The 2020 Lincoln Aviator has a lot to offer luxury SUV buyers. The standard engine is a 400-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. The 494-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine combines with an electric motor on the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring to produce a plug-in hybrid powertrain with 21 miles of pure electric range. With the proper equipment, this luxury SUV can tow up to 6,700 pounds. When equipped with rear-wheel-drive, expect 18 city/26 highway mpg. However, adding all-wheel-drive will change the figures to 17/24 mpg instead. The Grand Touring plug-in hybrid gets the best fuel economy estimated at 30 city/34 highway mpg (EPA-estimated 56 MPGe).

2020 Range Rover Sport Safety Reviews & Ratings

Standard safety features include parking sensors, a rearview camera, low-speed automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning.
