The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is a three-row SUV that fits in the Lincoln lineup just beneath the Navigator. It's rear-drive-based and shares its underpinnings with the new rear-drive Ford Explorer. Part of the second Aviator generation introduced for the 2020 model year

Pros
Upscale design inside and out
Powerful standard engine
Lots of advanced features
Available plug-in hybrid powertrain

Cons
Third row is not really suitable for adults
Perfect Position seats add lots of complexity for minor gains in comfort
Price can rise quickly with options

A baby Navigator, in the best ways
Wide-screen infotainment and displays
Plug-in hybrid power
Versatile three-row seating
A stunning interior

Cons
Puts the $$$ in $$$$

For 2021, Mercedes gifts the GLC lineup with more standard features and more standalone options. A passive hands-free entry as well as a self-parking function and rear cross-traffic alert are now included on every model. Automatic high-beam assist and a 360-degree camera system are now available separately on a GLC300 without being bundled as part of a package.

Pros
Quiet and refined,
gorgeous and spacious interior,
more space inside than a C-Class.

Cons
Lacks driving verve,
limited cargo space,
most driver assists aren't standard should you want them.

Top prices approach $100,000
