Lincoln introduced the 2020 Lincoln Aviator at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week, along with the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring—a plug-in hybrid version of the SUV equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine.
Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring
Lincoln Aviator will be available globally, entering the highest volume segment in the US, the midsize luxury market, and the third-highest volume segment in China.
The standard twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, paired with a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, is expected to deliver 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft (542 N·m) of torque.
With the hybrid option, Aviator Grand Touring’s twin-turbocharged engine and advanced electrified technology is targeted to deliver even greater levels of performance: 450 horsepower and 600 lb-ft (813 N·m) of torque.
In addition to Lincoln’s five signature Drive Modes—Normal, Conserve, Excite, Slippery and Deep Conditions—two new modes are engineered specifically for Aviator Grand Touring. These modes, Pure EV and Preserve EV, allow clients to choose when and how best to use their electric energy, while an enhanced Excite mode maximizes performance.
The under-floor battery packaging in Aviator Grand Touring allows for advanced technology without sacrificing cargo space.
The Aviator Grand Touring is capable of accepting a Level 1 or Level 2 charge. By charging at 240V at a public charging station, home-installed charging station, or with a Level 2 charge cord, owners will get a full charge in their Aviator Grand Touring within 3 to 4 hours.
