You know, sometimes people (most often they occur in the criminal environment), by his presence the dominance over others. In the air there is a certain atmosphere of threat. Very similar feeling you experience when you go down the street next to the NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR new “Navigator”. Even if you sit behind the wheel of a solid machine, easy inferiority complex still can not avoid. Flagship “Lincoln” – a very persuasive vehicle. Length, like a limousine. Height as the bus. Mass, like a small yacht. In short, “all stand up and be afraid!” How do you term “right car” instead of the traditional “control”? Yes, it sounds strange. But the word “change” best describes the process of driving a gigantic SUV NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR. Here even the appropriate comparison with the coaches of the XIX century NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR, served, by the way, transport for the people of the same social standing, who now commute to Lincoln. After all, in fact, the coach ran the team of horses, which the driver just gave “orders” the reins and a whip … About these thoughts swirling in my head when I sat behind the wheel of the new “Navigator“, left out of the gates salon NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR “and under the baggy-wheel drive car slowly rolled down the first kilometers of the Leningrad highway. After all, when you turn the steering wheel or press the pedal, it almost does not meet the response of resistance (all mechanisms generously flavored with powerful amplifiers). In other words, you are just giving “orders”, which can then be executed somewhere in the bowels of the machine compliant mechanisms. Generally, these habits are inherent in many American NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR cars of high class, but “Lincoln Navigator ’2003″ they erected in the absolute. NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR

As befits a great car, born on the opposite side of the Atlantic, suspension “Navigator” is extremely smooth. On the bumpy road car rides with the dignity and importance of the yacht, imposingly swaying with the waves. Demonstrated a similar pattern and the former “Navigator“, which I had to try on highways NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR near Moscow five years ago. The new model is definitely softer on the bad road, because, unlike its predecessor, the rear suspension is not installed a hard bridge (the thing in itself contributes to shake), and an independent mechanism that resembles those which are provided with representation sedans NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR. Of course, this is a minus in terms of endurance on the roads (there spoil the independent suspension is much easier than a solid axle), but, honestly, ask yourself: if I become the owner of the “Navigator”, whether I am the mud puddle? And if your answer is yes, then it is unclear why have you read this article. Take an interest-ka prices “Land Rover” or NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR. Premiere of “Lincoln Navigator” was held in January at the Detroit Motor Show.

Learning then that the new SUV was fully independent suspension, has suggested that NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR has confidence to behave at higher speeds than its predecessor … When we conducted the first test of the Navigator, paired with him rodeNEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR (both SUV built on the same footing, and the company “Ford” continues this tradition, since simultaneously with the NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR debuted a new “Expedition”). I remember when we did the paired images of SUVs on the move, the photographer gestures demanded that the “Navigator” and “Expedition” raced almost right next to each other – side by side on multilane highways. I felt at that moment a few unpleasant moments, as at about 100 km / h both SUV NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR because of its super soft suspension slightly roamed from side to side and could easily rub bokamiUvy, despite the fully independent suspension, the nature of the “Navigator” kept this feature . Side by side with other cars, this time I did not go, but quite clearly felt like after 140 km / h off-road begins to require frequent taxiings that, of course, is tiring. In my opinion, the normal cruising speed for this SUV is 120-130 km / h. NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR

From the previous paragraph, many could do absolutely erroneous conclusion that “Lincoln Navigator” – not the best car. Of course, it is not. SUV designed in America, for America, and is addressed to those who love real American cars NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR. And so drivers superkomfortnaya suspension is much more important precise handling at high speeds, for the achievement of which to shtatovskih highway you shtrafanut so that then the rest of his life will keep even the speed of its benzokosilki when you decide once again to cut the lawn. However, the devil has beguiled me: in the area recently built NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR, it is absolutely smooth and utterly deserted highway, I broke up that whopper to the limit of 190 km / h. And then once again proved that the “Navigator” is not suitable for racing on highways in the NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR style, because the machine is sensitive to side wind, which is not surprising when its gigantic dimensions, and “chopped” the design of a giant body. Generally, high standards of dzhipovskim maximum speed – a kind of side effect from using the powerful motor. NEW LINCOLN NAVIGATOR

