5 reasons to buy the 2021 Lincoln Aviator

1. Upscale interior

This might actually be an understatement, but the interior of the 2021 Aviator is absolutely gorgeous. There is an impressive mix of luxury materials throughout, and even the base Aviator has a choice of Ebony or Sandstone (beige) upholstery paired with "Linear Brushed Aluminum" accents. On higher trims, there are a great variety of wood tones that make for a very classy driving experience. Your passengers will be quite impressed with your Aviator.

2. The latest tech

It's one thing to have Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto compatibility—and naturally, the 2021 Aviator does—but there is a whole lot more. All trim levels include a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen and a 12.3-inch driver display, so you'll have all the critical information at your fingertips. Navigation is included on everything but the base trim, and a cool 360-degree parking camera system is also available. It also has a full suite of standard and available Co-Pilot360 driver aids at the ready, depending on the trim you choose.

3. Power to spare

While it's not hard to be satisfied with the base 2021 Aviator's standard engine, a twin-turbocharged 3L V6 producing 400 hp, there's more. Those looking for more power, a lot more power, should take a look at the Aviator Grand Touring. It takes the standard V6 and pairs it with a 13.6-kWh battery and 75-kW motor for a massive combined output of 494 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque. Oh, and it's a plug-in hybrid, so it has an EPA-estimated 56 MPGe combined.

4. Space for the family

While it can act as a sanctuary to get away from it all, the aviator is also very practical for day-to-day family use. Three rows of seating provide room for up to eight family members and friends. You'll get 18.3 cu-ft with all three rows of seats in place, or you can find up to 41.8 cu-ft by folding the third row and get a maximum capacity of 77.7 cu-ft with the back two rows folded. That will make quick work of a trip to the big game or the big home improvement store.

5. Trim level variety

The 2021 Lincoln Aviator comes in five trim levels including the base standard version, as well as optional trims including Reserve, Black Label, Grand Touring, and Grand Touring Black Label. As the premium names imply, there's a whole lot of luxury available as you climb the trim ladder. The Reserve adds premium leather upholstery, quad-zone automatic climate control, ambient interior lighting, and more. The Black Label adds a ton of features including soft-close doors, heated and ventilated front and second-row seats, 30-way power-adjustable front seats, and more. If you literally want it all, check out the Black Label Grand Touring!
