Lincoln To Kill The Continental

  Lincoln To Kill The Continental Lincoln will discontinue the Continental once the current generation has run its course, a decision that comes not two years after the upscale automaker revived the storied nameplate. The revelation comes from Ford Authority, which cites "sources intricately familiar with Ford's future product plans for its Lincoln brand." That anonymous source was unable to say why the company plans to cut the 2018 Lincoln Continental, but it's not hard to draw yet another line between the falling sales of sedans and the ever-increasing popularity of crossovers and SUVs.

22 hours ago. Crisp, modern styling is the tip of the iceberg.

Lincoln wowed the 2018 New York International Auto Show when it revealed the Aviator, a preview of the SUV expected to arrive in time for the 2020 model year. The Aviator views Lincoln’s design language through a sleeker, more modern lens, with styling clearly inspired by the Navigator but with just a bit more modern verve.

It made perfect sense to offer a similar upgrade package for the new Navigator, which has essentially the same engine.

Lincoln says using the name Aviator was a deliberate choice. The brand last marketed a vehicle called the Aviator from 2003 to 2005, and like the preview model shown this year, it was a three-row SUV with mini-Navigator styling. But the new Aviator takes more inspiration from the world of aeronautics.

“In Aviator, the lines of the vehicle are streamlined,” said Lincoln Design Director David Woodhouse. “You have the stature and presence of the grille at the front, then the body and tail taper off – creating a distinct aerofoil analogy.”

The Aviator gets Lincoln’s bold chrome grille, plucked seemingly intact from the Navigator, but it gets sharper, hawk-eye headlamps with large, distinctive LED elements set inside. A short front overhang and graceful, smooth bodysides have a very premium look, with no extraneous filigree to muddle the design. The roofline is highest above the driver’s head, before flowing downward toward the taillight to give the side profile a distinct impression of motion. Helping in that mission is a rising beltline, with the side window opening trimmed in two pieces of chrome trim.

The 2018 Navigator finally matches the Cadillac Escalade in both kitschy flair and genuine class. I so completely agree, those wheels are so avant garde , it is amazing they kept them, class and taste. With the MKC, Continental and now new Navigator they are getting their design style back.

A full-width taillight bar instantly identifies the Aviator as a Lincoln, but its design is much sharper and shapelier than that of the Navigator or Continental. Brightly polished quad exhaust pipes join with abundant metallic trim found elsewhere on the vehicle to bedazzle the view from every angle. We don’t usually like chrome that much, but a Lincoln wouldn’t be a Lincoln without lots of brightwork, and it definitely gives the Aviator a little extra sparkle.

The 2020 Aviator should be based on a new rear-/all-wheel-drive platform shared with the next Ford Explorer. That platform will be able to make use of Lincoln’s twin-turbocharged powertrains, which are specifically mentioned as the Aviator’s likely engines. We’d presume Lincoln will offer both the 2.7L and 3.0L twin-turbo V-6s in the Aviator, with the former producing 335 hp and 380 lb-ft and the latter making an even 400 ponies and pounds. Routing power to the rear or all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic gearbox, the Aviator should be a willing performer with either engine.

Preview: Lincoln Aviator

  Preview: Lincoln Aviator  Lincoln has revealed the Aviator, its all-new three-row sport-utility vehicle, at a media event prior to the 2018 New York International Auto Show. Is there really space for three luxury Lincoln SUVs – Navigator, Aviator, and Nautilus – in our market?The new model contains a few firsts for the automaker, including pothole detection and a cellphone key, and will be available as a plug-in hybrid.The Aviator is one of two new SUVs that Lincoln will launch by 2020, along with the upcoming Nautilus, which will replace the current MKX. It’s expected that the Aviator will go on sale sometime in 2019.

The efforts are beginning to pay off, most notably with the gracefully modern design of the new mid-sized Lincoln Aviator at the 2018 New York International Auto Show .

