• Hennessey is the First Tuner to Offer Performance Upgrades For 2018 Lincoln Navigator

Sealy, Texas—AMG G-Wagon and Range Rover SVR owners beware:  There’s a new luxury SUV in town and its packing 600 horsepower:  The 2018 Lincoln Navigator by Hennessey Performance (HPE).  Hennessey is the first aftermarket firm to offer performance upgrades for the redesigned 2018 Lincoln Navigator.

“The 2018 Navigator is a world-class luxury SUV and we wanted to take its already impressive power and performance to the next level,” said president and company founder, John Hennessey.  “Over the past 12 months we have built and delivered hundreds of VelociRaptor 600 upgrades to our new Ford Raptor clients.  It made perfect sense to offer a similar upgrade package for the new Navigator, which has essentially the same engine.”

The team from Hennessey increased the factory’s twin turbo 3.5L V6 engine from 450 bhp to 600 bhp by modifying the airflow through the engine. The HPE600 twin turbo engine upgrade includes engine management computer software upgrades, high-flow air induction system, stainless steel exhaust system upgrade, large front-mounted intercooler system with blow-off valve upgrade combine to crank out an extra 150bhp over the stock model.

After upgrades, the 2018 Hennessey Navigator is capable of going 0-60mph in 4.8 secs and can run the 1/4-mile in 12.9 seconds at 107 mph.  Additional performance upgrades including Hennessey forged monoblock wheels, lowered suspension and Brembo brakes with 6-piston calipers and 15.1 inch brake rotors are also available to balance the increase in power.

The HPE600 upgrade comes with a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty from Hennessey.  The company only plans to offer 200 units for the first year making the Hennessey Navigator very exclusive.  Orders can be placed directly with Hennessey or through authorized Hennessey Lincoln dealers.

John Hennessey added, “Our family has owned and driven several high-powered GMC Denalis and Escalades over the past five years.  We are now very pleased to have a high-powered Lincoln to add to our family fleet.  But I probably won’t get as much seat time as I would like as my wife, Hope, will probably get the keys to our special Lincoln before I do!”
