Lincoln Crosses U.S. Borders to Unveil MKX Concept

The Lincoln Motor Company has unveiled a new MKX Concept at the 2014 Beijing International Motor Show, hinting at a new global SUV that should make waves in both the Chinese and American markets. This is the first time Lincoln goes beyond U.S. borders to reveal a concept vehicle and we think the MKX was the perfect choice to mark the occasion. With its sloping teardrop roofline, wide shoulders, and dynamic side undercuts, the MKX Concept looks stunning as well as refreshing. “Concept vehicles are defined by every design detail,” said David Woodhouse, Lincoln design director, “and this MKX Concept shows how Lincoln’s thoughtful design philosophy continues to evolve.

2015 Lincoln Navigator Features Ultra-Luxurious Ziricote Wood

Ziricote wood—it’s not your everyday kind of wood. It’s an exotic hardwood found in only a few parts of the world. Its rarity and quality has made it a perfect match for luxury yachts, fine furniture, and even some premium acoustic guitars. Now, you’ll also find it in the new 2015 Lincoln Navigator, adorning the doors panels, instrument panel, center console, and steering wheel. In an effort to preserve its natural quality, no stains or dyes were added to the wood other than a thin protective coat. “Altering the ziricote wood would blemish its beauty,” said Barb Whalen, color and material design manager. “You can’t improve on nature.” This special…




All-New Navigator Comes with Luxurious and Exclusive Ziricote Wood Materials

It’s a material usually reserved for high-caliber products like yachts, high-class furniture, and even the best quality acoustic guitars; all of which means, it’s perfect and fitting for the 2015 Lincoln Navigator, the most luxurious full-size SUV on the new car market, in America or otherwise. What is “it,” then? It’s ziricote wood, a tropical hardwood hailing from South America, the southern part of Europe and even northern Africa, and it’s only available on the Reserve Package of the Lincoln Navigator, which will hit dealerships later this year. “Luxury customers understand design and especially desire customized design,” said Barb Whalen, color and material design manager. “The beautiful, natural color and…




Lincoln Navigator Loaded with Luxury, Inside and Out

Close your eyes. Picture a luxury-laden full-size SUV. That image you’ve got in your head, the graceful and streamlined sculpture of steel and chrome with beautiful leather seating visible inside the coolly tinted windows? That’s the Lincoln Navigator. It starts where all great vehicles start—right under the hood. There you’ll find a Flex-Fuel 5.4L V8 engine that, when paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, jets out 310 horsepower but still manages a healthy 20 mpg highway rating. Sticking with the undercarriage, there’s also a Multi-Link Rear Suspension and a Control Trac 4WD System down there at your disposal. You can control all these powerful systems from your seat behind the…
