Lincoln unveiled its new design language with the new Continental, which the Navigator followed too. Now, Lincoln has rolled off its all new 2020 Aviator. Filling the gap between the smaller Nautilus and full-sized Navigator, the new 2020 Aviator is a 7-seater Luxury SUV that marks Lincoln’s entry into the hot three-row SUV segment. This is one segment that has forever been on a rise since Acura intorduced their MDX.

So with the 2020 Aviator, Lincoln is looking to dominate the segment of three-row SUVs. That might work for the manufacturer well as the new Aviator definitely looks promising. It holds true to Lincoln's philosophy of making cars that are uber-premium but are also pocket-friendly. However, as already mentioned, this segment is quite competitive and coming out on top is not an easy task.

Expert Review

Overall Rating


The first-gen Aviator, after being discontinued in 2005, was succeeded by the MKT. Come 2020, and Lincoln decides to flip the coin again. The new 2020 Aviator succeeds Lincoln MKT and is not only based on the Explorer but also borrows the brawny V6 from the Explorer ST. Thankfully though, it neither feels nor drives like the Explorer. It has a very distinct character of its own. The solid presence of a Lincoln and it's super-luxury interiors is what makes the 2020 Aviator one of the finest blends of automotive craftsmanship, coming from the land of liberty.

At a sticker price of $51,100, the Lincoln Aviator is probably one of the most luxurious presentations you can get in the states, thanks to the stunning wood and leather artistry inside the cabin, and its beyond luxury features. You don't get 30-way power-adjustable seats and 28 speakers even in a Rolls-Royce or a Bentley. This perfectly-bred 7-seater provides a composition which no other American car manufacturer has, for a long time. Its opulence is charismatic enough to compel those considering the Audi Q7, Volvo XC90 and the Acura MDX to swing its way.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Features

8.0/10

Lincoln is offering the 2020 Aviator in three basic trims with regular gasoline powertrains. The base Standard, the balanced Reserve and the mind-boggling Black Label. The equation is pretty linear here; higher the trim level, deeper gets the hole in your pocket and more pronounced gets the character of this beauty.

Nonetheless, you probably cannot go wrong with the Aviator. All the variants share the same intrinsic characters and offer price-appropriate features. The only choice that remains is how suave you'd prefer your Aviator to be.

Apart from the regular V6 based trims, there are two plug-in hybrid trims of the 2020 Aviator as well, namely Grand Touring and Grand Touring Black Label, priced at $68,800 and $87,800 respectively. Underneath both these trims lies the same V6 engine paired with a 75 kw electric motor and a 13.6-kWh battery pack.

A similar variation in nuances between the Reserve and Black label also draws a line between the Grand Touring and Grand Touring Black Label. The Standard and Reserve trims get rear-wheel drive as standard, with an AWD option, while the Black Label and hybrid trims get standard all wheel drive as a stand-alone choice.

We recommend

We recommend picking up the mid-level Reserve trim which packs overwhelming amount of luxury, enough to make you happily live with the Aviator without any whine.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Engine and Performance

6.0/10

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator shares its 400 horsepower V6 with the new Explorer ST. However, it rebukes its ancestral codes and is not a rebadged Explorer anymore. A new architecture not only enhances the overall engagement of the engine but also changes its layout and positioning. The V6 unit now sits behind the nose in a 90 degree rotated position that allows better power distribution among the wheels.

Driving out the 2020 Aviator, you never feel any power lag at any point of time. The 400 horses rev with a grin and yes the engine does appreciate your spirited adrenaline. Shift it to “Excite mode”, (Lincoln’s gimmickry for sport mode) hit the pedal hard and the engine instantly sips up an energy drink. The surge in energy gets noticeable in the way the engine starts responding to your inputs instantly along with the exhaust getting rowdier.

2020 Lincoln Aviator SUV has a 3.0L V6 engine

What makes the engine so pungent is the intuitive 10-speed automatic transmission which teams up with the V6 effortlessly. The gear ratios are perfectly tailored for the Aviator’s mechanics and it never feels out of place. Gear shifts are very responsive and smooth without any flick, and they keep the mighty bad boy underneath the hood, always tamed.

