Anderson Germany has a way of turning less glamorous vehicles into pieces of tuning art. Their latest project involving the Lincoln Navigator is proof that they’re tuning talents cover just about any vehicle they can get their hands on.
Similar to most of their programs, Anderson Germany decided to give the Navigator the all-black treatment, or in this case, a hyper gloss black finish. The German tuner also went bananas with carbon fiber, fitting the Navigator with the high-end material on the door mirrors, the bonnet insert, the wheels, and even some parts of the interior.
Speaking of the interior, Anderson Germany matched the carbon fiber on the steering wheel, dashboard, door covers, with a comprehensive leather dress-up on just about every corner of the Navigator’s cabin. Heck, it even has a Playstation 3 console at the back!
No details on any mechanical upgrades were divulged, but even if the powertrain remains untouched, the sheer class and elegance of the aesthetic upgrades is more than enough for us to say that Anderson Germany has worked some magic once again.
Lincoln is offering the 2010 Navigator with safety and technology upgrades, but also with new standard equipment. The Navigator will be available in standard and L version, both offered in either 4x2 or 4x4 trim. Prices will range from $54,400 to $59,465.
Delivering 310 hp and 365 lb.-ft. of torque, the 5.4L SOHC V8 engine on the 2010 Lincoln Navigator is flex fuel capable, which makes it powerful and versatile. You can fill up with E85 (a blend of ethanol and gasoline), regular gasoline, or any combination of the two. And its strength goes beyond the gas pumps. The Navigator 4x2 can tow up to 9,000 lbs. (8,700 lbs., 4x4) when properly equipped.
Punctuated by a striking chrome grille, the Navigator exudes confidence. Strong, assertive lines throughout its imposing body enhance its powerful exterior, while chrome accents add sheen to its already commanding presence. Inside the 2010 Lincoln Navigator you’ll find detailed craftsmanship throughout. From chrome door handles and the leather- and wood-trimmed steering wheel to the stylish, rectangular gauges and flow-through console, Navigator is as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside.
Before you get on the road this long 4th of July weekend make sure you give vehicle a solid once over. Like Mario Andretti used to say: "There’s alot riding on your tires." So if you are a fan of the blue oval brand then you might want to pay attention to this.
Haven’t we heard this news before?
A car manufacturer recalls their vehicles because they found out there was something wrong with them. Now we have the latest recalls courtesy of both Ford.
It’s been reported that Ford is recalling 1,357 of its 2009 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigators because of defective brake lights.
According to the geniuses at Ford, a malfunctioning switch can result in a delay in brake stop-lamp illumination and in some cases, could be the difference between an accident and a close shave.
Fortunately for the fine folks at Ford, there has yet to be a reported accident that came as a result of this glitch and to their credit, they`re not going to wait around for the first one to happen.
So if you have either a 2009 Ford Expedition or a Lincoln Navigator and you happen to notice that your tail lights aren`t working the way they`re supposed to, you might want to contact Ford at (866) 436-7332 to have this problem fixed. You never know, it just might save you a ton of money in potential damages.
The recall for the Explorer and the Navigator will begin on or before July 6.
Lincoln unveiled the 2009 Navigator, a SUV that comes with improved fuel economy: an EPA-estimated 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway on 4X2 models. The Navigator is powered by a 5.4 liter, three-valve Triton V-8, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, which generates 300 hp and 365 lbs-ft of torque.
Unique software has been engineered to regulate gas consumption by using aggressive deceleration fuel shut-off delivering considerable fuel savings with no extra effort from the driver. This complex fuel strategy is being added to many Ford products to help improve fuel economy across the board – including the new 2009 Ford F-150.
