2021 Lincoln Aviator

vs 2021 BMW X5

As the pinnacle of power, the 2021 Lincoln Aviator allows you to soar to new heights — and with seating for up to seven in this gorgeous, three-row SUV, friends and family can come along for the ride, too. The Aviator offers two available powertrains — gas or electric — so no matter your preference, long-distance journeys come with a confidence that only Lincoln supplies. You’ll experience the sound of sanctuary inside its quiet cabin, thanks to available Active Noise Control that prevents the noisy chaos of the outside from interrupting your drive. High-end materials, like premium wood trim or available Nappa leather, sweep the interior with touchable softness that’s subtly sophisticated. We know that as soon as you sit in the driver’s seat of the Aviator, you’ll never want to leave.

The luxury SUV is a packed category, and some buyers may be confused on which brand will offer them the convenience they desire. We’ve noticed that the 2021 BMW X5 is close to being a top competitor this year, so we’ve placed the two models side-by-side for you to compare yourself:

What an impressive battle. Both models offer supreme performance with their standard engines and grounded handling with their own version of available all-wheel drive. But the similarities stop there. The 2021 Lincoln Aviator has two extra speeds in its standard transmission so smooth-shifting agility is always at your command. Its available sound system (the Revel Ultima 3D Audio System) has 28 speakers scattered throughout the cabin for the ultimate surround sound experience; the 2021 X5 only goes up to 16 speakers. Adjust your available Perfect Position front seat in up to 30 different configurations — the BMW X5 can only offer 20. And if that’s not all, the Lincoln Aviator reaches new levels of luxury with symphonic chimes that play when your door is ajar for a truly relaxed, attention-grabbing sound.
