The all-new 2020 Lincoln Aviator sports advanced technologies that let the luxury SUV kneel to greet the driver, scan the road ahead for uneven pavement, and allow access via smartphone instead of a key.

Lincoln Aviator will be available globally, entering the highest volume segment in the U.S. and Canada, the midsize luxury market, and the third-highest volume segment in China.

Also debuting is the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring, named for its gliding power and effortless performance. This marks the first time the company has combined a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine and advanced electrified hybrid technology capable of delivering smooth performance and instantaneous torque.

Right from the start, its suspension system automatically lowers the vehicle to “greet” the driver. This feature makes loading cargo easier. Lincoln’s "Phone As A Key" technology, debuting in the all-new Aviator, is activated through the Lincoln Way app. It allows owners to lock and unlock, open the liftgate and, most importantly, start and drive the vehicle – all without a traditional key.

Aviator offers standard all-wheel drive and a choice of gas or hybrid powertrain. The standard twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine, paired with a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, is expected to deliver 400 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.

With the hybrid option, Aviator Grand Touring’s twin-turbocharged engine and advanced electrified technology are projected to produce 450 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque.
