Earlier this week, we reported that the 2021 Lincoln Aviator would come equipped with a high-end combi interior air filter, which will become standard on all trim levels. Now, Ford Authority has also learned that the 2021 Lincoln Aviator will add automatic heated and ventilated seats, for both the driver and front passenger.
The 2020 Aviator (pictured) had heated and ventilated seats, but did not come with the automatic feature. The new heated and ventilated seats are controlled automatically as part of the vehicle‘s auto climate system. Other noteworthy features that the Aviator offers include heated and ventilated second row outboard seats, plus a heated steering wheel.
As we reported last month, order banks for the 2020 Lincoln Aviator closed back on April 30th, 2020, and the last day to make changes to those orders was July 23rd, 2020. The last day of 2020 production is September 20th, 2020. Meanwhile, 2021 Lincoln Aviator order banks open on July 13th, 2020. The first day of 2021 production is September 21st, 2020.
The Lincoln Aviator returned after a fifteen-year hiatus for the 2020 model year as an all-new mid-size plus / full-size three-row luxury crossover that slots between the Lincoln Nautilus and the Lincoln Navigator within the automaker’s lineup.
The Aviator comes in five different trim levels – Standard, Reserve, Grand Touring, Black Label, and Black Label Grand Touring. Two versions of Ford’s 3.0L EcoBoost V6 are available – one that produces 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, and a hybrid version for the Aviator Grand Touring that produces 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. Both are equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The Aviator continues to deliver strong incremental share growth for the Lincoln brand, representing a 10 percent retail share of the large premium SUV segment. Lincoln Aviator sales totaled 4,016 units in Q2 2020, and Lincoln has sold 9,682 units year-to-date.
