Lately, more than ever before, I’ve been turning to time spent in my car as a moment to escape. As someone who is always on the go, attending events, adventuring, and more – the time outside of my house makes me feel like things are normal, at least for a little bit. I recently had the opportunity to partner with A Girls Guide to Cars to experience everything the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring has to offer and let me tell you it was everything I could have hoped for and more.
I mentioned that I am spending more time in my car, and that time isn\’t spent just driving around. Jack (my dog) and I have spent a lot of time driving, eating, and sleeping in the car. Since we\’ve been spending time in my personal car, I decided that we needed to spend the same quality time in the 2020 Lincoln Aviator and see how it stacks up. Today I am sharing 10 benefits of the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring – from a solo traveler (plus her pups) perspective.
10 Benefits of the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring
1. Large cargo area
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring is definitely designed for a family. With two captains chairs and a third row that seats three, the Lincoln Aviator is packed with plenty of family space. I don\’t have a family, however, I do need a large cargo area. When you put down the captain\’s chairs and third row, there is plenty of space for car camping necessities as well as a place to sleep.
Pro Tip: The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is quintessential if you want a vehicle that you can drive to work, but also take on a trip and sleep in. It\’s comfortable, spacious and brings you the best of both worlds.
2. Massaging front seats
As someone who is constantly on the road looking for her next adventure and sleeping in her car, the massaging driver and passenger seats are a game-changer. Relieve stress and tension when you turn on the massaging seats.
Pro Tip: I highly recommend turning on the massaging seats during long road trips. When you reach your destination you\’ll feel more relaxed.
3. Panoramic sunroof
The panoramic sunroof was one of my favorite features. I love letting as much sun and natural air in as I can, and the panoramic sunroof definitely allows you to do that.
Pro Tip: The panoramic sunroof is perfect for stargazing.
4. Revel sound system
The Revel sound system allows everyone in the cabin to enjoy a pristine listening experience. The system comes with 28 speakers that are placed in various locations throughout the 2020 Lincoln Aviator to provide a 3D listening effect.
Pro Tip: When you play the music that has been recorded live it actually sounds like you are right there at the concert.
5. Heated and air-conditioned seats
For many, heated seats have become more of a must-have item instead of a luxury. That being said, have you ever sat down into a leather seat in the summer and thought your skin was going to get third-degree burns? You can worry less about that with the air-conditioned seats. Turn on the air-conditioned seat button to cool the seats before you sit down. Better yet, turn them on so you\’ll be cool after being outside in the heat.
Pro Tip: The heated seats are great if you have a sore back. Combine the heated seats with a massage and you\’ll understand why I spend so much time in my car.
6. Co-Pilot 360
Meet Co-Pilot 360, your new best friend – also known as driver-assist and safety features. This includes adaptive cruise control, automatic high beam headlights, lane-keep, blind-spot monitors, steering assist, road sign recognition, and collision braking.
Pro Tip: All these safety features really do make you feel safer when you\’re out on the road.
7. 30-way electric seats with adjustable headrest and seatback
I am petite and always find it difficult to get comfortable in a car, this sometimes results in a miserable road trip. This was definitely not the case with the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring. You can actually contour the seat to you.
8. Several drive modes to choose from
With several drive modes available, the driver can customize how the 2020 Lincoln Aviator sets itself up for different conditions. The drive mode can be selected when you turn a knob, that is conveniently located in the center front console.
Get to know the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring drive modes
Normal drive mode provides comfort that is suitable for most conditions.
Conserve (eco) mode favors efficiency over aggressive handling.
Excite (sport) mode makes the performance a priority and will provide an exhilarating ride for adrenaline junkies or anyone who wants to add a little excitement to their commute.
Slippery (rain/snow/gravel) mode makes an effort to maintain traction.
Deep conditions (snow/sand) mode like slippery mode will make an effort to maintain traction.
9. Heads-up display
Head up display allows you to see how fast you are going, what the speed limit is, and sometimes more without having to lower your eyes.
Pro Tip: This is great when you need to be hyper-focused on the road because it is busy, or you\’re in a city with a lot of people around.
10. Active Park Assist
Can\’t parallel park? No problem! Not sure how you\’re going to get out of that parallel parking spot? Again, no problem! Active Park Assist will get you into that parallel parking spot with ease and out of it like a pro.
Overall thoughts: I absolutely loved driving the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring. The vehicle was safe, comfortable, and overall provided a wonderful driving experience.
