Lincoln Navicross Concept Signals New Design and New Segment

February 10, 2003

The Lincoln Navicross concept vehicle, developed by Ford Motor Co., is designed as a breakthrough all-conditions sport sedan that, according to Lincoln, “shatters the accepted car, crossover, and sport/utility vehicle paradigm.” Ford went on to say, “Defining Navicross with traditional vehicle segment descriptions is difficult because it is neither as a sport coupe, sport sedan, nor a sport/utility, yet serves many of the purposes of all three.” The Navicross is based on a modified Lincoln LS platform and deploys a full-time all-wheel-drive system with an adaptive traction control system. The sedan has a coupe look with center opening, B-pillarless rear doors. Navicross has a similar size and shape of that of a sport sedan combined with a sport wagon with the ground clearance and breakover angles of a sport/utility vehicle.
