It is found in yachts, fine furniture, premium acoustic guitars and now you’ll see it in the new 2015 Lincoln Navigator. Lincoln is the first automobile manufacturer to use ziricote wood, an exotic hardwood found in South America, southern Europe and northern Africa.
The ziricote wood accents the Lincoln Navigator’s door panels, instrument panel, center console and steering wheel. Other than a thin protective coat, no stains or dyes are used, allowing the striking color and grain to shine through.
The ziricote wood is a key element of the new Reserve Package Lincoln is offering on the next Navigator. Other options will include:
- Updated cabin that extends ultra-luxurious leather to all three rows of seats, armrests, center console and transmission shifter
- Hand-wrapped leather instrument panel with contrast stitching and leather glove box door
- 22-inch polished aluminum wheels
- Available chrome-accented running boards
Production of the 2015 Navigator is scheduled to begin late this summer at Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville with vehicles arriving in Lincoln showrooms in early fall. Visit Randall Reed’s Planet Lincoln (serving Houston, The Woodlands, Spring, Aldine and Conroe) at www.PlanetLincoln.com.
