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 wood will be featured in the Reserve Package of the 2015 Lincoln Navigator in addition to several other luxury amenities, including ultra-luxurious leather for all three rows of seats and a hand-wrapped leather instrument panel with contrast stitching.
Expect to find the 2015 Navigator in the Lincoln of Troy showroom this fall.
