2025 Lincoln Aviator Production Also Kicks Off This May

Shortly after the refreshed 2025 Ford Explorer debuted at the beginning of February, it was followed by its more luxurious counterpart, the 2025 Lincoln Aviator, which was officially unveiled just four days later. As Ford Authority reported last week, production of the 2025 Ford Explorer is slated to begin at the Chicago Assembly plant on May 13th, though production of the Police Interceptor Utility won’t commence until a bit later, on June 3rd. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the 2025 Lincoln Aviator will also enter production in May, too.

In fact, 2025 Lincoln Aviator production is also currently scheduled to begin at the Chicago Assembly plant on May 13th, which isn’t terribly surprising given how much these two models share in common. Regardless, as is always the case, these dates are subject to change, and in recent years, they tend to do precisely that given ongoing supply chain issues and other factors.

The 2025 Aviator has received a host of changes as part of its mid-cycle refresh, including – on the outside – 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, plus some revamped packages. Inside, customers will find a new, larger 13.2-inch infotainment screen and 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, running the new Lincoln Digital Experience software, while BlueCruise is available for the first time, too.

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. The refreshed Aviator is slated to launch this summer, but as Ford Authority reported earlier this month, it’s also significantly more expensive than its predecessor.

    Looks really sharp not sure getting rid of the hybrid was a smart move. Unless the EV is coming out soon.
