First Glimpse: '03 Lincoln Aviator
FIRST GLIMPSE: '03 LINCOLN AVIATOR
Lincoln's new mid-size SUV, the 2003 Aviator, makes its debut at the New York Auto Show later this month - but because it's going to be in the Vanity Fair Hollywood-themed issue on newsstands this week, Ford's sent us a shot so you won't have to actually buy a copy. The Aviator, Ford promises, will have the most flexible seating, roomiest cabin and best towing capability in its class. Based on the current Explorer sport-ute, the Aviator will sport a DOHC four-valve V-8 engine that produces at least 300 horsepower, a sophisticated four-wheel independent suspension and available all-wheel drive, according to the minimal press release. It goes on sale this summer.
