Re: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

No time to scan the articles, but did they elaborate on the new hybrid system? It will literally be the same system for fuel economy bias or performance bias. But even the performance application will be more efficient, if compared to a more powerful ICE to meet same numbers.

The rest of the vehicle is perfect. Perfect! I love there are more than one grille, one specific for a Black Label models...
Many companies are separating the turn signal from the headlight assembly. Honestly, I think a big part of it has to do with how bright headlights are these days - it's often hard to see the signal "around" the headlight, so separating it eliminates that issue.

...so, maybe you can provide insight. A C&D article quoted the lead engineer as stating the battery was really meant for performance and not electric mobility. This seems to contradict an earlier statement by another Ford engineer who claimed that Ford recognized that hybrid buyers expected more range than previous versions and that the Aviator would be competitive with the new models arriving on the market. China requires a min 50km(31mi) range to qualify in their market. The new PHEV BMWs(the Aviator's direct competitor X5 specifically) are coming to market with 80km(50mi) ranges. Should we expect the same from Lincoln or be prepared for disappointment on the range front in an otherwise stellar effort from Lincoln?

I would hope that Lincoln would not target the minimum and then have to re-engineer when China increases the requirement. I hope that's Strategic Planning 101 but ...

I literally don't know what was shared and when it will all be revealed, so I need to play it safe.
All I can say is that both systems (comparing to Explorer) are essentially the same, but will function differently.

WOW Lincoln! Great Job! My MKZ Hybrid, I love it, but I may have just found my next vehicle. Love it!

Re: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

Bronco, Bronco II, Aviator, new Explorer and Escape and of course new Corsa hitting the market in coming months, all with efficient and affordable hybrid options, probably weighed into the corporate decision to NOT invest the billions needed to totally revamp their low margin sedans. Because if people are shunning sedans today, imagine how much more they will shun them when very competitive, fun and fuel efficient CUV/SUV options are available.

You can still have that range and also be geared toward performance. That could be taken as they could've gone for a lot more range, but kept range lower to give a performance edge.

They didn't specify range in any announcements I saw.

I told my mom the power figures from the hybrid last night, and she was like "what? from a hybrid?" She's used to thinking of a hybrid as a Prius type ultra mileage setup.
