The Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey presented an SUV that shook things up at the New York Auto Show. He told the crowd that he is happy to see Lincoln doing so well and as a fan he is thrilled about that. The new 2017 Lincoln Navigator concept is one big vehicle. For some it is a monster on the road. But it is also an elegant SUV. It can carry its weight. The Lincoln president Kumar Galhotra said about this SUV. “The design language is all about elegant beauty. To take a vehicle that has that much volume and make it elegant is a fun challenge.” The main rivals of this brand are Lexus, Inifiniti, Cadillac and Escalade.
2017 Lincoln Navigator Concept Design
Exterior and Interior
Lincoln design was always aggressive and sharp, but the Navigator made a few changes. Today this SUV is merging elegance, beauty, serenity and harmony. This description comes from the president Kumar Galhotra. It is a family car that is all about safety and elegance. The Navigator has a really weird gull-wing doors. Many car writers had compared them to a pterodactyl wing. But do not worry, it will not be on a production model. Inside there are large screens for everybody in the car. Kids can use it to play video games against each other. Or the whole family can watch a movie. Each screen has its own Car Play. From safety features there are lane-keeping assist, pedestrian detection, pre-collision assists, automatic braking wired to radar and camera sensors.