Timeless Lincoln design and luxury amenities meet full-size SUV capability in the opulent 2011 Lincoln Navigator, a vehicle with performance and style that set it apart in the premium full-size SUV market. Navigator provides a unique blend of functionality, versatility and comfort that continues to bring new buyers into Lincoln showrooms.
Newly standard for Navigator owners is a voice-activated Navigation System with SIRIUS Travel Link that lets customers access up-to-the-minute information and entertainment content through the vehicle’s navigation system. The information includes current gas prices from an estimated 120,000 filling stations, up-to-the-minute traffic information for 78 markets, weather conditions, sports scores and movie listings in the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia.
Music lovers will enjoy the addition of HD Radio technology, included with the voice-activated navigation system. HD Radio enables more listening options and digital sound quality. No additional equipment or cost is involved. To use HD Radio, listeners simply tune in their favorite station. If the station is broadcasting with HD Radio technology, the system automatically picks up the signal and will transition to digital audio once decoded.

For peace of mind on journeys of any length, Navigator is aided by exclusive AdvanceTrac with RSC, including standard Trailer Sway Control. Trailer Sway Control works in conjunction with AdvanceTrac with RSC to detect trailer sway through the motions of the vehicle and take measures – such as applying precise braking and reducing engine torque – to bring both vehicle and trailer under control.
AdvanceTrac with RSC delivers a level of performance that competitive stability control systems can’t match. Unlike competitor systems, AdvanceTrac with RSC uses a second gyroscopic roll-rate sensor to determine the vehicle’s body roll angle and roll rate.
If the unique roll-rate sensor detects a significant roll angle, the system applies additional countermeasures – such as applying brakes to one or more wheels or reducing engine power – to keep the wheels firmly planted.
In the event of an accident, Navigator is equipped with the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™, where the horn and emergency flashers are activated should airbags deploy. Other safety features include Safety Canopy® side-curtain airbags, a rollover detection system and dual-stage front airbags that deploy with varying power based on crash severity, the driver’s seat position and seat belt usage. Front seat side airbags provide extra protection in the event of a side impact.

•Persistent Belt-Minder® chime
•Limited top speed of 80 mph
•Traction control system that limits tire spin cannot be deactivated

2010 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost
2010 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost.There were quite a few years when Lincoln and the rest of the Ford family lost its appeal to the younger crowd, save for the ever-popular Ford Mustang. Over the last few years however, Ford has expended great effort, with success we might add, in redesigning, reengineering, and expanding their family of cars, with particular emphasis on the Lincoln brand. From physical design to branding strategy, Lincoln has certainly been re-invented. The MKZ and MKX have done well for the brand over the past few years, and the MKS was very well received by the public. Now, Lincoln brings to the market an all new full-size, three-row, luxury crossover that some will love and quite frankly, others will not.
2010 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost
2010 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost.Based on the chassis of the 2010 Ford Flex, the 2010 Lincoln MKT features a sharp, sleek design, that seems almost aerodynamic, and looks like a retro-styled vehicle based on an old 1930?s Lincoln or Cadillac. Aesthetics being a matter of personal taste however, join us after the jump as we see how everything between the doors and under the hood measure up.
2010 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost
2010 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost.Though they share a chassis, the 2010 Ford Flex and MKT have totally different bodies, and that is unfortunate for the MKT. While the MKT does sport some very elegant lines and shaping from some angles, it comes off as an obnoxious eyesore from others; particularly the rear, and we feel that this takes away from the overall visual experience of the vehicle.
The MKT looks decidedly-Lincoln with its split-wing grille, beveled shoulder-line chamfer, and flowing cantrail, full-width horizontal tail-lamps that gracefully flow and wrap themselves around the magnesium power lift-gate. The Panoramic fixed glass Vista roof, body-color rear spoiler, HID headlamps, and heated exterior mirrors complete the look and add a rich and luxurious look. Other exterior amenities include: Lincoln’s SecuriCode invisible keypad, reverse camera and sensor.
All of this sits standard on a set of 19-inch premium painted aluminum wheels, but a 20-inch polished aluminum wheel option is available.
