    damn :bowdown:
    my friend just got one (03) in black. (he had an exursion).
    It is so fucking badass. It's so luxurious in the interior, great leather, great electronics, etc.
    And over 300hp RWD, it actually sounds badass too. we smoked a nsx-type s and an lt1 caprice :bigthumb: definitley one of the cooler SUV's .

    Too bad it's being discontuined, and will be replaced with something close to this in the next couple years:

    The next-generation Aviator will be a new kind of Lincoln – its first-ever, car-based SUV.
    Aviator remains an integral part of the Lincoln lineup and is evolving to meet customer demand.
    The teaser vehicle that debuts at the 2004 North American International Auto Show signals future Lincoln entry.

    Lincoln’s next-generation Aviator will "crossover" to a car-based platform, enhancing Lincoln’s lineup, while maintaining its place as Lincoln’s entry in the mid-sized SUV segment. A teaser of the luxury SUV debuts at the 2004 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

    The medium-size utility vehicle segment is one of the fastest-growing premium segments in the industry. Dubbed a crossover sport utility vehicle, Aviator’s move to a car-based platform will help Lincoln deliver a very competitively priced vehicle – one with exceptional comfort, elegant design and effortless driving – everything customers expect from a Lincoln.

    A signature bright metal strip inspired by the 1961 Continental begins at the grille, runs over the fenders, frames the full-length glass roof and ends at the lower tailgate, accentuating the vehicle’s profile. The all-glass roof provides a panoramic, overhead view.

    One of the most noticeable characteristics is a new Lincoln grille, a trait to watch for on future Lincoln models. The polished egg-crate grille, reminiscent of elegant Continental models of the past, features a rhythmic pattern of solid horizontal and vertical chrome trim. The grille surround encompasses the headlamps, a cue also from the 1961 Lincoln Continental. The new face incorporates a nearly 2-by-4-inch Lincoln star and a bright horizontal blade by the lower air intake.

    Its 21-inch spoked wheels, made from a combination of cast and polished aluminum, feature wheel caps with the Lincoln star at the center. Additional polished bright work can be found running the length of the side windows, on the door handles, head and tail lamps and vehicle badging.

    For occupant safety, high-strength steel, monocoque construction utilizes hydroformed components to create a rigid, safe body shell for optimal protection. Additional safety features include dual stage driver and passenger air bags, including side air bags, integrated seat belts in all seats with belt pretensioners, three-point rear safety belts, automatically monitored and adjusted tire pressure sensing system and high performance brakes with ABS.

    rethink that, as the Type-S version of the NSX has NEVER been imported to the US...

    Next time you see him, you should tell him you're racing.

    my supervisor just bought one in pearl white.

    the interior is sweet. :) but i don't like the concept...it's just an explorer with lincoln badges. :sad2:

    that concept is a nice idea though...stray away from the traditional.

    Aviators are really nice, but for the money there are a lot of other vehicles I would rather buy.
