2020 Lincoln Aviator Comparison
One look at the 2020 Lincoln Aviator, and you’ll spot a sharp design no other SUV can mimic. Starting with the Reserve’s grille, you’ll get a sleek chrome design framing that iconic Lincoln Star Logo. Select the Grand Touring trim, and Star logo designs surround the Star badge for a unique look.

Both models feature a sloping roof and ultra-smooth lines for a suave silhouette. Move to the back, and a wrap-around windshield crafts a refined touch—setting the tone for the luxury drives you’re about to embark upon.

Alongside a smooth design, the 2020 Lincoln Aviator also offers a swift drive and comfortable interior that’s hard to rival. As proof, let’s compare the 2020 Lincoln Aviator to another power-house SUV, the 2020 Cadillac XT6.

Two Motors; One Smooth ride

When you get behind the wheel of the Lincoln Aviator, one of two motors carry you to your next adventures.

Take a drive in the Lincoln Aviator Reserve, and a Twin-Turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine offers you a fun and fast ride with 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft torque. If you’re looking for efficiency, the Grand Touring model also packs a 3.0L V6 motor alongside an electric motor. But don’t think you’re losing out on power; with 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft torque, you’ll drive one of the block’s fastest and smoothest SUVs.

For more smoothness, opt for the available Air Glide Suspension. Instead of hard coil springs, air bladders inflate and deflate at opportune moments to create a responsive and relaxing drive anywhere you cruise. Even when riding over rocky roads and potholes, you’ll understand how this suspension received its name when you feel like you’re sailing through the air.

By comparison, the Cadillac XT6 packs a standard 3.6L V6 engine with 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft torque. No doubt it’s a fun ride, but it’s also not quite the power you’ll find when behind the wheel of Lincoln’s SUV. You’ll also have your choice between MacPherson strut coil spring front suspension or available performance suspension for responsive handling. However, take a ride with the Air Glide Suspension, and you’ll get a drive no other SUV can replicate.

Because of the massive power output and ultra-smooth suspension, the 2020 Lincoln Aviator takes this round.

A Suite of Modern Tech and Luxury Behind Each Drive

Sit inside the 2020 Lincoln Aviator, and make yourself comfortable in the standard leather-trimmed heated and ventilated seats. To make your life cozier, quad-zone electronic temperature controls allow you and your passengers in the front and back to set the heat or A/C to your liking.

Making your rides more efficient and fun is a standard SYNC 3 10.1-inch touchscreen. With standard WAZE integration, you’ll outsmart traffic by rerouting around jams and accidents before you even arrive on the scene—almost ensuring you’ll never arrive late again.

For finding your favourite tunes, TIDAL streaming grants you access to more than 60 million songs inside your Lincoln. Opt for the available Revel Ultima 3D audio system, and you’ll have 28 speakers throughout your cabin offering you the ultimate surround experience that rivals your local theatre.

Get behind the wheel of the Cadillac XT6, and the available Bose Performance Series 14-speaker system offers you crisp sound for your rides. You’ll also kick back with standard heated leather seating in the front and back—and ventilated seats in the front. To further meet your demands, tri-zone climate controls come standard. And when you’re ready to connect with your settings and media, an 8-inch Cadillac User Experience touchscreen is there to help.

For this round, the 2020 Lincoln Aviator takes another win. The available stereo system offers more than double the speakers for dynamic sound while quad-zone climate controls and ventilated seating in the back make for a fun drive for everyone onboard.

Blending Safety and Luxury

When you ride in the 2020 Lincoln Aviator, you’ll ride in confidence with standard and available driver-assist features.

Standard Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking sends you a warning when a fender-bender or collision with a pedestrian seems likely. If you don’t react, your Lincoln automatically brakes for you to help you avoid an accident.

With Forward and reverse Sensing System by your side, you’ll park like a pro, with your SUV sending you alerts when it detects objects that are hard to see.

When stopping isn’t enough, available Evasive Steering Assist helps you steer around obstructions. It’s one of your best options for avoiding collisions without disrupting the flow of traffic behind you.

By comparison, the 2020 Cadillac XT6 packs the same standard features like Pre-Collision Warnings and Forward and Reverse Sensing. With that in mind, this round is ultra-close. However, the inclusion of available Evasive Steering Assist helps the Lincoln edge out a win thanks to a practical safety feature that can help you steer clear of collisions in heavy traffic and unpredictable moments.
