Hennessey Upgrade Brings 2018 Lincoln Navigator up to 600 HP

Motortrend News Feed - Tue, 03/20/2018 - 19:00

The 2018 Lincoln Navigator is a fine luxury SUV to start with, but if you want to stand out from the crowd, Hennessey offers performance upgrades that will turn your premium ute into a three-ton missile.

“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 John Hennessey, company president, in a statement. “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 Texas tuner increased the stock twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine from 450 hp to 600 hp by installing new engine management software, a high-flow air induction system, stainless steel exhaust system, and a large front-mounted intercooler with blow-off valve upgrade.

With the power upgrades, the Navigator can sprint from 0-60 mph in a claimed 4.8 seconds and complete the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds at 107 mph, according to Hennessey. Other optional performance goodies include forged monoblock wheels, a lowered suspension, Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers, and 15.1-inch brake rotors to help slow this heavy hitter down.

“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,” said Hennessey. “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!”

The new HPE600 upgrade kit costs $19,950 installed, and includes a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty from Hennessey. The company plans to build 200 copies of its super Navigator this year.

These 7 Concepts are Headed to the 2018 Easter Jeep Safari

Motortrend News Feed - Tue, 03/20/2018 - 18:20

Every spring, when Jeep heads to Moab for the annual Easter Jeep Safari, it builds a handful of heavily customized concepts to show off for the week. They’ll never go into production, but that doesn’t make them any less awesome. A few days ago, we saw teasers of what looked to be a Jeepster-themed Wrangler and an off-road-ready pickup truck, but today Jeep revealed all seven of this year’s concepts. As always, they look ridiculously cool.

Jeep 4Speed

Jeep says the lightweight 4Speed was built to be a follow-up to two previous concepts: the Pork Chop from 2011 and the Stitch from 2013. To save weight, the hood, fenders, and rear tub are made out of carbon fiber, while other body panels are now aluminum. The roll cage and windshield have also been raked back for a sportier look. And while the wheelbase hasn’t changed, the 4Speed is 22 inches shorter than a stock Wrangler.

Under the hood, it gets Jeep’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder paired with an eight-speed automatic. It rides 2 inches higher than stock, gets Dana 44 front and rear axles, a 4.10 gear ratio, 18-inch wheels, and 35-inch mud-terrain tires.

Jeep Sandstorm

Jeep says the Sandstorm was built to be a Baja racer that could still be used as a daily driver. It gets a vented carbon fiber hood, vented front and rear fenders, a cage that integrates a spare tire, chopped rear doors, and no rear swing gate. Jeep also added modified rock rails, tubular front and rear bumpers, an onboard air compressor, a race-style fuel filler, front auxiliary lights, and a chase light.

Under the hood, it gets a 6.4-liter V-8 paired with a six-speed manual transmission. After moving the front axle forward 4 inches and the rear axle back 2 inches, Jeep added a custom suspension that offers 14 inches of travel up front and 18 inches of travel out back. Dynatrac 60 axles with a 5.68 gear ratio were also swapped in, as well as 17-inch beadlock wheels and 39.5-inch off-road tires.

Jeep B-Ute

The Renegade might be the smallest Jeep in the lineup, but it still got its own Easter Safari concept this year called the B-Ute. The custom Renegade gets a vented hood, wider fenders, and a modified front end. To make it more of an off-roader, Jeep then added a 1.5-inch lift, a roof rack, rock rails, 17-inch wheels, and off-road tires. Sadly, you won’t find anything crazy under the hood. It’s just a 2.4-liter four-cylinder paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Jeep Wagoneer Roadtrip

Using a 1965 Jeep Wagoneer, this Roadtrip concept was built to bring back “nostalgic memories of going to Yellowstone National Park on a summer family vacation.” It’s been stretched by 5 inches, with the bodywork modified to compensate. Power comes from a 5.7-liter V-8 and a four-speed automatic, while custom fender flares made it possible to widen the track. With a reinforced frame, integrated rock rails, Dana 44 front and rear axles with locking differentials, and 17-inch wheels with 33-inch mud tires, the Wagoneer Roadtrip concept should be able to handle more than your basic family road trip.

Nacho Jeep

Painted Nacho yellow, the Nacho Jeep is basically a rolling Jeep Performance Parts catalog. There’s no telling how much it would cost to recreate the Nacho Jeep on your own, but since it was modified with OEM aftermarket parts, you could theoretically do it. Highlights include a Rubicon bumper, a Warn winch kit, tube doors, a 2-inch lift, 2.5-inch body shocks, and 37-inch tires on 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels. Jeep also added LED lights to the brush guard and A-pillars for better visibility on the trail, as well as a rear scouting light.

Jeep Jeepster

Viewed from the front, the Jeepster concept looks a lot more like a regular Wrangler, but its retro paint job doesn’t look any less cool. The Jeep Performance Parts catalog provided the hood, as well as the off-road lighting and the Rubicon steel bumper. The Jeepster also gets a 2-inch lift kit, 2.5-inch body shocks, 37-inch tires on 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels, a tubular roll cage, and a 38-inch in-cabin spare tire.

Jeep J-Wagon

Like the Nacho Jeep, the J-Wagon was built to show what’s possible with enough parts from the JPP catalog. Instead of turning the Wrangler Sahara into a hardcore off-roader, though, Jeep built the J-Wagon to look a little more civilized. It pairs a JPP hood with a snorkel, LED lights on the A-pillars, a blacked out grille, several Brass Monkey design details, and 17-inch wheels. Jeep then added a JPP roof rack, concept rock sliders, and a spare 35-inch tire. To keep the civilized look going inside, the J-wagon gets caramel-colored leather seats and more Brass Monkey trim.
