2023 Lincoln Aviator

The 2023 Lincoln Aviator represents the three-row luxury crossover’s third model year, bringing minor changes and updates ahead of a refresh for the 2024 model year.

Model Line

The 2023 Lincoln Aviator continues to offer five trim levels:

  • Aviator (100A)
  • Aviator Reserve (200A/201A)
  • Aviator Grand Touring (300A/301A)
  • Aviator Black Label (800A)
  • Aviator Black Label Grand Touring (900A)

Changes and Updates

The 2023 Lincoln Aviator lost two exterior color options that were previously available on the 2022 model year. These colors are Bronze Smoke Metallic and Burgundy Velvet Metallic. In their place, two new color options were added РDiamond Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat Paint and Jewel Sandstone Premium Colorant.

Inside, the Standard and Reserve trim levels replace 12-way adjustability for the front two seats with 10-way adjustability for the driver’s seat and eight-way for the front passenger seat. Additionally, customers can opt to forego the vehicle’s head-up display (HUD) feature.


There are two powertrains available for the 2023 Lincoln Aviator.

Engine Fuel Transmission Drivetrain Horsepower Torque Rear Axle
Twin-turbo 3.0L V6 EcoBoost Gasoline 10-Speed Auto RWD 400 415 3.58
Twin-turbo 3.0L V6 EcoBoost Gasoline 10-Speed Auto AWD 400 415 3.31
Twin-turbo 3.0L V6 EcoBoost PHEV Gasoline plug-in hybrid electric 10-Speed Auto AWD 494 630 3.31

The first is the twin-turbocharged Ford 3.0L V6 EcoBoost engine, which produces 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with Ford’s ten-speed automatic transmission driving either the rear wheels or all four wheels via the all-wheel-drive system. The powertrain is standard on Standard, Reserve, and Black Label trims.

Additionally, the Aviator can be outfitted with the twin-turbocharged Ford 3.0L V6 engine mated to a Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) system, rated at a combined system output of 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. Ford’s ten-speed automatic transmission is mated exclusively to an all-wheel-drive system. This powertrain is solely available on Grand Touring and Black Label Grand Touring trims.
