Re: Rumor Mill: Lincoln Aviator to Return on D6

^ just-imhO
the D6 MK-replacement (WIC) can't happen until the Explorer is ready to switch to a new platform OR they start playing musical-factories
BUT
I'm all in favor of of a major re-do of the MKT using the Flex with the front of the new MKX
( = mkXLG ... NOT "Aviator" tho )


&
think you're referring to this chart from the beginning of last October

imhO,
so little info, most of it is open to interpretation - within reason
edit:
iirc that^ came out JUST before FLincMoCo announced plans to invest $5 billion within that timeframe
edit²:
added a version I made using the aluminNavi's Job1 date for the time-scale
WHICH
now that I look at it again
has those 4 (FOUR) new vehicles bottom right, that could ALL be D6/CD6

Re: Rumor Mill: Lincoln Aviator to Return on D6

A few questions/thoughts:

1. Was the Aviator pushed forward in the brand timeline? If it hits the market before the Continental, like the article suggests, it must have been fast-tracked. Given the favorable market climate for crossovers, that may not be a bad thing.

2. Were those two new models to be released IN 2020 or BEFORE 2020?

I can't wait for the Lincstang to be unveiled in 2019.

Re: Rumor Mill: Lincoln Aviator to Return on D6

I've heard the same on the D6. It's supposedly about as versatile as a platform can get, FWD, RWD, AWD, length and width is variable. Makes sense to have Explorer and Aviator based off the architecture with Explorer being FWD/AWD and Aviator being RWD/AWD. This would help in differentiating the products which is a hot button subject as of late.

The full size Transit still comes with FWB, RWD, and AWD.

That'd be OK......neat way to divvy it up, too, imo.

You know no more than us your words aren't fact at some point ford has to invest more money into Lincoln especially if the contribute more to the bottom line. Lincoln has some interesting vehicles in the pipeline as a Lincoln fan you should be happy but you always come in with this anti Lincoln view and down play anything they do.
All articles repeating the same false rumor.

And I said NOTHING about the GT, ever! I said the Lincstang was bogus, and it was!
