2022 Lincoln Aviator Jet Package Officially Blacks Out The Luxury SUV

Earlier this week, Ford Authority reported that the 2022 Lincoln Aviator Jet Package would be replacing the Monochromatic Package, which was just introduced for that specific model for the 2021 model year. Now, Lincoln has confirmed this news and officially revealed the 2022 Lincoln Aviator Jet Package, which retains many of the same blacked-out elements of the discontinued Monochromatic 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 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 will be available in conjunction with four exterior color options including Pristine White, Infinite Black, Silver Radiance, and Burgundy Velvet when it launches in early 2022.

“The new Jet Package offers a clean, dramatic look that accentuates the presence of Aviator on the road,” said Earl Lucas, Lincoln’s exterior chief designer. “The black accents emphasize the strong lines and sleek look of the SUV’s exterior design.”

In addition to the new Jet Package, the 2022 Lincoln Aviator will lose a significant 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.

    Boring following instead of leading, Not 1 new or improved model

    It’s called brand identity. There’s a reason all the Lincoln SUVs look similar; so people can recognize them as Lincoln SUVs. Every brand does it. The German brands you love do it.

    So sick of the all black schemes. Wrapped the roof and powder coated the wheels on my blacked-out Explorer ST so it didn’t look like a hearse.

  4. Nauticalone

    Looks great, especially the all black!

  5. NCEcoBoost

    Looks MUCH better with the chrome. Enough of all the black on vehicles! Bad case of monkey see, monkey do.

    It’ll be interesting to see what the next design trend will be. Hopefully it won’t trigger the light-headed reactionaries the way this one has.

    All the hate in the comments against the black vs chrome makes no sense to me. That Infinite Black one looks absolutely awesome.

    I love it! More sport look!
