As Ford Authority reported back in July of 2020, the 2021 Lincoln Aviator joined the Lincoln Corsair, Lincoln Nautilus, and Lincoln Navigator as models from the luxury brand that offered the Monochromatic Package. However, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the 2022 Lincoln Aviator Reserve has dropped the Monochromatic Package in favor of the new Jet Package, which retains many of the same blacked-out elements of the discontinued package.
The 2021 Lincoln Aviator Reserve with the Monochromatic Package came equipped with 22-inch black aluminum wheels, a body-color grille with a chrome surround, body-color lower front front and rear fascias, body-color mirror skull caps, body-color door cladding, and body-color wheel lip mountings, as well as monochromatic badging.
Meanwhile, the 2022 Lincoln Aviator with the Jet Package will add 22-inch black aluminum wheels and a variety of black exterior elements including the front grille insert, fender and door badges, front and rear door spears, plinth and surround, mirror skull caps, roof rails, and glass surrounds. Additional elements include body-color lower front and rear fascias, wheel lips, and door cladding. The new 2022 Aviator Jet Package will be optional on Reserve 101A models and is a late availability option.
In addition to the new Jet Package, the 2022 Lincoln Aviator will lose a large portion of the 2021 model’s max towing capability, going from 6,700 pounds when equipped with the Class IV Trailer Tow Package down to 5,600 pounds, as Ford Authority reported last week. Otherwise, the Aviator – which was redesigned for the 2020 model year, along with its Ford CD6 Platform-mate, the Ford Explorer, will carry over largely unchanged for the 2022 model year.
