Lincoln Aviator Introduces Advanced Suspension

Lincoln-first Adaptive Suspension with Road Preview debuts in the all-new Aviator.

Lincoln’s advanced Adaptive Suspension system pairs pothole mitigation and road preview technology to deliver a smooth drive, using 12 sensors that monitor vehicle motion, body movement, steering, acceleration and braking activities. These sensors read the road 500 times per second and automatically adjust settings up to 100 times per second.

“The system in Aviator is so advanced that its sensors speed-read the road ahead and adjust the system faster than a blink of an eye, with more than 23,000 inputs of data per second,” says David Russell, vehicle dynamics technical specialist, The Lincoln Motor Company.

The pothole mitigation stiffens the shock absorbers to reduce the amount of drop, thereby lessening the impact on the tire, with each wheel responding independently.

Technology utilization

Together, the advance suspension system and the Road Preview use a forward-facing camera that reads the road surface 50 feet ahead to look for upcoming bumps between two to eight inches to prepare the suspension.

The Aviator’s Air Glide Suspension enhances the ride by replacing traditional hard coil springs with guided air springs and enabling several preset ride heights.

“Not every journey is smooth,” says Russell. “But we can make the ride more refined so you can just sit back and enjoy it all.”

Delivery date

The all-new 2020 Lincoln Aviator will arrive this summer as a new entry in the three-row luxury SUV segment.

The Aviator Grand Touring will incorporate a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine with advanced electrified hybrid technology and fast torque.
