Overview of the Lincoln Aviator

Learn about the Lincoln Aviator

Summary

The Lincoln Aviator had a limited release from 2003 to 2005 but is now back with a vengeance with the all-new 2020 Lincoln Aviator Reserve and Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring. This luxury midsize SUV comes with all the bells and whistles you'd expect for its price point, plus a powerful engine and hybrid option. The older models deliver on finer interior finishes, like authentic wood trim and tons of legroom across three rows of leather seating. Spending a little more on the latest model gives you an intuitive infotainment system and modern safety features.

Safety

Drivers who are looking for updated safety technology can enjoy a healthy list of standard features on the new entry-level Lincoln Aviator. The Reserve trim automatically comes with blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert to warn you of traffic coming from all directions. Pre-collision assist and pedestrian detection are also standard on the Reserve trim, and an enhanced security package is available on the Grand Touring trim. Both trims come with a rearview camera. Older models feature well-rounded safety specs for their age, including dusk-sensing safety lights.

Interior

The all-new Lincoln Aviator sits up to seven passengers, or six if you opt for second-row captain chairs. Older models seat six. The Lincoln Aviator interior is plush and luxurious, though maybe not as opulent as others in its class. Even the base trim of the new model includes premium-quality cabin materials and comfort-driven features, such as quad-zone climate control and a heated steering wheel. The older releases exude luxury with a leather and wood steering wheel and standard leather seats.

Technology

The brand-new release of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives drivers an intuitive infotainment system on a 10-inch touchscreen. Other tech features include:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Satellite radio
  • Wireless voice-activated
  • Navigation system
  • High-end audio system
  • 2 USB ports

Buyers looking to test drive the older generation of SUVs won't find an infotainment screen, but 2004 and 2005 models do offer an optional DVD entertainment system for the back rows. Other technology features on older models also include a CD player and AM/FM radio.

Space

The Lincoln Aviator is a big SUV. The trunk can hold plenty of cargo and with the second- and third-row seats stowed away, this SUV seconds as a substantial transport vehicle. Passengers of all sizes can fit comfortably in all three rows, though taller passengers might want to stick to the second row on long trips, as it offers more room than the rear. The front row seats are comfortable, but the seats may seem a little narrow to some passengers. For city commuting, the Lincoln Aviator provides a pleasant ride for all.

Comfort

There's enough power under the hood to help drivers navigate any road situation. For an SUV its size, the Lincoln Aviator handles the road smoothly and even offers drivers an added suspension package to make the trip that much cushier. Turning corners and driving through slippery conditions is not a problem, but if you're worried about handling and control, all-wheel drive (AWD) is an available option for both new trims. Older generation Lincoln Aviators offer superior handling for a vehicle in its class.
