I am glad to see the full width tail light is still there
Nice to see blue on the interior again
Tablet style nav screen (they can integrate a large screen into the dash and not make it look cheap, see the S Class)
Grille might be a tad bit too large
Unfortunately we don't even know squat going forward with this because this is a really over the top concept. The interior will look very different IMO.
No idea on powertrain all they say is 400 HP and I can sympathize with wanting a V8 since that is a status symbol HOWEVER going back to a V8 at this point may seem like a step back no? Should there be a higher HP model though?
I am getting a very strong Range Rover vibe...
I hope that pop up nav screen is NOT there in the production model. I was happy Ford and Lincoln were not going that route and still doing the in dash design. To me it just looks cheap sticking up out of the dash like that.
I said in another thread= imho they "theatricalized"** the production styling for the concept...not quite to a caricature degree but
that simplified/made things less subtle than I expect/hope for the production Navi
I also hope the interior carries over all the FEEL if not all details(of course)
imho there's room on the dash for my rant about a large screen that's HALF(?) buried most of the time, leaving a wide-not-tall section &
then raises when needed (prolley won't try chopping that...)
oh...I've started (more) ranting about the gen2 3.5T having a high-output version with 525-550hp
& std at least 440hp
those who think those're too much, check out the little Alfa Guilia, imho
I think you'll see a bit more in the way of sheetmetal creases toward the bottom of the door (where the gullwing and step separate) in the production model.
It's not really just the tapered roof wings. It the roof combined with the blacked out pillars COMBINED with the uprake of the bottom of the rear bumper. All those things combined is what leads to the Range Roverness.
...the exterior design of the concept...it's so over the top...only maybe 20% seems logical
I made small changes to the rocker trim (needs more imho) and tried to add a "fullness" above the rear wheel to the FLAT full-length crease
+ wonder IF, when we can see-THRU the C-to-D-pillar window...
IF those differences will 'bring back' more SUVness that Rover-ness?
...You can't call this "Quiet Luxury" and have gullwing doors and a toboggan sliding out of the side...
...of the major outlets are talking...
That being said, I've heard the production version is impressive (not over the top like this concept).
If I can akin the concept debuts of the Continental and Navigator to **

guess I've got a diff idea of Quiet:
- doors silently swinging up
- steps gliding down
- serene interior ... with the silent chrome ripples
