The Guts On The 2020 Lincoln Aviator: Full Review
No guts, no glory, they say. This statement can never be more accurate than with the all-new Lincoln Aviator. The new Aviator is a luxury midsize SUV with appealing styling, sophisticated interior, and lively powertrain. The glorious 2020 Aviator seals the Lincoln bounce back to the top American luxury automobiles. Everything about this American SUV is designed to evoke pride from the rider. Besides its well-designed cabin with ample cargo space, a ride with this handsome SUV promises to afford exhilarating ride quality, all thanks to its classic driving dynamics.
Engine And Performance
Under the hood of the 2020 Aviator, lies an exciting option of powertrains. Its base powertrain is a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that confidently gives out 400 horsepower. The much refined V6 engine in this Aviator model ranks amongst the most powerful engines in the midsize luxury SUV class. The acceleration is enthralling, courtesy of the 10-speed automatic transmission that is connected to the base engine.
To take the game higher, the Aviator also offers a plug-in-hybrid powertrain. This plug-in-hybrid powertrain is available in the Grand Touring models. Utilizing the twin-turbo V6 with a 10-speed transmission, this model also adds a 100-hp electric motor, creating a more formidable power. The combo generates a 494 horsepower and an incredible 630 pound-feet of torque.
The new Aviator has a maximum towing rate of 6,700 pounds, which is modest for its class. Cruising with this ride provides one of the most serene ride quality, as it doesn’t feel intimidated by curvy roads or even harsher terrains.
Down to gas mileage, the Aviator offers a modest fuel economy. The all-wheel-drive variant gets an EPA estimated rating of 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, while the rear-wheel-drive bags a return rating of 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. This number, no doubt, falls slightly below the “big name” brands in its class. The plug-in hybrid Aviator Grand Touring with 21 miles all-electric range has a combined rating of 23 mpg.
Interior Quality And Cargo Space
When you step inside the Aviator, you’ll be welcomed into a stylishly decorated cabin, all patches of first-rate materials.

Besides its high-end infotainment system, the new Lincoln midsize luxury SUV is engineered with quad-zone automatic climate control, panoramic sunroof, 14-speaker Revel audio system, 28-speaker Revel Ultima 3D audio system, and other fascinating tech features. Just get a Lincoln Aviator lease from us and enjoy this awesome user-friendly infotainment system that adds to the thrills of riding the SUV.
Many close competitors are still borrowing a leaf from the Aviator’s comfy and spacious cabin. This new model can seat between six to seven people, depending… The first two rows are exquisitely comfy and supportive, with ample head and legroom. The third row is not bad but can get more discomforting for tall adult passengers in longer rides.
Lincoln has never compromised on safety for once. The Aviator performed so well in all safety tests. Lincoln’s Co-Pilot360 system of driver-assistance technologies and the optional Co-Pilot360 Plus is fully stacked with all novel safety tech features.
