Recently, 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. Lincoln later confirmed this news and officially revealed the 2022 Aviator Jet Package, which retains many of the same blacked-out elements of the discontinued Monochromatic Package. Thus, we thought it would be prudent to compare and contrast these very similar packages.

Both the 2021 Aviator Monochromatic Package and 2022 Aviator Jet Package include 22-inch black aluminum wheels, body-color front and rear fascias, body-color door cladding, and body-color wheel lip moldings. The Monochromatic Package also comes with a body-color grille insert with a chrome surround and Monochromatic badging, which the Jet Package does not include.
On the flip side, the Jet Package also contains a host of features that aren’t present in the Monochromatic Package, including black rear badging, a black grille insert, black mirror skull caps, black front and rear door spears, black glass surrounds, and black roof rails. Both of these packages were/are available in conjunction with Reserve trim.
In terms of exterior colors, the Monochromatic Package is available in Pristine White, Infinite Black, and Asher Gray, while the Jet Package can be paired with Infinite Black, Silver Radiance, Burgundy Velvet, and Pristine White.
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.
