2020 Lincoln Aviator

2020 Lincoln Aviator Reserve

Consumer Guide Automotive

Seems that Lincoln – once synonymous with luxury cars – is putting lots more focus on its luxury crossovers.

Lincoln has been completely redesigning its slate of SUVs of late, starting with the all-new full-size Navigator for 2018, followed by an update of the midsize MKX that was renamed Nautilus for 2019. Next came the midsize, 3-row Aviator – the subject of this report – which just went on sale as a 2020 model, soon to be joined by the new 2020 Corsair (based on the redesigned 2020 Ford Escape), which is the replacement for the compact MKC.

Got all that?

Used Luxury Car Deals

As crossover SUVs gain in popularity, used sedans have become something of a bargain. Shoppers can find some particularly compelling deals on luxury sedans, a number of which have dropped significantly in resale value.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with sedans. The most popular automotive body type of all time, the humble sedan has for years served the American buying public with a sort of quiet reserve and dignity. Residing in the space between the utilitarian station wagon and the flashy, indulgent coupe, the sedan has, for decades, outsold all other passenger-vehicle types.

Ford is Killing the Taurus, Ford Killing Sedans

Taurus is one of the models Ford is planning to phase out.

To truly excite the passions of the American automotive media, you need news that strikes close to home. International news, no matter how significant, is generally met with indifference among many U.S. auto writers. General Motors Chairman and CEO Mary Barra and the GM board of directors opt out of the European, Indian, and South African new-vehicle markets—yawn. The Chinese government mandates that 12 percent of new vehicles retailed in China (the world’s largest new-car market) must be pure electric by 2020—whatever.

What is EcoBoost?

The high-performance Taurus SHO was one of the first Ford vehicles to employ an EcoBoost engine.

There is a lot to be said for good automotive branding, especially good engine branding. One of the better recent efforts in this regard is Chrysler’s resurrection of the Hemi name, as applied to a new family of V8 engines that debuted for 2003.
