After a redesign for the 2020 model year, the Lincoln Aviator has soldiered on with minor changes ever since, though bigger things – like a refresh, another redesign, and an all-electric variant are on the horizon. Regardless, the 2023 Lincoln Aviator carries on into the new model year with a few more changes for the luxurious crossover, including the addition of the Black Label Special Edition Luxe Package, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority.
The 2023 Black Label Special Edition Luxe Package (90R) is available exclusively on Black Label (800A) models, as well as in conjunction with Silver Radiance, Diamond Red, and Pristine White exterior colors only. It includes a host of exterior enhancements such as black 22-inch aluminum, wheels, body-color lower front and rear fascias, door cladding, and wheel lips, along with a black-painted roof. The package also adds a host of black exterior elements including the front grille insert, plinth, and surround, mirror skull caps, fender and door badges, front and rear door spears, glass surrounds, and roof rails.
In addition to this package, the 2023 Lincoln Aviator has also gained a new exterior color dubbed Diamond Red Metallic while deleting Bronze Smoke Metallic and Burgundy Velvet Metallic, a head-up display removal option, and may also ditch subwoofer and amplifier options, depending on potential supply chain issues. The luxurious crossover received modest price increases on certain trims for 2023, to boot.
The Aviator is expected to undergo a refresh for the 2024 model year, as Ford Authority reported back in June, while an all-electric model will reportedly launch in 2025. The Aviator EV is expected to be built alongside the all-electric Ford Explorer at the Oakville Assembly plant, replacing production of both the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus there.
