Lincoln shows Navicross Concept
The Lincoln Navicross concept vehicle is a breakthrough, all-conditions sport coupe that shatters the accepted car, crossover and sport utility vehicle paradigms. Designed to be visually striking, dynamically engaging and uniquely practical, Navicross creates an all-new, yet unnamed industry niche. The Navicross also delivers the Lincoln hallmarks of rich, inviting comfort and is the next application of the Lincoln design DNA -- a process that began with the Lincoln MK9 concept in 2001, and the Lincoln Continental show car a year later.
The Navicross was designed as neither a sports coupe, sport sedan nor a sport utility, yet it serves many of the purposes of all three. It deploys a full-time all-wheel-drive system with adaptive traction control, features coupe looks with center opening b-pillarless rear doors and has a similar size and shape to that of a sport coupe combined with a sport wagon ground clearance and breakover angles of a sport utility vehicle. It defies typical crossover vehicles because of sportier proportions and a silhouette shaped like none of the people-hauler-purposed crossovers currently on the market.
