The Lincoln Navigator is no doubt one of the most fabulous SUV that comes in the United States, a genuine American symbol of luxury meeting state-of-the-art technology. The bulk design makes it extremely appreciated.
However, in the tuning world, there were just a couple of Navigators enjoying thorough treatments from tuning firms. A couple of days ago I had the chance of stumbling over the below program, put together by no other than Hennessey Performance, one of the finest aftermarket shops to take on American muscle cars.
With Lincoln part of For Company Motors, it was just a matter of time until a massive SUV like the Navigator would get what it deserved: power enhancement under the hood and a more luxurious treatment inside the cabin.
Mechanically, the Lincoln Navigator by Hennessey has received lowered suspension, high-performance Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers and 15.1-inch brake rotors. About these new enhancements, Hennessey stated that “our family has owned and driven several high-powered GMG Denalis and Escalades over the past five years. We are now very pleased to have a high-powered Lincoln to add to our family fleet.”
In the stock form, the Lincoln Navigator uses a 3.5-liter bi-turbo V6 engine, the same one used underneath the Ford F-150 Raptor, developing 450 horsepower. However, with the tuner`s 150 extra of horsepower, the SUV in question becomes the first custom-build model to receive such amount of power.
The engine modifications refer to an ECU remapping, high-flow air induction system, large front-mounted intercooler system and new stainless steel exhaust, all allowing a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds.
“The 2018 Navigator is a world-class luxury SUV and we wanted to take its already impressive power and performance to the next level.”
“Over the past 12 months we have built and delivered hundreds of VelociRaptor 600 upgrades to our new Ford Raptor clients. It made perfect sense to offer a similar upgrade package for the new Navigator, which has essentially the same engine.”
