2021 Lincoln Aviator Outsells It's Rivals

2021 Lincoln Aviator Outsells It's Rivals

Recent sales figures for the 2021 Lincoln Aviator shows it selling increasingly well both in Canada and the US. So much so that it outsold many of its rivals, including those from Cadillac and Infiniti.


The data, over at Ford Authority shows Lincoln Aviator sales up 13% in the US for Q4 2020 and up across the board elsewhere for the same time period.


We expect that good news for Lincoln to continue through this year too!


2021 Lincoln Aviator


I like the 2021 Lincoln Aviator. It’s a more relaxed SUV that isn’t trying so desperately to outsell the German competition and it’s all the better for it. The design is modern and composed, the interior luxurious and cossetting and the entire package is nice to be around.


Plus, it’s so much nicer when it has a name and not a designation!


The Lincoln Aviator is based on the Ford Explorer but is more luxurious and better looking in my opinion. This year sees new colours, new wheels, a new Monochromatic Reserve appearance package and a new panoramic sunroof.


Design and build


The exterior of the Lincoln Aviator is rounded and very modern. A relaxed front end has a big grille and lighting with rounded edges, smooth panels and an unfussy design that seems very mature. Chrome and LED lighting abound but don’t detract from the overall appeal.


A slightly sloping roof doesn’t compromise interior space while a fluted detail in both doors adds interest. The rear is a tidy mix of rounded edges, smart design and nice lighting.


Inside, the cabin is very much a smaller Navigator. It’s well put together, has lovely soft touch materials, tidy stitching and an ambience that just makes you want to sit back and relax.


Head and leg room is generous, technology is everywhere and the front adjustable seats means you will eventually find the perfect perch.


Engine and mechanicals


The Lincoln Aviator uses a smooth 3.0-litre twin turbocharged V6 engine that delivers 400 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. While the Aviator is a big car, the engine and transmission are more than enough to power it along whatever the road conditions.


It uses Ford’s 10 speed automatic transmission to put that power down. It’s a fantastic unit with smooth shifting and an almost effortless journey through the range. AWD is an option.


There is a mild hybrid option too. It uses the same engine and a 75kW electric motor with 13.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Combined output is 494 hp and 630 lb-ft.


The Aviator comes with active lane control, blind-spot monitors and automatic high beams as standard. You can also get front parking sensors, surround-view camera, heads-up display and automatic park assist.


That’s enough for a five star safety rating and Top Safety Pick from the US IIHS.


If you’re in the market for a comfortably luxury SUV but don’t want to buy the same as everyone else, the Lincoln Aviator is an excellent choice. It’s comfortable, quiet and safe. All the things we look for in a new car!
