Check Out The 2020 Lincoln Aviator From Every Angle In Huge Photo Gallery

Almost 9 months after its official premiere at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, Lincoln has dropped a new detailed image gallery of the Aviator.

A rival to the likes of the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, Audi Q7, Volvo XC90 and others, Lincoln’s proposal in the competitive luxury mid-size SUV segment comes with a stylish and elegant design and a high end interior that’s jammed with the company’s latest technology items.

Powering the standard Aviator is a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 gasoline engine that produces 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft (563 Nm) of torque. It’s hooked up to a new 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission driving either the rear wheels or an optional all-wheel drive system.

Should you want the latest and greatest for your flagship Lincoln SUV, then you’ll have to go for the hybrid option, which combines the 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 with an electric motor and a 13.6 kWh battery pack in the Grand Touring. The powertrain has a total output of 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet (854 Nm) of torque.

Aside from the standard model’s Normal, Conserve, Excite, Slippery and Deep Conditions driving modes, the Aviator Grand Touring adds two extra functions named Preserve EV, which recharges and saves battery power for a later usage, and Pure EV, for a full zero-emission experience.

The Aviator has the standard Lincoln Co-Pilot360 bundle of safety gear that includes Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane-Keeping System, Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert, reversing camera and auto high beams.

The Co-Pilot360 Plus is an option that adds Evasive Steering Assist, Reverse Brake Assist, Adaptive Dynamic Bending Lighting, Speed-Dependent Lighting, Active Park Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Traffic Jam Assist.

Additionally, customers have other equipment available, such as the Adaptive Suspension, Adaptive Suspension with Road Preview or Air Glide Suspension, Phone As A Key, Revel Ultima 3D Audio System, Perfect Position seats with Active Motion and so on.

Yours from a little over $52,000

Pricing starts at $52,195 including a $1,095 destination fee for the base, rear-wheel drive version, or $54,695 if you need all-wheel drive, but can go all the way up to $91,145 should you select the flagship Black Label edition with the plug-in hybrid powertrain and tick the two only available options.

    after seeing this whoever gave the go ahead for the XT-6 SHOULD BE FIRED along with Lloyd Reuss and Mary bloody Barra

    • WalthamDan

      Agree, although we should probably wait and see how well Ford assembles this rig and how many more recalls it may suffer.

    • TheBelltower

      Agreed. Also, Steve Carlisle should get the boot before the paint in his office has time too dry. Three years ago, if I had to bet on either Cadillac or Lincoln, I would have said Cadillac without a moment of hesitation. Their cars were lightyears ahead of Lincoln… some were even world class, arguably. Today, Cadillac is the one who is clearly phoning it in. The XT6 is going to be a nice rental vehicle.

    …10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission driving either the rear wheels or an optional all-wheel drive system.

    Such a generic description…

    The optional all-wheel drive system adds a one-speed single range transfer case with multi-disc lockup clutchpack. It’s bolted to the back of the 10-speed 10R-Series automatic transmission and “drops” on the passenger side. It’s also heavy-duty, designed to put up with high torque output.

  • Dennis Scipio

    I was totally wrong about this crossover, it really is a beautiful, and great looking vehicle. Sometimes, smooth lines does make a good design. I didn’t have a problem with the looks of the Navigator, or the Corsair’s front grille, and the Aviator’s front end is starting to grow on me.

  • Nordschleife

    May this be the “it vehicle” of the year. LOL I really really do like this vehicle. I can’t lie though, it only really resonates with me in it Black Label guise. Lower trims are not all that appealing to me. I do want this to succeed and I am sure it will.

  • JTL2017

    I like this suv more than I thought.

    • Stigasawuswrecks

      My wife can’t wait to get hers. I’m so looking forward to take a nice road trip in it. This thing looks so dope on the inside and out.

  • Hot Twink

    Not hardly, but it’s nice to know how it differs from other all-wheel drive systems.

  • Bash

    Its all great and beautiful, but no matter how huge the gallery is, it remains incomplete unless it contains an interior pics as well. https://media0.giphy.com/media/xT9IgfNPRprdidd3Bm/giphy.gif

    • William rowe

      right, its like whats the point

    • Dennis Scipio

      you think this is “Beautiful”???

      • Bash

        Yes. To each have his own.

        • Dennis Scipio

          Okay, fine.

  • A ?? THAT WILL RULE OVER YOU

    And then people would have a negative outcome with Hyundai because it’s no where “prestigious” as Lincoln. You people just like to have something to debate about, i swear.

  • A ?? THAT WILL RULE OVER YOU

    Why am do i only see the XT6 use uber cars? I hadn’t see this Aviator on the road yet, but people talk about it’s a gorgeous SUV and no one is purchasing this. You people are a joke.

    • Astonman

      It hasn’t come out yet.

      • James Denz

        Easy answer. No one’s bought one yet because they’re not on sale yet.

    • rodriguez256

      Lol congrats, you played yourself.

      • A ?? THAT WILL RULE OVER YOU

        says the moron

        • rodriguez256

          Damn you’re too good with those comebacks. I really thought it was too simple and sorry but kind of lame but after reading it again and again I truly believe you are one of the greats. You will be remembered.

          • A ?? THAT WILL RULE OVER YOU

            You need to fix your grammar kid. I stopped reading after the second word “again”.

    • iggination

      Pretty hard to purchase a car that hasn’t come out yet.

  • Darnell Robeson

    Absolutely stunning inside & out

  • NO INTERIOR PHOTOS?

  • mattw177

    What about the interior!?

  • Ben

    Something I REALLY hope Lincoln hasn’t given up on is the machine turned metal finish. When I saw it in the concept, I was blown away. Luxury car materials are always a progressing design point. We’ve graduated from chrome and polished walnut veneer to satin metals and open pore woods. Lincoln using machine turned metal is so unique and also a great play into the name “Aviator” since it was used in airplanes.

    • Craig

      A great idea Ben.

    • James Denz

      Not unique though. Pontiac Trans Ams from the 1970s and GTOs from their start in 1964 had engine turned dashes. These were large swathes of the material as well.

      • Ben

        True, but that was over 50 years ago…I don’t think people would be disappointed if they brought back something so unique.

  • Nick099

    Nice job.
    Unfortunately it looks like Lincoln has managed to copy Range Rover’s latest designs.
    Velar anyone?

    • Six_Tymes

      spot on

  • Hot Twink

    If you like things dumbed down for you then that speaks a lot towards what kind of person you are.

    Knowing if the vehicle has a transfer case or a PTO and RDM is good to know since transfer cases provide a great deal more capability. They can handle more torque and there is no worries about it overheating when stressed or under load.

    Some PTO and RDM based systems (which are used with transverse powertrains) will easily overheat and revert to front-wheel drive. And no, you don’t have to be off-road for that to happen.

    I’m an engineer, specializing in automotive drivetrain solutions. Transfer case design is a forte. I also advocate for science and engineering, as well as promoting learning in and outside of the classroom.

    When knowledge is no longer wanted, and people prefer things to be dumbed down, society itself becomes dumbed down.

  • Hot Twink

    You are the one who replied to my initial comment with nothing constructive to add.

    Some people do like to know the inner workings of their vehicles, however small a percentage they may be. Sorry if you or anyone else have a problem with that.
