Lincoln Aviator Concept previewed ahead of the New York Auto Show

The keen Canadian eyes at
Autoguide spotted on
Lincoln Canada’s Twitter feed that the
Lincoln Aviator will be resurrected at the 2018
New York Auto Show in two weeks, albeit in
concept car form. Given that today’s
Continental and
Navigator were previewed with thinly veiled concepts, it’s therefore safe to assume that we’ll eventually see a production
Aviator.

According to
Automotive News back in 2016, Aviator should be a three-row
crossover based on the next-generation
Explorer. So essentially, it will replace the
MKT, which was last seen picking people up at your local airport and essentially nowhere else.

For those of you who don’t recall, this would not be the
first Lincoln Aviator. The original sold from 2002 to 2005 was also based on the
Ford Explorer, and although relatively well-received by
car reviewing types at the time, it never caught on with the buying public. Its failure is still a bit surprising given the similar SUV fever of that era.

The resurrection of the Aviator name also coincides with the return of
Continental and the introduction of
Nautilus, which replaces the
MKX. However, have no fear MK enthusiasts, the
MKZ and
MKC still live on. You can be in charge of letting people know just exactly which cars those are.
