In the world of modern design it is very difficult to look at a new car, do not see the similarities with another car, already familiar to you, so just the fact that some elements of the concept car suggests to us on the Range Rover. In the end, there are more important things which you should focus your attention.
Lincoln Navigator Concept is unique-in-class machine, with huge doors “gull-wing”, rising up, and three-way staircases on both sides, with huge external dimensions of the body and interior, capable of a high quality service to place second passengers in individual seats, with huge luggage compartment.
The appearance of the concept is impressive at first sight. American designers abandoned the image of the brutal off-road vehicle when creating new products and inspiration from… yachts and large sailing boats. Even the color of the exterior and interior trim are not randomly selected, and alludes to the theme of the sea – aquamarine (celadon).
More likely that production version of 2018 Navigator will have ordinary doors and more utilitarian exterior design.
