Ford has been talking Bold for some time, but if there is one vehicle that epitomizes bold, that vehicle would be the restyled Navigator. The new Navigator wears one of the most dramatic grilles the industry has seen in many years. The restyled/re-engineered Navigator gains a L model that adds over 14 inches to the length of the cargo area increasing the cargo hold by over 25 cubic feet.
The Lincoln brand gets a new five passenger crossover vehicle to chase the likes of the Lexus RX. Closely related to the Ford Edge, the MKX wears distinct front and rear styling and features a more upscale interior.
The Lincoln Zephyr becomes the MKZ as Lincoln switches to a three letter naming system (sort of). The naming system has drawn criticism because the letters are somewhat arbitrary.
The Lincoln LS leaves the lineup leaving the Town Car as the sole surviving RWD Lincoln.
