Im not a fan of two tone paint schemes, but that works very well.

Re: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

I think a vehicle has to be designed with two tone in mind for it to work.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

Re: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

Quite pleased with the Aviator aside from it not immediately evoking RWD proportions from some angles, and viewpoints.

Re: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

Only thing I don't like is the black plastic bumpers and side skirts on reserve trim. I understand the need for cost cutting but it really frustrates me when I figured Lincoln doesn't offer an upgrade for the volume trim that paints the bumpers in the same color as body.

All basic cars of all brands have small flaws that make high-end versions desirable.



Making cars is a business...

With the exemption of the X7, all BMW X-series standard models come like that (including the new X5). I guess that's how it is these days...

Current rides:
2017 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Black Label
2017 Audi Q7 Prestige

Re: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

So I went with my dad to Detroit! Took the drive from Philly this past weekend (Thurs-Sunday)

Very successful venture overall! We had a great time as usual! I have lots of photos that I'll put in an album for you guys, but the Aviator was incredible in person. It was directly next to Cadillac's XT6 reveal and it put the XT6 to shame, visually, and buzz-wise. Lincoln stand was packed and had both a BL Navi to sit in and the Continental Coach-door. Overall the show was great. Germans weren't there (except VW; side note - love the new Tiguan) but tbh they always have so many cars locked that I don't really feel like we missed much. Lincoln was shining. Truly.

Hopping into the Escalade after being in a BL Navigator was borderline shocking. Caddy needs to get that new model out. LOVE the CT6-V and I'm sad that car is getting cancelled. But even then, Lincoln raised the bar with having the coach door present. Even if it's a limited run (and sold out!), the presence was huge for public perception.

MKC and MKZ are clearly more "Old Lincoln" than the rest of the lineup, but with 2 Navi's, 2 Continentals, 1 Nautilus (Unlocked. Feels good. New fascia really steps up the whole vibe.), and of course the star, the Aviator, the stand handily outshined Infiniti, Genesis, or really kind of anyone there except Alfa Romeo (and maybe Lexus if you're into Lexus), but they only have 3 models. The 4C is a timeless design. Love Alfa. Really want to lease a Giulia some day.

As far as the city is concerned, I'm continually impressed by Detroit's ability to improve our experience visiting year by year. The city is bouncing back and they're not wasting much time in the grand scheme of things. Love investing in the local shops and bars and such as a tourist. Love being a part of the comeback. Now that I'm an aerospace engineer living alone and making a salary, I'm thinking of some property investment. Detroit has a bright future.

Had a bitchin' time and I'm looking forward to a summer visit next year for NAIAS 2020. Hopefully by then we have a new MKC/Corsair and maybe a new concept and lack of MKZ.

I'll put together a better write-up and include my thoughts on the Ford section. It was totally killer. 10/10, thanks Detroit!

CT6 isn't getting canceled after all. They're just moving production. Unfortunately, the CT6-V is also limited run and all 250 are already sold.

Oh wow I missed that news! What great news. The CT6 is my favorite in their lineup by far.

Also - Caddy did a great job on the XT4. It's the perfect size and a good price to capture a lot of business. Felt on the cheap side on the inside but honestly at its price point I don't really see a problem with that. I was impressed. Definitely my 2nd choice in its segment, behind only the new Q3.





Sorry I'm just realizing I'm getting off topic. I'll post some stuff in the NAIAS thread later today.

Audi has always been known for their understated elegance, in this case I think the Cadillac beats them at their own game, at least in terms of exterior design. I hope the Corsair improves in terms of both style, and space utilization as the MKC falls well short in both.
