Al Tayer Motors, the official UAE Lincoln importer-dealer, has commenced deliveries of the eagerly awaited all-new Lincoln Navigator. The full-size luxury SUV is available through Al Tayer Motors showrooms in Dubai and the Northern Emirates and Premier Motors showrooms in Abu Dhabi.
The all-new Lincoln Navigator made its regional debut at the Dubai International Motor Show in November to an enthusiastic response in the UAE.
“Interest from customers is very strong and we are excited about the resurgence of this American luxury brand, which began with the Continental last year,” said Ashok Khanna, Chief Executive Officer, Al Tayer Motors. “The all-new Lincoln Navigator is an exceptional product in the seven / eight seat luxury SUV segment and we look forward to a strong performance from the vehicle in the UAE.”
As part of the dealership’s 2018 Ramadan campaign, the all-new Lincoln Navigator is available with five years or 100,000 kilometres warranty and five years or 100,000 kilometres service contract with an added bonus of a one-night stay at the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel for confirmed bookings, subject to availability. The starting price of the vehicle is AED 351,750/- inclusive of Value Added Tax (VAT).
“The all-new Lincoln Navigator’s arrival to the UAE has been our customers’ most anticipated yet,” said Alex Schaeffer, Director, Lincoln Middle East. “The full-size Lincoln Navigator SUV delivers on the Middle East customer’s top three wants; Power, Prestige and Presence.”
Navigator’s elegance is on display before the doors even open. Upon approach, the chrome Lincoln star logo on the grille softly illuminates. Then, LED lighting in the lower front body and tail-lamps subtly engages, and a luminous Lincoln welcome mat appears beneath the front doors.
At night, interior ambient lights sequentially illuminate each of the SUV’s three rows. During the day, a panoramic roof fills the cabin with natural light. A twin-turbo 3.5-litre engine produces best-in-class 450 horsepower and 691 Nm of torque, providing smooth power whenever you need it, delivered through a 10-speed transmission.
Navigator’s lighter, high-strength aluminium-alloy body removes around 90 kg, helping create a more refined ride. Additional weight savings have been reinvested in features such as towing capability and quietness. For example, laminated front and side glass contributes to the quietest Navigator cabin ever.
The all-new Navigator offers speed-dependent adaptive lighting, a new Lincoln technology that provides a wider spread of light at lower speeds for increased visibility – helpful when driving through residential areas. As the vehicle accelerates, the beam of light narrows to help eliminate the glare off signs or other distractions.
Beneath the sleek interior are inclination and intrusion sensors, which trigger an alarm if someone attempts to move or enter the vehicle.
Spacious, Luxurious Interior
Inside, spaciousness comes in all three rows, including storage in each to keep the cabin clean and organised. The all-new Navigator’s advanced cargo management system offers an adjustable shelf behind the rear seats that allows clients to create storage customised to their needs. Even with the vehicle parked on an incline, the feature ensures groceries won’t roll out when the lift gate is opened. The interior layout is clean and uncluttered, with a simple, soothing ambience.
“When designing the Navigator, we put an emphasis on ultra-luxury touch points,” says David Woodhouse, Lincoln design director. “We took everything the client would see and touch, and made sure it would look and feel a little more exuberant, a little more indulgent and incredibly beautiful.”
Staying connected is easy in the all-new Navigator with six USB ports, four 12-volt power outlets and a 230-volt plug. An available wireless phone charger in the first-row centre console media bin eliminates tangled cords. The client experience is further elevated through Lincoln’s new Personal Profile. It uses the key fob to recall individual driver preferences for adapting seat, mirror and pedal positions, as well as climate control and entertainment settings.
For owners desiring a more personalised look, Navigator comes with three Lincoln Presidential options – an exclusive collection of interior design themes and materials, plus a host of membership privileges.
The Navigator, with its segment-leading second and third row space, also comes
with three second-row configurations – three-person bench, two captain’s chairs with console, or two captain’s chairs with the convenience of a pass through. For customers wanting more storage, the Navigator L adds more than 430 litres of extra space behind the third row.
First-Class Seating For All
Even when the all-new Navigator is fully packed, each occupant can sit in comfort. The driver and front-seat passenger enjoy Perfect Position Seats, which offer massage, heating and cooling functionality, and can be adjusted up to 30 different ways.
Standard SYNC® 3 with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™** compatibility enables clients to manage audio, phone, navigation and more from the vehicle touch screen or steering wheel-mounted controls. Second-row passengers have their own audio and climate control, while third-row seats feature power recline capability.
A standard rear-seat entertainment system allows passengers to stream content wirelessly with an Android device to one of the 10-inch adjustable screens mounted on the rear of the front seats. Content also can be accessed from SD cards, an HDMI cable or USB drive.
Each screen can display different content, allowing a personalised entertainment experience for every passenger. Clients can enjoy available Revel® Ultima audio with 20 speakers that work in concert with Navigator’s interior design and acoustics. This transforms the cabin into a personal theatre with three distinct listening modes – stereo, audience and on-stage.
Navigator is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. A 12-inch configurable instrument cluster allows drivers to choose the information they want displayed. An available Head-Up Display can show selected information on the windshield instead of the instrument cluster. Lincoln’s HUD is the brightest and clearest in the segment, with class-exclusive polarised sunglasses support, allowing drivers keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
It’s also easy to adjust to changing conditions. With the turn of a dial, the driver can adapt the Navigator to changing road or weather, and enjoy a smooth, confident ride.
