    Lincoln Navigator Concept Unveiled

    Lincoln Motor Company
    3-23-16



    Lincoln today reveals the all-new Navigator Concept, introducing quiet luxury to full-size SUVs and offering a glimpse at what comes next for the brand’s best-known nameplate.

    "The all-new Navigator Concept reinforces our commitment to give every Lincoln client what we call quiet luxury – vehicles and experiences that are elegant, effortlessly powerful and serene," said Kumar Galhotra, president of Lincoln. "This kind of quiet luxury sets Lincoln apart. Now, we're showing fans of large SUVs how we can exceed their expectations, without being the loudest statement on the road."

    Lincoln invented the large luxury SUV in 1997, and now is reimagining Navigator for modern clients interested in better performance, more space and further refinement.

    Lincoln's design team drew inspiration from luxury sailboats and yachts when designing the new concept. This influenced everything from the clean, modern lines and Storm Blue paint on the exterior that mimics the grays and blues of sea and sky, to the teak finishes, custom gear and wardrobe management system found inside.

    Re: Lincoln Navigator Concept Unveiled

    The Navigator Concept is engineered to provide drivers peace of mind. It features a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine delivering more than 400 horsepower and smart new technologies to make this SUV even more sure-footed on different road surfaces and in changing weather conditions.

    Drivers can choose several drive modes to improve ride and handling and to find the drive experience that best suits their mood – including steering, suspension and noise levels. Each mode is accompanied by a matching digital animation in the cluster.

    The picture took 1 minute to load... what a tease...

    Love it. Front end looks great, but the sides are stellar. They need to use the Continental door handles (on the production version with real doors) and keep the clean sides.

    That vehicle wouldn't look out of place at Land Rover.

    A top-end Black Label version with gullwing doors and steps? *Drool*

    I like the move, it makes the interior less constricting than a vertical design. the only downside is we end up with a tablet screen on the dash (I much prefer an integrated screen).

    Haha, the gullwing doors are only for the concept, they even said so.

    I made it black for those that want to see it in that color, and will take color requests too:

    First Bentley.

    Now Range Rover & Land Rover feel the sting of Lincolns Copy-Cats.

    That is terrible. This isn't a Navigator, it looks like a minivan.

    And those wheels are a sin.

    Of all of the possible reactions, that is the most contrived. I imagine you had that line in your head for a month now, well before seeing what it looks like.

    There's nothing minivan about that design.

    Re: Lincoln Navigator Concept Unveiled

    It's 'quiet luxury' over 'scaring people'

    Non-buyer critics can say what they like but not page after page....

    Show goers will be all over the Navigator, I bet we see lots of print and nice things said
    but the truth is the production version is still at least 12 months away, so now we wait..

    At least BMW or MB won't be calling out Lincoln for copying their designs..

    I want to know the weight of the Navigator and how much lighter it is than today's version,
    that should be telling for fuel economy and performance.

    And FYI that fact that there is a Lincoln Navigator concept is news to me today. This is my initial reaction based on that one pic.

    Go ahead an look at the live shots at this link. You'll see it has a much more traditional SUV stance than the press pics indicate, at least they did for me.