The Aviator towers over its rivals on the power table. It is pretty surprising to see an almost 4800 lbs vehicle so light on its feet. The beefy engine does make the Aviator fast enough for its size, however, it is still not the peppiest. Long 3-row SUVs persist in a very different purpose, they are ideally not crafted to ace the ring tests.

How fast is the Lincoln Aviator?

Despite its chunkier mass, the Aviator is not slouching at all, and returns an impressive run, be it chasing quarter mile or to the 60 mph mark. The 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission does a phenomenal job of putting power down to the ground. It even includes paddle shifters for that manual feel of holding on to each gear. Further, an upgraded suspension, on the nose steering and a powerful base engine, is what makes the Aviator this alacritous.

2020 Lincoln Aviator SUV reaches 0-60 MPH in just 5.4 sec

The energy kick, that pours in right when you hit the throttle hard, is delightful enough to put a grin on your face. The Aviator’s briskness for its size is not something that you do not really get in every other 7-seater crossover. Its Naturally Aspirated V6 defies all laws of physics and simply focuses on rewarding the driver with immense power when set in Excite Mode.

The standard 400 hp V6 certainly makes the Aviator, stand tall among its competitors. The base engine in other cars in the competition is certainly lesser than that of the Aviator’s, translating into their hindered sprints. However, in contrast to Aviator’s sole powertrain, the other members in the table do come with higher engine options that promise an even better show than the Aviator.

How well does the Lincoln Aviator ride?

Out on the roads, the Aviator pampers you with its tranquility. It now rides on a new architecture with an improved suspension, that uses a short-long-arm setup paired with an integral link rear suspension, ditching the Explorer’s McPherson strut front/multi-link rear suspension. The mechanical enhancements do reflect in the way it behaves on the road and its modest operation feels as if it is married to the ground.

Step up to the range-topping Black Label, which along with the standard AWD, also gets the dynamic handling package with adaptive air-glide air suspension and road preview. The road preview feature, with the help of a camera, scans the road ahead and adjusts the suspension according to the road conditions, and it does its job really well. These tech supplements and the premium interior build quality not only translate into a surprisingly silent cabin but also into a cushion smooth ride quality of the 2020 Aviator.

2020 Lincoln Aviator SUV Ride and Handling

Also offered with the Dynamic handling package is the Active steering wheel, which as the name suggests, very actively communicates with the driver and makes this large box of wood and leather feel very nimble. The steering is so well balanced that you actually don't feel that you are driving an almost 4800 lbs. 7-seater SUV. Having said about balance and stability, grab the Lincoln Co-pilot 360 plus package that rewards you with an evasive steering assist feature which provides extra stability to the Aviator while cornering.

How do the brakes on the Lincoln Aviator perform?

The overall change theory which the Aviator endorses, is followed up by the braking section as well. It gets discs and ABS in all the wheels as standard, and the brakes are hard enough to gently bring this heavy box to a halt. There is some lack in response from the brakes initially but in no way is it discomforting. That only requires some getting used to, and once you do, taming this SUV definitely becomes a lot easier.

The brake pedals are firm and responsive, rewarding you with a strong sense of stopping power under your feet. However, at sudden and hard braking circumstances, you do feel that extra length and the weight of the Aviator lumping behind.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Fuel Economy

4.0/10

Considering its overall proportions and resting in the mid-size, 7-seater SUV segment, the 2020 Aviator’s MPG is indeed a healthy output. Although some SUVs of the same category might offer better efficiency but what's noteworthy about the Aviator is the fact that it manages to offer decent fuel economy despite making immense power. Considering the aforementioned factor, the Aviator turns out to be more propitious than its competition.

