Lincoln had hinted at an Aviator reboot not long ago in advance of the New York International Auto Show. Now we have seen the new SUV in the flesh, I am becoming even more impressed with the direction the automaker is moving in.

The model being shown is not the production version but is apparently close to it. It is described as a ‘medium size SUV’ but it seems more full size. With three full row, it is big but it’s also luxurious and seems to pack the kind of punch we have come to expect from a Lincoln.

2019 Lincoln Aviator
The 2019 Lincoln Aviator is a good looking vehicle. It shares many design cues from the Navigator but on a smaller chassis. It has a rounded front end with quite a lot of detailing, a big grille, angled lights and complicated-looking lower sill. The profile flows smoothly up the hood and down the sides, along a slightly sloped roof to a fairly uncomplicated rear.

The profile is reminiscent of the Navigator too, with modest panel detailing, high ground clearance and a large set of nice alloy wheels to set it off.

Inside the 2019 Lincoln Aviator, you get all the luxury and soft touch materials you might expect. While this is technically a concept, there was nothing there that couldn’t be produced now, including a new smartphone key system where you use your phone as the key to open and start the car.

Technology is at the forefront of the 2019 Lincoln Aviator. As well as the neat key system, the Aviator will also have a suspension preview setting that will use forward cameras to assess the road condition and dynamically adjust suspension for maximum comfort. It will also feature the new Co-Pilot360 system which includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping, cross-traffic alert and blind spot detection.

The 2019 Lincoln Aviator will come with some kind of EcoBoost twin turbo engine and a plugin hybrid variant. Both engines will be available at launch and across the trim range.

As this was an auto show model, exact details of trims, engines, features and price were unavailable. As far as we can tell, this model was fairly representative of what we can expect at launch. With no news on dates or when we will get to learn more about this SUV, we are going to have to wait a while to learn more I think.

In the meantime, the current range of Lincoln vehicles is still something quite special. Check them out at Northway Ford Lincoln, 388 King George Road Brantford ON N3S 3N2.
