In the realm of performance enhancements, there exists a plethora of companies incessantly striving to outdo the standards set by manufacturers. Hennessey Performance stands out as one of the most audacious exemplars in augmenting the power output of machines that arguably demand more. The most recent endeavor from this brand, however, has left many perplexed.

The 2019 Lincoln Navigator epitomizes the essence of a luxurious family vehicle; a veritable mobile palace where supple leathers, natural woods, and cutting-edge cabin technology coalesce harmoniously to delight every family member. Hennessey appears convinced that the 450 horsepower generated by its standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine falls short of the mark, leading them to eke out an additional 150 horsepower from the twin-turbocharged Ford engine. An embedded video shared on YouTube vividly showcases the notable difference on the drag strip.

The blacked-out Navigator boasts Hennessey Performance’s HP600 package, which, as per the tuner’s specifications, churns out 600 horsepower at 6,000 rpm, facilitating a 0-60 mph sprint in 4.8 seconds and a quarter-mile run in 12.9 seconds at 107 mph. No information regarding torque and pricing details has been disclosed.

The HP600 package encompasses a range of enhancements, including:

  • Enhanced Air Induction System
  • Turbocharger Wastegate Adjustment
  • Upgraded Front-Mounted Intercooler
  • Improved Intercooler Piping
  • Performance Exhaust System (Catback)
  • Engine Software Upgrade
  • Complete Installation Service
  • Chassis Dynamometer Calibration & Testing
  • Road Testing Covering Up to 200 Miles
  • Sequentially Numbered Interior & Engine Bay Plaques
  • 3-Year / 36,000-Mile Limited Warranty
  • 22-inch Monoblock Wheels with Performance Tires (optional)
  • Brembo Front and Rear Brake System (optional)
  • Suspension Lowering Kit (optional)

Expectedly, the upgraded Navigator emerges victorious in the race, albeit by a modest margin—roughly two car lengths at most. While the exact cost of the modification remains undisclosed, one can’t help but ponder whether narrowing such a marginal gap warrants the presumably substantial investment?
