Default Lincoln Aviator

Another lightly disguised production car. And, holy hell, this is actually pretty damn impressive. I esp like the dash design (although the vents look too small to be terribly useful). I actually think the production car will look better w/ normal tires and wheels. I am not in the market for large (sorry, 200 in isn't midsized) luxury SUV but, if I were, I would seriously look at this.

Nicely done, Lincoln.

The America Range Rover sport (profile and all) that Cadillac should’ve had to market already. This should get some younger buyers in the showroom. Nice job Lincoln!

Very impressive, and one of the highlights at the 2018 New York Auto Show! What's also impressive is that it's on an all-new chassis that's RWD-bias, and will be shared with it's Ford Explorer cousins. The chassis is flexible and can underpin upcoming cars, too, although Ford is focusing more on trucks, SUVs and crossovers. More details will be released as time goes on.

Yery good looking SUV, clean detailing, classic proportions (do the RWD proportions indeed mean the Explorer will be RWD too?), this looks as expensive as an XC90 or Range Rover (and IMO better resolved than the ugly, FWD looking Audi Q7)

Very nice actually. Range Rover is overpriced rubbish, but then there are no other RWD-based CUVs/SUVs/Vans that are practical. Either a FWD Highlander/Kluger, RWD-based CUVs that are not practical like Maserati Levant, or RWD-based SUVs that look like 4x4 but are not.

That is a home run. It deserves to sell in crazy numbers. I like the mini-Navigator feel of it. Poor Cadillac.

Should have been exported to Europe, but will not sell, Europeans are German s*ckers.

While not as practical, a slightly slopped roof line would have made it even better.

The rear light setup kind of reminds me something saab would have done.

This is quite a looker! Will definitely consider this when the lease is up on my wife’s 2017 Acadia Denali.
