New Lincoln Aviator unites luxury, comfort and high technology

The new Lincoln Aviator 2020 was officially presented by Ford during the Los Angeles Show, consolidating even more the idea of ​​renewing its luxury brand. The three-row seat vehicle features features ranging from the design, engines and technologies unprecedented in the segment, such as the function that allows opening and starting the vehicle by a mobile application, to cabin alerts created by a symphony orchestra.

The model offers the option of four-wheel drive and gasoline or hybrid engine. Its 3.0-liter V6 engine with two turbochargers generates no less than 400 horsepower and 55.3 kgfm of torque, with SelectShift’s 10-speed automatic transmission to accelerate effortlessly.

“The Aviator represents the best of Lincoln’s DNA and indicates the direction of the brand in the future with elegance, effortless performance and unmatched comfort,” says Joy Falotico, president of The Lincoln Motor Company.

Among other refinements, the Lincoln Aviator has a suspension system that automatically lowers the vehicle to welcome the driver, along with signature lighting. Its new “Phone As Key” technology allows you to lock and unlock the doors, open the trunk and start the vehicle with an application on the smartphone, without the traditional key, and memorize the settings of the seats, mirrors, steering column and sound. With the feature it is possible to generate up to four “keys” for other people to use the car. If the phone runs out of battery power, it is also possible to open and start the vehicle using passwords.

Another new technology of the Lincoln Aviator is the adaptive suspension with a camera that constantly scans the lane and allows you to “see” holes and irregularities on the road, instantly adjusting the suspension to ensure smooth running.

In the cockpit, the Aviator’s design aims to create a sanctuary of tranquility. The front seats have electric adjustment in 30 directions and massage function. The Revel Ultima 3D audio system, with 28 speakers, recreates the sound experience of a concert hall. And its about 25 sound warnings were created especially by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Jennifer Prescott, Lincoln’s vehicle harmony supervisor, evaluated over 125 sound options with her team before passing the final selection to the musicians. “I really think they thought I was crazy,” she recalls, laughing. “But we wanted to make sure every detail of that car was perfect.”
