Luxury SUVs provide a great mix of driving power, class and a plethora of features that make them incredibly fun to drive, Lincoln is releasing a new version of its Aviator that shall be available at some point in 2019, so far they have unveiled this classy looking SUV at the New York International Auto Show of 2018. The all new Aviator has a number of notable features that makes it’s a fascinating entry to Lincoln’s collection of mid-sized luxury SUVs.
The latest model of the Aviator will feature a rear wheel drive platform that will not only make its handling more dynamic, but also allow Lincoln to compete with other luxury brands such as BMW with greater confidence. Having a rear wheel drive will also give the new Aviator a more premium feel and give it an advantage over premium brands that are still sticking to front wheel drives.
It will also feature a twin turbocharged engine along with a plug-in hybrid option that will basically give the Aviator much more power compared to the rest of its competition. While having both of these features in one vehicle will definitely make the price tag soar, it will also make the Aviator a very high end vehicle.
The Aviator previously allowed owners to access the car with their smartphone, and now the latest version of the car will also offer the ability to start the car with your phone. You will no longer need to carry the car’s key with you in order to start it, and should your phone run out of battery, an exterior keypad will act as a backup.
Lincoln shall also be introducing the Lincoln Suspension Preview Technology which will use a front facing camera to scan the road and adjust the vehicle’s suspension to absorb shocks and shakes caused by any uneven surfaces. This feature will make driving the new Aviator significantly more comfortable.
The new Aviator is also going to come loaded with a number of technological features that will assist the driver in handling the vehicle. Features such as automated emergency brakes, pedestrian detection and blind spot detection will all be provided in the Lincoln Co-Pilot360.
Another interesting use of innovative technology in the Lincoln Aviator will be its considerate prompts that will provide drivers with suggestions on where to go depending on various factors. For example, should the car be low on fuel, the infotainment panel will be updated with routes to nearby gas stations from where the car can be refuelled.
The foldable third row in the new Aviator will supposedly have enough space to comfortably seat an adult who is six feet tall, which is pretty impressive since many SUVs fail to provide ample sitting space in their third row. Overall, the Lincoln Aviator hold a lot of promise and has everyone anxiously waiting for the day when this classy looking SUV will grace the road with its presence.