That’s what I see when I look at the brand- new Lincoln Aviator , which just debuted at the 2018 NYIAS . In fact, it actually sort of reminds me of a Mercedes, in terms of its style and control placement, such as the seat controls which are on the door.

What’s more, Lincoln promises the Aviator will also boast a plug-in hybrid powertrain with one of those turbocharged mills, giving the SUV more power than some supercars, according to the company: “This combination of power and electrified capability will help Aviator deliver Lincoln’s quietest, smoothest, most powerful drive yet.” Given the Navigator makes 450 hp, don’t be surprised if Lincoln’s plug-in hybrid Aviator is capable of producing nearly 500 hp and plenty of instant-on torque, a staggering number for any family SUV, much less a Lincoln.

And a family SUV it will be. Lincoln is targeting younger families with the Aviator, as the medium luxury utility segment attracted a majority of 35- to 44-year-old buyers in 2017, and the size class accounted for a quarter of all premium SUV sales last year as well. Befitting the big market will be a big interior with lots of amenities. Lincoln says the Aviator will be the first vehicle to feature phone-as-key technology, activated through the Lincoln Way app. Unlocking, starting, and driving the car will no longer require a keyfob. In the event the phone goes dead or is lost, the driver can enter the Aviator via a five-digit door code, then start the vehicle through the touchscreen.

The Aviator prototype comes with Lincoln Perfect Position 30-way front seat adjustment, and the second-row seat reclines and slides, balancing comfort and space between the second and third rows. Standard Wi-Fi means everyone in the Aviator can stay connected on the move, and wireless phone charging up front, multiple power outlets throughout the interior, and convenient media storage will keep passengers’ devices juiced up as well.

Interior styling is as modern and attractive as the Navigator, with lots of horizontal lines emphasizing the vehicle’s width and creating an open, airy environment. The freestanding touchscreen display rises from a span of engine-turned aluminum (furthering the aviation connection), and mercifully, we see plenty of physical buttons on the center console, hopefully enhancing ergonomics. Overall, the appearance of the interior is simultaneously contemporary and retro, thanks to the midcentury modern styling.

The Aviator prototype shown in New York might not be exactly the machine we get for the 2020 model year, but don’t expect the production model to change much, if at all. We could see Lincoln ditching some of the brightwork in the front bumper, replacing some of the exotic interior trims with more production-friendly materials, and enlarging the sideview mirrors. But the show car’s overall proportions and styling are likely exactly what we’ll get in Lincoln showrooms next year.

Lincoln Navigator Smashes March Sales Records With Triple-Digit Increase

  Lincoln Navigator Smashes March Sales Records With Triple-Digit Increase Besides the mighty sales increase, high-paying customers boosted the Navigator's average transaction price.In a statement about its first-quarter sales results, the Blue Oval highlighted the success of the Navigator while also claiming that SUVs, in general, delivered an all-time record sales for the third month of the year with a sales increase of 7.3 percent. Retail sales of the new Navigator grew a massive 101.6 percent compared to March of last year, with the average transaction price also growing a ridiculous $25,600 per vehicle. That's basically the cost of a decently equipped Ford Escape tacked on to the Navigator's already hefty price tag.

“The Lincoln Navigator continues to turn heads and bring new clients to the brand,” says Joy Falotico, president, The Lincoln Motor Company. 2018 NYIAS : 2019 lincoln aviator l world premiere.

The company is obviously mum on pricing, but don’t be surprised if the base Aviator starts at $45,000 or more, replacing the $43,530 2018 MKT crossover and slotting in above the smaller Nautilus. And the plug-in hybrid Aviator will almost assuredly crest $80,000, doing battle not just with family crossovers, but more performance-oriented machines like the BMW X5 xDrive50i, Porsche Cayenne S, and Mercedes-Benz GLS550.

When the production Aviator arrives, it will herald Lincoln’s expanding relevance in today’s luxury market. With bold American styling, plenty of power, an electrified powertrain, and that Mad Men–chic Lincoln star, the Aviator is almost guaranteed to be a hit.
