2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2020 Lincoln Aviator

A luxury crossover SUV will not be amazing if it is not equipped with excellent features and a highly-capable engine. These specifications make the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE impressive compared to most of its competitors. Every model year seems to offer more than the already applauded features. It also looks more refined with every design update. For the 2020 version, a full redesign has been given and it is so exciting to explore what is in store with the latest GLE.

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is technically a mix of the Navigator and the Continental models. Its presence is hard to miss mainly because of its compelling posture. Let us find out if combining the Navigator and Continental’s characteristics sit well on the new Aviator.

Design & Style

The GLE started the segment and it is not surprising that it sets the standards for the design qualities of a true luxury crossover SUV. The toned exterior is designed not only to make it sleeker but also to help with aerodynamics. The intricate details are not mainly for an attractive exterior but also to keep it fuel efficient.

The Aviator is convincingly upscale with its handsome exterior. The mesh grille, tall front end, and the draped roofline look simple but it worked well in achieving a subtle yet classy look.

Technology & Safety

As a front liner for the newest in-car tech, the new MBUX is consistently amazing with its human-like capabilities. It listens and responds with natural voice commands. It uses AI in analyzing and remembering your preferences.

The Aviator has good infotainment but it is not the best in its segment, especially when compared against the MBUX. There are enough standard tech features for it to be called as a luxury vehicle but those are not as advanced compared to most cars in its segment.


The GLE’s performance is remarkable with a turbocharged, 255 hp engine. It is fast and flexible, characteristics that are needed for a spirited driving experience. There is also an option to set the driving characteristics according to your style via the Dynamic Select feature.

The Aviator could have plenty of power with its 3.0 liter V-6 engine but it is significantly hindered by its curb weight.

The Bottom Line

The potent powertrain on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE makes it seemingly like the perfect luxury crossover SUV. You may call it as a luxurious off-roader because it can easily handle difficult road conditions. The 2020 Lincoln Aviator may have the combined characteristics of other Lincoln cars but it is still not enough to become as powerful and attractive as the GLE.
