After the last-year launch, we are pretty sure that the second production year won’t bring any particular novelty. Simply, this is a brand-new model under Lincoln’s badge, which represents the brand in the segment of mid-size crossover. It came last year and it rides on the company’s new CD6 platform, so it would be hard to expect any notable modifications. On the other side, it’s always possible to see 2021 Lincoln Aviator with things like new color options and a couple of new standard features. Other than that, things will remain untouched.
That means you may count on a spacious and comfortable crossover, which offers a cushioned ride, excellent infotainment system and lots of practicality. Furthermore, it offers two powertrain options, both characterized by plenty of power. Add to this a stylish design, several trim levels in the offer and it’s not hard to make a conclusion that the 2021 Lincoln Aviator will be an excellent choice for those who are looking for spacious, but also luxurious crossover.
2021 Lincoln Aviator Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, we certainly won’t see any particular change for the next year. The Aviator came as a brand-new model last year and it definitely doesn’t need any particular update. It rides on the company’s new CD6 platform and shares a lot of mechanics with the new Explorer. The thing we like about this model is that it doesn’t tend to be too athletic, like some other premium crossover. It’s all about the cushioned ride, while suspension upgrades in higher trims make the comfort even more impressive.
When it comes to the styling, the 2021 Lincoln Aviator won’t bring any surprise. You may count on the same styling, which completely follows the brand’s latest design language, introduced with models like Navigator and Continental. Still, there is always a chance to see a new color option or some similar update.
As we already mentioned, this crossover is all about comfort, so the interior comes in the same manner as well. This means you may count on the hi-quality cabin and excellent sound insulation. The dashboard is designed in a pretty classical manner, with an elegant dashboard that comes in a combination with a large tablet-like touchscreen, which runs some of the best infotainment systems we have seen in the automotive industry. Also, the seats are massive and supportive, while a lot of power-adjusting options make finding a perfect seating position as easy as it can be.
Besides style and quality, this cabin offers a lot of practicality. One of the things we particularly like is the generous cargo area, which is among the biggest in the class. You may count on more than 18 cubic feet behind the third row, 42 behind the second and 77.7 cubic feet with all seats down. Those are pretty amazing ratings for the class.
As we already mentioned, there is always a chance to see a couple of novelties on the list of standard equipment. However, we don’t expect to see anything significant, so most of the things will remain unchanged. This means that base models will come standard with tech goodies like tri-zone automatic climate control, 10.1-inch touch screen, second-row climate touchscreen, four USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 10-speaker audio system, satellite radio etc. In higher trims, you can also get a panoramic sunroof, quad-zone automatic climate control, wireless device charging, Lincoln’s Phone As A Key, a 14-speaker Revel audio system, a 28-speaker Revel Ultima 3D audio system, HD Radio, navigation etc.
When it comes to safety features, the current model already shines and we really don’t expect to see any more notable change. The current model comes standard with a rearview camera, MyKey, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and driver drowsiness monitoring. Some of these features are part of the Lincoln Co-Pilot360 suite of technology. Additionally, you can also get a surround-view parking camera system, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, lane centering, evasive steering assist, parallel and perpendicular park assist, traffic sign recognition, and adaptive bending headlights and more.
2021 Lincoln Aviator Engines
We definitely don’t expect to see any change when it comes to 2021 Lincoln Aviator powertrain. Base models will carry on with the same 3.0-liter V6, which is good for about 400 horsepower. There is also a plug-in hybrid version, which comes based on the same engine and delivers an impressive output of 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque, as well as an all-electric range of 21 miles. Both versions come with a 10-speed automatic transmission and feature impressive driving dynamics.
2021 Lincoln Aviator Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2021 Lincoln Aviator will hit the market sometime late in the year. When it comes to the price, base models currently go around 51.000 dollars and we don’t expect to see bigger changes in the future.
