With the 2018 New York Auto Show kicking off towards the end of March, a lot of high-end carmakers are fully-prepping their latest models and concepts. From Lincoln comes the new Aviator concept, now revealed in the teaser video below.
Arriving in New York starting with March 28th, Lincoln`s new Aviator concept is a new interpretation of luxury meeting technology, comprising an extremely-evolutionary design and the latest high-tech gadgetries.
The new Aviator is also likely to borrow some styling elements from the well-known Navigator, also becoming the predecessor of the MKT, which hasn’t met success at its highest level during its years of existence on the market. It will thus sit between the Nautilus and Navigator.
Overall, the Lincoln Aviator will comprise the carmaker`s design philosophy, also seen on the Navigator, featuring as well its own bits like wider front grille with illuminated Lincoln emblem.
As for interior highlights, recent reports state that the cabin would be as luxurious as any other new models from Lincoln, or even more luxurious. We are looking here at premium leather upholstery, wood trim or the company`s latest SYNC infotainment system.
As for motorizations under the hood, the new Lincoln Aviator is likely to come as well with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, just like the future Explorer. As for the standard powertrain, according to the latest rumors, we could find the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, also found on the Lincoln Continental or the MKZ. However, the output would be significantly higher than the present 400 horsepower and 542 Nm of torque.
After the official introduction at the 2018 New York Auto Show, the new Aviator will arrive in dealerships across the United States somewhere next year.
