2021 Lincoln Aviator Gains New Asher Gray Color: First Look

The 2021 Lincoln Aviator adds three new colors to its roster: Flight Blue, Ocean Drive Blue, and Asher Gray. Here’s our first look at the Asher Gray option.

Assigned order code M7, Asher Gray is available on the 2021 Lincoln Aviator Standard (base), Reserve, and Grand Touring (plug-in hybrid) models, but is not available on the range-topping Black Label or Black Label Grand Touring trim levels.

On the models that it is available, Asher Gray is a no-cost option and can be paired with all interior color environments, including those featured in the Monochromatic Reserve I and Monochromatic Reserve II equipment groups.

Lincoln Aviator Trim Levels:

  • Base
  • Reserve
  • Grand Touring (PHEV)
  • Black Label
  • Black Label Grand Touring (PHEV)

Lincoln Aviator Interior Color Combinations:

  • Ebony
  • Sandstone
  • Slate Gray
  • Ebony Roast
  • Destination*
  • Chalet*
  • Flight*
  • * Black Label interior themes

As of this writing, the 2021 Lincoln Aviator is available at the retail level, as the Ford Chicago Assembly plant has been producing the three-row crossover since September 2020, albeit with moderate disruptions to its output as a result of the ongoing microchip shortage.

Shoppers interested in the Lincoln Aviator should check with their local dealer regarding pricing and availability of models clad in the Asher Gray color.

2021 Lincoln Aviator

Ford Authority has extensively covered the changes to the Lincoln Aviator for 2021, which include the adoption of a high-end cabin air filter, automatic heated and ventilated seating, the Auto Air Refresh feature, and the Monochromatic Reserve package. Additionally, the luxury crossover is set to take over livery duties for the Lincoln Continental, which FoMoCo’s luxury division discontinued last year.

The Lincoln Aviator rides on the rear-drive-based Ford CD6 platform shared with the 2021 Ford Explorer. Lincoln reintroduced the Aviator for the 2020 model year as an all-new addition to the lineup. The new Aviator represents the second-generation of the Aviator nameplate, where it slots in as Lincoln’s largest crossover utility vehicle (CUV), above the compact Corsair and midsize Nautilus. Only the Navigator full-size SUV is larger and also more expensive than the new Aviator.

    Yay, another gray. Has Ford/Lincoln lost all imagination and interest in colors? I saw a new Hyundai the other day, a brilliant, glowing copper color. A neighbor has a Caribbean blue newer Wrangler. Ford has… grays and silvers and black coming out of the ears. Come on, Ford/Lincoln, give us lots of exciting colors! Oh and don’t upcharge for it, that just makes you a dick.
