Lincoln Aviator Production Increased In January 2024

Lincoln Aviator production at the Chicago Assembly plant hasn’t exactly reached any sort of notably high figure for a long time, with just a couple thousand units of the luxury crossover being built each month, at best. However, things reached a new low for the Aviator and the Ford Explorer when production came to a standstill during the United Auto Workers (UAW) strike last fall. In fact, in October, Lincoln Aviator production totaled a mere 28 units, though it rebounded in a big way in November as 2,361 units were built, followed by 2,447 in December. That figure only continued to grow in January as well, according to FoMoCo’s latest sales report.

Last month, a grand total of 2,854 Lincoln Aviator crossovers were built at the Chicago Assembly plant, which is a 16.63 percent increase month-over-month. For now, at least, these Aviators are 2024 model year examples, as production of the refreshed 2025 Lincoln Aviator isn’t slated to begin until this summer. Regardless, this upward trend in production nearly mirrors that of the Ford Explorer on which it’s based, as Ford Authority recently reported.

As for the refreshed 2025 Lincoln Aviator, when it does arrive in a few months, it will so so bearing a host of updates for customers in the mid-size luxury crossover segment. Those include 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, along with the new Lincoln Digital Experience infotainment software, the addition of BlueCruise as an option, a larger 13.2-inch infotainment screen, and a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster.

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.
