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.
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.