The rotated engine placement under the hood allowing for efficient power management coupled with the enhanced dynamic handling package and a refined 10-speed automatic transmission is what makes the Aviator’s mileage stand out. It also has a relatively big fuel tank which improves its range further.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Interior

8.0/10

The Aviator’s interior is a paradise for those with an appetite for splendor and fastidity. The wood and leather quilted cabin with a neatly contoured layout is sweetening enough to displease some of the German heavy-weights. This is one interior drenched in premium soft leather, be it on the seats, dashboard, or the door inlays.

Having said about seats, the ones installed in this beauty are probably one of the best seats you can in the States. The front seats are not only very well padded but you can also adjust them in 10, 12 or 30 different ways, depending on the variant. Once you find out your perfect seating position, don't forget to set up the memory of your seating position.

2020 Lincoln Aviator SUV Front Seats

Though for that extra mile opulence, you need to upgrade to the Black Label trim. The front seats get heated, ventilated and massage function and so do the rear captain seats. These brilliantly contoured seats are comfortable enough to hug you all day long and their suppleness further complements the Aviator’s ride quality. Not to forget though, what's also on offer best in a class all around space, not in the third row though.

At the heart of Aviator’s interior, lies the streamlined and minimalistic dashboard with piano black and metal accents with exemplary detail to attention. The best part of this interior is how thoughtfully Lincoln has placed different elements. Be it the overhead 10.1 inch central display, the streamlined housing of the AC vents, real wood inserts in the central console or the floating central panel with metal and piano black treatment.

2020 Lincoln Aviator SUV Dashboard Design

What’s even more interesting is that, though most of the functionality of the Aviator can be operated through the central touch screen, you do have physical buttons with metallic outlines sitting in the pool of textured metal. The physical buttons are not only convenient to use but they also aggravate the classy appeal inside. These make controlling the various functions while driving that much more easier.

The standard color combination already works well with the interiors but yes, you have the further option of customizing the interior with several optional theme packages. Overall the interior ambience of the Aviator is more than pleasing and looks very upscale. It is very heavily focused around premium luxury and in that process it tries to walk beyond the existing boundaries of luxuries.

How is the Infotainment inside the Lincoln Aviator?

The highlight of the infotainment is the 10.1-inch touchscreen display that sits atop the leather-wrapped dashboard. It does get Lincoln Play along with Apple Carplay and Android Auto as standard with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. You can control almost everything through the central screen like temperature, your playlist, or even adjust the volume coming in through the marvelous 10 speaker Lincoln Premium sound system. An even more majestic 28-speaker Revel sound system is also available as an option, which is standard on the Black Label.

2020 Lincoln Aviator SUV has a 10.1 in. touchscreen Infotainment Display

What the infotainment system basically runs on is Ford's Sync 3 which Ford also uses in its smaller cars. The display is crisp with decent graphics, however, it is not as delightful and responsive as the one in XC90 or the Audi Q7. There is a certain lag in the feedback coming from the system and you need to quite heavily push down on it to register your input. The infotainment includes feature like:

  • Lincoln Play
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Navigation
  • SiriusXM satellite Radio

How comfortable is the Lincoln Aviator for occupants?

Clearly, having a spacious cabin and comfortable seats doesn't cut it in the market today. The car also has to have enough features that make it that much more indulging. Surely enough, the Aviator is also loaded to the brim with features that include:

  • Ambient lighting
  • Quad-zone climate control
  • Power tilt/telescoping steering column
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Heated/ventilated front and second row seats
  • 2nd row captain seats
  • 28-speaker Revel Ultima 3D audio system
  • 4 USB ports
  • 30-way power adjustable seats with lumbar support

How much cargo can the Lincoln Aviator carry?

Head out for a long weekend tour with your family and friends in the Aviator and its best in class cargo space happily braces all your packages. The Navigator-like stretched out proportions with a long wheelbase and wider body honors the Aviator with a generous cargo area even with all the seats up.

​2020 Lincoln Aviator's cargo volume is 18.3 cu. ft.

