2025 Lincoln Aviator Debuts With New Tech, BlueCruise

Just last week, the refreshed 2025 Ford Explorer debuted with a revamped trim level lineup, a simplified powertrain range, and the typical exterior and interior styling updates – plus the arrival of the all new Ford Digital Experience infotainment system. Thus, it was clear that it was only a matter of time before the Explorer’s more luxurious counterpart – the 2025 Lincoln Aviator – was also fully revealed. Now, that’s precisely the case, as FoMoCo has officially pulled the covers off the latest version of that model, too.

On the outside, the 2025 Lincoln Aviator has been treated to the same sort of updates as the Explorer, meaning that it sports a revised front and rear fascia with an updated contoured mesh grille that’s also been raised a bit, coupled with new LED headlamps and running lamps that span the width of the front end – perfect for showing off a series of welcome animations when a user approaches the vehicle and/or turns it off.

Meanwhile, the Illumination Package – which is standard on Reserve and Black Label trims – adds an illuminated Lincoln star logo in the grill, plus adaptive pixel LED headlamps, speed dependent lighting, adaptive bending lighting, and Lincoln dynamic signature lighting with LED daytime running lamps. Black Label models get two new exterior color options – Cenote Green and Whisper Blue Metallic. A set of 20-inch bright machined aluminum wheels with Magnetic-painted pockets comes standard, while 22-inch Ebony Black bright machined aluminum wheels with gloss-painted pockets and center caps are available as an option.

Those that want a bit more style can opt for the new Jet Package – which is available on all 2025 Lincoln Aviator trims – that adds a series of black exterior accents including the grille insert, fender and door badging, front and rear door spears, window surrounds, and roof rack side rails, coupled with body color lower front and rear fascias, door cladding, and wheel lips. Wheel options for the Jet Package vary based on trim, with a unique option reserved for each. Alternatively, the Lincoln Black Label Special Edition package adds a black painted roof, 22-inch Ebony Black bright-machined wheels, and a black grille insert, fender and door badging, front and rear door spears, window surrounds and roof rack side rails.

Inside the cabin, the 2025 Lincoln Aviator also gets the automaker’s new infotainment software – in this case, known as the Lincoln Digital Experience – which adds a host of built-in apps from Google and other third-party companies. There’s also a new, larger 13.2-inch infotainment screen present inside, coupled with a new 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster to boot. BlueCruise is now available in the Aviator for the first time as well, along with four new interior color schemes for the Reserve trim – Onyx, Light Space Gray, Harvest Bronze with Onyx accents, and Hot Chocolate with Onyx accents.

In terms of powertrains, the 2025 Lincoln Aviator comes equipped with just one, for now – the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 EcoBoost, which generates the same 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque as the outgoing model, and is mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission. Order banks for the refreshed Aviator are open now, with the first deliveries expected to take place this summer.

    Good looking upgrade, but I want physical HVAC buttons!

    Great work overall, front looks amazing. The rear needs some love too! Deleting HVAC buttons is the new trend unfortunately. Getting rid of the hybrid was a big mistake. Likely reason 14% take rate and new EV coming.

    I’m wondering why the Aviator (and other Lincolns) only get BlueCruise 1.2? Why not 1.3 at least? Also $90k for a Black Label is insane, definitely overcharging.

  5. Sync Fan

    Why did they go with Android Automotive! Bring back Sync 4!

    The vehicles are getting higher in MSRP, and standard items are starting to be optional. Paying more and getting less. I am a Lincoln family, but the choices are getting fewer.
