The designing of the next flagship is quite similar to the X5 but, with a touch of aggressiveness. Considering the width-to-height ratio is quite similar to the Range Rovers and not much like X6. At the front, kidney grilles are finished in bright silver and have been joined in the middle, the same pattern is seen on the Lincoln Navigator.
