2018 Lincoln Navigator Mark X Coupe
Not every SUV/Crossover needs to have four doors. Not every buyer needs the maximum space afforded by near-vertical rear compartments, either. My latest Photoshop creation was created for people who prefer the longer doors of a two door vehicle, aiding greatly in entrance to the front seat. The sloping roofline covers fitted luggage designed to maximize the rear compartment.
This is my take on such an über luxury vehicle for 2018, the Lincoln Navigator Mark X Coupe. Did I mention it has a twin-turbo V12/Hybrid drivetrain? The famed "Mark" series migrates to the exclusive all-aluminum Navigator platform for the first time in history, affording outstanding room and capability to the luxury class.
Starting with the new-for-2018 Navigator 4-door, I lengthened the body ahead of the cowl by about 8-inches to accommodate the longer V12 powertrain. Longer doors maximize entry into the front compartment and a programmable entry system features remote access to the First Class-level individual rear seats. The exclusive V12 drivetrain features twin turbochargers and hybrid-assist and is combined with an also-exclusive electronically controlled 12-speed transmission.
I think Lincoln is coming along nicely with their new Continental-inspired front ends but I still think it needs more developing. For this Mark rendering, I added a brushed chrome header to the existing grille space and added the LINCOLN name to it. I think it completes the front end.
