2020 Lincoln Aviator - Driven
The Aviator name was revived back in 2019 as a replacement for the Lincoln MKT. Ever since, we’ve been dying to get our hands on one to see just how well it actually represents Lincoln as a brand and if it can actually handle the stiff competition in the premium SUV segment. Well, our requests were finally answered and a Lincoln Aviator showed up at TopSpeed HQ with full tank of gas and the paperwork that said we could drive it for a week. And, drive it we did.
Any negative preconceptions we had about the Lincoln brand or the Aviator in general were axed the second we stepped inside. The cabin, for the most part, feels highly premium and the layout was very spacious. We didn’t have the hybrid model, so all our power came from the 3.0-liter V-6 that was good for 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque, two figures that proved themselves to be more than enough for a vehicle this caliber.
We were equally impressed with the amount of available cargo room (up to 77.t cubic-feet with all the seats folder flat, and the technology inside felt really upscale compared to what we expected based on previous experience with Lincoln models. Our model started out at $51,100, but our tester was fitted with a couple of options that made it a little more expensive. We’re busy putting together an in-depth buyer’s guide for this very vehicle, so until then check out the full, high-resolution photo gallery that we’ve added to the slider above or the body of the page below.
We know that you’ve probably seen the Corsair before – it was released earlier this year, but new for 2020 is the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring. This Corsair itself is aimed at the younger crowd that don’t need three rows of seating and desire a little more space and now the Grand Touring trim steps in to provide even better fuel economy for those that are more green conscious.
It might not be quite as powerful as the non-hybrid, but the 2.5-liter gasoline engine and two electric motors are said to produce somewhere in the neighborhood of 266 horsepower and Lincoln is “anticipating” a range of 25 miles. AWD also comes courtesy of the electric motors as they exclusively power the rear wheels while the engine handles the duty of driving the front wheels.
In terms of appearance, the Corsair Grand Touring doesn’t stand out my way of any real unique aestetic features, so aside from the exterior badges and the ability to drive silently for a limited period of time, there’s not much else to report. However, we’ve created a full gallery and organized it into our awesome slider above and the article below. Go ahead and browse through the images to learn more about the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring.
2020 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition
Turns out, Lexus isn’t the only one that’s into revising recently released special edition models. Lincoln’s adopting a similar strategy with the return of the Continental Coach Door Edition, a blast-from-the-past special edition Continental that the luxury brand first launched last year in very limited — only 80 units were made — quantities.
This time, Lincoln is doubling up with 150 units of the 2020 Continental Coach Door Edition. The essential elements that defined last year’s Coach Door Edition will also be offered in this fresh batch of SEs. That includes the model’s undisputed highlight: the suicide doors.
The Ford-owned luxury brand is already accepting orders for the 2020 Continental Coach Door Edition. Best be quick about it because, judging by how fast the first batch of Coach Door Edition models sold out, this new batch of 150 units will sell out just as quick, maybe even quicker.
One could argue that Lincoln dropped the ball when it discontinued the original aviator back in 2005, just a couple of years after it was introduced to the market. If the bean counters knew then what they know now, we wouldn’t be as hyped up about the Aviator but SUVs weren’t nearly as attractive back then, and Lincoln jumped off the bandwagon when it should have remained. Be that as it may, the Aviator is back for the 2020 model year, and it brings a gorgeous design, exquisite interior materials and layout, and some high-end tech. It’s also there to give us entry to a larger Lincoln SUV without having to opt for the high-priced Navigator that’s all so often a little out of range for a lot of buyers. It’s look, however, is what really has us mesmerized – along with the fact that it changed little from concept to prototype to production model. So, we saw it fitting to pay it tribute and feature it as our wallpaper of the day. We’ve picked out our favorite and placed it below, but if you scroll a little further down, you’ll find a whole gallery of images that are just perfect for sprucing up your desktop.
2020 Lincoln Aviator
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is a midsize luxury SUV unveiled in 2019 as a replacement for the aging Lincoln MKT. First introduced for the 2003 model year, the Lincoln Aviator was initially offered as a luxury sport utility vehicle for the mid-size segment. After failing to meet sales expectations, Lincoln axed the nameplate in 2005 after just a few years in production. Now, however, as nationwide SUV sales continue onwards into the stratosphere, the Aviator makes its triumphant second-generation return for the 2020 model year, slotting in between the Nautilus and the standard wheelbase Navigator in Lincoln’s lineup. The latest model offers elegant styling, a top-notch interior layout, oodles of comfort, the latest tech, and a super torquey hybrid engine option.
Update 8/17/2019: We’ve updated this review with information about the Lincoln Aviator’s hybrid drivetrain and new pricing information. Check out everything in our review below!
The Lincoln Aviator Hybrid Is More Powerful than the Chevrolet C8 Corvette
Revived in 2019 as a successor for the MKT, the Lincoln Aviator is the company’s first SUV to feature a hybrid drivetrain. In 2018, Lincoln revealed preliminary specs for the hybrid, hinting that it will top the range in terms of output. Come August 2019 and the final numbers confirm that the Aviator Hybrid is one of the most powerful gas-electric vehicles on the market.
2019 Lincoln MKC - Driven
Lincoln has updated the MKC crossover for the 2019 model year, and with this refresh, the manufacturer aims to make its smallest SUV more attractive among the many talented rivals in its segment. The pre-facelift MKC was already pretty good, although not perfect, but now Lincoln says there is even more to like about it.
We tried the top of the range, The 2019 Lincoln MKC “Black Label”, with the more powerful of the two available engines, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo. In this spec, the MKC doesn’t leave you wanting for power, presence, or luxury, but at the same time it’s not perfect and we understand why these aren’t flying out of showrooms.
It is by no means a bad way to spend around $50,000 on a posh compact SUV that also happens to be made by an American brand. In the configuration we tested it in, it’s actually quite pleasant to live with - it’s even fun on occasion, especially with the 2.3-liter engine that comes as standard with grippy all-wheel drive.
Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Lincoln Corsair
Lincoln had to replace the old MKC with something, and this is it – the Lincoln Corsair. It’s the brand’s smallest SUV offering, and it’s based on the Ford Escape. As a matter of fact, it’s really nothing more than a rebadged, glorified Escape but that’s a conversation for another time. The name, however, holds some significance as it was used way back in the late ‘50s under the Edsel brand name. At this point, the name probably has a much better chance of surviving in the long term, and it’s the look you see here that’s going to give it the extra grunt it needs to make a damaging blow to the compact premium crossover segment. Since we like the look of the Corsair so much, we decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. Slide on down the page to see our favorite choice or go a little further to find a gallery with more great wallpaper options.
2020 Lincoln Corsair
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair is a compact crossover and the company’s smallest SUV yet. The Corsair replaces the MKC, a crossover sold between 2014 and 2019 and also based on the Ford Escape. Unveiled at the 2019 New York Auto Show, the Corsair revived a nameplate that Ford used for the first time in 1958 for the Edsel brand. The Corsair is the third new nameplate introduced by Lincoln in the last two years following a decision to phase out its alphanumerical naming scheme.
Just like the MKC, the Corsair is based on the Ford Escape. But while the MKC was built on the old platform, the Corsair shares underpinnings with the fourth-generation, 2020 Ford Escape, also unveiled at the 2019 New York Auto Show. The redesign brings new technology and features as well as revised four-cylinder engines and eight-speed automatic transmission.
