Lincoln’s biggest crossover probably won’t come with any bigger change for the next year. simply, things still look pretty fresh in every aspect, starting from the styling, ride quality etc. This particular version uses a plug-in hybrid setup that is powerful, smooth and refined. From what we know about the 2022 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring Hybrid SUV is that the biggest updates will come in terms of new color options. Other than that, things are about to remain the same.
The styling definitely won’t change, and we can say the same thing for the interior as well. The cabin looks good and offers plenty of space. Along with good insulation and a soft suspension setup, it ensures a pretty high level of comfort. Of course, the list of standard and available equipment is pretty long, while the intuitive infotainment is another strength of this crossover.
As there are no significant changes for the next year, we presume that the 2022 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring will hit the market sometime late in the year.
2022 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, things definitely won’t change. The current model has been around for a while and it shares a lot of things with the Explorer. This particularly refers to the new CD6 platform, which is RWD-based, which is a significant advantage over Cadillac XT6 and several more competitors. As we already mentioned, the suspension setup is on a soft side and provides a pretty comfortable ride. On the other hand, buyers who seek something more agile should search in other places.
When it comes to the styling, this crossover complements the rest of the lineup. It follows Lincoln’s new design language and given its age, we are pretty sure that bigger changes won’t happen for the next year. Still, we know that a couple of new color options will be introduced, such as Gilded Green and Bronze Smoke.
We don’t expect to see changes on the inside either. The cabin layout will certainly remain the same, with the dashboard design that looks stylish and upscale. Those classic aesthetics perfectly fits the model’s nature, while the materials and build quality are at a pretty high level as well.
Besides good overall quality, this cabin also offers plenty of space. This is a three-row crossover, which accommodates up to seven passengers. The first two rows are very generous with space. The third row is a little bit tight but can be useful in many situations.
The cargo area also offers some quite respectable numbers. You may count on about 18.3 cubic feet of space behind the third row, 41.8 cubic feet behind the second row, and a total of 77.7 cubic feet in total, which is above average for the segment.
Novelties in terms of standard equipment are always possible but we don’t expect anything significant for the next year. The list of standard equipment should be pretty similar to the current model. Therefore, the list of standard equipment should include goodies like a 10.1-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a 10-speaker stereo, keyless entry, remote start etc. Additionally, there are options like quad-climate controls, navigation, a rear-seat entertainment system, two more USB ports, HD Radio, premium audio system etc.
When it comes to safety, the current model comes with things like a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, forward automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist etc. Among available safety features, you can find things like reverse automatic emergency braking, parallel and perpendicular park assist, a surround-view parking camera system, evasive steering assist, and adaptive cruise control.
2022 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring Powertrain
Things under the hood definitely won’t change. The 2022 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring will continue with a familiar setup that’s based on a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine, which gets help from a 100-hp electric motor. The total output goes up to 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque, which is enough for pretty impressive performance. The power is sent via 10-speed automatic transmission, which also does a pretty nice job.
Besides the 100-hp electric motor, this SUV also comes with a 13.6-kWh battery pack, which ensures up to 21 miles in the EV mode. When it comes to fuel economy, this SUV averages around 25 mpg in a combined ride.
2022 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring Release Date and Price
As there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2022 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring will arrive sometime late in the year. We expect that the starting price will go around 70.000 dollars. Of course, key competitors will be more expensive versions of models like Cadillac XT6, Volvo XC90, Audi Q7 etc.
