It was problematic when first introduced on the Edge and MKX.  I’m guessing they’re still seeing problems with it and just deleted it.

I thought that too, but it looks like it will be standard on the higher end 2021 F150s... starting with King Ranch.

Probably not very useful and potentially problematic, better  without. 

 

The monochromatic option is quite attractive, if the price is right. The new convenience package is not attractive any more, the only thing worth to have in the package is HUD.

 Ont eh element plus package,   the" Auto Air Refresh and Auto Heated/Ventilated Driver and Passengers Seats" was added with "Auto" don't know what that means. 

Auto air refresh will sample air quality and circulate air through a new two stage combi filter (with carbon layer) when required.  Auto heated/ventilated seats will activate them along with the auto HVAC settings, instead of having to turn them on/off manually every time.   You can still override them manually.

That is very nice.

That’s the lane keep assist - still there.  Adaptive steering changes the steering ratio.  Think of it as being able to shift gears on the steering wheel - 1st gear gives you faster and easier turns at slow speeds while 5th gear makes it more comfortable on the highway with less wheel movement.

Does anyone know when a VIN for a 2021 be generated.  Is it when the vehicle is scheduled?  what exactly does "scheduling begins" mean?  Thank you.

Went to the local Lincoln dealer over the weekend and there are quite a few Aviators, and a lot more Navigators. Drove a Preserve II without the Dynamic package,  very nice. The seat is not narrow at all, and very comfortable. Asked price for 2021 and the salesman said not ready to order yet, no price information. 

Does anyone know when can we actually order the 2021 model. It is almost October, has the production started yet?

I think the salesman is might be wrong. I have already ordered a 2021 Explorer and it is scheduled for production. They are built in the same factory, so I would think that they would be able to price out and order an Aviator. Maybe, he just wants to sell the one's that are on the lot first.

Ford has issued a safety recall for certain 2021 Lincoln Aviator models and 2021 Ford Explorer models:  https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/ford/2020/12/22/ford-2021-e-series-explorer-aviator-recall-burn-power-loss/4004823001/

 

When will the assembly plant get their act together and stop the problems with production?
