Serena Williams Named Lincoln Navigator Brand Ambassador

Lincoln taps Serena Williams as the newest face for Navigator and to star in an upcoming TV commercial.

Serena Williams for Lincoln Move over Matthew McConaughey. Lincoln has another face, and more specifically, it's for the new Navigator. Ford's luxury marque launched a new online social media brand campaign with tennis champion Serena Williams. The announcement doesn't claim Williams will oust McConaughey, but she will be a new face for various online and social media content. The brand said Serena Williams exemplifies many traits the SUV and Navigator customers cater to, specifically, balancing multiple portions of work, family life, and recreation.

Where drama and intrigue fill McConaughey ads, Williams' commercial is brighter and bubbly. She also details her first luxury vehicle purchase, a white Lincoln Navigator she named "Ginger." The 2018 Navigator is off to a roaring start since its debut. Ford announced last week that it will boost Navigator production with a new $25 million investment at its Kentucky Truck Plant. In the automaker's announcement, it said Navigators spend only seven days on dealers' lots. The majority of conquest sales have come from Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover—notably, not Cadillac, which sells the Navigator's most direct competitor, the Escalade. The new content will reach Lincoln social channels and Williams' own social media.
