The 2020 Lincoln Aviator made its debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show last week, arriving with an available Grand Touring model that features a hybrid 3.0-liter V6 engine making 450 hp and an incredible 600 lb-ft of torque.
There’s more to enjoy about the 2020 Lincoln Aviator than just the powertrain, however. This big SUV looks rather handsome, in our opinion, and has an heir of classic American luxury about it that can be hard to find these days.
Let’s quickly break down a few of the key features of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator:
- Available Grand Touring model with hybrid 3.0-liter V6 making 450 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque
- Standard 3.0-liter V6 making 400 hp and 400 lb-ft
- Ten speed automatic transmission
- Available self-adaptive air suspension
- Standard rear-wheel drive, AWD optional
- Lincoln Phone as Key system
- Standard Lincoln’s Co-Pilot360 active safety suite
- Lincoln drive mode select system with up to seven modes
The interior also appears to be a rather nice place to sit. Lincoln wasn’t letting us near its auto show prototype to take interior shots, but as the debut gallery shows, the production model is true to the concept. Lincoln’s 30-way power adjustable seats are present up front, along with a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display and a center touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. An onboard wi-fi hotspot is standard as well, allowing passengers to connect their phones, computers, laptops or other devices to the internet while they are on the go.
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is an important vehicle for Ford as it looks to gain sales momentum in China and take advantage of American consumers’ tastes for SUVs and crossovers. The automaker has so far enjoyed strong sales of the new Navigator and is selling a lot of well-optioned Black Label versions of the SUV, so if all goes to plan, the 600 lb-ft Aviator Grand Touring will be flying off lots by calendar year 2019.
