Sometimes there are people who have the guts and budget to do what
Detroit can't. The 2006 Lincoln Navigator never got the big power
treatment from Ford's SVT division, but this very special custom
build gives you the opportunity to have a supercharged V8 to go
with your impressive Elite-level luxury package.
This one loves to give a mean and premium first impression... all
thanks to a midnight style. Sleek black paint and deeply tinted
windows establish the attitude. This is an Elite trim level
Navigator, and so it even comes with impressive features like the
deploying side steps - also done in black. Plus, the upgraded
24-inch alloys make sure this has a great custom style. And all
this darkness also lets the hints of brightness really pop. You see
it in premium factory pieces like the large waterfall grille. It
also helps to highlight upgrades like the bright LED halo
headlights and the polished quad exhaust tips that hint at all the
extra power under the hood.
The interior is an ideal mix of lower mileage luxury cruiser and
the right well-integrated upgrades. It starts with supple leather
seats and white piping that look like they were borrowed from the
days when Ford owned Range Rover. And you have three rows of
seating - first two with bucket seats - to basically have enough
room for everyone. There's a huge list of factory features, like
heated/ventilated front seats, power front seats, power-adjustable
pedals, cruise control, power windows, power locks, keyless
entry/alarm, power mirrors, dual airbags, side airbags, a sunroof,
and automatic A/C climate control. And while the factory gauges
have a clean and bright glow, we bet your favorite readouts to
watch are the additional ones mounted on top of the dash. We have
receipts showing thousands $$$$ invested in a new audio system.
This includes a Pioneer AM/FM/XM touchscreen infotainment system up
front, TV/DVD screens in the headrests, and a full audio system
that includes a subwoofer center console for the second row and
another speaker box behind the third row. So it's an ideal mix
where you can have a comfortable SUV that can carry plenty of
family and friends, or you can turn up the bass and have a booming
custom cruiser at a moment's notice.
Part of the receipt file shows a major investment in upgrading the
powerhouse. It was given a new 2nd gen Lightning block. That means
a 5.4-liter V8 that was made to handle the supercharger on top.
This was a professional build done by a Ford/Lincoln specialist.
They even made sure it inhales deeper with an upgraded air intake,
and it exhales with added power and authority as long tube headers
feed an X-pipe dual exhaust. The ZF six-speed automatic
transmission is sturdy and versatile to be able to handle this
added power. But this trans also helps tell this powerful SUV's
full story. After all, when you combine the overdrive transmission
with the power steering and an upgraded four-wheel power disc brake
package, you have the recipe for a very comfortable and capable
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker and build
receipts. There are a few details that you'd likely address on your
own time, like new tires and updating the air ride suspension.
They're the kind of things that take an impressively-built custom
and reinforce it to be a better all-around cruiser. After all,
there's nothing quite like supple leather on the inside and
supercharged power under the hood. That's why you know the deal on
this Lightning-powered Navigator will be moving lightning-quick.
