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.
The 2023 Lincoln Aviator continues to offer five trim levels:

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 – Diamond 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.