However, if you need some extra space, well you do have the liberty of folding the second and third-row seats that opens up pools of storage area. Furthermore, there are several small storage space inside the cabin of the Aviator too. So there is no shortage of space for sure.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Exterior

8.0/10

The exterior design of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator is not something very unique, but thankfully though it is not as intimidating as the MKT. The Aviator is unmistakably a Lincoln, inheriting much of the design cues from its larger sibling, the Navigator. The Aviator too follows Lincoln’s new design theme, first introduced with the new Continental and later also seen in the new Navigator.

 ​2020 Lincoln Aviator SUV Three Quarter View

There's a lowered hood line, and the front face boasts signature Lincoln grille and headlights with signature LED’s and yes, you do get those very Lincoln-ish horizontal run through tail lamps. The side proportions have a more estately appeal unlike the hunkier, full-blown SUV stance of the Navigator. The lowered body creases stretching behind the C pillar add to the humble family carrier appearance of the Aviator. The overall body proportions of the Aviator make it look like a toned down Navigator.

The 119.1-inch wheelbase and 79.6 inches of body width not only add to its gentle exterior presence but also enhance its stability and ride quality.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Competition

Lincoln Aviator vs Audi Q7

The Aviator and the Q7 go neck to neck in the competition. Both these cars seat seven, boast spacious interior, are aptly draped in luxury and are generously equipped as well. However, the Aviator, with its flamboyant opulence, advanced features that aid its driveability and robust engine certainly has an edge over the Audi Q7.

What would you consider the Volvo XC90 for? 7 seats, thoughtful interior appointments and space, extensive tech and safety features and yes, the minimalistic yet classy approach both on the inside and the outside? Well, the Aviator, unhesitantly checks all of these boxes with greater sincerity, and what rests above all is it is lively and fun to drive powertrain. To top things further, the Aviator’s behavior on the road is more disciplined than the XC90.

Lincoln Aviator vs Cadillac XT6

Cadillac’s prominence of making premium cars, its utilitarian character and the premium price range is what makes the XT6 stand opposite to the Aviator. On the turf, the XT6 falls miles short of the Aviator in terms of build quality, interior appointments and ride comfort. What further puts a nail in the XT6’s coffin is its laggy powertrain. That way, the Aviator easily trumps over the Cadillac XT6.

Lincoln Aviator vs Acura MDX

In this standoff, the Lincoln Aviator completely overpowers the Acura MDX. The MDX itself is a decent and respected midsize seven-seater crossover, but it is just not as good as the Aviator. The Aviator is plusher inside and certainly has more presence on the outside than the MDX. Not only this, the Aviator apart from being richer in technology packages, also offers better interior space along with excellent ride quality.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Final Verdict

8.8/10

The majestic Lincoln Aviator is one machine that certainly stands out in its class with its wholesomeness. It certainly knocks out its competition in the way it rides and handles, the comfort it provides, its stimulating drivetrain and last but not least, its sheer nobility on the inside. 

What’s most exciting with the Aviator is the attentive placement of every single element inside the cabin. The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is an all new vehicle and it does have a pleasing freshness in it. As an overall package, particularly at the price, there’s no other product in the segment that can overstep the Aviator, at least for now.

Wondering why Lincoln usually are comparatively expensive? Get this Avaitor for your towing and daily commuting needs and you'll get all the answers. Made out to shine, it can leave the tarmac, tow and haul big time and even come handy in showing off at time if needed. And yeah, comes with a price which is due everyday at the gas station

Overall Review

9 /10 Overall Rating

With impeccable built quality, Aviator comes to rescue when the requirements go out of hand. Throttle response that could put the most sports hatches and sedans to shame, it never runs out of that mustard when flooring the pedal. First lincoln and the driving experience couldn't have been any better

Lincoln has created a perfect luxury SUV. Nothing comes close. It is so refined and smooth to drive. The power delivery is great and so is the ride quality. The driver-assist features work like a charm especially cruise control.

Elegant and won't take a beating

Such a huge size never creeps against driving in city traffic because of wonderful maneuverability and amazing precision of handling. For even better driving experience, it even features the adaptive suspension. With that being said, I think Lincoln has bumped it with the elegant factor and taking it to remote places doesn't sound like a good idea.
