EXPRESSIVE DESIGN MAKES A DRAMATIC STATEMENT
The 2007 Lincoln Navigator’s distinctive design combines power and refinement to deliver Lincoln luxury. Lincoln Navigator looks powerful and capable without looking pretentious.

"Lincoln Navigator features refined power, grand style with modern and elegant execution," says Chelsia Lau, Lincoln Navigator chief designer. "The dramatic design conveys power, both from under the hood and from the feeling behind the wheel."

That statement of power begins with the bold chrome grille. The horizontal and vertical lines are inspired by the Lincoln star, detailed with sharp, organized surfaces. The precision detailing of the grille extends into the high-intensity-discharge (HID) projector headlamps. The lower grille carries through the theme, housing the integrated fog lamps.

"We wanted to integrate every aspect of the front-end design," says Lau. "By continuing the grille into the optics, they are no longer just headlights, but industrial jewelry that completes the overall design."

The upper grille is carried into the chiseled chamfers that define the prominent "powerdome" hood, reinforcing Lincoln Navigator’s imposing presence.

The Lincoln Navigator profile is defined by clean, sheer, tapered surfaces. That design language is consistent throughout the vehicle, from the smooth quarter panels to the chiseled side mirror shells. A Lincoln-signature chrome strip highlights the beltline, while chrome body-side trim extends from the front wheel well to the back for a tailored appearance. A proud, stable stance on 18-inch machined aluminum wheels – or available 20-inch chrome wheels – plants the vehicle to the road.

For 2007, Lincoln Navigator again offers power-folding running boards, improved for more seamless integration. With the doors closed, the running boards fold out of sight and are perfectly integrated into the lower body wrap. When one of the side doors is opened, the running boards fold out in presentation, offering a step bar for easy ingress and egress.

The new taillamps give a nod to the 2007 Lincoln MKZ luxury mid-size sedan, with wing-shaped lamps that cut into the liftgate and wrap around the vehicle. A bold chrome outline and white inserts in the red optic areas complete the exterior.

Interior

MODERN-LUXURY INTERIOR SETS THE BAR

The Lincoln Navigator engineering team carefully looked at the needs and desires of Navigator buyers, then collaborated on the all-new luxurious interior to answer those needs.

"The typical Lincoln Navigator owner is a check-every-box buyer," says Raj Nair, executive director, Body-on-frame Vehicles. "If there’s an option, they want it. We set out to offer these demanding buyers more luxury, more features and a greater level of craftsmanship."

The Navigator’s interior features a flowthrough center console that sweeps up into the rectangular "eyebrows" that frame the dash panel. The strong graphic presentation is echoed in the shape of the instrument bezels, a design inspired by popular rectangular fashion eyewear.

Lincoln Navigator offers the elegance of genuine Dark Ebony or Anigre wood trim on the console and upper door panels. The wood trim is bookmatched so the grains are precisely aligned. For example, the coin-tray cover is laser cut from the center console wood trim for perfectly matched wood grain.

"Today’s luxury buyer isn’t satisfied with just leather seats and wood trim," says Lau. "What modern luxury buyers are looking for – and what we delivered in Lincoln Navigator – are superior craftsmanship and exquisite details. Details such as bookmatched wood grain, soft white lighting and butter-soft leather are what make Lincoln Navigator truly luxurious."

Details like satin-nickel accents on the center stack, binnacle inserts and door trim and chrome accents on cup-holder rings, steering wheel and door releases speak to Lincoln Navigator’s fine craftsmanship. A touch of black on the center stack and instrument panel provides further emphasis of refinement. At night, the interior is bathed in Lincoln’s signature cool-white lighting, creating a soothing atmosphere.

Premium leather contributes to the overall comfort, further improving Lincoln’s signature seating

According to Lowell Lampen, manager of SUV Seats, a key to seating comfort is providing a soft cushion as soon as customers sit down. It’s important to balance that initial feel with firm support making seats comfortable for long trips. The standard 10-way power driver and front passenger seats are designed to comfortably accommodate a diverse group of occupants, from 4-foot-10 to 6-foot-5, from 90 pounds to 300 pounds. Power-adjustable pedals and memory functions enable drivers to fine-tune their positions. The front seats also offer next-generation heating and cooling for the ultimate in comfort – another Lincoln hallmark.

