One of the biggest debuts at the 2016 New York Auto Show was the new Lincoln Navigator Concept, which hints at what the brand has planned for the next-generation model that is rumored to enter production sometime next year.
“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.”
The Lincoln Navigator Concept is powered by the brand’s new 3.5 liter twin-turbo V6 engine that makes an outstanding 400 horsepower. The Navigator Concept also features a new drive mode selector that allows the driver to customize their ride and handling specifications.
The inside of the Lincoln Navigator is accessed through huge gullwing doors and what Lincoln calls “concertina steps.” Once the doors open, you are welcomed by six Perfect Position Seats that are 30-way adjustable to accommodate different body types. There is also a custom wardrobe management system in the back which we don’t think will make it to the production model. Other than that, the interior of the Lincoln Navigator Concept features a Revel audio system, a 360-degree camera parking system, navigation, WiFi, and much more.
We’re pretty much on the edge of our seats to see the production version of the new Lincoln Navigator Concept.
