Every time I get a Lincoln Navigator at my doorstep, my heart skips a beat knowing that for the next few days, I will dominate the roads in Dubai. There is something about this luxury SUV that brings images of cool people with hoodies and loud jewellery cruising slowly around the city with music just loud enough to make others look in awe and get out of the way.
I realize this image and impression has come from music videos of the kings of rap music but knowing that I shall be the cool kid in the neighbourhood for a few days brings me immense joy.
Blending an updated exterior, refreshed infotainment system, and stylish new interior options, the new Lincoln Navigator comes with an updated signature grille, front end equipped with standard adaptive pixel projector headlamps, and all-new 3D taillamps as well as Ford’s SYNC4Ò infotainment system.
With its spacious interior, confident exterior, advanced technologies, and unmatched comfort for both driver and passengers, the Navigator as a large-size luxury SUV is a comfortable ride and offers a seamless, connected, and personalized experience for driver and passengers.
For instance, Ford’s SYNC4Ò infotainment system recognizes individual voices for hands-free control of an enhanced navigation operating system via a new, larger 13.2-inch center screen. As the driver, I had the freedom to configure the 12-inch heads-up display with the information I wanted, so I would not need to take my eyes off the road while driving.
We enjoyed the upgraded massage system, climate adjustment and other curated luxurious experiences for all passengers. To raise the luxury quotient further, Lincoln partnered with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) to provide a calming aural atmosphere in the new Navigator. Plus the award-winning acoustics of the Revel Ultima 3D audio system, 28 speakers that envelop occupants with rich, precise, and multidimensional sound offers a truly 360-degree listening experience.
The new Navigator comes with a highly responsive powertrain complemented by remarkable handling. Under the hood, an advanced 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine offers an impressive 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.
There is also a suite of advanced driver assist technologies making our driving experience intuitive and comfortable. Adaptive Suspension with Road Preview is the Navigator’s newest update in this category – 12 sensors, including a forward-facing camera, scan body movements, vehicle motion, steering, acceleration, and braking 500 times per second and automatically prompt adjustments up to 100 times a second to mitigate unpleasant impacts.
Other standard features include Intersection Assist, Active Park Assist 2.0, which uses side sensors to help drivers comfortably exit even the tightest spots, Forward Collision Warning, Post Collision Braking, Distance Alert, Dynamic Brake Support, Pedestrian Detection, Auto Hold, Hill Start/ Descent Assist, Automatic Headlamps, Voice-Activated Touchscreen Navigation and Adaptive Cruise Control.
The new Lincoln Navigator is indeed a luxury SUV with premium features, progressive design, intuitive technologies and so much more.
