Lincoln Navigator One Ultra-Luxe Debuts In China

The Lincoln Navigator has had a difficult time in the United States, where it has been recalled several times in recent months. However, sales in the country remain relatively stable, and it appears that the Chinese market is also playing a significant role in the Navigator’s successful business case. To commemorate its flagship SUV’s market performance in the People’s Republic, the automaker introduces a new special edition model.

The Navigator One is a super luxurious version of the model available only in China, with a production run of only 30 units. It is based on the Navigator L long-wheelbase variant, which was unveiled last week at the Chengdu Motor Show. It has features that are not available on the US-spec Navigator and are likely to remain exclusive to the Navigator One.

What was once a three-row family hauler has been transformed into a luxury cocoon for two passengers in captain’s chairs at the back. A tablet is installed in a massive centre armrest, allowing easy control of the machine’s luxury features at the back. These features include starlight LED elements integrated into the roof liner, a TV screen for infotainment functions, and a sound bar that sits coast-to-coast under the TV.

The highlight of the interior extras has to be the Jian ware tea set. The devil is in the details, as evidenced by the grate on the console for pouring away tea, a common Chinese tea serving practise. On the outside, the Navigator One is distinguished by its two-tone silver-purple paint color and 22-inch wheels.

There is no information on the engine, but we believe it is a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 mill. It produces 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque in this application, which is distributed to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Navigator One order books opened during the Chengdu Motor Show, and we’re hearing that all 30 units have already been sold.
