The all-new 2021 Lincoln Aviator is getting further refreshments. After the great success of the 2020 Aviator, the arriving model will try to improve every category. For that reason, Lincoln should provide various types of upgrades. Aviator is looking very upright and sleeker than most of its rivals. Luxury is everywhere.
On top of that, Aviator comes with a spacious interior and a very high level of comfort. In terms of performance, Aviator will offer a regular gasoline engine. However, the plug-in hybrid version will be a more popular choice for sure. It is a real family SUV with character and its Black Label version is one of the most luxurious SUVs in the world.
2021 Aviator Provides Generous Interior Room
There is no need to write about the interior features and the level of luxury inside the cabin. The 2021 Lincoln Aviator is a very premium SUV so don’t expect cheap stuff or anything similar. What we like about this SUV is its spacious interior. Moreover, the cabin is more than practical. The first two rows are providing very ample legroom. First-row occupants can enjoy 43 inches of legroom and second-row passengers will have 40.1 inches. As with any other SUV, the third row is a little tight for the adults. Still, 29.2 inches of legroom is better than the Aviator’s rivals have to offer.
Interestingly, thanks to the latest changes, there are now 119 inches between the axles. With such a spacious interior, you don’t have to worry about the longer trips. You can easily fit the whole family in Aviator and travel for long periods. On top of that, the cargo area provides 18 cubic feet of space. Fold the third-row seats down and you will get 42.2 cubic feet. Maximum cargo capacity has been rated at 78 cubic feet, which is impressive.
Exterior and Interior Changes
New 2021 Lincoln Aviator will arrive with minor changes. Don’t expect anything significant to happen in the following months. We are going to see the same styling and the same design. Aviator wears relatively new Lincoln’s design language and it looks very upright. You will find a lot of similar cues that you can see on the current Navigator SUV. That especially includes the front fascia with the impressive grille and recognizable headlights. The overall shape is very sleek and the only upgrade will be new optional features.
Inside the cabin, the 2021 Aviator will both look and feel luxurious. Besides the spacious interior, Aviator comes with an impressive list of standard equipment. You can count on plenty of driver-assistance systems and high-tech amenities. The infotainment system will get the latest updates and we are hoping to see the larger optional display. Besides that, nothing else will happen. Aviator will continue with the same dashboard and the steering wheel is also unchanged. The good news is that the interior color schemes will remain.
Aviator and Aviator Grand Touring Engine Specs
A 3.0-liter turbo V6 remains a standard engine option. Thanks to that, 2021 Lincoln Aviator will provide 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. Yes, it is a lot of power but a plug-in hybrid version will deliver even better performances. Aviator Hybrid will carry the name “Grand Touring” and it will generate almost 500 horses.
On top of that, its torque has been rated at 630 lb-ft, thanks to a dual-motor setup. Both variants will deploy the same 10-speed automatic transmission. Logically, a hybrid variant will deliver higher fuel efficiency figures. Still, we are waiting for the manufacturer to release official numbers.
2021 Lincoln Aviator Price and Release Date
For such a luxury SUV, the starting price is affordable. The 2021 Lincoln Aviator will cost $52,500, while the hybrid version around $63,000. Black Label trim level won’t start below $90,000 and it is one of the most luxurious models you can find in the segment. Lincoln will release the new Aviator SUV this summer.
