Lincoln revealed the Navigator 2009

Lincoln revealed the Navigator 2009, a SUV coming with improved economy of fuel: EPA-estimated on 14 mpg city plus 20 mpg highway at 4X2 units. The Navigator runs with a V-8 three-valve Triton, 5.4 liter, fitted to an automatic 6-speed transmission, generating 300 hp plus 365 lbs-ft torque.

For the Lincoln 2009 offers 3 new colors on the exterior: Monterey Grey Clearcoat Metallic; White Platinum Tri-Coat and Sangria Clearcoat Metallic and a brand new package: 2009 Monochrome Limited Edition Package features one of a kind badging, alongside with the exterior body-color accents with lower grille too, lower bodyside cladding, plus power folding memory heated mirrors. This wrap is offered in 4 exterior monochromatic treatments: Vapor Silver Clearcoat Metallic, Black Clearcoat, Stone Green Clearcoat Metallic and White Platinum Tri-coat. The set includes, on the inside, rare black carpet plus floor mats, unique Stone, Camel seats having inserts of black leather, black piping and Ebony wood trim.

"You’ll notice the difference," affirmed John Rich, the powertrain integration , program manager at Ford Trucks. "We’ve improved the attributes and performance significantly."

"Deceleration is when you take your foot off the accelerator and you’re coasting and the system very aggressively shuts fuel off," comments Rich. "It sounds simple, but it’s not at all simple. To make this work, we had to carefully manage the complex and constantly changing air-fuel mixture caused by aggressively shutting off fuel flow."

"It’s so sophisticated, it’s imperceptible to the customer," Rich continued. "There’s no bump, no hesitation. The catalyst systems come back to life without taking an emissions hit."
