An all-new platform and a range topping 400-horsepower hybrid are amongst the highlights of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator, a midsize 3-row SUV set to challenge competitors like the Acura MDX, Audi Q7 and Mercedes-Benz GLE. The Aviator will be used in 5 trim levels beginning at $51,100 for the Aviator Standard and varying approximately $87,800 for the Aviator Black Label Grand Touring. Rates omit $1,095 location.
Although there were reports that Lincoln is changing MKT with Aviator, both crossovers will appear next season. The new model is taking the position in the mid-size class. The 2019 Lincoln MKT is going to be slotted in between Aviator and the full-size Navigator. Nonetheless, eventually the MKT will need to change its name. Lincoln will do it with all vehicles beginning with MK. More identifiable names will make it clear to purchasers which class the vehicle comes from.
For 2018, the Lincoln Navigator went through a significant redesign that ushered in a more upscale look, a more refined interior, new technology, and an updated powertrain with significantly more power. With the paint still drying on this new style, we anticipate no changes when the 2019 Lincoln Navigator hits display rooms.
