A few days ago Ford unveiled the updated 2025 Ford Explorer and now we have our first look at its cousin, the 2025 Lincoln Aviator. For its midlife refresh, the 2025 Aviator SUV arrives with an updated face, new connected technologies and the BlueCruise hands-free highway driving system.

Starting with the exterior, the 2025 Aviator gets a bolder face thanks to a new grille, headlights and daytime running lights. The 2025 Aviator Black Label versions are available in two new colors: Cenote Green and Whisper Blue Metallic.

“The new Aviator looks more planted with a more dynamic presence than ever before. The changes we made to our signature grille shows our laser-focus on details and design that pulls you in. And with our new lighting features which we call ‘jewelry,’ the Lincoln star comes to life and immediately catches your attention.” – Kemal Curic, design director, Lincoln.

To provide more customization, a new Jet Package adds unique wheels, black exterior accents and body color front and rear fascia. The Lincoln Black Label Special Edition adds a black roof, 22-inch Ebony Black wheels with an adaptive suspension and black exterior accents. Aviator Reserve models will offer four new interior color schemes: Onyx, Light Space Gray, Harvest Bronze with Onyx accents, and Hot Chocolate with Onyx accents.

The 2025 Aviator can also be equipped with the Lincoln Black Label Invitation theme, which adds open-pore Khaya wood, Black Onyx leather seats and handwritten calligraphy. A pergola- inspired perforation appears on Savannah luxury leather seating surfaces in black, with detailed Brandy-colored stitching.

On the tech front, the new Lincoln Digital Experience system gives drivers access to their favorite apps and services from Google and Amazon. The system can be personalized so that once the driver enters the Aviator their favorite apps and content are displayed. When parked, you can watch videos and stream movies with apps like YoutTube and Prime Video.

The Aviator’s digital screens have been updated with a larger 13.2-inch touchscreen over the center stack and a new 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster. The Aviator also comes standard with four years of the BlueCruise hands-free system.

The Aviator comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that generates 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque, that’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The 2025 Lincoln Aviator will arrive this summer.
