Lincoln, an old American company that is known for its line of luxury automobiles, was founded by Henry M. Leland. Originally, the Lincoln Motor Company built aircraft engines but after the war, it shifted its course towards the production of high-class luxury vehicles. In 1922, it was bought by Ford Motor Company and was marketed under the Lincoln-Mercury division. Since its inception in 1917, Lincoln marque maintained a reputation of excellent craftsmanship, design and drivability. In 1998, the Lincoln brand was considered as the best-selling luxury make in the United States of America. Not to be outdone by foreign and domestic counterparts, it shares parts and platforms with Ford to update its line of vehicles.
For the 2003 model year, Lincoln introduced a mid-size luxury SUV, the Lincoln Aviator, along with its Ford Explorer counterpart. The Aviator is a smaller and less expensive version of the Lincoln Navigator, which was introduced five years earlier. It is more than a foot shorter, four inches narrower and about six inches lower than the full-size Navigator. While the bigger SUV seats eight, the Aviator accommodates six to seven adults. The two vehicles also shares body styling and exterior features including the chrome waterfall grille and roof rack. Although it shares the Explorer's platform and independent rear suspension, the Aviator is a bit longer and wider. Its suspension is specially tuned and is equipped with lighter components for better ride quality.
Complementing Aviator's luxurious and well-appointed interior is a potent V8 that delivers an impressive 302 horsepower and a massive 300 lb-ft of torque. Airflow is maximized by the aluminum four-valve heads and intake manifold with variable-length runners, which ultimately increase the engine's performance. Aviator's high-power engine provides great towing capacity, which reaches up to 7,100 lbs when the full-time all-wheel-drive system is used. On rough terrains, dry roads and slippery pavements that require excellent grip, Lincoln's AWD can excellently handle the vehicle as it automatically transfers power to the wheels with the best traction. The Aviator is equipped with a variable-assist power rack-and-pinion steering that easily turns the steering wheel during low-speed driving and automatically tightens it up during high-speed driving.
