Lincoln continues to rename its MK range. After Nautilus, the 2019 Lincoln Aviator is another addition to the crossover lineup. With such naming, we will be able to recognize vehicles easier. This SUV is part of the mid-size fleet, and it takes a slot under the Navigator. At New York Auto Show we could see a debut of the vehicle, which is packed with some stunning driving-assist features. Of course, luxurious pedigree is never in doubt with Lincoln.
The model we saw in New York is almost production-ready. It is not a concept, so the big changes are still to be made on the SUV. Minor tuning and modifications will happen before the 2019 Lincoln Aviator hits showrooms. Also, fans are still waiting for confirmation of specs and engine lineup. According to rumors, powerful units will be under the bonnet of the new crossover.
2019 Lincoln Aviator Key Features
The company paid a lot of attention to details and modern technologies. A step ahead from the competition, the 2019 Lincoln Aviator will get a keyless remote. All you need is your smartphone. With it, you can unlock and start the vehicle. The SYNC system in the Aviator will offer you the navigation to the nearest gas station when you are low on fuel. On-board Wi-Fi and wireless charging are standard features on other Lincoln vehicles as well.
The 2019 Lincoln Aviator also show us a new era of safety features. The Suspension Preview Technology is a brand-new innovation from the company. The front camera will scan the road and automatically adjust the suspension. Depending on terrain, road condition, and bumps on surfaces, damping system will make a ride more comfortable.
Whatsoever, the 2019 Lincoln Aviator is packed with a lot of accessories and equipment we can find elsewhere. Co-Pilot by Lincoln, pedestrian detection with automatic brakes, lane departure warning and lane keep assist…and many more. The crossover also has additional packages that include assist feature for reverse braking.
2019 Lincoln Aviator Specs
It is likely that the 2019 Lincoln Aviator will borrow the drivetrain from Navigator. Experts are pretty sure in this. A 3.5-liter V-6 engine is using a twin-turbo system on Lincoln’s flagship model. For Aviator, it could be detuned from 450 horses and 510 lb-ft of torque. The plain engine would be less potent and slightly fuel-friendlier. Nevertheless, owners of luxurious SUVs are not paying too much attention to the mileage of their vehicles. Just for the record, the new crossover will return at least 21 mpg combined.
The engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The router will spread the energy to all wheels optionally, and by default, it sends power to the 4×2 system. Furthermore, good thing is that engine is not taking premium fuel only. Dropping of the turbocharger will downgrade towing capacity of the powertrain. Properly equipped, Navigator can tow up to 8,700 pounds. The 2019 Lincoln Aviator won’t go such high.
2019 Lincoln Aviator Design
The 2019 Lincoln Aviator will be a three-row mid-size crossover. It is smaller than Navigator and bigger than new Nautilus. So, the position between these two is reserved for Aviator. As its name says, designers found inspiration in aircraft and planes. This SUV will be aerodynamic and its aesthetic exterior will give it many benefits. Fuel economy improvements, better acceleration, and driving impression are just some of them.
2019 Lincoln Aviator Price and Launch Date
We saw just a preview of this vehicle. Until it gets into production, minor changes are possible. But, these won’t radically change the 2019 Lincoln Aviator. Sales could start by the end of this year. Initial price should be attractive to lure more buyers. However, don’t expect from Lincoln to sell its vehicle for cheap. Finally, they are making luxurious cars, and the cost will probably be over $50,000. However, we still wait for precise data.
