The 2025 Lincoln Aviator has arrived with plenty of changes inside and out, including an updated front end and the introduction of a new Lincoln Digital Experience infotainment system. The SUV also follows the rest of the Lincoln lineup in gaining BlueCruise hands-free driving.




Styling changes are limited to the front, where a larger grille is flanked by redesigned headlights, which feature updated daytime running lights that now extend into the grille. The SUV also adds a new feature called Lincoln Embrace, which plays animations through the lights to both greet and bid farewell to the driver.


The rest of the exterior updates revolve around new colors and wheels. The most expensive Black Label model adds Cenote Green and Whisper Blue to its color palette, and all trims now offer the Jet package with its black exterior accents. The Reserve and Black Label models are also now available with a black finish for their respective 21- and 22-inch wheels.


Things remain the same mechanically, as the Aviator is still powered by a twin-turbo 2.0 liter V6 that delivers 400 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. That power is sent to either the rear wheels or all four via a 10-speed automatic transmission. Like the similarly-updated Ford Explorer, the Aviator loses its hybrid option.


The SUV still offers an air suspension, which includes a kneel mode that can lower the vehicle by up to 2.4 inches for easier ingress and egress. Elsewhere, the Aviator downgrades to a Class III trailer hitch that enables a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, whereas last year's model offered a Class IV hitch with a 6,700-pound towing capacity.



The interior is somewhat similar to last year's model, though atop the dashboard there now sits a huge 13.2-inch touchscreen display. It packs a whole new Google-based infotainment system, which was developed in-house by Lincoln using Android Automotive OS as a base. Voice commands are central to controlling this system, with either Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa available to use. The Aviator also continues to support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wirelessly. The infotainment display shares its processor with a new 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, which can now display full information from Google Maps.


Parking the Aviator allows access to the Google Play Store, enabling occupants to stream videos through YouTube and Amazon Prime, or surf the web via Google Chrome or Vivaldi. Connecting a Bluetooth controller will also enable occupants to play a variety of video games. Over-the-air updates are also supported, and an eventual update is expected to bring video-conferencing apps into the mix. As if all of that wasn't enough, the new system also comes with a WiFi hotspot and a 5G connection through Lincoln's Premium Connectivity plan. The first year is complimentary, but these features will require a subscription once that first year ends.




The interior changes aren't limited to tech, however. There's a new wireless charging pad on the center console, and the push-button shifter now incorporates the start button for the engine. The digital gauge cluster loses its binnacle, and the second row now includes a 5.8-inch display for climate and media controls.


There are also a couple of new interior color themes, including Harvest Bronze and Hot Chocolate, both paired with Onyx Black trim, on the Reserve model. The more expensive Black Label adds a new Invitation color theme that incorporates Onyx black leather upholstery with brandy contrast stitching and Khaya tree open-pore wood trim.


The addition of BlueCruise hands-free driving is another notable upgrade for the Aviator, though the SUV also has an expansive list of standard driver-assistance features, including a blind-spot monitor, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and a 360-degree camera system.


The 2025 Lincoln Aviator will hit the road this summer, though order books are already open. Pricing begins at $59,890 for the base Premiere, while the Reserve costs $68,890 and the Black Label tops things off at $88,390.
