudas. Does it get an award for the tackiest attempt ever to cash in on the retro trend so hot at the time? As if soccer moms had a clue that it referred back to the 1963 Lincoln Continental. Maybe it was specifically designed to remind moms to not forget their kids’ appointment with the orthodontist.
