Lincoln Aviator Production Decreased In April 2024

After a short shutdown that stemmed from the United Auto Workers (UAW) strike last fall, Lincoln Aviator and Ford Explorer production at the Chicago Assembly plant rebounded in a big way. In fact, Lincoln Aviator production, specifically, increased in November, December, and January before tapering off a bit in March. Now, in its final month of production for the 2024 model year, Lincoln Aviator production decreased in a big way in April as well.

According to Ford’s latest sales report, Lincoln Aviator production at CAP dropped from 3,175 units in March to 1,601 in April, which is a decrease of 1,574 units or just under 50 percent. That’s the lowest total of the 2024 calendar year thus far, but given the fact that production of the refreshed 2025 Lincoln Aviator began earlier this month, completely expected as well. In fact, production of the Explorer also dropped last month, totaling 20,097 units – a month-over-month decrease of 4,595 units or just under 19 percent.

As for the refreshed 2025 Lincoln Aviator, when it does arrive in the coming weeks, it will do 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 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.
