As I've said for a while now, I do think that "Quiet Luxury" was a product of what was available to them, and now they can shift more toward that performance direction with the RWD platform finally arriving.Very curious about the "quiet flight" thing as well, because no matter how much Lincoln may want to avoid the "sport/luxury" pissing match, that very fight has made 400 hp very pedestrian in a hurry; no amount of determined PR side-stepping helps vehicles that don't stack up on stat sheets. Even halo brands need halo models of halo vehicles to draw attention to the brand as a whole.
I do like this Aviator concept, however...and think that a very slight "cleaning up" of certain styling elements for production could make it even more elegant.
I agree with everything! In video, The aviator looks much better in the frontal design. In the photos, I did not like the front end. I think the fact that in the pictures the headlights are darkened by the ambient light, and in the images, the whole headlights looks very silvery and stands out in a bad way. Around the grid there is a spat flat area, which does not appear in the videos either. (i mean the press videos)The front looks better in video than it does in still images. The front is still my least favorite aspect of the design, I still don't love the chubby Lincoln fascia no matter how you slice it but the overall body and rear is EXACTLY what I wanted from a Lincoln SUV design. That profile and rear quarter view is just perfect in every detail.

Yeah, I was hoping they'd name Co-Pilot360 something else too, but like SYNC, I guess they're trying to piggy back on the good will of that name.....but hey, at least it'll all be standard now without having top range models with all the safety tech still optional."Quiet Flight" vs "Quiet Luxury"...I'm not sure I can parse the differences there but it certainly matches the "Aviator" name.
Also of note is that Lincoln is also calling their system Co-Pilot360....a clumsy branding if ever there was one but it's a great suite of tech.
