2020 Lincoln Aviator under development

2020 Lincoln Aviator under development

- Production spec model spotted on test soon after the concept’s unveiling. 

- Lincoln to use the same platform that Ford uses, allowing them future RWD possibilities 

- To go on sale in 2019, likely as a 2020 model. 

Lincoln just revealed a near-production Aviator concept at the 2018 New York Auto Show. Now, the brand is hard at work developing a production spec car for the US market. 

The Aviator will ride on the all-new D6 Architecture. The D6 platform, which will be shared with Ford, is flexible enough to accommodate front, rear, or all-wheel drive powertrains. This should translate to future Lincoln products being equipped with rear wheel drive. 

The interior design shown on the Aviator concept was Navigator-like but featured a more classic looking 12-inch center screen (not like a floating tablet) mounted atop the instrument panel with the gear shifter controls located horizontally below the screen. The front seats offer 30-way adjustability, a massage feature, and plenty of room for six-foot tall adults in the second and third rows. Wireless phone charging was also featured in the front console.

Lincoln did not announce powertrains, but they did say that the concept shown is a twin-turbocharged plug-in hybrid. The three-litre twin-turbo V6 is probably the best bet. The charging door could not be seen on the concept, leading us to believe that Lincoln might be exploring wireless charging or just intentionally left it off the for the aesthetics of the design.

The Aviator will go on sale during the 2019 calendar year, likely as a 2020 model.
