Lincoln Aviator Gen I History


Gen I or Generation I Lincoln Aviators were produced from 2003-2005 and were all made at Ford's St. Louis Assembly Plant in Hazelwood, Missouri.


They were available in either 2WD or 4WD configurations, however, all used Ford's venerable modular 4.6L DOHC engine that was also used in the Ford Mustang SVT Cobra and Mercury Marauder. It was rated at 302 hp (225 kW) and 300 ft-lbs of torque and was teamed up with a 5R55E automatic transmission.


The last Lincoln Aviator was produced on 10 August 2005.  It was originally expected to disappear for one model year and return back as a 2007 model year product, however, Lincoln decided to launch it was a twin to the Ford Edge and named in the Lincoln MKX.


The absence of the Lincoln Aviator has created a serious gap in Lincoln's product line up as the MKX only has two rows of seats and the next vehicle up in size is the Navigator, which is substantially larger. 


A new Lincoln Aviator is expected to arrive sometime in 2017 as a 2018 model and will be based off of the Ford Explorer.
