Sometimes surprises in the automotive world aren’t a good thing. Suprise, the vehicle costs more, or surprise, the vehicle has less power, we don’t want to hear. Lincoln’s latest surprise is a very good thing, and this surprise is one all fans of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Hybrid will be glad to hear.

When Lincoln first started to talk up the hybrid Aviator, it promised 450 horsepower combined from its hybrid powertrain. Lincoln has now confirmed that the combined output for the 2020 Lincoln Aviator hybrid will be 494 horsepower making it one of the most powerful vehicles in the segment. Ford had stated in the past that one major reason that buyers cited in its research for not buying a hybrid or EV was the fear of giving up power.
