Is the Lincoln Aviator a good buy?
Compare the features to the Explorer, then decide if you want to pay the extra dollars for the Aviator. But waiting for the 2021 I agree with since they are a new RWD platforms.
There are definite benefits with the Aviator plus a longer power train warranty. Read the reports in the various magazines including, but not limited to, Consumers Reports. Do your homework, then decide if the Aviator is a ‘good buy’.
