All-new Lin­coln Nav­i­ga­tor is an ex­cep­tional lux­ury SUV

Times of Oman - - ROUND-UP -

MUS­CAT: Lin­coln has for decades been a sym­bol of ex­cep­tional au­to­mo­tive lux­ury. Its de­sign lan­guage, ad­vanced fea­tures and lux­ury that is al­ways a step above have made the brand one of the most pre­ferred au­to­mo­tive brands in the mar­ket to­day.

In Oman too, Lin­coln has been wit­ness­ing a grow­ing and im­pres­sive cus­tomer base who are mak­ing the most of what a Lin­coln has to of­fer.

Re­cently the in­tro­duc­tion of the all-new Nav­i­ga­tor has got en­thu­si­asts not just talk­ing about it but flock­ing to the Lin­coln show­room at Wat­tayah for an ex­pe­ri­ence. Ac­cord­ing to spokesper­son for Ara­bian Car Mar­ket­ing, the deal­ers of Lin­coln in Oman, “The Nav­i­ga­tor is truly one-of-a-kind. On a whole the en­tire pack­age in un­be­liev­able. We have wit­nessed the ex­pres­sions of cus­tomers who ex­pe­ri­ence for the first time and truly the sight is amaz­ing.”

The all-new Nav­i­ga­tor com­bines mod­ern lux­ury with ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy – el­e­vat­ing fam­ily travel to first class. Nav­i­ga­tor’s el­e­gance is on dis­play be­fore the doors even open. Upon ap­proach, the chrome Lin­coln star logo on the grille softly il­lu­mi­nates. Then, LED light­ing in the lower front body and tail­lamps sub­tly en­gages, and a lu­mi­nous Lin­coln wel­come mat ap­pears beneath the front doors. A twin-turbo V6 en­gine that can pro­duce 450 horse­power pro­vides smooth power when­ever you need it, de­liv­ered through a 10-speed trans­mis­sion. Nav­i­ga­tor’s lighter, high-strength alu­minium-al­loy body helps cre­ate a more re­fined ride. The all-new Nav­i­ga­tor of­fers speed-de­pen­dent adap­tive light­ing, a new Lin­coln tech­nol­ogy that pro­vides a wider spread of light at lower speeds for in­creased vis­i­bil­ity – help­ful when driv­ing through res­i­den­tial ar­eas. As the ve­hi­cle ac­cel­er­ates, the beam of light nar­rows to help elim­i­nate the glare off signs or other dis­trac­tions.

While on the move, the all-new Nav­i­ga­tor is also easy to ad­just to chang­ing con­di­tions. With the turn of a dial, the driver can adapt the Nav­i­ga­tor to chang­ing road or weather, and en­joy a smooth, con­fi­dent ride. Ad­di­tional avail­able tech­nol­ogy in­cludes: Trailer Backup As­sist, which au­to­mat­i­cally steers the ve­hi­cle to turn a trailer the de­sired amount – mean­ing less time re­quired to per­form the task; Nav­i­ga­tor is ex­pected to de­liver more tow­ing ca­pa­bil­ity than any other pre­mium full-size SUV; 360-de­gree cam­era and en­hanced park as­sist, which re­duce stress from par­al­lel and per­pen­dic­u­lar park­ing. The sys­tem in­te­grates views from four cam­eras to cre­ate an over­head im­age so the driver can see all around the ve­hi­cle; Adap­tive cruise con­trol, which au­to­mat­i­cally slows Nav­i­ga­tor in stop-and-go traf­fic – re­sum­ing speed when traf­fic al­lows.

The all-new Nav­i­ga­tor is de­signed to be in­tu­itive and easy to use. A 12-inch con­fig­urable in­stru­ment clus­ter al­lows driv­ers to choose the in­for­ma­tion they want dis­played.

An avail­able Head-Up Dis­play can show se­lected in­for­ma­tion on the wind­shield in­stead of the in­stru­ment clus­ter. This helps driv­ers keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. It does not fade in the sun­light and is vis­i­ble even with po­larised lenses.

The in­te­rior lay­out is clean and un­clut­tered, with a sim­ple, sooth­ing am­bi­ence. At night, in­te­rior am­bi­ent lights se­quen­tially il­lu­mi­nate each of the SUV’s three rows. Dur­ing the day, a panoramic roof fills the cabin with nat­u­ral light. In­side, spa­cious­ness comes in all three rows, in­clud­ing stor­age in each to keep the cabin clean and or­ga­nized. Even when the all-new Nav­i­ga­tor is fully packed, each oc­cu­pant can sit in com­fort. The driver and front-seat pas­sen­ger en­joy Per­fect Po­si­tion Seats, which of­fer mas­sage, heat­ing and cool­ing func­tion­al­ity, and can be ad­justed up to 30 dif­fer­ent ways. The all-new Nav­i­ga­tor’s ad­vanced cargo man­age­ment sys­tem of­fers an ad­justable shelf be­hind the rear seats that al­lows clients to cre­ate stor­age cus­tom­ized to their needs. Even with the ve­hi­cle parked on an in­cline, the fea­ture en­sures gro­ceries won’t roll out when the lift­gate is opened.

An avail­able rear-seat en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem al­lows pas­sen­gers to stream con­tent wire­lessly with an An­droid de­vice to one of the 10inch ad­justable screens mounted on the rear of the front seats. Con­tent also can be ac­cessed through more tra­di­tional de­vices like an SD card, an HDMI cord or a USB, as well as through SYNC Ap­pLink, which per­mits the front-seat pas­sen­ger to mon­i­tor and se­lect view­ing con­tent. Each screen can dis­play dif­fer­ent con­tent, al­low­ing a per­son­al­ized en­ter­tain­ment ex­pe­ri­ence for ev­ery pas­sen­ger.

Oc­cu­pants can en­joy avail­able Revel Ul­tima au­dio with 20 speak­ers that work in con­cert with Nav­i­ga­tor’s in­te­rior de­sign and acous­tics. This trans­forms the cabin into a per­sonal theater with three dis­tinct lis­ten­ing modes – stereo, au­di­ence and on-stage. Stan­dard SYNC 3 en­ables clients to man­age au­dio, phone, nav­i­ga­tion and more from the ve­hi­cle touch screen or steer­ing wheel-mounted con­trols. Sec­ond-row pas­sen­gers have their own au­dio and cli­mate con­trol, while third-row seats fea­ture power re­cline ca­pa­bil­ity. Ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy al­lows the driver to ef­fort­lessly ad­just the ve­hi­cle to make driv­ing eas­ier or more en­joy­able – in any weather or ter­rain. With more space for your be­long­ings than any other large SUV, the all-new Nav­i­ga­tor as­sures al­most noth­ing is left be­hind. Stay­ing con­nected is easy in the all-new Nav­i­ga­tor with six USB ports, four 12-volt power out­lets and a 110-volt plug. An avail­able wire­less phone charger in the first-row cen­ter con­sole me­dia bin elim­i­nates tan­gled cords.

Beneath the sleek in­te­rior are in­cli­na­tion and in­tru­sion sen­sors, which trig­ger an alarm if some­one at­tempts to move or en­ter the ve­hi­cle. The owner’s ex­pe­ri­ence is fur­ther el­e­vated through Lin­coln’s new Per­sonal Pro­file. It uses the key fob to re­call in­di­vid­ual driver pref­er­ences for adapt­ing seat, mir­ror and pedal po­si­tions, as well as cli­mate con­trol and en­ter­tain­ment set­tings.
