I think he like the new Navi and it is a big step vs the 2014 model, nice to see that they change the ride quality and other stuff

yeah, the same design but the quality is better. I like how the engine's sound!
What I don't like: the brake light should be all the taillight like the Z not only the small part of the each side haha

It sure makes the old Navi look ugly. Not exactly a difficult task, understood. But it looks great nonetheless, especially in that red with creme interior.

I'll agree that it looks better in and out but I'm still disappointed that Lincoln doesn't have a unique instrument panel. The Nav's is the same as my 4 year old Explorer; not appropriate.

Buy American!
Buy Ford!
So say we all...

That's definitely a issue! Even the the new instrument panel the MKZ introduced is very similar to one offered in the Fusion.

I am of the belief that some things should not change, just for the sake of change.
IOW, if the instrument cluster is very functional and familiar and well laid out, as well as clean and elegant looking……leave it alone. Especially something that gets so much of your visual attention. Perhaps it is a familial look that is best anyway. Regardless, they were bounded by the same instrument panel shape and structure anyway, for the most part, so how much change could they effectively implement.

It's just another thing that reminds you of Ford. Something like switchgear and window switches aren't as important in terms of sharing a design (not quality) but I think the instrument panel is more important. It's something that's right in your face and something that shouldn't be so familiar stepping out of a 22k fusion to a 60k navigator in my opinion. They could at least develop a all digital dashboard that could just have different interfaces in different cars. Kind of like cell phones. A Galaxy and a Droid both use Android 4.3 but the interface is different, with different icons, layouts, colors, etc.
