GM’s crosstown rival, Ford Motor Company, just pulled the sheets on the 2025 Lincoln Aviator, unveiling a refreshed rival for the Cadillac XT6. The refresh includes new styling, a wealth of standard interior tech, and more. The new Aviator will launch this summer.
Outside, the refreshed 2025 Lincoln Aviator shows off an updated front fascia complete with a contoured mesh grille and restyled LED headlamps. Sequentially animated daytime running lamps are available. There’s also two new exterior colors options for Lincoln Black Label models, specifically Cenote Green and Whisper Blue Metallic. Further exterior upgrades can be had with the new Jet Package, which features unique wheels for each trim (up to 22 inches in diameter), plus black exterior accents and more.
Inside, you’ll find three rows of seating, a panoramic roof, and heated and ventilated front seats. The Lincoln Digital Experience system handles infotainment duties via a 13.2-touchscreen mounted on top of the dash, which is matched with a 12.4-inch instrument cluster. Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, as well as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless device charging, and a 5G wireless connection are all included as standard.
New for 2025 is Ford’s BlueCruise hands-free highway driving tech, which is available for Aviator for the first time in conjunction with the latest refresh. Lincoln Co-Pilot 360 2.1 is standard, bundling in Evasive Steering Assist, Lane-Keeping System with Blind Spot Information System, Reverse Brake Assist, and a 360-degree camera.
Motivation is derived from a standard twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine, which is rated at a maximum of 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. All of the go is harnessed by a 10-speed automatic transmission. Adaptive suspension is standard, while four-wheel drive is available.
The refreshed 2025 Lincoln Aviator will be assembled at Ford’s Chicago Assembly plant, and will officially launch during the summer months. Order books are open now.