Even Lincoln Navigator’s seat frames were refined to improve comfort by eliminating the vibration from the floor.

This premium seating extends to the available 40/20/40-split second row seat and 60/40-split third row, which effortlessly tumble to create a flat load floor. With seating for eight, the Lincoln Navigator offers 18.2 cubic feet of cargo space, while Navigator L offers 42.7 cubic feet.

With both the second- and third-row seats folded, the Lincoln Navigator can accommodate 103.5 cubic feet, while Navigator L offers a cavernous 128.2 cubic feet.

The second-row seats feature new mechanisms that enable one-hand fold-and-tumble operation to access the third row. For increased visibility, the second-row head restraints fold forward 90 degrees to improve driver rear view.

Lincoln Navigator’s third-row seat folds flat into the floor for added cargo space. The available PowerFold third row offers 54.5 cubic feet of cargo space at the touch of a button.

The available power liftgate provides even more convenience. For 2007, the system has been redesigned to use side-mounted pistons for improved rear visibility.


Technology


STATE-OF-THE-ART ENTERTAINMENT

Lincoln Navigator offers a host of features and options that provide a high level of convenience. The voice-activated DVD-based navigation system features a 6.5-inch touch screen designed for improved clarity and incorporates text-to-speech technology that reads and communicates directions and street names in three languages. The efficiency of the dual-zone climate control has been improved, bringing the cabin to a comfortable temperature in a third of the previous time.

Lincoln Navigator offers a first-in-class 600-watt THX II Certified premium audio system with six-disc CD changer and 14 speakers. A power amplifier is mounted behind the center stack, and a center speaker array is mounted above the center stack for optimum sound clarity and quality. For even more sound choices, SIRIUS satellite radio is available, as is an integrated MP3 audio jack.

If rear passenger entertainment is in order, Lincoln Navigator has an available entertainment system with a larger 8-inch screen and two wireless headphones to keep the sound contained.
’WHISPER QUIET’ REFINED RIDE
Enjoying the Lincoln Navigator’s entertainment offerings is even easier, as engineers "soundly" beat their initial targets for interior quietness.

"Our initial targets were a significant improvement over the already stringent levels we set with the previous Lincoln Navigator," says John Viera, Navigator chief nameplate engineer. "But as the program progressed, we made such dramatic improvements in quietness we had to set new targets. The result is a vehicle that will provide our customers with a truly unexpected quality of quietness on the road."

Additional noise-dampening insulation was added to the headliner and dash to help decrease wind and powertrain noise. Noise-absorbing padding was added to the carpeting to further reduce tire and road noise. Thicker side glass and new cut-line seals were added for decreased wind noise.

Additional structure was added to the roof to reduce body boom, and a stiffer chassis and new body mounts further isolate road noise and vibration. Side mirrors were "tuned" to reduce wind noise in the cabin, and tire tread designs were optimized to minimize road noise.

IMPROVED RIDE AND HANDLING FOR LUXURY DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Lincoln Navigator also offers a confident, refined driving experience commensurate with a luxury vehicle.

The vehicle features a stiffer frame for improved handling and decreased susceptibility to squeaks and rattles. The frame features a tube-through-tube design, creating one of the stiffest frames in the industry.

Lincoln Navigator

The 2007 Lincoln Navigator has an all-new independent rear suspension (IRS). The new IRS features a five-link design, with the fifth link controlling fore/aft movements while the short and long arms control lateral forces. This allows for greater control of wheel movement, as well as enabling lighter suspension components for improved response.

Engines

Power is provided by Lincoln Navigator’s 5.4-liter, three-valve Triton™ V-8, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, that generates 300 horsepower and 365 foot pounds of torque.

Lincoln Navigator

A wide-ratio, 6-speed transmission has smaller steps between gears than a typical 4-speed automatic and offers improved shift quality and faster acceleration. With a wide 6.02:1 gear ratio and two overdrive gears (fifth and sixth), the Lincoln Navigator Lincoln Navigator ’s 6-speed offers up to a 7 percent increase in fuel economy on the highway over a typical 4-speed automatic.

The interior design looks classic but really elegant. Plus the body of Lincoln Navigator is great. Really good for a family drive.
