The Ford Motoricon1.png Company [NYSE:F] is working on a highly modular platform to underpin most of Lincoln’s next-generation lineup as well as a few Ford-badged models, and according to a new report one of the models could be an SUV reviving the Aviator nameplate. The last Lincoln Aviator bowed out of the market in 2005.

The Truth About Cars, citing an anonymous source, is reporting that Lincoln plans to drop its unloved MKT and replace it with a new model twinned with the next Explorer, and that the new model is being referred to internally as the “Aviator”. The source also said the MKT’s Ford twin, the Flex, will also be dropped.

This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard about the potential new Aviator. Late last year we reported that the next Explorer and a Lincoln twin would be based on a new rear-wheel-drive platform being developed by Ford, helping to further differentiate them from the front-wheel-drive-based Edge and MKX. It was later revealed that the new platform will be a highly modular design capable of front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive applicationsicon1.png, and that the development is being spearheaded by Lincoln’s chief Kumar Galhotra.
