Spy Shots: ‘07 Lincoln Aviator


Recommended Posts

Pictures at link: http://www.thecarconnection.com/Enthusiast...S178.A9431.html

The first pictures of the 2007 Aviator wearing its production sheetmetal have been taken - and the Aviator is shaping up quite similar to the new Ford Edge we showed you two weeks ago on TCC.

Riding on the new CD3 platform, the Aviator will compete with the likes of Acura's MDX and the Lexus RX. It will likely be powered by a new 3.5-liter V-6 with 245 horsepower, with other engine options to follow.

The Aviator will begin production in August of 2006 in Oakville , Ont., alongside its sibling, Ford's new Edge. And although the profile may look like the Edge, there are many exterior differences in the front and back. With clearly unique styling, the Aviator carries the concept's taillight design across the back of the tailgate, and incorporates many Lincoln cues up front in its grille and headlamps.

Front-wheel drive will be standard, with an all-wheel-drive version also available.

Oh, great!  What'd they do - steal Buick's full-width tailight design?


Lincoln used it on the Mark VIII, Continental, and I think another vehicle but not sure.

Plus Buick seems to have abandoned it!

Yeah, Lincoln has used a full-width taillamp treatment on and off for lots of years. Can someone post a pic of the Aviator concept with the cool 60's-style Lincoln front end? I really hope the production version follows through.

Looks pretty bland, and I never liked the bloated 2004 concept car anyway. Carbon copies of already mediocre-looking Fords that don't live up to there name I think will be the big killer of Lincoln.

So is this supposed to compete with the Equinox/Torrent/Cute Ute portion of the market?


This isn't a small cute ute. It's in the next size class up. It's also luxury, so it'll compete with the MDX/RX/FX/M-Class/X5 etc.
