Lincoln revealed a new Navigator concept today, bringing the “Quiet Luxury” theme found in the new Continental to the SUV range. Unlike the aircraft-inspired sedan revealed in Detroit, the Navigator has touches influenced by million-dollar yachts and sailboats.
Apparently Lincoln has forgotten all the land yachts they and others foisted upon us back in the days of malaise.
The Navigator concept is powered by a 400-horsepower twin-turbo V6, outfitted with multiple drive modes to match the driver’s mood. No word if the large SUV will do best tacking to starboard or to port.
The Navigator also shows a new wardrobe management system, to make sure that the driver always has a fresh pair of Top-Siders at the ready.
The gullwing door mechanism works in concert with a trio of steps, apparently developed in tandem with Gillette, to ease access to the cabin. Inside, thirty speakers will do their best to cocoon the passengers from the outside world — potentially negating the “Quiet Luxury” tagline.
