This automobile changes everything, it is phenomenal in so many ways. The 2012 Lincoln Aviator is the perfect middle ground between a crossover SUV and large SUVs such as Expeditions, Suburbans, or Navigators. The Aviator has three rows of seats, offering more practicality than crossover SUVs which feature 2 rows of seats. I do like crossover SUVs but other than being higher off the ground than their sedans relatives, they don’t offer much. The 2020 Aviator comes with a regular and a hybrid model option. The SUV starts at 51,100USD.
The specifications are what attracts me to this vehicle so much, this car features the perfect mix between power and practicality. In the standard model, HP is 400 with 415 ft torque. In the hybrid model, the HP is 450+ with an astounding 600 + ft torque. Both the hybrid and standard models come with a 3.0L twin-turbo v-6 engine, making 20 combined(HWY & City)epa mileage. The Aviator is offered in RWD and AWD, with AWD increasing the price tag by a couple thousand.
Safety & Security
All the industry standard safety features are included in the Aviator. Including : front seat mounted side-impact airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, seatbelt alarm for every seat(not sure if this is a pro or a con haha), SOS- post crash alert system, rear view camera with washer, dual stage front airbags, side curtain airbags, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency breaking, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and more. Safety includes: Perimeter alarm, child lock doors, anti theft systems and more.
Features standard in all models include, but are not limited to: 10.1 inch LCD infotainment system, 360-degree camera, blind spot detection, push start, 110V power outlet, remote start, quad-zone climate control, lockable glovebox, particulate air-filtration system, ambient lighting, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and many more.
This vehicle does not drive its size, meaning it feels much smaller and more maneuverable than it is. The power, handling, and comfort of this vehicle really make for one nice drive. Models come with the Standard, Reserve, Grand Touring, and Black Label. The Standard starts at 51,100 and the Black Label is a whopping 77,695. Go test drive one for yourself if you are in the market for a SUV, you won’t be disappointed.
