Lincoln first showed its new three-row 2020 Aviator SUV back in late 2018, and the initial specs were promising: 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque for the base 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 model, and 450 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque for the Grand Touring hybrid version. Well, it turns out those numbers were a bit low.
Lincoln recently confirmed finalized outputs for the base and Grand Touring Aviators, and the numbers are seriously impressive. The standard V-6 Aviator makes the same 400 horsepower, but its torque number has been bumped to 415 lb-ft. The hybrid model now makes 494 horsepower—just one horsepower off the new mid-engine Corvette—and a massive 630 lb-ft of torque. That’s more than a Ferrari 812 Superfast.
Lincoln told Autoblog the hybrid uses a 13.6 kWh battery pack paired with a 101-horsepower electric motor. It’ll have two modes—one for charging the battery up to 75 percent while driving, and another that focuses on running the vehicle in electric-only mode.
Lincoln has yet to share performance numbers like 0-60 mph time or top speed, though with that kind of power, we’re betting the Aviator hybrid should be impressive.
