Lincoln Aviator owners manuals
- Several Aviator owners claiming a range of problems, such as unintended car movement, signs of leaks, and climate control issues.
The Lincoln Aviator is a mid-size luxury SUV marketed by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company. Slotted within the Lincoln Nautilus and Lincoln Navigator in size, the Aviator is currently in its second generation.
The Aviator was built from 2003 to 2005 in its first-generation model years as a rebadged model of the Mercury Mountaineer. After the Lincoln Versailles and Lincoln Blackwood pickup truck, the Aviator was one of the shortest cars ever produced and marketed by Lincoln. For the 2007 model year, Lincoln increased its use of SUVs; the MKX offered a comparable exterior body style while the MKT (launched in 2009) offered the three-row seating of the Aviator.
The Aviator returned to the Lincoln model series for the 2020 model year which is based on the new Ford Explorer. The Aviator is also offered as a plug-in hybrid variant.
The Lincoln Aviator's 400-hp twin-turbo V-6 engine is one of the most powerful standard engines in the mid-size luxury SUV segment. The refined 3.0-liter V-6 engine paired with a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission to deliver both smooth cruising and impressive acceleration.
