Lincoln Aviator is coming back. New York Auto Show will host the premiere of the mid-size crossover that should take a position between Nautilus and Navigator. The 2019 Lincoln Aviator will replace the MKT crossover, whose days came to the end. In less than two weeks we will find out the release date of the new SUV, as well as engine lineup. Lincoln will probably leave interior details and the info about the piece of new Aviator for some other time.
This crossover had a short stint 15 years ago. Aviator was well-known for its advanced technology and premium materials inside the cabin. This was a luxurious vehicle, and its successor has a tough task to continue this mission. Whatsoever, time is changing, and the situation on the SUV market is not the same. However, with all these attributes, the 2019 Lincoln Aviator will be capable to compete nowadays with all rivals in the mid-size segment.
2019 Lincoln Aviator Coming Back on March 28
There is no chance that Lincoln is not going to send Aviator into production shortly after the premiere of the concept. The debut is set for March 28 at NY motor show. However, this is going to be just a first preview of the SUV. Even the teaser doesn’t unveil too much. However, in New York, we expect to see the successor of MKT that founds its base in the Ford Explorer. Whatsoever, 2019 Lincoln Aviator will be equipped with much more luxurious equipment than its sibling.
Yes, the company already launched a teaser for the premiere. Nevertheless, we see almost nothing on it. Lincoln and Aviator badges are very similar to these we can find on new Nautilus. Logo on the front grille is enlightened, and that is all a teaser offers about the new SUV.
2019 Lincoln Aviator Release Date and Price
The 2019 Lincoln Aviator is a replacement of the MKT crossover, whose sales declined significantly in recent months. However, the company will keep the similar price tag for the upcoming SUV. Aviator will cost probably around $45,000. Premium crossover is bigger than Nautilus, so it costs more. On the other hand, Navigator is a flagship model which will cost a lot more.
Lincoln will probably set a release date for the end of this year. The premiere of the concept is not going to unveil all details, but launch date should be known after Auto Show in NY. However, the company already debuted with Nautilus, but the SUV is not yet available in salons.
2019 Lincoln Aviator vs Navigator
The previous edition of Lincoln Aviator was one of the most luxurious vehicles in the class. Advanced features and premium equipment made it different from the competition. Even in 2003, it had a DVD player. For that time, it was very futuristic and expensive. Now, Lincoln Navigator is following similar steps. It is one of the most luxurious vehicles in the entire industry, not only crossover segment. We doubt that 2019 Lincoln Aviator is coming back with the same idea. It will be more approachable, although the price is still premium. Whatsoever, the rookie won’t be a true competitor to Navigator right from the new start of its life.
