Lincoln's new luxury SUV/

Lincoln Aviator

The all-new 2020 Lincoln Aviator touched down at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show with advanced technologies that let the luxury SUV kneel to greet you, scan the road ahead for uneven pavement, and allow you to drive away using your smartphone instead of a key.

The three-row, midsize premium utility elevates Lincoln's design vision while delivering on Quiet Flight, a key brand concept that supports tenets of beauty, gliding, human and a crafted sanctuary. Lincoln Aviator will be available globally, entering the highest volume segment in the U.S., the midsize luxury market, and the third-highest volume segment in China.

Also debuting is the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring, named for its gliding power and effortless performance. This marks the first time the company has combined a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and advanced electrified hybrid technology capable of delivering smooth performance and instantaneous torque.

"Aviator represents the very best of our brand DNA and signals the direction for Lincoln vehicles going forward," says Joy Falotico, president, The Lincoln Motor Company. "It offers elegance, effortless performance and unparalleled comfort - a true representation of Lincoln's vision for the future."

Power, capability and choice

Lincoln Aviator offers the kind of capability premium clients require in a three-row SUV, with available all-wheel drive and a choice of gas or hybrid powertrain. The standard twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, paired with a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission, is expected to deliver an impressive 400 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque for effortless acceleration.

With the hybrid option, Aviator Grand Touring's twin-turbocharged engine and advanced electrified technology is targeted to deliver even greater levels of performance. Projected to produce 450 horsepower and a massive 600 lb.-ft. of torque, the all-new Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring is expected to deliver greater performance than many three-row, midsize luxury hybrid SUVs.

"This is our most advanced hybrid technology," says John Davis, chief program engineer, The Lincoln Motor Company. "Together with the standard twin-turbocharged gas engine and advanced electrified Grand Touring technology, Aviator is set to define effortless performance - performance that only Lincoln can deliver."

Lincoln Drive Modes allow clients to further customize their drive experience, while a 12.3-inch standard configurable LCD instrument cluster confirms their choices with beautiful, easy-to-read dynamic graphics and prompts. In addition to Lincoln's five signature settings - Normal, Conserve, Excite, Slippery and Deep Conditions - two new modes are engineered specifically for Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring. These modes, Pure EV and Preserve EV, allow clients to choose when and how to best use their electric energy, while an enhanced Excite mode helps maximize performance.

Actually The 2020 Lincoln Aviator Makes Almost 500 HP For Some Reason

When the new 2020 Lincoln Aviator hybrid was introduced last year, it was promised to have an estimated 450 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. It turns out Lincoln was apparently way underselling it then, because the official numbers are now up to a ridiculous 494 HP and 630 lb-ft of torque, exactly what you want in your luxury crossover.

CarBuzz and AutoGuide are both reporting that a spec sheet handed out to journalists at a Lincoln media event included the updated power figures. The base 3.0-liter V6 powered Aviator still makes 400 hp but now makes up to 415 lb-ft of torque, a boost of 15 lb-ft over the initial claims last year.

But the more impressive jump in power comes with the hybrid model, which jumped 44 HP from an initial estimated 450, now knocking on the door of the 500 hp club. In a mid-size Lincoln crossover. Torque is up 30 lb-ft from the initial 600 lb-ft estimate, as well. It’s a quick people-mover, alright.

Lincoln Aviator Black Label 2019 review

Should I buy one?

Lincoln exists outside the US, but there are no plans to bring the brand to Europe. Indeed, right-hand drive markets are even denied the Explorer it shares its mechanical package with. In the Aviator's home market, its biggest problem is definitely the one with the dollar sign in front of it.

The basic rear-driven model starts at $52,195 (currently £40,520) the AWD Black Label is $81,790 (£63,490) and the PHEV Black Label is $88,895 (£69,000). The Dynamic Handling Package adds $3000 (£2330). Those are prices that put it into direct contention with plusher versions of the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, Range Rover Sport and even Porsche Cayenne. Sure, the Lincoln is nice, but it's not that nice.
