You'll have some issues with that one as well. First of all, if you want the light high-end interior on the Telli, you're not going to get it. Order/production-stop 'til the end of the year due to supply-issues.

Second, if you actually find a well equipped SX right now, be prepared to pay $5-10K OVER sticker.

And since you mentioned the Telluride:

Good review. But I’d take a telluride any day over this...just couldn’t look at that navigator...er, sorry, aviator front or butt everyday



I respect all personal opinions and choices, but prefer a KIA Telluride over a Lincoln Aviator (the best Lincoln ever, a vehicle that is actually on par with Audi, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz and BMW) cause this on me: :l mao::lma o:

Well, in terms of acceleration, at least. There are actually some drivability issues. The throttle is difficult to modulate smoothly from a start, at least when driving in hybrid mode with the plug-in battery portion fully drained. No matter how slowly and progressively we toe the pedal, there's a slight jerking as if the gasoline and electric motors aren't entirely getting along. The brake pedal is also a little bitey relative to the gas-only Aviator, which isn't unusual for a hybrid and is more easily acclimated to than the throttle.

All that extra battery weight also negatively impacts the ride due to the need for firmer spring rates. Despite riding on smaller wheels than the gas-only Aviator we drove, the Grand Touring has a somewhat nervous ride that transmits little road imperfections into the cabin.
——

I am wondering how much it would detract from the experience, this is not the kind of thing that a $90k buyer expects to experience in their brand new vehicle and a detailed review would be able to crack this open more.
I don't understand Autoblog's comments. They're the only one that I've seen that says anything negative about the GT model. Everything else I've seen has been positive and highly complimented its drive.

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

I was talking about hybrid reviews. Of the ones I read (or watched), the Autoblog one was the only one to mention drive issues.
...Motor1.com’s review also noted the issues, and noted that 500/630 will still probably only get you 5.5 to 60. Every reviewer stated the PHEV didn’t seem any faster at all. I was seriously interested in the GT, but it doesn’t sound like it will live up to the big numbers.

****, the Cayenne PHEV is much faster for about the same price, with less hp/tq, minus some of the lux goodies and in a slightly smaller package.

Actually I’m leaning towards palisade now. Smoke with a pearl interior. I just keep waffling because I like the traditional shifter in the t-ride, but palisade interior. I’m thinking next summer so no rush.

Kia/Hyundai did a brilliant job in the design and engineering of these. They cribbed a lot of features but their blind view cameras that display in the instrument panel, exit assist and seatbelt notification for all positions really stand out for me because of the kids I transport on the regular. I’m impressed with the attention to detail. And the price is incredible compared to the other meh vehicles out there. Both aviator and especially, xt6, are too expensive for what u get imo.

Several reviewers compared the interior of it to the Audi Q7 and BMW X7...except, it happens to be a lot cheaper.

I finally got around to reading Motor1’s review. They likened it to a “four wheeled fat thor” lmao!!

Anyway, as I said earlier, I hope they get any issues sorted out soon. Ford was smart to partner with Rivan...they can help with the EV part of the engineering.

Re: 2020 Lincoln Aviator First Drive

How many luxury CUV's allow you to drive to work all week, without using the ICE depending on range, and unlimited range on weekends while leaving your electric cord at home. Not too many. That is the whole idea of this Grand Touring Lincoln. No limitations. Some here will either never get that, or just ignore in their trolling efforts.

...Cayenne e-hybrid, BMW X5, Volvo XC90.

The X5 also has a 24kWh battery and 50mi of range. ****, my CT6 goes 30mi on a charge. This would be a big step back for my family with 18mi of range.

What I don’t get is an engineer stated that 20mi of range wouldn’t cut it any more and to expect more. Then, bam 18 mi of range. /sigh

Maybe the Mach-E won’t disappoint and Ford will finally produce something I can give them money for.
