Default Lincoln Aviator

Wow...Lincoln really knocked this one out of the park. The Navigator looked great, now a RWD/AWD Lincoln Aviator.

Looks to be production ready. Very impressive.

Really liking the look of it on first impression. Was not expecting it to be launched this year so just leased a Platinum Explorer - maybe should have waited!

Did you work on this?

Lincoln is on a role...they can't make the Navigator fast enough, should be the same as the Aviator.

Looks super! That hybrid platform is the right direction. I like this one better than the Navi. Like the lines flow much better.

I like it too. It looks a bit like a cross between a Rover / Infinite. I don't know if I like that push button transmission set up ......

I have the same thought with that and the dial on the new Expedition. I guess it is something you get used to. With all the tech being put into vehicles I'm sure soon you will just have to think about which direction you want to go and the vehicle will do it!

Volvo/Jaguar font end, RangRover sport everywhere else... RR/Audi interior. They seem to have pulled all the goodies from each popular brand into this one.

It took them a dozen years to get around to updating these vehicles; that's more than enough time to get it right.

I gotta say Lincoln has been killing it - really like the looks of their stuff.

Much better than Buicks "we know you don't think it's a Buick because it's not a POS but it is indeed a Buick but still fugly. Enjoy."

Thanks a bunch

Cool to see the vehicles after many long - some times challenging "days" of development.

They are all electronic these days even if you get a shift lever. So in theory they can put the shift mechanism anywhere you could put a switch. But yes I do like the big fat shift lever on my new 2018 F150 more than a dial or something else. I'm old I guess.

Glad they got rid of the "MK_" monikers. I never could figure out what was what. Infiniti has screwed with all their model designations too and they make no sense.

Actually it was made from 2003 to 2005. It was ugly then and is ugly now.
