The all-new Lincoln Aviator is built on a shared real-wheel-drive platform with the Ford Explorer. Lincoln takes this new, capable platform and builds a true "traditional Luxury" SUV. It starts with solid styling and Aviation inspired cues on the outside and a high-end escape on the inside. The idea is to build a 7-passenger luxury SUV that allows the passengers to be surrounded in a sanctuary, removed from the outside world. To make this new Lincoln Aviator luxury SUV feel so effortless is plenty of power and a smooth and luxurious air suspension. The base engine is a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 with 400hp and 415 lb.-ft. of torque matched to a 10-speed automatic. Later a hybrid version will be available with 494hp and 630lb.-ft. of torque. The effortless luxury and power is a throwback to when Lincoln dominated luxury sales in North America. This approach is very different from what the German and Japanese are doing in this space.The front seats have 30-way adjustment and massage features, plus there is a camera system that reads the road to detect potholes and softens the suspension to make the ride alter smooth.The base suspension is a coil spring with active dampers. The al-new Lincoln Aviator is a major step in the right direction for Lincoln.
