The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is here and it is a decadent luxury that will make a simple trip to the grocery feel like a grand experience. That’s not by accident; it’s something Lincoln is happy to tell us about.
Unveiled during the LA Auto Show, the 2020 Lincoln Aviator starts the grand experience by literally kneeling to greet you as you enter the car. The suspension will automatically lower when you get in, leading to a more comfortable entry as well as a luxurious one at that.
What’s under the hood will only get you even more excited to drive it. It’s available in two trims, the first being a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with a 10-speed SelectShift transmission that will deliver 400 horsepower and 400-pound feet of torque.
However, if you want something a little more powerful and more eco-friendly, the all-new Aviator Grand Touring trim combines a twin-turbocharged engine with hybrid technology that produces 450 horsepower and 600-pound feet of torque. Both powertrains are available with all-wheel drive and different driving modes.
While you’re in the driver’s seat, a 12.3-inch configurable LCD instrument cluster will greet you with the option to add the most important information front and center.
Other future-forward features are Phone as a Key feature that lets you drive using your phone instead of a key; sensors that “see” the road for potholes and uneven pavement; and Traffic Jam Assist that navigates through agonizing traffic using the adaptive cruise control, lane centering and traffic sign recognition.
Lincoln did not announce pricing or availability for the 2020 Aviator, though it should start at the $70,000 barrier past models have come in at.
