No matter where your allegiances lie, you can’t deny the appeal of Lincoln’s new Navigator. Using lessons learned in the F150 trucks, the Navigator is almost completely aluminum. Under the hood is the familiar 3.5 liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6.
This engine is no stranger to John Hennessey and his team. They dream of boost every night, so when the Navigator arrived it was time to dispense with the stock intake and exhaust. Using the same secret sauce that powers the VelociRaptor 600 in the video below, a giant intercooler and dual 3″ exhaust allow the stock turbos to reach their full potential.Two big blow-off valves allow for quick changes in boost, and the wastegate control is matched to the increased exhaust flow.
The result is a full-size family hauler that will reach 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and run a 12.9 quarter-mile at 107 mph. This is faster than most cars at your local drag night. How sad it must feel to be beaten by a V6 SUV! Just like all other builds from Hennessey Performance Engineering, the HPE 600 Navigator comes with a 3 year/36,000 warranty and each one is tuned on the dyno and on the street. Options include Brembo front brakes (recommended), 22″ monoblock wheels and a 2″ lowering kit. Click the link below for more information and stay with us for all your Hennessey news.
