Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Lincoln Aviator comes with a 4 yr./ 50000 mi. basic warranty, a unlimited yr./ unlimited mi. roadside warranty, and a 6 yr./ 70000 mi. powertrain warranty.Minor changes to option and appearance packages.

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

Cons
Doesn't have an abundance of headroom
Overly soft handling saps driver confidence
Subpar visibility to the front and rear

The 2021 Lincoln Aviator drops sensational style and space, but the Grand Touring plug-in’s a bit of a misfire.

Pros
A 7/8ths Navigator
Big infotainment displays
Hybrid plug-in
Lots of room for four adults
Gorgeous Black Label interiors

Cons
It’s $$$$
Third row is small
The V-6 moans
Grand Touring: not electric enough?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The Aviator sees only minor changes for 2021, including optional 21- and 22-inch wheel designs, three new colors (Asher Gray, Ocean Drive Blue, and Flight Blue), and an available Monochromatic Reserve appearance package. The Reserve trim receives a panoramic sunroof, and the top-flight Black Label gains soft-close doors. The Elements package—found on the Reserve and Grand Touring models—now comes with heated and ventilated front seats.

Pros
Polished turbo V-6 powertrain,
comfortable interior,
plenty of curb appeal.

Cons
Unrefined optional hybrid powertrain,
disappointing fuel economy,
most expensive Black Label trim encroaches Navigator's price range.

By:

For 2020, the MDX carries over without any changes to its appearance, mechanical components, or available features. The lineup continues to offer a gasoline and gas-electric hybrid model as well as a second-row bench that allows up to seven passengers or captain's chairs that seat up to six. However, Acura did increase the base price of the regular MDX and the Sport Hybrid by $100.

Pros
Entertaining to drive—for a three-row crossover, quick and smooth hybrid powertrain, standard driver assists.

Cons
Unremarkable passenger space, quirky touchscreen setup, options inflate the price.

By:

The 2020 Acura MDX is a stately three-row family crossover that has aged well.

PROS
Handsome looks
Confident power
Spread-out space
Good efficiency from hybrid
Standard active safety features

CONS
Pricey options packages
Top trims don’t feel quite as luxurious as we’d expect
Third row can be cramped for tall adults
Shallow cargo area

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2020 Acura MDX Hybrid comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual.No significant changes for 2020.

Pros
Generous array of features and active driver aids for the money
Excellent all-wheel-drive system allows for sharp handling
Generous interior storage
Quiet, comfortable and spacious cabin

Cons
Cabin looks and feels less luxurious than those of some rivals
Adaptive cruise control can be slow to respond and abrupt when it does
Dual-screen infotainment system can be quite difficult to use
Handoff between all-electric and engine power is clunky
