2024 Lincoln Aviator Refresh Now Undergoing Testing

The current-gen Lincoln Aviator debuted for the 2020 model year alongside its platform-mate, the Ford Explorer, and has received a few updates in the years since. However, bigger things are on the horizon – including the launch of an all-electric version of the luxurious crossover – as well as a forthcoming refresh for the 2024 model year, as Ford Authority reported back in June. Now, Ford Authority has exclusively learned that FoMoCo is already testing the refreshed model, and we have some details on the 2024 Lincoln Aviator refresh as well.

As is typical with The Blue Oval, the 2024 Lincoln Aviator refresh will bring about a variety of minor changes designed to keep the model relevant and competitive in its segment, including some updates for the front and rear fascias, as well as a few small changes for the interior. Additionally, some new wheel designs will be available when the crossover debuts, too.

As Ford Authority previously reported, the Oakville Assembly plant in Canada – which currently produces the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus for North America – will stop building both the mainstream crossover and its luxurious counterpart after the 2023 model year. That facility will then be retooled for the production of all-electric versions of the Explorer and Aviator, which will be the only two vehicles produced at Oakville and are expected to debut in 2025.

In the meantime, the 2023 Aviator introduced a variety of changes to the crossover for the new model year, including the addition of the Black Label Special Edition Luxe Package and a new exterior color dubbed Diamond Red Metallic, while simultaneously deleting Bronze Smoke Metallic and Burgundy Velvet Metallic from its color palette. FoMoCo also introduced a head-up display removal option and may  ditch the Aviator’s subwoofer and amplifier options, depending on potential supply chain issues. The luxurious crossover received modest price increases on certain trims for 2023, to boot.

We’ll have more on the 2024 Lincoln Aviator refresh soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Lincoln news, Lincoln Aviator news, and continuous Ford news coverage.

      They are listening, to Biden and Mayor Pete, not to their customers.

    My biggest compliant for new Ford vehicles is the hard ride on choppy/ bumpy roads. Not all customers want a stiff hard riding racing style suspension. Older customers loved the smooth boulevard ride of the Lincoln Towncar…especially when traveling long all day vacation type trips in northern states where roads are filled with patches.

      Maybe a TS (Touring Suspension) package?

    Gasoline vehicles are best. The hybrids show some promise. This emphasis on all electric is a fraud on the taxpayer!

    Looks like some readers are making this a personal victimization thing.
    Car companies adapt to consumer demands—-and not just for the current car-buying generation.
    If you don’t want to go along with it, then buy a different brand.
    But PLEASE: stop whining.
    Change what you can, accept what you can’t, and know the difference.

    I’m sorry, they have some decent designs but I’m just fed up of Ford allowing these greedy dealers to rip off their patrons with ridiculous mark-ups. Even after working up an accepted build sheet and purchase price they’ll still try to bend you over to pick your pocket. I’m done with Furd.

      Report the offending dealer to Ford.

      Name and shame the dealer(s) on social media.

      If you must buy low, find a better dealer.

      And if you can hang on a year or so, wait for Ford’s intro of no haggle pricing.

    How about an LSC line of performance Lincolns please.

      Lincoln also needs vehicles geared to a younger generation to bring them into the brand and grow through the levels. Ford doesn’t get it. “Let’s give people another mustang or Bronco and leave Lincoln a meaningless boutique vehicle because we don’t want to offer anything that will take sales away from Ford.”

        That doesn’t make any sense.

        If it were as you suggest, then the stairstep up to Lincoln would be pointless. At the same time, I don’t think Ford would (single brand dealers would tho) care about Lincoln poaching Ford customers because that’s what it’s there for, in part, to retain customers looking for something more than the Ford brand offers or symbolizes.

          That’s why Acura is way ahead of Lincoln in sales. Also, nobody would move up from Ford to Lincoln (that thinking went out the window years ago) because Lincoln has now become Mercury. Nowadays, people will move from Ford to Cadillac, Genesis, Acura, Infiniti, Lexus, Mercedes or BMW because they are first rate luxury brands with full line vehicles. Lincoln has nothing to inspire a young person.

    wind and solar only currently make 15% of Michigan’s electricity needs and solar is only 1% of that. People thinking they can fill the needs of everyone being pushed into electricity are not living in reality. It will take 50 yrs and new nuclear just to replace our current electric usage.

      Won’t take 50 years.

      Agree, nuke is a good alternative to carbon based generation.
