Overview

What's New

The 2022 Lincoln Aviator enters its third model year virtually unchanged. The Aviator is positioned between Lincoln's two-row Nautilus crossover and the full-size Navigator SUV.

Choosing Your Lincoln Aviator

The Aviator is offered in five trims: Standard, Reserve, Grand Touring, Black Label, and Black Label Grand Touring. Pricing starts at $52,560 including destination and climbs to $89,000 for the Black Label Grand Touring.

Engine Choices

The Standard, Reserve, and Black Label trims are powered by a twin-turbo V6 engine. The Grand Touring models get a plug-in hybrid setup consisting of the gas V6 and a 75-kW electric motor.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
3.0L Twin-Turbo V6400 hp415 lb-ft21 mpg
3.0L Twin-Turbo V6 Plug-In Hybrid494 hp630 lb-ft23 mpg

All-wheel drive is standard on the hybrid-powered Grand Touring models, which can travel up to 21 miles on electricity alone. AWD is also standard on Black Label trims. The Standard and Reserve start out with rear-wheel drive, and AWD can be added for $2,530. All models use a 10-speed automatic transmission.

With the gas V6, the Aviator can tow up to 6,700 pounds. Capacity dips to 5,600 pounds on the Grand Towing trims.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Aviator is a midsize, three-row crossover with room for seven in Standard trim. The other trims feature a second-row captain's chair for six-passenger capacity.

With all rows occupied, cargo space registers at 18.5 cubic feet. Folding the third row opens up 41.8 cubic feet. With both rear rows down, the Aviator can handle up 77.7 cubic feet, which is typical for a vehicle of this size.

Safety Features

Every Aviator comes equipped with Lincoln Co-Pilot360, which includes: lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, front and rear parking sensors, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. The Reserve and above also carry a surround-view camera system with front and rear washers.

Optional on the Reserve and Grand Touring is Co-Pilot360 Plus ($2,500), which adds adaptive cruise control, evasive steering assist, an automated parking system, and reserve automatic braking. This bundle is standard on Black Label trims.

Connectivity

The Standard trim offers a 10.1-inch touchscreen, 10 speakers, four USB ports, satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Navigation is a $500 standalone. The nav system is standard on the Reserve and Grand Touring, along with wireless device charging and a 14-speaker Revel sound system with an HD radio. A 28-speaker Revel system is available on Reserve and Grand Touring as part of the $3,300 Luxury Package — and standard on the Black Label trims.

The Aviator starts out with synthetic leather upholstery, heated 10-way power front seats with driver memory, aluminum interior trim, a power-folding third row, a 12.3-inch digital instrument display, proximity key access, automatic wipers, and a power liftgate. The exterior receives LED headlights and taillights, aluminum roof rails, power-folding side mirrors, and 19-inch wheels.

The $1,000 Elements Package adds a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, and heated wiper blades. The Premium Package ($1,500) tops things off with a panoramic sunroof and 20-inch wheels.

Aviator Reserve — MSRP From $58,450

The Reserves gets genuine leather seats with 12-way power in front, four-zone climate control, a hands-free power liftgate, second-row captain's chairs, LED fog lights, wood interior trim, ambient interior lighting, and 20-inch wheels. The Premium Package is also standard. The Elements Package Plus ($1,450) adds automatically heated and ventilated front seats, heated and ventilated second-row seats, a cabin air purifier, and the heated steering wheel and wiper blades.

The Reserve I Package ($6,380) contains the Elements Package Plus and Co-Pilot 360 Plus, along with a head-up display and technology that allows the owner's smartphone to function as a key fob. Beyond that, buyers can add the $3,300 Luxury Package with 30-way massing front seats, the 28-speaker Revel system, and rear door sunshades. There's also a Dynamic Handling Package ($2,400) that adds an adaptive air suspension that scans the road ahead and adjusts accordingly.

For the outside, Lincoln offers an Illumination Package ($2,100) with speed-sensitive adaptive front lighting and an illuminated grille emblem. The $2,000 Monochromatic Package, exclusive to the Reserve, furnishes 22-inch black wheels and body-color trim.

Aviator Grand Touring — MSRP From $69,455

The Grand Touring adopts the hybrid power plant and standard AWD. Other equipment and options are shared with the Reserve, except the Grand Touring which rides on 21-inch wheels.

Aviator Black Label — MSRP From $80,445

The Black Label reverts to the gas engine but keeps the standard AWD. Exclusive features include 22-inch bright wheels and the buyer's choice of interior design themes: Chalet, Flight, and Destination. Nearly everything available on the preceding trims is standard. Only the Dynamic Handling Package remains optional. Owners receive complimentary maintenance and priority service from Lincoln dealers.

