The upcoming 2023 Lincoln Aviator is a premium SUV with a premium cabin design and very modern styling. It has a comfortable interior and powerful engines. The Aviator has the same level of luxury as the bigger Navigator, but it’s smaller. Models such as Volvo XC90 or BMW X5 are offering slightly better performances, but Aviator is very much competitive SUV. By 2023, this SUV is said to be getting a few small changes, which should make it even more competitive.
We anticipate that all versions will arrive with a dependable twin-turbocharged V6 engine capable of delivering exceptional performance. It will also have a plug-in hybrid Grand Touring version, which should give it a little extra power because it has a motor that runs on electricity. Blue Oval also plans to introduce an all-electric version, most likely in 2024.
Lincoln Aviator Exterior Colors and Appearance Packages
As for the styling, the new 2023 Lincoln Aviator is a very modern and premium SUV, just like the Navigator, but smaller in size. The Aviator model will arrive with the same dimensions as the outgoing model. This SUV is almost 200 inches long and 82.2 inches wide. To start with, the Aviator has a chrome mesh grille, updated LED headlights, and a variety of alloy-wheel options. The new Appearance package is rolling on new 20-inch alloy wheels, but the 22-inch wheels are available on higher trims that come with the new package.
There are two new exterior paints that were added last year. New colors are Gilded Green and Bronze Smoke. Grand Touring versions come in Flight Blue color. There is also the Jet Package with 22-inch black aluminum wheels and a black front grille. The package basically paints everything in black, including roof rails, glass surrounds, and more.
The next 2023 Lincoln Aviator will remain a three-row SUV with a room for seven passengers. The interior is roomy enough, even for the adults in the third row. The comfort is admirable, which comes as no surprise. Lincoln is known for its impressive build quality and plush interiors. Moreover, even the base trim level comes with power-adjustable front seats.
To get the 30-way version, you need a Black Label model that also has massage functions. The 2023MY will have a cleaner dashboard with a 10.1-inch display and a 12.3-inch digital driver information screen. As before, Aviator will continue to offer Wi-Fi, phone integrations, satellite radio, and more. On top of that, we should expect slightly more safety equipment this time.
The forthcoming 2023 Lincoln Aviator has the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. Moreover, the same 10-speed automatic transmission is available once again. This engine can make 400 horsepower with the standard RWD system. Still, you can get AWD setup as an option.
As before, the Grand Touring and Black Label Grand Touring versions have the same type of engine: a plug-in hybrid. This PHEV configuration is using a twin-turbo V6 that is linked to an electric motor that is powered by a battery that has lithium-ion cells. All-wheel drive comes as standard and the Aviator plug-in hybrid can go 21 miles on electric power alone. With the V6 engine, this SUV has a 6,700 pounds of towing capacity. A hybrid variant can tow around 5,000.
