The 2015 Lincoln Navigator is here!
Building on the DNA of a legendary brand first introduced in the late 90s, the newly redesigned – and reinvented – 2015 Lincoln Navigator truly takes power, beauty and performance to a stunning new level in the full-sized luxury SUV market.
It’s a complete rethink of what made the Navigator such a driving icon in the first place.
In fact, we’re amazed at how many upgrades and improvements Ford has design engineered into an already segment-leading vehicle. Here’s just a sampling of what’s new in the 2015:
A newly redesigned exterior with sleek new hood design, cleaner lines and a return of the distinctive split-wing grille completes the front end. The back end is cleaner and edgier with independent rear suspension and power up/down tailgate. Both ends feature LED lights as well as high-intensity discharge (HID) adaptive headlamps with LED accents. “Welcome mat” lights below both front doors offer an extra touch of functionality and style.
A newly updated interior with a smartly redesigned instrument panel is the focal point. The Reserve Package features sumptuously crafted leather and stitching, with a hand-wrapped leather instrument panel and glove box. Natural grain wood used in paneling and trim is new to the automotive industry, previously only found on yachts.
“With the new Navigator, Ford challenges the luxury SUV market on a whole new level,” says Lou Evans, General Sales Manager at Hassett Lincoln Ford Subaru of Wantagh, NY. “One look and you instantly see how this vehicle is in a class of its own, from the customer-focused technologies to its sheer luxury and power coupled with cargo space and towing capacity to haul virtually anything.”
