  • Powerful twin-turbo V6 engine
  • Comfortable, quiet ride
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Expensive for a plug-in hybrid


The Lincoln Aviator is a perfect example of Lincoln's new direction. The Grand Touring pairs the Aviator's 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine with a 75-kilowatt (100 horsepower) electric motor. The plug-in hybrid can recharge its battery pack in about 3 to 4 hours at a 240-volt, Level 2 charging station.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
Lincoln's first twin-turbocharged plug-in hybrid V6 promises to raise the bar for the brand. The Aviator Grand Touring features the same 10-speed automatic transmission as the non-hybrid. The battery adds an extra 781 pounds of mass to the Aviator's curb weight.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The Aviator's 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 provides 400 of 'em. With all three rows in their upright and locked position, this vehicle offers more than 18 cubic feet of luggage space. Handling is buttoned down, though, regrettably, the steering is devoid of feel.

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is a three-row midsize luxury SUV, aimed at vehicles like the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90. The Aviator name was first used by Lincoln in the early 2000s on a rebadged version of the Ford Explorer. The interior imports some of the more distinctive features from the big-brother Lincoln Navigator.
