Unless you’re a special kind of person, the first thing you think of when you look at the Navigator probably isn’t “needs more horsepower.” John Hennessey is a special kind of person.
The Lincoln Navigator is Ford’s answer to old-world luxury, packing size, sumptuous materials, and over-the-top quality (the luxury trifecta).
It stands to reason then, that all that’s left is to give a hard kick in the pants to make hustle a little more.
“The 2018 Navigator is a world-class luxury SUV and we wanted to take its already impressive power and performance to the next level,” said John Hennessey. “Over the past 12 months we have built and delivered hundreds of VelociRaptor 600 upgrades to our new Ford Raptor clients. It made perfect sense to offer a similar upgrade package for the new Navigator, which has essentially the same engine.”
Power rises from a respectable 450 to 600 hp, thanks to a high-flow air induction system, a turbo wastegate modifier, intercooling upgrades, ECU mods, and more.
All of this is good for a 0-60 time of 4.8 seconds—let that sink in—and a quarter mile time of 12.9 seconds at 107 mph.
And to make sure you look as good as you go, Hennessey also lowers the Navigator, fits some big Brembos, and clads them in 22-inch Monoblock wheels.
