2022 Lincoln Aviator vs 2022 Ford Explorer

Two SUVs may appear on your list when searching for a new one. Both the 2022 Lincoln Aviator and the 2022 Ford Explorer offer many options for Shreveport, Bossier City, and Stonewall, Louisiana motorists, but, of course, you only want one car at a time. Rountree Lincoln devised this comparison to see how they measure so that you'll feel confident in your decision.

Lincoln Aviator vs Ford Explorer: Interior

Most of what's offered in the Lincoln Aviator and the Ford Explorer mirror one another, like the optional Active Motion® massage function for your front seats. But a few items stand out in favor of the Lincoln SUV.

Although the seats combine heat, ventilation, and massage for a spa-like experience, only the Lincoln Aviator offers 30-way adjustability for the available Perfect Position front seats. These seats can configure into the ideal setup for maximum visibility and comfort.

To equally circulate cool air and provide temperature dials for you, your co-pilot, the second row, and the third row, optional Quad-Zone Climate Controls can be added to the Lincoln Aviator. At its best, the Explorer features a tri-zone electronic automatic climate control system.

Two diverse roofs let plenty of natural light into the cabin. The Lincoln Aviator can be equipped with an available panoramic Vista Roof®. With the Ford Explorer, an optional twin-panel moonroof can be added. In this case, you'll want to see which you would prefer.

Lincoln Aviator vs Ford Explorer: Technology

Both vehicles sport their own versions of a 10.1-inch touchscreen. For the Lincoln Aviator, the touchscreen comes standard and appears in a Center Stack Display. In the Ford, it is available and provides a portrait-oriented touchscreen.

On this touchscreen, operate your stereo and pick the tunes you want to hear. An optional 28-speaker Revel® Ultima 3D Audio System masterfully takes over the cabin if you choose it. The Ford carries fewer than half the number of speakers with its available 12-speaker B&O® Sound System by Bang & Olufsen®.

Get a quick debriefing on your Lincoln Aviator windshield of your car's operations through the optional head-up display. Unfortunately, the Ford doesn't offer this feature.

Lincoln Aviator vs Ford Explorer: Performance

The Lincoln Aviator has the advantage in a few of the performance factors on-board each SUV. You'll start with a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. That matches the stats of the available Ford Explorer 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine.

Depending on how much you wish to load in your trailer, you'll want to know which vehicle can support you. If you're considering the Lincoln Aviator, it can tow a maximum of 6,700 pounds when properly equipped. The Ford cannot match this with a capacity of up to 5,600 pounds when properly configured.

What kind of drivetrain do you favor? While both SUVs give you rear-wheel drive as standard, they part ways when it comes to the optional drivetrain. The Lincoln Aviator uses an available all-wheel drive system, and the Ford offers optional Intelligent 4WD (4-wheel drive). If you like one or the other for tackling less-than-ideal conditions, make sure you get the right vehicle.

What Tops Your List? 2022 Lincoln Aviator vs 2022 Ford Explorer

Narrow down the list to the one car you want between the 2022 Lincoln Aviator and the 2022 Ford Explorer. With all its refined features and superb performance, you'll see that the Lincoln Aviator offers more for Shreveport, Bossier City, and Stonewall, LA, drivers.
