2019 Lincoln Black Label Navigator

2019 Lincoln Black Label Navigator

Customized for car collector Jay Leno

Redesigned for the 2018 model year, the Lincoln Navigator finally has what it takes to compete against the current Cadillac Escalade. It also comes in a long-wheelbase version and with the company’s recently introduced, more luxurious Black Label package. The latter has become so appealing that even TV celebrity and car collector Jay Leno ordered one. However, Leno requested some aftermarket extras and showcased the SUV at the 2018 SEMA Show.

Although it’s pretty much a stock Black Label model, it stands out thanks to its unique paint, wheels, and customized interior. Although it was conceived by the Lincoln Design Studio, this Navigator was actually customized by Van Nuys and Galpin Motors & Auto Sports. The Black Label Navigator will join the 1966 Lincoln Continental the Jay Leno purchased earlier in 2018.

2018 Lincoln Navigator

Watch out, Cadillac... Lincoln is BACK!

The days of a worn-out, aging Navigator are gone. Lincoln has finally given its full-size luxury SUV a proper makeover, complete with a high-horsepower EcoBoost V-6, an upscale appearance and perhaps the classiest interior ever seen in the American SUV segment. Of course, the new Navigator is based on Ford’s all-new Expedition. Both share a new high-strength steel frame, aluminum construction for the body, and Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission. Cadillac has held the luxury SUV torch for years with its well-regarded Escalade, but Lincoln could soon be taking the lead.

“Quiet luxury is both a look and a feeling. The all-new Navigator embodies both.” That’s what Lincoln president Kumar Galhotra said about the Navigator when it debuted at the 2017 New York Auto Show. He continued, saying, “The sleek styling, spacious interior, and technology are all designed to make each trip effortless.”

Lincoln has worked tirelessly to build back its reputation of class, elegance, and that old-school charm. Take those Matthew McConaughey commercials, for example. He’s wearing a suit – tie gone, collar undone – hand sprawled over the steering wheel after a long day at some white-collar position in a successful career built over time. It’s smooth jazz music playing softly with rain falling on an empty city street; it’s a mellow yet engaging game of poker and coming away with the winning hand. “The feeling stays with you,” the commercial says. It’s this modern, minimalistic yet richly decorated idea of luxury Lincoln is attempting to tie to its brand image. Regardless of the advertisements, if Lincoln keeps building vehicles like the Navigator, the idea should stick.

2016 Lincoln Navigator Concept

2016 Lincoln Navigator Concept

The next evolution of the iconic Navigator SUV has arrived

When Lincoln said that it wanted to make a huge splash at the 2016 New York International Auto Show, they clearly undersold the whole concept of making a splash. The American automaker that made its name in the premium luxury segment has been on the peripherals in recent years, but boy, oh boy, did it pick a good time to spread its wings with the unveiling of the Navigator Concept.

I mean that literally and figuratively because as you can see, it’s got those massive gullwing doors that’s almost out of a Transformers movie. Speaking of size, everything about the Navigator Concept is huge, as if it’s trying to intimidate the rest of the premium SUV segment by flexing its muscles to show that the OG has returned to reclaim the throne it vacated a long time ago.

Like it or not, the Navigator Concept is a showstopper. Don’t count on the production version to be anywhere close to this, but for what it’s worth, Lincoln president Kumar Galhotra did say that the concept provides a “strong hint” on what the production model will look like when it hits the market in 2017. If there’s even an ounce of truth into what Galhotra said, I’m going to be waiting with baited breath to see if the new Navigator has the chops to once again revolutionize the luxury SUV segment.

The early returns from the concept version seems to point in that direction so let’s all hope that Lincoln won’t let us down.

In its latest reinvention, Lincoln has focused on its alphanumeric nameplates and a vision of slick, futuristic luxury.

2012 Lincoln Navigator Hyper Gloss Edition by Anderson Germany

2012 Lincoln Navigator Hyper Gloss Edition by Anderson Germany

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.
