5 reasons to buy the 2021 Lincoln Aviator

1. Lots of cargo space

If you're shopping for a family car with an optional third row that's perfect for shuttling to baseball practice or dance recitals, you have tons of options. One thing that makes the 2021 Lincoln Aviator stand out is its huge cargo hold. It offers a substantial 18.3 cu-ft of cargo space behind the third row and 41.8 cu-ft behind the second row. When you fold down both rows of seating, you get an impressive total of 77.7 cu-ft. This means the 2021 Aviator can hold everything you need for camping trips, days at the beach, or even helping your oldest move into their college dorm, all without compromising on passenger space.

2. Towing capacity

Do you always have an extra toy in tow? The 2021 Lincoln Aviator is up to the task of pulling your boat, horse trailer, or small camper. With the standard 400-hp 3.0L twin turbo V6 engine, the 2021 Aviator can tow up to an estimated 6,700 pounds when properly equipped.

Look for an Aviator with the available Class IV Trailer Tow Package to add features like trailer sway control, and blind spot detection with trailer coverage.

3. Tons of standard features

If you've got a taste for the finer things, you'll love that the 2021 Lincoln Aviator comes brimming with standard features that make it feel downright luxurious. Synthetic leather seats, heated in front, come standard, while ventilated and massaging front seats and heated second-row seats are available options. The standard key-based remote start, a power liftgate, and a power-folding third row add to the upscale feel. A standard 10.1-inch touchscreen and 10-speaker audio system make it easy to enjoy your music while you're on the road.

4. Interesting technology

Are you always using your phone in the latest and greatest ways? Here's a new one: with the 2021 Lincoln Aviator, you can unlock the driver's door and start the engine as long as you have your smartphone nearby, using the available Phone As A Key feature (which must be activated).

The 2021 Lincoln Navigator can also act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for all seven people in the vehicle, and for up to 50 feet around the vehicle—a great perk for remote camping or afternoons spent on the sidelines of sports games.
(This feature comes standard but requires activation.)

5. Driver-assist features

For drivers who like a bit of extra peace of mind behind the wheel, the 2021 Lincoln Aviator comes with lots of standard driver assist features. Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist, and emergency braking all come standard, as do automatic high beams and rain-sensing windshield wipers. If you have a teen or new driver, you'll appreciate the standard MyKey, which allows you to restrict speed and volume for certain operators. Even more driver assist features, including a surround-view parking camera system, are available options.
