Should You Buy A 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring PHEV (Video)

We take a look at the pros and cons of buying a new 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring PHEV

2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring PHEV Pros

  • Impressive comfort with some of the best seats in the industry
  • A long list of technology including using your phone to unlock and start the Aviator
  • Fuel economy of the PHEV version is impressive

2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring PHEV Cons

  • Soft handling and not very sporty
  • PHEV version is very expensive
  • The digital instrument cluster isn’t as impressive as some other competitors. There are some usability issues as well.

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring PHEV is the grand daddy of the redesigned Lincoln Aviator range. It’s not only the top-of-the-line model, but it’s also powered by a plug-in hybrid engine unlike the rest of the Aviator lineup.

The plug-in hybrid powertrain is no slouch either. It pairs a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 with an electric motor to deliver an impressive 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. That’s quite the jump over the 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque of the “regular” Aviator.


Second Opinion

Should You Buy a 2020 Lincoln Aviator?


Not only is the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring more powerful, it’s also capable of running on electric power alone for just over 32 kilometres (21 miles). Compared to the twin-turbo V6 only, the PHEV powertrain is world’s apart in terms of efficiency.

It’s not cheap, however. At $81,000 in Canada and $68,800 in the US, the Grand Touring is a cool $12k more than the base Aviator in Canada. Once your done with taxes and fees and everything else, you’re looking at a $100k SUV, again in Canada. That’s a lot of money that can get you a lot of SUVs. So how does the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring PHEV stack up? Check out our video review.
