Lincoln is still not updating the Aviator. The SUV is pretty much the same from its debut. With more than five years in the market, it could become boring. Well, the 2025 Lincoln Aviator will draw attention with its size and luxury offer. But, there are new mid-size SUVs that look newer.
The company is currently focused on the Aviator’s electric sibling. From what we’ve heard so far, the vehicle will come out in 2025 as the Lincoln Star. It is a logical step after the PHEV version for the Aviator. The highlight of the Grand Touring package is still a high-output V6 engine with a plug-in hybrid module and it’s coming back for the 2025 Lincoln Aviator.
Besides the Grand Touring, the new Aviator will also offer Standard, Reserve, and Black Label packages. The last one is the most luxurious. The company is thinking about the new themes for the interior. Another grade is possible. Of course, new features and options will refresh the lineup.
How Powerful the 2025 Lincoln Aviator Will Be?
Under the hood of the 2025 Lincoln Aviator will still be a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6. The company is not planning to add a V8. The existing setup is ready to deliver 400 hp and 415 lb-ft. For a midsize SUV class, this is a high output, but the Aviator is a luxury model, so everything is at a higher level, including power. A 10-speed automatic transmission is sending power to the rear wheels and AWD is standard. The gas mileage pays the cost of high power outputs – the Aviator returns 22 mpg with RWD and 20 mpg if you select an AWD.
A plug-in hybrid is increasing the power to 494 hp. The Grand Touring version of the SUV is one of the most potent PHEVs in the market. That is also a reason why the company is not considering a V8. The configuration also creates 630 lb-ft of torque. The gas mileage is 23 mpg. This hybrid is not the best setup for towing, with a limit of 5,600 pounds. Even the base V6 can do 2,000 lbs more.
All-Electric Aviator – Lincoln Star
The Lincoln Star is the first electric SUV by this company and one of three EVs that will be available in 2025. The carmaker presented the big SUV early in 2022. It is still a concept, but more details will be available next year, as the release date is approaching. Three years after the premiere, the technology evolved, so we can see even more impressive features on the 2025 Lincoln Star.
It will be the largest electric SUV in the lineup and many experts compare it to the Aviator. But the EV is laying on a totally different concept. So, besides the size, two SUVs won’t have too many things in common. But, we need to admit the importance of the Aviator and its PHEV in the further development of an all-electric SUV.
The company is not changing the winning combination. Aviator is one of the favorite big luxury SUVs thanks to all the premium materials and advanced options it uses. Lincoln is not complicating too much. The Standard package includes 19-inch wheels, high-beam LED lights, heated mirrors, power liftgate (not hands-free), 3-zone climate control, memory settings for the driver’s bucket… The safety package adds parking sensors, lane departure warning, and blind-spot monitor. The highlights of the multimedia are a 10-inch screen and a 10-speaker audio.
The Reserve model upgrades the Aviator with more premium equipment. Hands-free liftgate is standard, four-zone climate control as well, and ambient lighting. Navigation and wireless charging are added. What’s more, by selecting the Reserve model, you unlock a couple of more optional packages. Jet Package is a top upgrade for this one.
2025 Lincoln Aviator Black Label New Packages
There are three themes for the 2025 Lincoln Aviator Black Label interior. The company is going to revisit these and add a new design. We’ll see which one will be dropped. All three might be back – Flight, Chalet and Destination.
This is a unique upgrade for the Black Label, but there are many other features that make the package very luxurious. You are getting huge 22-inch wheels, soft-close doors, premium leather upholstery, HUD and Luxury Package and Elements Package Plus, optional on other trims. The Black Label also offers Jet Package as an additional upgrade, and it is available with the Grand Touring and PHEV system.
The MSRP of the Aviator SUV is competitive. The base version costs $55,000, which is at the same level with other entry-level midsize luxury SUVs. The PHEV system will cost at least $72,000. Black Label costs more, even with a standard petrol engine. The new package in combination with the plug-in hybrid engine, will be very close to $100,000. Optional upgrades will definitely push the price to the six-digit realm.
