2007 Lincoln Navigator Gets Aggressive Overhaul
Lincoln's next Navigator goes for the bling. You can buy one starting in late summer, the company tells IL.
DEARBORN, Mich. — Lincoln takes the wraps off its redesigned Lincoln Navigator SUV at the Chicago auto show on Wednesday, showing off a new look and a "Navigator L" model that is 14.7 inches longer than the regular version and gives buyers an additional 25 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the third-row seat.
The '07 Lincoln has a more in-your-face chrome grille, a "powerdome" hood, optional 20-inch chrome wheels, new wing-shaped taillamps, and new body-side trim integrated into the lower cladding. In the cabin, Lincoln says second-row seats now feature a one-hand fold-and-tumble operation for access to the third row.
Major chassis enhancements include larger brakes, a stiffer frame, and an all-new independent rear suspension. The powertrain, a 5.4-liter V8 mated to a standard six-speed automatic transmission that generates 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque, is carried over from the previous model.
What this means to you: If you're after a big ride and more bling, you're going to get it with the redesigned Lincoln Navigator.
The 2007 Lincoln Navigator is bolder, if that is possible, than the current model. Check out that in-your-face grille.
Not just a pretty face: The 2007 Lincoln Navigator has an all-new independent rear suspension, larger brakes, and a stiffer frame.
