The Corsair, Nautilus, and Aviator now have access to a new styling package.
Even amid a tough second quarter that hit many brands hard, Lincoln managed to increase its retail share in the premium SUV segment by an estimated 1.5 percent, driven by solid demand for the Aviator and Corsair. This takes Lincoln's overall share in the segment to above seven percent.
To add even more appeal, the brand will now be extending the availability of its Monochromatic Package which made its debut on the full-size Navigator last year. That means that the package will now also be available on the Aviator, Corsair, and Nautilus.
According to Lincoln, the monochromatic color scheme has proved popular in fields like home decor and fashion, although nobody needed to tell us about the trend of darkened exterior trim upgrades. Audi, for instance, offers a Black Optic Package on some models, while the leaked Mercedes-AMG GT R Black Series looks mean with its moody aesthetic upgrades and black wheels.
Lincoln customers can choose from four colors: Pristine White, Infinite Black, Ceramic Pearl, and Asher Gray. However, not all these colors can be optioned on every SUV; for instance, the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus can only be specced with the Infinite Black shade. Choosing either of these options changes the color of the grille and Lincoln badge to a monochromatic shade.
The monochromatic trim is complemented by black wheels measuring either 20- or 22-inches in size. Select vehicles will also have additional features like lower cladding. We will say that the package does add an air of menace and sophistication to Lincoln's SUVs, which are already quite handsome in base form.
"The monochromatic palette is clean, uncluttered and emphasizes the beautiful lines of our Lincoln SUVs," said the brand's chief exterior designer, Earl Lucas. Although Lincoln didn't provide pricing, we jumped onto its online configurator and were able to add the Monochromatic Package to the 2020 Navigator Reserve for an additional $3,495 and to the 2020 Nautilus Reserve for an extra $1,895.
