Lincoln Navigator by Hennessey Packs Whopping 600HP

America`s finest Hennessey Performance tuning firm creates one of the most impressive programs on American muscle cars, however, from time to time, the technicians also turn their attention towards other types of models, like the Lincoln Navigator SUV visualized in the media gallery below.

The Lincoln Navigator is a genuine American SUV, built with a bulk body style and evolutionary design. However, the carmaker puts emphasis on luxury interior and not necessarily on power under the hood. And this is where tuners like Hennessey intervene.

The last time we`ve heard about the tuner`s creation was in Geneva where it presented the magnificent built on the Venom GT, and perhaps this Lincoln Navigator might also get its “15 minutes of fame” during an upcoming auto event. And who knows, it might be the 2018 New York Auto Show, opening its gates on March 30.

The Lincoln Navigator in question remains faithful to its stock design and interior highlights. I mean, why spoiling something that is already luxurious and beautiful? However, in the engine department, things are looking completely different.

Mechanically, the Lincoln Navigator by Hennessey has received lowered suspension, high-performance Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers and 15.1-inch brake rotors. About these new enhancements, Hennessey stated that “our family has owned and driven several high-powered GMG Denalis and Escalades over the past five years. We are now very pleased to have a high-powered Lincoln to add to our family fleet.”

In the stock form, the Lincoln Navigator uses a 3.5-liter bi-turbo V6 engine, the same one used underneath the Ford F-150 Raptor, developing 450 horsepower. However, with the tuner`s 150 extra horsepower, the SUV in question becomes the first custom-build model to receive such amount of power.

Hennessey also commented on the SUV`s new power output. “The 2018 Navigator is a world-class luxury SUV and we wanted to take its already impressive power and performance to the next level.”

“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,” Hennessey also concluded.

The engine modifications refer to an ECU remapping, high-flow air induction system, large front-mounted intercooler system and new stainless steel exhaust, all allowing a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds.
