Discover the all-new 2020 Lincoln Aviator
The Lincoln Aviator name might be familiar to you, but the 2020 Lincoln Aviator is all-new in every sense of the word apart from the name. The last Lincoln Aviator went out of production in 2006, but the all-new model was unveiled at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Let's take a closer look at what to expect from this all-new luxury SUV.
What is the 2020 Lincoln Aviator?
This all-new 2020 Lincoln Aviator is a three-row, midsize, luxury SUV crossover, and it sits in the Lincoln range above the Nautilus crossover, but below the full-size Navigator SUV. The Lincoln Navigator seats up to seven people in considerable luxury, and a big feature of this new model will be the availability of a hybrid powertrain.
When we look at some of the vehicles the all-new Lincoln Aviator will compete against, there's no getting away from the fact the competition is fierce. The first thing the Lincoln Aviator has to do to make a mark in the midsize luxury SUV segment is to look the part, and it certainly checks that particular box.
Although this is a completely new model based on a new architecture, it still retains the unmistakable look of the Lincoln brand. The front fascia leaves onlookers in no doubt about the new models branding, but it still manages to take that recognizable look in a more contemporary direction without copying others.
A vehicle like this has to be imposing, serious and oozing quality and presence, and that is exactly the look the designers have delivered here. It does look long rather than tall, but that will pay-off in terms of interior space to give passengers the kind of luxury experience they expect from a vehicle of this stature.
The standard powerplant is a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V-6 that develops 400 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft. of torque, which will send that impressive power to the rear or all four wheels through a standard 10-speed automatic transmission. The alternative powerplant will be a plug-in hybrid, and it will only be available in the new Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring trim level. This unit will see the power increase to an impressive 450 horsepower, but the big uplift is with the torque, which goes up to a massive 600 lb.-ft.
Here in Canada to begin with at least, there are just two versions of these new Lincoln SUVs to choose from, which are the Reserve and the Grand Touring. The Reserve comes standard with the 3.0-litre twin-turbo V-6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission, but the Grand Touring is only available with that impressive plug-in hybrid powertrain.
Features and equipment
It would probably be quicker and easier to list what the 2020 Lincoln Aviator doesn’t come with standard. The Reserve includes 20-inch Ultra Bright Machined Magnetic Paint wheels, a 28-speaker Revel Ultima 3D audio system, 360-degree camera system, quad-zone climate control, a hands-free liftgate, and an awful lot more.
