2020 Lincoln Aviator vs. Its Competition

Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The 2020 Aviator is a savvy rival for pricey mid-size Euro-brand SUVs, but those utility vehicles have strong allegiance for many reasons.

The Audi Q7 sports three rows of seats, sober styling, and touchscreens in seemingly every direction.

The latest BMW X5 has a very handsome interior and exterior that are backed by an air suspension that’s equally fluent on and off road.

Jaguar’s F-Pace has two rows of seats, a pretty organic shape, and supercharged V-6 power; its I-Pace has 234 stated miles of battery-electric driving range and a striking look, but we’ve measured more like 200 miles of range in everyday driving.

The new Benz GLE-Class has a trick suspension, new 6-cylinder engines, and a stylish cockpit—and a stiff upward adjustment on its price tag.

Finally, we’d also look at the Kia Telluride, a luxury SUV in almost every dimension save for its badge.
