Yes, the Lincoln Navigator is big! And without any discussion, it’s one of the most luxurious SUVs on the market. But thanks to the new concept presented at New York Auto Show, it shows its real capabilities.
It features elements that will probably be seen in the next generation’s SUV, being built on the “quiet luxury” concept. It’s a proof that being powerful doesn’t necessary mean to be loud. Ever since it first came in production, in 1997, the Navigator continuously evolved to become a powerful, hugely-spacious, highly-refined SUV. This concept is inspired by the most luxurious yachts and sailboats and that can be seen in all its aspects, from the Storm Blue body color, imitating the sea and sky grades, to the rounded, clean body design. Onboard, the yacht-like features continue, with teak elements and wardrobe management system, containing equipment for a day on the water.
Under the hood, a V6 turbo engine proves that serenity and high performance blends perfectly. It squeezes over 400 hp from a 3.5 liter displacement, guiding this luxurious boat effortlessly over any surface. The sailor – sorry – driver can choose between a few drive modes for a sportier or a more comfortable ride. He can also pick one of the different adjustments of steering response, displayed with animations on the central screen.
To ensure the best possible comfort, the six individual seats offer thirty way adjustments, while the Revel audio system creates a high class atmosphere. The unique feeling of entering the car under the huge gullwing doors, is emphasized by the Lincoln’s specially developed interior lighting scheme. As a proof that nothing was left behind, the safety it’s at high levels, thanks to the Pre-Collision Assist system with Pedestrial Detection, 360 degrees camera for low-speed maneuvers and the lane-keeping system.
