2020 Lincoln Aviator - Driven

2020 Lincoln Aviator - Driven

A new, heavyweight contender in the midsize luxury SUV segement!

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.

2021 Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring Picture Gallery

2021 Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring Picture Gallery

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

2020 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition

This is a special edition model done right

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.

2019 Lincoln MKC - Driven

2019 Lincoln MKC - Driven

A domestic alternative to luxury crossovers

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.

The Lincoln Zephyr Could be a Rear-Wheel-Drive Replacement for the Lincoln MKZ

The Lincoln Zephyr Could be a Rear-Wheel-Drive Replacement for the Lincoln MKZ

But could it actually be a coupe based on the Ford Mustang

Lincoln’s switch from alphanumeric nameplates to actual names could bring back the iconic Zephyr name in a couple of years. The badge is rumored to return in 2021 and word has it we could see it on the next-generation MKZ.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

The young blood returns with a clear target in mind

After a very short run in the early 2000s, Lincoln has finally brought back the Aviator nameplate. This time, the Aviator is ready to kick ass and take names, and its sights are set squarely on Mercedes, BMW, and Audi. Luscious on the inside yet powerful and commanding at the same time – that’s the exact recipe that makes the new Aviator. Under the hood sits a powertrain that can pump out as much as 400 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque (in hybrid form) while the exterior gives off a sleek, dominating aura that signifies the first step taken to bring Lincoln back to level ground and secure its relevance on the market once again. The Aviator has a long, hard fight ahead of it, at least until its backup in the form of the 2020 Lincoln Continental arrives. Until then, we thought we’d give the Aviator a little motivation by making it our wallpaper of the day. We’re displaying our favorite here but have included a number of other choices for you in the gallery below.

Lincoln Set to Rename The MKC

Lincoln Set to Rename The MKC

Will the new moniker change the slow-selling fortunes as well?

There have been quite a few instances where the buried nomenclatures have been resurrected to remind people of the goodwill that the name carried. Now, Lincoln has planned to change the name of the Lincoln MKC for the 2021 model. It will then be known as the Corsair going forward. Will that help increase the sales figures?

Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

There’s no denying that Lincoln jumped ship a little too early when it came to the original Aviator. It was introduced for 2003 and discontinued in 2005, just shy of when SUVs really started to gain momentum. It took a long time, but Lincoln finally came to its senses and brought a production-ready preview of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator to the New York Auto Show. It’s slated to sit between the Nautilus and the Navigator and will likely be a replacement for the MKT, but what’s more important is that it looks damn good. So good, in fact, that we decided to make the preview vehicle our wallpaper of the day. It’s the first time we’ve put a concept or prototype in this position, but we can’t seem to get over how good it looks. As always, we’ve hand-picked our favorite and thrown together a full gallery that’s free for the taking.

Despite Ford's Execution of Sedans, Lincoln Says That it Remains Committed

Despite Ford’s Execution of Sedans, Lincoln Says That it Remains Committed

Should Ford have continued with their sedans and scrapped the Lincoln twins instead?

There is a lot of discussion surrounding the extinction of sedans. Ford has already killed them in North America due to dwindling demands, but Lincoln will keep the ’traditional cars’ running. A spokesperson from Ford has said that Lincoln will remain committed to producing sedans. We are not sure what the rationale behind this is, as the response has not been great for the Lincoln sedans; with MKZ sales falling 34.4-percent and the Continental going down by 25.1-percent in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2018 alone.

Your smartphone is also your car key

The hype train carrying the Lincoln Aviator is real, folks. The luxury automaker’s first plug-in hybrid SUV has officially reached its destination at the New York Auto Show, and as expected, it’s packing a serious amount of technology we normally don’t see on any of Ford’s other brands. Off the bat, we found out that the Aviator will carry technological bells-and-whistles like pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, and Ford’s new driver-assist system. But the feature that really has us intrigued is the automaker’s “Phone as Key” technology.

Is the Lincoln Aviator "mightier" than the McLaren P1 or a Lamborghini Huracan? Lincoln Thinks So

To see is to believe, Lincoln. To see is to believe

When was the last the words “Lincoln” and “supercar” were mentioned in the same sentence? 50 years ago? Never? In any case, Lincoln just swung for the fences with what could possibly be the boldest statement to come out of the 2018 New York Auto Show.America’s once-proud luxury brand is all set to unveil the Aviator SUV, and while that itself is reason enough to get excited, the automaker added fuel to the fire, describing the capabilities of its plug-in hybrid system as “mightier than many supercars on the road today.”

2019 Lincoln Nautilus

2019 Lincoln Nautilus

Adds new face, four-cylinder engine, and 8-speed auto to the MKX

Introduced in 2006 as a replacement for the Aviator, the Lincoln MKX soldiered on for almost a decade until it was redesigned in 2015. After only two years on the market, the second-generation MKX received its mid-cycle facelift. Launched at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, the midsize crossover was renamed the Nautilus, as part of the company’s new strategy that involves dropping alphanumeric badges. Alongside the new name, the crossover also gained an updated front fascia, now inline with most Lincoln vehicles, new technology, and a new engine under the hood.

Lincoln’s decision to rename the MKX isn’t surprising. The midsize is the firm’s best-selling SUV and a vehicle that attracts most new customers from other brands, with nearly 40 percent reportedly crossing over from Cadillac and Lexus. The Nautilus is supposed to build on the momentum of the MKX, which is on track to deliver its best sales year since 2007. But does it have what it takes to give the Cadillac XT5 a run for its money? Find out in the review below.

Lincoln Updates MKX at L.A. Auto Show, Renames it Nautilus

New eight-speed auto transmission added too

In 2015, Lincoln confirmed that it’s reviving the Continental name and a production car was unveiled in 2016. Since then, we haven’t heard much about Ford’s premium division, which speaks volumes of how irrelevant Lincoln is nowadays. But the luxury brand is trying really hard to fix that by pushing forward a new naming strategy that involves dropping alphanumeric badges. And even though the facelifted MKC kept its name, the revised MKX was launched at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show as the Nautilus.

Leaked Images Confirm that Lincoln Nautilus will Replace Lincoln MKX

It’s penciled in to debut at the L.A. Auto Show

Lincoln has revealed its L.A. Auto Show-bound mystery vehicle, and it’s called the Lincoln Nautilus. It has a new name and a new design, but the Nautilus isn’t exactly an all-new model, but rather an updated version of the MKX SUV. Beyond the decision to drop the MK nomenclature on the SUV, the Nautilus is different in a lot of ways compared to its predecessor. It features a more modern design, prominently shown by the adoption of the Continental’s front grille. Those who didn’t approve of the MKX’s split front end look finally got their wish. Apart from the grille, the Nautilus also gets a good number of new design features, including smaller headlights and a more traditional front bumper layout.
