While we don’t expect gullwing doors on the production version of Lincoln’s Navigator Concept, we think it should still be able to turn more than a few heads, even without the help of Matthew McConaughey.
This concept was unveiled before the press could even walk over to it and snap any pictures, and we can understand why Lincoln would want it to come as a surprise to media members and potential customers alike.
While certainly spacious and imposing, the Navigator has never really had the same stylish credentials as the Escalade, for example. However, if this concept will faithfully represent most of what we’ll see once the finished product arrives, the likes of Cadillac and perhaps even Land Rover should start paying attention.
In front of the blue leather cabin with its six-seat configuration lies a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, putting down more than 400 HP. So forget about the custom wardrobe management system in the back, once this thing hits production, people will want to hear about numbers, aesthetics and on-board tech – where we can expect systems such as Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, a 360-degree camera and an enhanced parking assist system.
In terms of connectivity, the all-new Navigator should feature Wi-Fi and proper smartphone integration inside the cabin.
All in all, this concept should help put Lincoln back on the map, after all, it’s only a matter of time before professional athletes take notice.
