Lincoln will offer a plug-in hybrid version of its new Aviator three-row SUV that it revealed at the New York International Auto Show on March 28, the company announced.
The 2019 Aviator will offer a turbocharged gasoline engine as its standard engine when it goes on sale next year. It may compete against other midsize luxury SUVs such as the BMW X5 and Lexus RX.
A twin-turbocharged engine will power the Aviator, which will also offer a long wheelbase and rear-wheel drivetrain. Lincoln will pair the hybrid system with the twin-turbocharged engine.
On the inside, the Aviator will offer a 12-inch instrument cluster display. It will offer Co-Pilot360, an advanced suite of driver-assisting technologies that includes automatic emergency braking, blind spot information, lane keeping, a back-up camera, and auto high beams.
