Lincoln – You Navigator YOU!

July 29, 2015

So I was asked to take on one of the BEST projects I will ever come upon in my career this past weekend. To drive the Lincoln Navigator from Dubai to Oman and stay at the fabulous Six Senses Zighy Bay resort, enjoy the incredible scenery and facilities, and drive back! How could i say no? I wouldn’t!
From the very start, everything was perfect, from the moment the car was dropped off to me, I knew it was going to be a good experience. A good experience it was.
The drive was as smooth as can be, and that’s saying a lot, keeping in mind the bumpy (partly-unfinished) roads from Dubai to Oman. Something about the drive kept me feeling safe, I’m not sure if it was the size of the car, or just the Advance Trac feature in the car. For those of you that don’t know what an Advance Trac feature is, sit down and take notes. The Advanced Trac feature uses gyroscopic sensors to measure vehicle roll and turning rates,it helps provide stability during sharp turns. The system applies brake pressure and reduces engine power to minimize skidding.
The new Navigator is powered by a standard 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged direct-injection
EcoBoost V6 engine. It has the power to produce 380 horsepower at 5,250 rpm and 460 lb.-ft.
of torque at 2,750 rpm. That’s saying a lot!
You want more, The engine is mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission,
which allows the driver to manually control gears if desired, and is
available in both four-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive configurations (that was a mouth full).
I do have to say though that by far one of my favourite features of the car has to be, no not the voice command, but the navigation system, duh!. It was a whole new experience for me and made getting to Oman so easy (while I thought I was bound to get lost between the mountain rocks…) The experience over all was one I will never forget, especially when you are cushioned in on the softest leather seats (that can cool or warm itself with a push of a button), It simply doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to an SUV!
Thank you Lincoln.