Aviator Grand Touring Black Label — MSRP $89,000

The ultimate Aviator combines the hybrid powertrain with the Black Label treatment. For added distinction, the Dynamic Handling Package is standard.

CarsDirect Tip

The Standard trim offers a lot of luxury crossover for the money, but the lack of genuine leather seats is a non-starter for many buyers shopping in this class. We prefer the Reserve or Grand Touring, which can be scaled to meet some pretty demanding tastes. The Black Label models are worth it for buyers in search of ultra-fine interior appointments.

Return to form. The 2022 Lincoln Aviator is a pint-sized Navigator in the best way possible. While the SUV has plenty of power, it puts comfort and smoothness above all else. If that sounds familiar, it’s almost like Lincoln returned to its glory days, but in SUV form.

With sumptuous interior materials and a stylish design, the Aviator looks nothing like the Ford Explorer that it’s based on. Lincoln’s done a great job with sound deadening and engineering the Aviator to remain quiet at highway speeds, resulting in a hushed cabin that lets passengers enjoy the ride. Speaking of the ride, the Aviator’s cushy ride absorbs bumps incredibly well, further increasing the SUV’s comfort.

While the Aviator has three rows of seating, the third row is cramped and best left for kids. There is some good news, as the first two rows of seats are spectacularly comfortable. The front seats are available with 30-way adjustments and the available second-row captain’s chairs are just as cozy as the front seats. Available features like heated and ventilated front- and second-row seats, massaging front seats, and excellent audio systems also help the Aviator feel like a true luxury vehicle that can compete with Europe’s finest.

Stick with the V6. Lincoln offers the Aviator with two engines, one of which is a nifty plug-in hybrid. The standard engine isn’t a pushover, offering 400 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. Available with either rear- or all-wheel drive and a 10-speed automatic transmission, the standard V6 operates effortlessly. When pushed hard, the V6 engine can get noisy.

Grand Touring trims come with a plug-in hybrid powertrain that consists of the same twin-turbo engine but adds an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack for 494 hp. The plug-in hybrid powertrain adds extra weight, which slows shifts. In its all-electric mode, the plug-in hybrid powertrain offers up to 21 miles of range.

While it’s nice to see Lincoln offer the Aviator with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, we think that most consumers will prefer the standard engine. The plug-in hybrid is a $16,895 upgrade over the standard turbocharged engine and isn’t worth the cost unless you’re able to take full advantage of the 21-mile all-electric range.

Lincoln Aviator

Packed with tech. In addition to being a cushy, comfortable luxury vehicle, the Aviator comes loaded with technology. The SUV’s list of standard equipment includes a 10.1-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, navigation, and four USB ports.

Anyone would be happy with the Aviator’s standard list of features, but higher trims add more upscale amenities. Moving up the ladder opens the door to a wireless charging pad, a head-up display, a rear entertainment system, and a 28-speaker Revel audio system that fills the cabin with rich sound.

The Aviator’s list of safety features is just as impressive. Only a handful of safety features are optional, including adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, rear collision warning, hands-free park assist, and a surround-view camera. Other than that, every other modern feature is standard. A lot of the SUV’s standard safety features are part of the Co-Pilot360 suite.

One of our favorite tech features with the Aviator is the available smartphone app that lets owners remotely lock and unlock their SUV. It comes incredibly handy when you don’t remember if you locked the vehicle and also reminds you about upcoming services and other vehicle parameters.

Stylish without going overboard. One of the Aviator’s best qualities is just how gorgeous it is. The SUV doesn’t look to the past for retro cues or attempt to be an overly futuristic SUV. Instead, it’s simple, with straightforward and clean lines. The exterior design wows you, while the interior design keeps you hooked.

While the Aviator’s starting price of $52,560 (with destination) is average for the segment, higher trim levels turn the SUV into a pricey luxury vehicle. The range-topping Black Label models are downright expensive for what you get, starting at $80,445 and going up to $89,000 for the Black Label Grand Touring. While these trims feel extravagant, they have the price tags to match.

Final thoughts. Lincoln was going through a rough patch a few years ago but is back in full swing by doing what it does best, focusing on luxury and comfort. The 2022 Lincoln Aviator channels Lincoln’s best vehicle — the Navigator — to help the brand enter a new era. With an upscale cabin, powerful engines, impressive tech features, and a lavish cabin, the Aviator feels every bit as luxurious as its competitors.

The Genesis GV80 is a standout option in the class. It’s an excellent value option, has an opulent interior, comes with high-tech features, and is a serious flagship SUV. For consumers looking for a safe SUV, there’s the Volvo XC90. It’s packed with safety features, has an upscale cabin, is available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, and is also a comfort-forward option.
