The Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring is a three-row luxury SUV that shares a platform with the Ford Explorer. It’s powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbo engine that provides effortless thrust.
A plug-in hybrid is also available, but it prioritizes power over outright fuel economy. Handling is remarkably agile for such a large vehicle, the ride is comfortable, and the cabin stays hushed.
The Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring interior is lavishly furnished with chrome, wood, and leather, and the seats are plush and supportive. However, some controls are unintuitive, such as the push-button gear selector and electronic door latches.
The large infotainment screen responds quickly and is easy to use. The second-row seat is roomy, but the third row is tight.
Lincoln’s standard Co-Pilot360 safety suite includes FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, and rear cross traffic warning.
