You were hoping they would make a better first impression with the next-gen, I assume?

IDK how much name recognition the Navi has in China, but if it doesn't have much, then a weak first introduction in China could be very bad, I assume. Lincoln's marketing (esp. in China right now)seems to take a "fake it til you make it" approach, where they imply their cars are as good most other luxury vehicles, and hope that people buy it, at least until their cars actually are that good. If people buy it, and buy their cars, it will pay off, but if they don't...

actually, China would be an excellent excuse for immediately replacing the T with my X-skinned-Flex

edit: I shoulda said 3 vehicles without the Navi before ... I blame the snowstorm

Re: 2016 Navigator On Sale in China!

The Navigator is such a mediocre product relative to other modern Lincolns, I think it's a mistake to launch it so late in its lifecycle and this close to a new one. But I'm sure it'll work out fine.

Well for the price they are charging it's probably just a way to get quick profits for Lincoln.

Anyone else notice that particular Navigator had what appear to be the new F-150's mirrors? I wonder if that'll happen with ours, or if it's just for Chinese models.

I was wondering if it would have clear tail lights but they are all red I am guessing the turn signals are in the clear parts.

Correct. In our version, the amber turn signals light up the entire center clear portion in both the fender-mounted taillight as well as the liftgate clear portion. While the reverse light is the clear area at the bottom of the fender light.

The Navigator in the US has Amber LED turn indicators witch extends to the overlap on the truck, a nice detail.
