Review: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

Today we are going to present the review of the 2020 Aviator Grand Touring hybrid plugin. In addition to the electrified transmission, Grand Touring is like its non-hybrid model and boasts the exact intelligent tech as Phone as Key and Co-Pilot 360 - and the exact major rate of extravagance and finish.

Nevertheless, with more strength, more sophistication and the ability for an important increase in efficiency, the first Lincoln twin-turbo V6 hybrid promises to increase the bar for the brand.

The Grand Touring combines a 3-liter twin-turbocharged Aviator V6 motor with a 75 kW (100 horsepower) electric engine. With their blended power, power is increased to 494 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torsion. This is an increase of 94 pony peaks and 215 lb-ft compared to the non-hybrid version.

All-wheel drive is regular on the Grand Touring - there is no option with rear-wheel drive, like the regular model. The Aviator plugin has the similar 10-speed automatic gearbox as the non-hybrid, but with a little bit revised gear ratios to better correspond to the hybrid's output.

The energy for this electric engine is stored in a 13.6 kWh battery, hidden under the cargo floor. Fully charged, it will power the Aviator Grand Touring for approximately 18–20 miles of full electric range before the gasoline engine for hybrid work starts.

By connecting the Aviator Grand Touring, you can charge the battery in 3-4 hours on a 240-volt charging station of level 2. Connecting to a 110-volt outlet at home will allow you to charge the battery in just over 12 hours.

The battery does not burn out at all in the Aviator's cargo compartment — which corresponds to 18.3 cubic feet of non-hybrid cargo volume behind the third row or 41.8 cubic feet with the third row folded — but it requires a smaller 18 gallon gas tank against a standard model 20.2 gallon tank.
