The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is all you could want in a three-row luxury crossover. The elegant exterior features a commanding design with a signature grille, sleek lines, and large tires, complementing the feeling of warmth, modernity, and capability when driving the Aviator.
The interior is sumptuously appointed, with soft leather and judicious use of bright and matte chrome. The Sandstone interior is scrumptious; just ban ballpoint pens.
The 3.6L engine mated to a 10-speed transmission shifts smoothly and acceleration is excellent for such a big vehicle. The “Air Glide” suspension provides a fully adjustable ride, including lowering the vehicle for easier ingress and adapting to specific drive modes. Keep the Aviator in “Excite” mode for an engaging ride.
Lincoln Co-Pilot360 is standard, with a full suite of driver assistance technology available. Phone As A Key replaces a standard key through an app, allowing for locking, unlocking and starting the Aviator, scratching off one item of the usual frantic search for key, wallet, phone.
The Aviator has a host of competitors (Buick Enclave, Audi Q7, Acura MDX) so compare vehicles AND ownership experiences. Investigate The Lincoln Way and Black Label services, which enhance an already excellent luxury vehicle.
