Lincoln unveiled today the 2015 Navigator model. The US full-size SUV will be officially showcased at the 2014 Chicago Motor Show in February.
As you already know, the 2015 Navigator was developed to tackle the new Cadillac Escalade and features a unique hood, a split-wing grille with LED-infused HID headlights. Furthermore, we see some chrome accessories, redesigned taillights and 20 inch aluminum wheels.
Inside the cabin we see a leather and wood steering wheel, a start engine button, MyLincoln Touch infotainment system along with high quality materials and Power Fold third-row seats.
Furthermore, Lincoln is offering the Reserve Package which adds "ultra-luxurious leather" seats, a leather-wrapped dashboard and Ziricote wood trim. The kit also has 22-inch polished aluminum wheels.
Under the bonnet of the 2015 Lincoln Navigator is a twin-turbo 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 engine which is rumored to develop 370 horsepower and 582 Nm peak of torque. The engine resources are put to the ground via a six-speed automatic gearbox and it can be paired to an optional Control Trac Four-Wheel-Drive system.
The Navigator can also be equipped with Lincoln Drive Control with Continuously Controlled Damping. Lincoln says the system "monitors multiple vehicle sensors and road conditions every two milliseconds and adjusts the suspension needs accordingly" to ensure a smooth ride.
“Navigator has retained some of the most loyal following in the segment for more than a decade,” said Jim Farley, executive vice president, Ford global marketing, sales and service and Lincoln. “Among Lincoln owners, more than 70 percent have been return customers – purchasing the vehicle for its power, for its beauty and for its capability, and this new Navigator gives them more on all three fronts.”Source: Lincoln
