A Navigator-based Town Car?
Recent news has disclosed that Land Rover is serious about bringing a new flagship sedan, dubbed the Road Rover, to market. Jack Baruth over at Road and Track has speculated that the only way for them to bring a new flagship to market for a reasonable cost and development time, would be to base it on the Range Rover chassis.
This brings up the obvious question, could Lincoln do a new Towncar based on a lowered, chopped, formal-roof variant of the Navigator? Would there be a worth-while market for such a vehicle if it were to cost, say, $80k and up, and be worth every penny?
BTW, I worked in the research department of a large corporation that had an active suspension program going for many years. Land Rover was very interested in the technology back when they were still owned by Ford, but they never pulled the trigger on a licencing deal. I'm thinking this proposed Road Rover will be quite a tour-de-force, technology-wise.
