    Good News Bad News

    Ok glad to hear you guys are going to get what you ordered! The Verdict: Lincoln writing us a check for $900. We’re fine with it because we’re leasing and don’t expect passengers to really need the full console for now. The alternative would have been to re-order and wait for the new one (while being aviator-less). To address some suggestions that the dealer could fix it, they said there’s not a kit to made the mod at this time.

    I don’t know the details of how they install the consoles, but I imagine the job could cost them several thousands of dollars - especially if they didn’t run a wiring harness to that position universally to plug in the full console if that option is selected. We asked about having them replace it and it didn’t sound like an option.

    Thanks! We’ll see what the manager comes back with tomorrow after speaking to the Lincoln rep. We met with the Sales Manager as soon as the issue was discovered. They pulled up the order and verified that the full console option was selected. I have it on my copy of the order and they were able to verify in their system that we did in fact select the option. We did purposefully select the full console when ordering, it wasn’t something we assumed would be a default configuration. I’ll keep you posted!

    Good news: Got our 2022 BL Aviator today!! Flight blue with chalet interior - it’s awesome. Bad news: We configured the car when we ordered it to have the full console, but they built it with the mini console (cup holders and a tray on the floor of the car that doesn’t include: extra storage, more charging ports, and controls for opening and closing the sunroof shade). We didn’t want to reorder and wait months more for a new one…so we asked the dealer to contact Lincoln to see what they can do (write us a check). We’ll see what happens! Bottom line: if you configured your order to have a full console, do whatever you can to verify that the car will actually come with it. Our window sticker didn’t list the console configuration, so I don’t know if it would state “full console” if they built it correctly. Let me know!

    '22 Navigator Revealed

    Agreed. I like the front end improvements as well, but that rear lightbar is what makes it so much nicer. A lot less truck-like.

    Dealer Number

    @ice-capades thank you! I put the dealer code and VIN into the Cassens transport tracker but it says nothing found so far.

    Tracking Explorer Shipment

    I’ve been checking that site with the VIN for my Aviator (same factory as Explorer) and it says “pending” with an air bill number and a few other things. But hasn’t changed in a few weeks, including now that we’ve been notified by Lincoln that the car is now built as of a couple days ago. There’s another site: https://www.cassens.com/pages/tracking/ that can be used, but you’ll need the dealer “number” in addition to the VIN in order to get results. I asked my sales guy for the dealer number and Ice on this site hoping to get it eventually so I can try it out too.

    2022 Lincoln Aviator Production Information

    We got our “Built” email from Lincoln today! The estimated delivery date is 9/22, but our dealership is 2-3 hours away from the Chicago plant so we’re hoping it’ll show up sooner 😁

    Hi! Would you be able to look up the dealer code for Wickstrom Lincoln (Ford) in Barrington, Illinois? thank you!

    2022 Lincoln Aviator Production Information

    We ordered in June but everything from July 29th onward was pretty much the same for us, give or take a few days for each update.

    Hardwire Radar Detector

    Would you mind sharing photos of your installation? I’m particularly interested in the mount to the mirror and the path that the wire takes to get to the fuse box (and how the wire is hidden).

    Shutdown Coming to Chicago?

    Just means we aren’t missing out for now 😁

    Shutdown Coming to Chicago?

    Ah ok - phew! I guess I should have asked for clarification. Got nervous thinking I missed out on opting out for my Aviator order. Thanks!

    Could you link or screenshot where you saw that auto start stop was optional for ‘22’s?
