The Aviator had a base price was $40,000 for the rear wheel drive model and $43,000 for the four wheel drive model. In a decision that some think proved fateful, Lincoln decided to only offer one engine option: a 4.6 liter V8.
This SUV actually received good reviews by most magazines. It was a dependable luxury SUV that did everything just as well as the Navigator but with better fuel economy. Unfortunately for Lincoln, people didn't like the fact that it looked almost identical to the Navigator, a style that they had become familiar with over many years.
The only option in terms of transmissions was the 5 speed automatic. That's common for a luxury vehicle, and this SUV was never really intended to go offroad.
Although the name is gone, the replacement vehicle, the Lincoln MKX is a continuation of the same type of vehicle.
These cars can be found out there on the used car market. People may have forgot them, and that's good for potential buyers. Try looking on eBay for some great deals.
